Nutrisystem Week 9 Jenna / Week 5 Craig



Jenna's Nutrisystem Journey Week 9

  I can not believe that I have been on Nutrisystem for 9 weeks.  This week is Halloween and I am glad that I have been on the plan for this long now.  If I wasn't on Nutrisystem I know how this week would go.  My kid's would go trick or treating and I would be helping eat all of their candy.  Honestly before I started on this program snacking was a weekness for me.  I would give into temptation so easily, but now that I am on this system you get to eat so much and are never hungry. Between being able to eat healthy snacks between meals, indulging in portioned size desserts and drinking plenty of water, I just don't get hungry like I used to.
 
Being on the plan has really made me see what portions should be.  It's amazing to me to see a Nutrisystem meal size and then going out to eat and seeing what a restaurant serves you.  I would say that before starting this plan I was probably eating 3x's as much as I was supposed to.  No wonder I wasn't losing any weight, if not gaining!  
 
Instead of getting in my kid's trick or treat bucket this week, I am going to challenge myself.  Every time I even think about snatching a piece of chocolate, I am going to do a few situp's, pushup's or lunges instead :-)


Here are my current stat's -- I am stayed EXACTLY the same this week.  I am just happy that I didn't gain!

1st Week - Starting Weight 131.4
2nd Week - 127.8
3rd Week - 125.8
4th Week - 123.8
5th Week 125.2
6th Week 124 
7th Week 122.8 
8th Week 122.1 
9th Week 122.1

TOTAL WEIGHT LOSS = 9.3 LBS
 
I am so excited about my progress and can't wait to share next week's journey with you guys!  Thanks again for following me :-)

Craig's Nutrisystem Journey Week 5

  5 Weeks on the Nutrisystem plan. I have lost even more weight.  Last week I weighed in at 216.5 and today I stepped on the scale and weighed in at 215 pounds.  I lost another pound and a half.  

I have started doing treadmill intervals.  Walking 2 minutes, jogging 1 minute.  It feels great working out again.  It's not as hard as I thought it would be.  You just have to make time for yourself.  We have two kids and it's hard getting off work, playing with the kids and finding the time to get on the treadmill, but it's not impossible.  I usually do it once Jenna and I get the boys' in bed.  I put my earbuds in, turn up the music and get my sweat session on.  

Here are my current results...



Starting Weight - 226

1st Week - 220
2nd Week -220 
3rd Week - 218
4th Week - 216.5
5th Week - 215
 
TOTAL WEIGHT LOSS = 11 LBS
 
I have lost a total of 11 pounds and it feels great.

CHRIS MANN
ROADS

ALBUM AVAILABLE IN STORES AND ONLINE OCT. 30 2012


If you are a fan of The Voice then you are probably familiar with the singer/songwriter, Chris Mann.  Chris competed his way to the Finals last spring on Team Christina.  The Voice is one of my favorite shows and Chris was definitely one of my faves!  He has a beautiful voice and so much talent, not to mention that he's pretty good looking too :-)  




His music is considered Classical/Pop and it's very inspiring. I was able to preview the song's on his new album and have fallen in love with most of the tracks. I am SO excited to tell you that his new album "Roads" is being released tomorrow, October 30th and I can not wait to get the CD!

Watch this video below to hear a bit of his music and to hear Chris talk about the Roads photo shoot...




 I hope you will take the time to check out the new Roads album, I think you will really enjoy it!  Roads boasts a wildly eclectic assortment of songs, ranging from Willie Nelson’s “Always on My Mind” and Lady Antebellum’s “Need You Now” to “Ave Maria” and Damien Rice’s “The Blowers’ Daughter,” with the latter featuring a special guest appearance from Christina Aguilera. Mann co-wrote two songs, “Cuore,” based on Bach’s “Air on a G String,” and the contemporary ballad “Falling.”


You can listen to "The Blowers' Daughter" in it's entirety on PerezHilton.com HERE

- REVIEW -


Beauty Stop Online allowed me to pick an item out for review.  After browsing their site and their huge selection of products I chose the Andis Pink Pro Duette Pivot Motor Clipper / Trimmer Combo item #23880.  




This item retails for $67.99 and they offer it at the low price of $46.99 with a savings of $21!!  As a former hairstylist I still cut all of my boys' hair!  This includes my husband, my two son's, my dad and a few other family members.  I thought the pink would be great to have. It's Breast Cancer Awareness Month and I am loving everything pink right now. For each Pink Pro Duette purchased, Andis donates a portion to a national breast cancer charity.




I am loving the clippers and trimmers.  They both have 4x's the power of comparable magnetic motor trimmers and clippers.  They feature powerful pivot motors for professional clipping, trimming and outlining. The clipper's have a high quality, stainless-steel blade and adjust to several different sizes at the touch of a lever.  It comes with many blade attachments so that whatever length you are going for, you can achieve with this set.




The trimmer is equipped with a new and improved close-cutting, stainless-steel T-Blade and is ideal for fast touch-ups, hair designing and trimming necks, beards, mustaches and around ears. They both feature a professional, heavy-duty 8 foot cord with hanger loops.

The boys all needed haircuts so I put these to good use right away.  I'm not sure why I only had a picture of me starting Jace's hair and Craig's all finished, but you can still see on Craig's that they worked great.  Probably because I was busy trying to be hair stylist and photographer all at the same time!







My overall experience with Beauty Stop Online was great.  The product arrived quickly and I couldn't be more pleased with my review selection.  Beauty Stop Online offers so many name brand products like: Andis, BaByliss PRO, CHI, Rusk, Spornette, Tweezerman and so many more, this is just a few of the great brands they carry and again they offer 50% - 75% off retail prices!

Wow 8 weeks already and still going strong.  This week I lost a little bit more weight.  My clothes are fitting so much better and I have the eating down.  Honestly, if you guys are thinking about starting a plan, you should definitely check out Nutrisystem. 
They just make it so easy for you.  You have your meals planned out, they give you all of the tools you need to stay on track and it's just pretty thinkless once you get used to everything.  

I'm going to be honest and tell you that I have have given into temptation a few times.  I think with any diet plan you will have that.  You have to let yourself indulge once in awhile or it will never work.  If I do indulge in something that I shouldn't have, I then push myself harder to workout harder the next day and to drink lots and lots of water!

Here are my current stat's -- I am excited to say that I lost a little more.  It wasn't a full pound, but I was still excited to step on that scale and lose a little bit more!

1st Week - Starting Weight 131.4

3rd Week - 125.8
4th Week - 123.8
5th Week 125.2

I was able to place another order of food and have ordered several of my favorite item's like the burgers, chicken breasts and macaroni with beef.  There are several item's that I really don't care for, but that is the nice thing about this system.  You get to customize the diet to your own taste and order the food that you like.

Power up this year's hottest toys with Duracell batteries with Duralock Power Preserve Technology Give-a-way ends 11/03/2012...


 










Duracell recently revealed it's biggest battery news since the creation of iconic CopperTop with their new Duracell Battery with Duralock Power Preserve Technology.




Duracell batteries with Duralock Power Preserve Technology are packaged with a "good until" date and will be recognizable by the new Duralock ring, providing you with instant recognition and the comfort knowing that Duracell batteries left sitting in a drawer will still work when they are needed most. 

Most batteries slowly lose power over time, even when not in use.  Chemical reactions in storage waste active ingredients, decreasing available power.  The new Duralock technology contains a preservation system that helps lock in power for 10 Years GUARANTEED!  


The Technology Preservation System works in 3 ways...

  • At the core is zinc, as pure as 24 karat gold, that provides the best fuel for creating the chemical power.
  • The anode and cathode are protected with a unique separator that limits power transfer when not in use .
  • Finally, triple corrosion protection surrounds the contents in an acid resistant, anti-corrosive exterior. 

   As the holiday are quickly approaching and you are eagerly waiting to learn about this year's hottest holiday toys, the one thing that sometimes gets overlooked is the power to fuel them for hours of fun.  

Being a holiday hero not only means tapping into the coolest toy trends, but providing power the moment the gift is opened and long after the gifts are unwrapped.  Keep holiday spirits up by providing the batteries to properly power new toys.  Whether you are spending the holidays at home with family or on the road, make sure kids' gadgets are powered up for all occasions, now and into the new year.

So go ahead and stock up on those batteries, you can never have enough and you can be rest assured that they will last and be ready when you need them with the Duracell with Duralock Power Preserve Technology system.

Duralock is available in the following Duracell products:

  • Ultra AA
  • Ultra AAA
  • CopperTop AA
  • CopperTop AAA
  • CopperTop C
  • CopperTop D
  • CopperTop 9V
  • Lithium Coin
  • Rechargeable AA
  • Rechargeable AAA
  • Alkaline Coin Button
  • Alkaline Hearing Aid

It's been 11 weeks and I am down .2 lbs, a little disappointed that I haven't lost more the last couple of weeks, but I am also grateful that I haven't gained either.  I would have never imagined that I could lose almost 10 lbs on the plan.

First Alert - Photoelectric Sensor Smoke Alarm Review and Give-a-way ends 10/30/2012...



Last week was Fire Prevention Week -- October 7th-13th.  I think it's so important to talk about this with my children.  They are only 4 and 7, but it's never too early to start educating them about fire safety. 

 

This year's theme is "Have 2 Ways Out" -- Having 2 ways out of each room in your home is so important.  If there is ever a fire in your house and the first way is blocked, you can use your second way out.

You can educate them by asking them simple questions like "If you are in your bedroom and the door is hot to the touch or the fire is coming from the hallway and you can not use the door, how do you get out?"  My kids answered the window.  We went through this with each room in our home and they were actually pretty smart when it came to this.  Even my 4 year old answered correctly.  It may seem silly to us adults, but to a child that's a big question and something as easy as talking about it for 5 minutes may save their life someday!

I also asked them several other questions and my oldest knew most of the answers, but my 4 year old got a few wrong.  When we were in his room I said "If there was smoke in here would you climb to the top of your bunk bed or would you get low to the ground"  He said that he would "climb to the top".  Most little kids probably would think that.  It took only a few minutes to have this conversation and educate him about it and hopefully he knows now!  

Other important things that you and your family should know...

1. Have an evacuation plan in place and actually practice it.  Fire can spread rapidly through your home, leaving you as little as two minutes to escape safely once the alarm sounds. Your ability to get out depends on advance warning from smoke alarms, and advance planning — a home fire escape plan that everyone in your family is familiar with and has practiced.

2. Check and change smoke alarm batteries!  Smoke alarms that are properly installed and maintained play a vital role in reducing fire deaths and injuries. Having a working smoke alarm cuts the chances of dying in a reported fire in half. Make sure you enough in your home and check to make sure they are working!

3. Educate your children about Carbon Monoxide --The "Silent Killer" and install carbon monoxide alarms.   

Although the popularity of carbon monoxide (CO) alarms has been growing in recent years, it cannot be assumed that everyone is familiar with the hazards of carbon monoxide poisoning in the home. 

Often called the silent killer, carbon monoxide is an invisible, odorless, colorless gas created when fuels (such as gasoline, wood, coal, natural gas, propane, oil, and methane) burn incompletely. In the home, heating and cooking equipment that burn fuel are potential sources of carbon monoxide. Vehicles or generators running in an attached garage can also produce dangerous levels of carbon monoxide.  Have a CO alarm and make sure your family knows what to do if it goes off!


Educating your family only takes minutes.  I am so glad that we talked about all of this with our children.   As the old saying goes - "It's better to be safe than sorry"...  Isn't that the truth I would rather take 5 minutes to educate my family and be safe, than not educate them and have something happen and be sorry when it's too late!!

You can learn more information about Fire Prevention Week by visiting:


First Alert recently sent us the Photoelectric Smoke Alarm with Silence.  



This Battery Operated Photoelectric Smoke Alarm detects slow burning fires, which cause a greater risk of smoke inhalation and reduce nuisance alarms from cooking smoke and shower steam. The mute button silences unwanted alarms and tests alarm functions. Easy access to detector batteries means there is no need to remove the alarm from the ceiling to change the battery. 

(It comes with a10-year limited warranty and meets UL standards.)

Please take the time to check your home to make sure you have smoke alarms. Check your batteries at least once a year. We usually check and change batteries when the time changes in the spring and fall.

Nutrisystem Week 7 Jenna / Week 3 Craig




Jenna's Nutrisystem Journey Week 7  

I have been working out so hard and am so excited to tell you that I have lost another pound!  I know that doesn't sound like much, but for me to lose another pound and be closer to my goal weight it really is an accomplishment for me!  Since Craig is also on the program it makes it 100% easier to stick with it since we are both doing it.  Before he started on it, I still had to make him dinner and he ate whatever he wanted, whenever he wanted and it just tempts you to eat unhealthy foods.  Losing weight is a challenge as I have always said, but having a partner who wants the same things as you and can encourage along the way is the best thing. 

Nutrisystem is like a partner too.  When you join Nutrisystem you get a world of support.  When you log onto their website you are able to connect with a counselor if you need to, you can use their Fitness Forums, check out their Recipe Center and so much more.  You will not be alone on your journey.  If there is anything you need to know or any support you need along the way, they are right there with you. 


1st Week - Starting Weight 131.4
2nd Week - 127.8
3rd Week - 125.8
4th Week - 123.8
5th Week 125.2
6th Week 124 
7th Week 122.8

TOTAL WEIGHT LOSS = 8.6 LBS

I am so excited about my progress and can't wait to share next week's journey with you guys!  Thanks again for following me :-)

Craig's Nutrisystem Journey Week 8

Well it's been 3 weeks guys.  I am getting accustomed to my new diet.  It's been a hard few weeks but it is definitely getting easier for me.  There are some foods that I just haven't liked and so I have traded with Jenna.  She is not picky like I am and I am glad she is willing to let me trade her some items.  I am a meat guy so when I get ready to place my next order I will be getting more of the grilled chicken and burgers. 

After not losing anything last week I have decided to start walking on the treadmill.  I know that eating right and exercising goes two in two so it's my next goal. I have been walking for a few miles a couple of days a week and I think it has really helped....


Starting Weight - 226

1st Week - 220
2nd Week -220 
3rd Week - 218

TOTAL WEIGHT LOSS = 8 LBS


I lost 2 pounds this week and feel great about that.  I will be back next week to give you another update.

The cocoa and shea butters provide extensive conditioning, protecting your skin from dryness. Use it regularly to treat problem areas and persistent trouble spots like knees and elbows.
 
I really like this products.  It's a very thick balm that is great to rub on dry spots.  A little goes a long way and I love the smell.  If you battle with dry patches or rough skin this product is for you.  I see myself using it a lot this winter!
The next product is the Champneys Spa Indulgence Exotic Retreat Body Glow ($11.99) -- This body glow from the Champneys Exotic Retreat range will revitalize skin, leaving it glowing and pampered. With tropical brown sugar and pure white Bora Bora sand that gently exfoliates, rich mango butter to soften and coconut oil to moisturize, your skin will be left soft and nourished. 7 oz.

I love, love, love this scrub.  Not only does it smell absolutely amazing, but it makes my skin feel so good.  I use a scrub at least once a week to slough off dead skin and this one is definitely a new fave!




The last product sent over is the Champneys Spa Indulgence Mediterranean Bliss Shimmering Body Oil ($10.99) -- Bring the spa home with you with the Champneys Mediterranean Bliss shimmering body oil. Its exotic olive leaf and coconut scent will make you feel like you are at the spa. This luxurious body oil contains moisturizing almond oil to indulge your skin and leave it silky soft.

This body oil is so moisturizing.  It smells amazing and makes your skin look and feel so good.  I love putting it on my legs, it makes them looking awesome!

I love all of the products that I was able to try from the Champneys Spa Collection. They offer so many other products and I will definitely be checking them all out the next time I visit Target!
