Nutrisystem: Day 1

I’ve gained a lot of weight in the last couple years. So much that I am now 50 pounds overweight. In order to take control of my weight and my life, I’ve started Nutrisystem. Today is Day 1 of the program and of my Fast5, the first week jumpstart to lose up to 5 pounds in 7 days.

Today’s menu includes:
– Cinnamon Streusel Muffin
– Energy Shake
– Three Cheese Chicken
– Craving Shake
–┬áChicken Pot Pie

I added a Greek yogurt for breakfast because the muffin was so tiny, and I’m allowed 3 “powerfuels” a day, which includes yogurt. Though I’m unsure if I’m allowed yogurt during the Fast5, so I’ll try to be better about that.

The Energy shake is pretty decent. Better than some protein shakes I’ve had. It does have a tangy aftertaste though.

The Three Cheese Chicken was basically like a Cup of Soup meal. But it wasn’t bad.

I brought a Green Giant pack of frozen vegetables in light sauce for 3 of my 4 veggie servings for the day.

The Craving shake is smoother than the Energy shake. And doesn’t have the aftertaste.

I then did 30 minutes of walk/jog/running on the treadmill at the gym.

The Chicken Pot Pie was pretty tasty.

I also went to the store after the gym today and bought a bunch of healthy stuff. So I then had sugar snap peas, mushrooms, and sliced cucumbers with Greek yogurt veggie dip as my 4th vegetable of the day, and possibly 5th or 6th.

Ending the day at about 1300 calories. Over the program amount, but much less than my normal intake and mostly in healthy stuff. Also I’ve already had about 10 servings of water today.

Hooray!
