My Nutrisystem Journey – Week Two #NSNation #ad

I have received the Nutrisystem program free of charge in exchange for writing about the program and my progress. All opinions expressed are my own.

Phew! This past week has been so much better! Now that I am no longer following the Fast Five part of the program I am so much happier since I am no longer hungry. I am now able to add other foods other than vegetables to the plan so instead of just eating a (small) muffin for breakfast I can also have a fat-free or low-fat yogurt. I can have three Powerfuels and a Smartcarb per day in addition to better tasting meals and a dessert. 

The frozen meals that I’ve had so far have been quite good and the non-refrigerated boxed meals have been decent. So far there have only been two meals that I don’t really want to eat again; the meatloaf and the chicken alfredo. They’re edible but not enjoyable for me. 

My lunch today was a red beans and rice Nutrisystem entrĂ©e and a slice of a nice multigrain bread that I bought at the grocery store.

I have to say, grabbing a meal and popping it in the microwave has been a nice break from cooking every night. Luckily my husband is perfectly capable in the kitchen and has been doing the cooking for himself and the kids.

My weight loss this week was 3 pounds for a total of 6 pounds.

Save Money and Energy with a Honeywell WiFi Smart Thermostat {Review & Giveaway}

I received a complimentary product in exchange for my honest review.

For quite a few years now we have had programmable thermostats. They are one of the best ways to control your heating costs and energy consumption by putting your furnace on a timer. But now it’s gotten even better! Now not only can you program your thermostat, you can program it from work, the car, or while you’re away on vacation!

I am excited to introduce you to the Honeywell Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat

Essential Oils for Beginners

I received a complimentary product in exchange for my honest review.

I have heard a lot about essential oils over the past few years but didn’t really know what they were used for other than scenting wool dryer balls or disinfecting with tea tree oil. Other than that, it was all a mystery to me. I won’t lie, it sounded like a bunch of hippie hocus pocus and I didn’t look into it any further until a couple of months ago when I became desperate for relief from depression

Soon after that I was asked to review the doTerra Introductory Kit from Whole Wellness Coach and was really excited to give the oils a try. In the kit were three oils: peppermint, lavender, and lemon. Most things that I have read said that these are the essential essential oils and I was glad to now have them in my (teeny tiny) collection.

Sign the Petition to Become a Toxin Freedom Fighter! #FightToxins #MC

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Millennial Central for Seventh Generation. I received a promotional item and product samples as a thank you for participating

Seventh Generation Toxin Freedom Fighters #FightToxins

Many people seem to think that the products we buy off the supermarket shelves to use in our homes are safe and have been tested, but that’s not necessarily the case. I think it’s safe to say that the vast majority of us would prefer to clean our homes safely and without harmful chemicals, but how do we know what is harmful and what isn’t?

Making My Healthy Home Healthier with #WalgreensOlogy #shop

We are pretty green in my house. We conserve as much energy as we can, use cloth diapers, reduce waste, and I try to reduce the amount of chemicals that we use in our home and on our bodies. I feel that not only is it healthier, it is our social responsibility. Earth’s resources are finite and I feel very strongly that we need to start being more conscious of what we consume in order to leave a better planet for our children and grandchildren.
