Nutrisystem Week 12 Report; A Need for balance in life #NSNation #Spon

Welcome to another weekly report of my experiences on the Nutrisystem program. After last week's bout with illness I was hoping nothing could be worse and that things would easily turn a corner for better. And then I was introduced to life. Nothing ever seems to go as planned. I learned quickly that i need to establish balance to success with Nutrisytem

A need for balance to succeed on Nutrisystem


After a week of being sick, the kid's school work, household cleaning, laundry, work assignments, and meal cooking had fallen far behind schedule. And to add injury to insult my cold turned into sinus infection symptoms. So still under the weather, I was rushing to get caught up, over taxing myself and adding even more stress by preparing for company coming into town over the weekend; all while I was still trying to catch up from the last two weeks of being sick. Does this sound familiar to you? 

The result; I let my life get far out of balance. I was not getting enough sleep. I was not allowing enough time for meal. I was stressed. What happened next? By Wednesday; I said "I don't care" and I gave up. I ate whatever was around, I didn't put enough effort into my health. I was letting my life run wild like a chicken with it's head cut off. And I couldn't get my self to care because I was so busy focusing on getting caught up. I let the important things slack and gave more importance to the unimportant things. 

It wasn't until Monday that I even noticed what was happening and realized that I had let my life get unbalanced. When things are unbalanced you lose focus of what's important and you don't allow yourself time to take care of yourself. I have since cut back on the unimportant things, and began to re-balance my daily life. I've removed a few stresses and I'm hoping for a much better week report next week. 

A look into the life of one living the Nutrisystem Program.

Thankfully the set back is not as bad as I was expecting honestly. And now with my head on straight, my symptoms finally starting to clear up (although still lingering) and a fresh supply of Nutrisystem food stocked in my pantry and freezer; I'm ready to clear the slate and get going again.  

Nutrisystem isn't about focusing on the set backs, but about moving forward and that's what I'm doing. Moving forward trying to make each day better than the day before.
