Onward and downward (again). With lack of exercise yesterday I'm surprised I'm down at all. My weight loss has slowed to a pound a week at best. Because I always track my weight I looked back at 2015 as I gradually gained weight. It was at a rate of about 2-3lbs a month. I find that interesting.
I have to scoot out in the rain to walk to my work out. It was my first umbrella day. It's a two minute walk so it's not exactly a hardship. Breakfast was a Nutrisystem Honey Wheat Bagel and 3/4 ounce of cream cheese. I don't think the cream cheese is an approved power fuel but it just goes well on a bagel. I didn't take the time to add anything else.
My workout went OK but I really watched my back today. I don't need a repeat of yesterday. Once it dries out this afternoon I'll get a walk in. Meanwhile with no alternative I blended yet another Nutrisystem Chocolate Nutricrush Shake. Brrrrr!
I'm trying something new today! The Nutrisystem Tortilla Soup. This is a shelf-stable dehydrated product. I mentally set my expectations low so I would not be disappointed. That said I really liked this soup! I think I had to go through a lot more falderal to make it than what should be necessary. The process is you half tear open the top blue paper cover. Tear open the flavoring packet. Add the packet to the cup, mix. Add water to the line on the cup, mix. Microwave it until it boils then remove it and cover the package with foil or a plate (I used a plate) and wait another 6-8 minutes for the dehydrated bits to soften. I ended up stirring again after than and microwaving it again to warm it more. This should be something you open a container, toss it in a bowl, heat, serve. In any event I still liked it.
Here are the Nutrisystem Tortilla Soup components. One cup with dehydrated rice, black beans and tiny tortilla chip bits. The tortilla chip bits virtually disappear once the soup is reconstituted.
This is the ingredients with the flavor packet added it. Now you add water, stir and heat.
My snack was not so much a snack as a continuation of lunch. I was still hungry so I added 3/4 ounce of Toscano salami. This was both part of lunch and all of my snack.
I was pretty hungry come dinner time. I walked before lunch and did not go as far as I typically do. I was busy most of the day so perhaps by the time I'm done making dinner, cleaning up etc. I'll get those steps in. Dinner tonight was the Nutrisystem Pasta Parmesan, again. The flavor of this is OK but it's about 38 carbs. I still don't care for how many carbs this program provides. I picked another eggplant out of the garden (almost to the end of those) and baked it to go alongside.
Most of the Nutrisystem snacks are loaded with carbs. Tonight I actually had the Kirkland Signature Nut Bar. I'd like you to read about these. They taste better, then have fewer carbs and they cost 1/3 the price of the Nutrisystem Dark Chocolate and Sea Salt Bars. Read my post about these two "healthy" snack bars.
Although the Kirkland bar appears larger it's the same gram weight (40g) as the Nutrisystem bar.
With my work out, one main walk and all my chores today I eked out my 11k steps. I felt I ate less than normal not that I ever eat that much these days. I need to do something different to step up my weight loss but at least I'm still going downward. Let's see what the weekend brings. Meanwhile, happy eating! See you tomorrow.
