Jason's Weekly Nutrisystem Check In
Well, had a good week, stayed on point, and ALMOST hit my goal. Still a win, not feeling bad about it at all. Now down a total of 20.2 pounds! That’s right boys and girls, over 20 pounds down and feeling great. Half way to my total goal, and seeing some light at the end of the tunnel.
I have to say that one of the weirdest things is that I now look forward to eating breakfast. Sounds silly, but normally the thought of food in the morning is very unappetizing. I now start off with my coffee (I told you I was not cutting that out, would’ve been a deal-breaker), and make my breakfast after the morning drive to work. On a rare occasion I will actually eat breakfast at the house, but that’s the exception since I’m never actually hungry in the mornings. I’ve come a long way though, since I used to not eat sometimes until almost noon, which I know isn’t good for you, but I just never felt the urge to eat earlier. Now by noon I would have had coffee, breakfast, a snack, and lunch. Most days that comes out to about 800 calories give or take. That’s a far cry from the 900 calories I used to take in with an Egg McMuffin, hash browns, and an orange juice from you know where.
I’m setting my goal back at another 4 pounds for the week. While it seems daunting, a goal shouldn’t be easy to achieve, right? Still got a lot of work to do around the house and in the yard, and I’ve got to say, those seem to be the most satisfying “work-outs”. Every weekend I mow, trim, seed, water, blow-off, etc. two different yards. I’m usually exhausted after I get done, but I go at it hard like I’m preparing for the Yard Boy Olympics, and in the end I win Gold!
Well, here’s to another week of taking it day by day, meal by meal, and losing more weight. Trying a few different items this time around like the Mushroom Risotto, but I can’t give up on old standbys. I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of eating Cajun Style Chicken & Sausage with Rice or Chicken with Dumplings. Normally chicken is my fall-back choice, but these items are two of my favorites. The Chocolate Peanut Bar? Forget about it, I could eat that all day! Good eating, and see you next week.
