Alright Jenny!!!

So today was my weigh in day for Jenny Craig. I lost 3.8 pounds!!! So far I hate to say it, Jenny Craig blows Nutrisystem out of the water! There is absolutely no comparison in terms of taste, appearance, packaging etc. Except for the fact that I am sooooooo happy we have a deep freezer. Unlike the high sodium uber processed food that is nutrisystem Jenny Craig is made up of mostly perishables with a few shelf stable foods. And their shelf stable foods are things that wold be shelf stable even not on a diet such as cereals, chips, trail mix, cookies etc. I have never been so happy to be helling out my money to a weight loss program. As we say in my circle of friends Jenny Craig is tha bizness. Ok so enough about that. The one negative is that If you don't have an ice chest or cooler handy that you can carry around with you (my job does not have a fridge) you are out of luck. That, however, is the only thing bad with this plan so far. I haven't bothered tracking what I eat everyday with this plan because I haven't really eaten anything that I would score less than a 4 out of 5. That is also to say though, that I WILL NOT consume any Jenny Craig Food that contains mushrooms. I HATE HATE HATE mushrooms. Anyway yall it is time for bed until next time.

Luv, Hugs, and Smooches!!!

Hello Beautiful People...The kid is back

So today is Saturday and yes it has been like a whole month since my last post, but this is the journey I suppose. Trying to find time for me has been difficult and I am not even a mother yet! I feel like in doing all of the things I am "supposed" to do not only as a person, wife, ahem...military wife (please believe after they hit a certain rank you two become the package) are stressing me out. What stress equates to for me is salty and sour snacking. I have been trying to do the right thing and not eat emotionally. I find that when I don't, emotionally eat that is, when I do get around to making comfort foods I go WAAAAAYYYY over board. Am I the only on with that problem? I don't think so. So this is what I have done. We have a lot of food in our house that would be considered "junk" that I can't live without so to speak. We also have like a million sandwich baggies. So now as soon as I buy the product I split it into serving sizes and put them away. I am not allowing myself to eat in the kitchen, too much easy access to that which tempts me. So when I crave my treat I grab a baggy, indulge and have to wait 30 minutes before I get up and go back in the kitchen to throw the trash away. I find that if I do this, the craving is satisfied and I am less likely to overeat. So I guess that's is my tip for the day.

Anyway yall...Just wanted to check in with you. My weigh ins are going to be on Friday's now and that may be my only day to post and it may not, but I contractually obligated myself to post at least once a week and If I don't I have to do 100 squats (I hate them) a day the next week as a reminder to post. So either there will be a post or I will have thighs and glutes of steel. I just find that I do so much better on this journey when I blog.

Smooches and thank you for your support.
