easy peasy

I’m enjoying being on Nutrisystem, because the food is good, I know exactly what to order now, and everything is conveniently packaged, there’s very little cooking involved, and the calories are already counted for me.  I eat every 3 hours or so, so I don’t have as many cravings as I used to.  And, I pay $311 a month for NS, plus extra for veggies and eating out.  I’m saving money, I’m eating better and I’m losing weight.  That’s the whole point of it.

 When I fill my lunch bag in the morning, it’s like, “This muffin will be breakfast, string cheese for a snack, a Southwest Fiesta melt for lunch, believe I’ll do a salad with a boiled egg added for my afternoon snack.  Then when I get home, I’ll nuke a NS dinner meal, and later have a bowl of hot air popcorn.  Easy peasy!

 Of course I change things up.  But Monday through Friday, it’s usually something like the above. 

 On the weekends I’m more relaxed with eating.  Like Friday, I spent the day with Moke and Kasey and we went to TX Roadhouse, and I got a 6 oz. sirloin, salad with low-cal Ranch and steamed vegetables.  It was delicious!  I didn’t eat any of their rolls, and I love love their rolls.

 Then Saturday, I went to Jeff and Katie’s and we went to Schobels’ Restaurant, which is a great place to eat in Columbus, TX.  I highly recommend it!  I ate a hamburger and fries and they were yummy, and Jeff grilled me a burger that evening for supper.  It was also yummy, and I had chips with it.  Then Sunday, my Moochies and I went to Dairy Queen for Easter, and I had a hot dog and fries.  I love DQ hot dogs and fries!

 As far as exercise goes… I worked out with Becky on Monday, Stretching Class with Devera on Tuesday and Thursday, Total Body Workout with Devera on Wednesday, and afterwards Susana made me go walk on an elliptical for 15 minutes.  Man, she’s so pushy!  She’s also an inspiration to me. 

 So, like I said, I had a great week… I ate NS and also had hamburgers and a hot dog, I exercised, played with my grandsons, got to see my sons’ and their families, and I even got to see my little brother Big Al.  Big Al works for his granddaughter and her husband, Dusti and Jeremiah, at Golf World off of 105 in Conroe, so Moke and I stopped by to visit with Big Al.  The picture above is Dusti and Jeremiah’s little angel girl Piper.  She helps Grandpa Big Al with the customers, and also tests some of the equipment.

 Oooooh, I almost forgot!  I weighed this morning, and am very happy to announce that I lost two more pounds!  I was so happy to step on the scales, I just knew it was going to be a weight loss!  So, I’ve lost 15 pounds in two months with Nutrisystem and exercise, and a total of 30 pounds overall!  I now weigh 203!

 Thank you guys for reading my posts, and for being so encouraging… I appreciate it for sure!  And I love all of you!  I have one worry though… I’m hoping that Taco Bell doesn’t go out of business, because I haven’t been there for 2 months.  Surely someone out there is picking up my slack.
