I hope that everyone had a fantastic Christmas, I know I did! Now its time to get amped for the New Year and all the fun stuff that goes with it. Most people, myself included, like to think of the New Year as a fresh start. Wipe the slate clean and make some much needed changes. I love starting things with a fresh perspective each year I am eager to make the necessary changes for a better and brighter tomorrow.
This year will be little different for me. You see I all ready started my journey to a healthier me a few months ago with Nutrisystem. Then to make things a bit easier for me to stick with the program and avoid temptations my husband Oscar joined me on my weightloss journey with Nutrisystem in November. We were doing great together until a snow storm hit and our entire schedule when out of control - followed by Thanksgiving and Christmas we just never got back to what we had intact. We were still eating Nutrisystem but not as many meals as often or in conjunction with the all the fruits and veggies. Time was short so both of us were only eating a couple of meals a day by themselves and if we were out and about running errands fast food got the better of us. Both of us will be making the change back to our Nutrisystem lifestyle starting the first week of January. And we are SO looking forward to it!
In December we started receiving Nutrisystem Select's fresh frozen gourmet meals in addition to some of the shelf food. Let me tell you, the frozen food is DE. LIC. OUS! I love it! Everything can be microwaved, or reheated in the oven which makes for some fast, simple good eatin'! One thing that I love about the frozen breakfasts for Oscar is that he can now enjoy pancakes and french toast in the breakfast that I pack for him. Before he was limited to only muffins and bars for breakfast during the week because he didn't have the means or the time to make pancakes at work like I did at home. I love the variety of the mixing the frozen with the shelf food because it really opened up the options for me for lunch and dinner.
Oh and the desserts! Ice cream, fudge bars and ice cream sandwiches - that's what I'M talking about. I like these dessert options SO much better than the shelf. I mean don't get me wrong chocolate bars, candies and cookies are still good to but we are huge ice cream fans in our house and it is hands down our favorite type of dessert.
