Take It From Me: Nutrisystem Week #1

March 9, 2012

Nutrisystem Week #1

Week #1 has officially come and gone on the Nutrisystem program and I couldn't have been happier!  Believe it or not, even with being hit with sickness and an injury, overall I think it went really well!
The first day I woke up and decided to start the day with a nice vigorous exercise session.  When I was done, I sank my teeth into a delicious blueberry muffin followed with the best tasting protein shake in my life--the Strawberry Nutrisystem protein drink!  Now I have tried a number of protein drinks from SlimFast to Special K, and more.  They all have this gritty nasty taste and honesty I have never been able to stomach a complete shake.  Not any more!! The Nutrisystem protein drink tasted like a true Strawberry shake--no grit, no bad after taste, nothing...I was stunned!  It just paved the way and paid testiment to all the wonderful tasting Nutrisystem foods that I was able to eat throughout the week!
I have to admit that I was so scared that the food in this program would not taste good.  I wouldn't say that I am a super picky eater, but I like good tasting food!  I want flavor, variety, and goodness--all of which Nutrisystem provided!  From the new Chef's Table options, pantry-ready meals, and fresh frozen items--I was more than satisfied with the food!
The only thing that got in my way this week was a crummy foot injury which stood in the way of my exercising and a horrible cold.  For a few days I could barely walk on my foot, and therefore left missing out on opportunities.  My illness also left me feeling tired, weak, and in no mood to get active.  My whole body was in pain and I was having a hard enough time tending to my 3 kids on my own all week.  Overall, I felt defeated.  It was like I had this fire in me to kick this program off so well and for some reason I was being pushed down.  But isn't that how it is?  Adversities come in many ways--food temptations, injuries, etc.  The important thing is to try and stay positive and get through the hard stuff and back on track!
Soo...even though I only lost 2 pounds, I feel like it's a great way to start.  Plus, I am feeling a lot better--my cold is almost all gone and my foot is feeling so much better that I was able to go to Zumba tonight--YAY!!  I can't wait to see what next week will bring!!
