Nutrisystem Week 8 UPDATE - Measurements + Zombie Zumba

I am receiving three consecutive 28-day programs in return for my honest review. All opinions are 100% that of my own and I look forward to sharing my Nutrisystem experience with you guys ! #NSnation #SparkleMeFit

Catch up on my previous Nutrisystem weekly updates and vlogs over here. 
Week 8 woop woop 

I can not believe I have been doing a dietary program for two months straight! 

I have to say, results aside, I am proud of myself for sticking with this as much as I have. 

A lot can change in just 8 weeks ! 

This week I went to Zumba class on Friday even though I was feeling super crappy. As I've mentioned previously my allergies are terrible right now. The insides and behind area ? Of my ears hurts and throbs nonstop all day. I have dealt with this since I was a little girl. Apparently my eustachian tube and sinus drainage-ness areas are ultra small are easily annoyed. Other than surgery there is really nothing they can do for me so feeling miserable, in pain and stuffed up it is. Anyways, Friday morning I was getting ready to take my son to school and could barely keep my eyes open I felt like a zombie. I was texting with a friend of mine who had said she had gotten up at 5 am to get a power walk in before the kiddos woke up. It was in that moment I felt ultra lame and quickly changed into my gym clothes. Now I was struggling to stay awake in the beginning but I left that class covered in sweat and feeling so much brighter and peppier !! Plus it got my heart pumping, opened up my lungs and burned calories. I am so glad I didn't just go back home after taking my son to school and sit on the couch like a potato even though I wasn't feeling well and was tired. That one hour totally changed my attitude for the rest of the day for the better. 

This week I ate some yummy yummies. I had this for lunch 

I marinaded and grilled the chicken but the Fettuccine Alfredo is all Nutrisystem !

It is meals like this that make me never want to stop this program !!
Then this Chef's Table Steak Tagliata dinner tastes like a restaurant meal !! 
My favorite is still the new menu item chicken bacon ranch pizza though ugh this is amazing ! I would deff purchase a case of these if it were possible. 

Now on to the results !!

Nutrisystem is NOT sponsoring me during this process, meaning I an NOT being paid to do any of my blog posts or videos. They have provided the foods as part of the program but that is it !  All opinions as always are that of my own.


  1. I think you are doing great... those measurements are going down... remember, your measurements will go down before your weight, at least for me :) You go girl

  2. Will you be updating soon? Im just curious as to how the last month went. I have just started Nutrisystem and it can be rough but overall it has been a good experience.

    1. Hey Des I actually just filmed the final week 12 / 3 month final update today. We are moving furniture into our new house this week so I'm hoping to finalize the post once we get the internet all set up. I'm so happy to have you along on this journey and hope all is well with you :-)
