Nutrisystem Posts

Listed below are each of my Nutrisystem posts,
follow me through my journey


Nutrisystem Blogger

Want to lose weight and get healthy on Nutrisystem? I know I certainly do and will. I was accepted into the Nutrisystem bloggers program and am very excited for this fantastic opportunity!

A little bit about me:
I'm 5'4 and have a 2 year old daughter. Most of my weight came during and after my pregnancy. I gained 57 lbs during pregnancy and lost 45 after (due to a thyroid glitch) and then gained 33lbs back due to another thyroid glitch. Recently a specialist said my thyroid was back to a normal level, so at 210 lbs I'm ready to lose weight and keep it off. With losing the weight I plan to with Nutrisystem, I expect I'll be happier, since I won't be so embarrassed by my appearance and be able to be more actively involved with my daughter.

I don't want to look like this anymore

Ok, so I'm not that big, but sometimes it feels that way

How to make an Ornament

How to make an Ornament
That will save you money and make a perfect gift
and cherished memory
  • 1/2 c of salt
  • 1/2c of Flour
  • 1/4 water (give or take)
  • Mix all ingredients together. If you need to add more water, do so slowly, in the end I added a smidge too much and it became a little too sticky
  • Knead until dough forms

*I doubled up on the ingrediants to make this much dough*
  • Then there are a few ways you can go with this:
    • One being use cookie cutters to cut out the shapes you desire, I used ones I bought on clearance at Walmart last year after Christmas
    • Two being you can press a child's hand (or foot) into the dough, then cut out the hand shape with a knife leaving a border around it

  • The next step is to cut a hole at what will be the top of the ornament (you can use a knife or press a straw into it to create the hole)

  • Bake at 300F for 2 hrs
  • Paint when cooled (you can seal it with clear gloss spray paint if you'd like)
  • Loop a ribbon through the hole you created
  • And hang or gift :)

Scünci Ponytailer Bracelet Review

When I was asked to do this review, I of course said yes. I rock a pony tail for at least 65% of the day; I can only stand my hair down for so long. The main reason I accepted this review was because not only was it a hair tie, it was a hair tie I can wear on my wrist and not feel weird about it during a formal function, if I'm wearing nice clothes, or having pictures taken.

First of all do you KNOW how many pictures I've ruined because I've worn a hair (or two) on my wrist and forgot to take them off? A few...And I don't mean family pictures, I mean professional portraits. My Senior pictures were GREAT, I mean really good, except for one thing, I think I had 2 or 3 hair ties on my wrist and of course I was doing the hands under the chin pose, so it was pretty hard not to notice them.

Now that scunci has come out with Ponytailer Bracelet I don't have to worry about that anymore! They come in nine styles, that you can mix and match with outfits. The review company sent me two Ponytailer Bracelets (if you look at the pic below it was the two on the right). The first one I tried out was the last one in the picture below, I wore it to a wedding shower and it was great, it looked like a stylish bracelet and when I became sick of having my hair down, I used it to hold my ponytail. The only issue I had with it was one of the tiny decorative chains running through the loops broke off, but besides that it was fully functional.

Sears Portraits

Pictures for all Seasons

Since my daughter was born, I have REFUSED to pay $200 plus to get her pictures done, but I get them done every year for less then $35 and get over $100 worth of pictures. OMG how do I do that? Easy, I get them done at Sears, but I NEVER get one of their over priced packets.

At the end of the session, when we're looking at the final pictures, I hand them a coupon for a mini packet, which only costs between $7.99 and $12.99 (you're only allowed to choose one picture) and insist that's all I'm getting. They HATE those coupons and become not so nice after that, but stand your ground, they are YOUR pictures. If you like more then one get your FAVORITE, if you don't it costs $20 PER sheet.

When you go to pick up your pictures, they usually send more and they only cost $5 per sheet! I usually take all 5 sheets and combined with the pictures I already ordered have enough to give out to all my family members.

So, if you are on a tight budget this year, get some pictures done for less then $40 and hand them out as presents, grandparents love them and that's a perk of having a child, everyone can expect to get a picture of them until they're 18 and nothing more, lol.
