After a ridiculous experience with the worst stomach flu known to man, which kept me out of normal eating for over two weeks, I have dived back into my Nutrisystem adventure! The adventure is just that, an adventure. But adventure is almost never easy. Its full of bumpy roads, twists and turns and I've had my fair share. I continue to avoid the scale but rely on what my body is telling me. My cravings for foods that once ruled my life are all but gone and for that I'm thankful! I've adjusted well to the complete change - ridding myself of sodas and unnecessary sugars has had a wonderful effect on my body.
Supposedly winter is upon us, but here in the DC area Winter isn't coming. I find myself conflicted. The gorgeous weather is wonderful! The kids are playing outside, skirts are a thing, I pulled out my new floral purse to tote around town. But there's something about the snow, bundling up with my boots and comfy sweaters. Winter is the time for stews, soups and corn bread. How does one stay committed to a new lifestyle of eating during the time? Thank goodness for Nutrisystem's Leaf!
