I was provided a free Jenny Craig Weight Loss Starter Kit. However, the opinions expressed are entirely my own. #JennyCraigKitPulling up those jeans . . . ugh! Too tight. Looking in the mirror and not loving that little waddle under my chin. Going shopping and refusing to buy a size bigger. Is this also you? This is me and it seems to be a constant struggle between losing some weight and really loving cookies. Sigh.
Good thing trying a new weight loss plan is easier than ever. Walmart now sells the Jenny Craig Weight Loss Starter Kit to help kickstart your weight loss plan with five days of meals, which is perfect for busy parents who want to get their shopping done in one place. I love being able to run into Walmart for shampoo, apples, milk, kitty litter, and why not pick up a Jenny Craig Kit while I’m there? Let’s see what is included in the kit.
The Jenny Craig Weight Loss Starter Kit includes five breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and snacks. For breakfast they include cereal, oatmeal, and bars which are perfect for a quick bite while dropping off the kids at school or running errands. For lunch there is soup, tortellini, and a chicken salad kit. Dinner includes easy microwave meals like Swedish meatballs and ravioli, and the snacks are yummy cookies, cheese curls, and bars.
I love the ease of grabbing a bar and a piece of fruit for breakfast. I’m not a morning person and I like simple in the morning. This. This was so good! It tasted like amaretto and I could eat a Cranberry Almond Barscotti for breakfast every day.
This kit is a great way to give Jenny Craig a try while kickstarting a weight loss routine. In addition to the twenty meals, the kit includes one month free consultation at any Jenny Craig center or Jenny Craig Anywhere and $50 food savings when you join a Jenny Craig center.
The meals are portioned for weight loss, but we all know that getting up and moving is also an important step, especially as we get older. Sometimes it’s hard to get the proper amount of exercise in when you’re juggling home, work, and family, but there are plenty of ways to get exercise in along with the kids if you’re unable to get away on your own. Also, it’s great to get the kids in the habit of exercising so it’s a win-win!
17 exercise ideas to do with the kids
- Take a walk around the neighborhood.
- Go for a bike ride.
- Play at the playground with the kids.
- Play some rounds of mini golf.
- Take a nature walk. Also make it educational by identifying flowers, trees, or animal tracks.
- Have a dance party in the living room.
- Shoot hoops.
- Jump rope.
- Do jumping jacks.
- Take the dog for a walk.
- Find a fun place to go for a hike.
- Go swimming.
- If it’s close enough, take a walk to the library instead of driving.
- Walk the track at your local school while the kids play in the center grass.
- Play a racquet sport (tennis, badminton, even ping pong)
- Just Dance video game.
- Create a backyard obstacle course.
I am the queen of excuses and procrastination. Really. But I have just proved to myself that weight loss doesn’t have to be hard and the kids aren’t an excuse to stay home and not get the exercise that I need. It doesn’t have to be a lot; just 30 minutes a day if that’s all there’s time for. Anything is better than sitting on the couch.
How do you feel about Jenny Craig now being available exclusively at Walmart? Do you think having it in a local store makes it more convenient?
