I started my Nutrisystem progam today, and just like the last time I started the one thought I’ve had for most of the day is, “This is more than I usually eat!” So, granted, I did start eating later in the day than I normally do (11ish), but here’s the rundown so far…
Breakfast – NS cranberry/orange pastry, a slice of cheese & 3 dried apricots. I liked the pastry… kind of like an individual cake. Aftewards I wasn’t hungry, but I wasn’t full. I got hungry pretty soon there after.
Snack – This is supposed to be eated after dinner, but since we were going to a movie I took it with me to nibble on instead of popcorn or candy. It was the NS version of Chex Mix. Not so great. Not sure if I’ll get it again. I have 2 more, so they may grow on me.
Lunch – This is where things start to get a little screwy… Our movie was out about 3:30 and we did some shopping. I ate my NS fudge graham bar in the car. Pretty tasty and surprisingly filling. Then we went out to eat with my in-laws. I got a chicken caesar salad with FF balsamic vinaigrette and gave my bread to the kids. That took care of 1 veggie for lunch and my dairy/protein for lunch and snack.
Snack – 1 organic banana. That took care of my fruit servings for snack & dinner.
Right now it’s almost 8:30 and I still have a lunchtime veggie, 2 dinner veggies, a dinner entree and a fat serving to get through. I’m thinking I may try my NS buffalo chicken wrap with some mayo (for the fat), lettuce and some shredded carrots. If the tortilla is too small for all of that, I’ll add a salad on the side. I really don’t see myself making all of my veggie servings today, but hey, it’s my first day. And considering I’m going from about 2 fruit/veggie servings in a typical day to 7… I think making 6 is pretty good.
