Nutrisystem Week 1

It has been one week since we have started Nutrisystem and the results have been pretty promising, however that does not mean that this week was easy going and care free. It was hard for me to adjust.

When it comes to eating, I’m doing ok. I have a hard time not eating when I’m at work when people bring food in for everyone. Plus every Friday, my boss brings in doughnuts! So the first week food wise was hard for me. The one thing I am proud of is the way I’ve been balancing when I go off the system. I feel bad for eating things like a doughnut, but I balanced it by going running when I got home. So I’m happy that I’m doing this early on.

When it comes to exercising, it’s hard for me. When I’m all done with work, I’m exhausted. In my job, I have to be happy while talking for 2 hours each tour, which I do two of. I also walk a good chunk of the tour. When I get home, I’m emotionally and physically exhausted. But I have started running again, which I’m excited to report. I downloaded an app on my phone to help me with my running. It’s called Couch to 5k, it helps you run 30 minutes for 3 days a week. It’s a mix of jogging and walking. I’ve done it before and really enjoyed it so I’m happy that I’m starting it again.

So far for me I have lost 4 pounds. Which I have to admit, when I saw that, I was pretty excited. I’m very proud of myself.

For Myke, he has lost 11 pounds (dumb guys who lose weight like crazy! Plus he rides he bike every single day).

Week 1 was hard, but I’m still going!
