NutriSystem, Week 8

Oh, what a week it was with NutriSystem! As you may recall, last week I hit a weight loss plateau. My solution was to break from routine, mix it up and let me body know that I was still paying attention. And, what a perfect week of ‘change’ it was, since I flew to Toronto for a couple of days, to film the new Dove Singing In The Rain commercial. So, like it or not – my happy little routine was going to get shaken up.

I left for the airport prepared with some NutriSystem breakfast bars. I knew that I would be slacking on the food department, due to the circumstances. Yet I thought I could at least try and get a NutriSystem breakfast in there {good intentions, right?}. Yet, those I took, also can home with me {#Fail}. Here are the high’s and low’s of this past week….


  • Due to nerves and stubbornness, I ordered coke to drink, on the plane
    {I had kicked the pop for months until then *sigh*}
  • I didn’t go to the gym for 5 of the 7 days
  • I indulged in the wicked catering provided at the film studios – a lot
  • Upon celebration of a most awesome day, a couple of us hit a pub for caesars and loaded nachos {yet we barely made a dent in the plate}
  • Nervousness caused me to not sleep for a solid 3 days
  • the same excuse caused me to take a liking to {regular} lattes

ok, ok – so as you can tell, I was a bad girl for most of last week. But, these #Fails do come with some plus-sides:


  • I wore a miniskirt again, in front of cameras and an audience
  • I danced my butt off during rehearsals and filming
  • Eating so much caused stomach pains for days, proof of what that can do to a person. Though it was the hard way, I did learn
  • The day after I got back, I hit the gym again
  • I also slid {very easily} back into the NutriSystem meal plan
  • Going back to the NutriSystem plan took the tummy pains away
  • And after all that unhealthy food, it tasted sooo good
  • I lost weight this week – take THAT plateau!

Week 8 results: -2 lbs
Total weight loss to date: -19 lbs

  1. awesome to read, so far with doing the NS I have lost 7.8 lbs, and 8 inches. Can’t work out till my ankle heals, so one more week of “taking it easy” can’t wait to see what my weight loss will be when I add working out to the eating right

    1. Rest that ankle! Setbacks are hard, just keep thinking of your mini-goals!
      Way to go on the 7.8 lb loss!! *Yaaa*!

  2. wow, crazy week for you. But such a huge plus to loose 2lbs. CONGRATS!! I had a slice of “real” pizza yesterday and all night I was paying for it, too much grease. Glad to know my body knows what is healthy in it or not now.

    curious about how you got to do the Dove commercial, sounds amazing.

    1. Hi Erica,
      I was invited, that’s all I know. lol
      And thanks for the support, I was surprised to see the loss, to be honest. But happy, don’t get me wrong.
      I know how greasy food after a long absence feels, sad to think my body was immune to that kind of food before….blah!

  3. Wow, what a week for you! Congrats on the weight loss! I finished up my 4th week yesterday and have lost 7.6lb! so far! Can’t wait to keep reading your updates:)


    I weigh in on Tuesday, so I’ll see how things go for me.. and those Nachos and ceasars were yummy!
