You might have noticed I didn’t provide a Nutrisystem update last week. There were a couple of things going personally that derailed me. I was battling dental issues that resulted in last Friday’s root canal which was the first punch and not the last.
My aunt, who we thought had successfully battled cancer, was given the news it was terminal. It got worse within a very short time when she had to be admitted to hospice. This hit me hard and I couldn’t battle emotional eating after this second punch.
Taking care of the first issue has given me the internal strength to get back on the healthy living bandwagon. I started yesterday by tracking everything I ate even though it was a day of celebration.
We started the day with a skinny latte like every other Sunday followed by a free slam at Denny’s. For lunch, we joined my husband’s brother and his wife at a steakhouse.
This spinach salad was delicious and you can see I downed my first diet coke in two months! The salad was followed by prime rib with baked potato and flourless chocolate cake for dessert. I enjoyed every bite of this special occasion treat!
This birthday girl was happy and grateful for such a wonderful day and refreshed for life’s challenges. If you have a prayer list, I’d appreciate you adding my aunt.
As my three months of following the Nutrisystem D plan comes to and end next week, I’ll update you with thoughts and weight loss results.
