Nutrisystem 10-Day Challenge #NSNation - Breakfast


I lead a sedentary life at work, my job doesn't require me to move a lot, just plug away at my computer and so this sedentary behavior has lead me to get back into shape as my weight has slowly crept up these past few years.  Although I have two little ones who definetely keep me on my toes, my snacking habits throughout the day has also contributed to my weight gain.  I'm aware that a combination of diet and excercise will not only help me to be where I should be on the scales but also help me live a longer life. 

I've heard good things from friends who've been on Nutrisystem and so when I was accepted into the 10 day Nutrisystem Blogger program I was excited to start.  I received a fabulous box full of frozen food's from Nutrisystem.  If you are not home during the day like me its no problem to receive frozen food on your doorstep as the food is carefully packaged to sit out on the door step until you get home.  The premise of Nutrisystem is portion control and this is achieved by their food plan. 

I received frozen food items for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack time.  I will be posting my favorite food from each of these meals.  I'll start today's post with breakfast which is the most important meal of the day.

BREAKFAST


During the weekend, I typically eat a bowl of cereal with 2% milk, or low fat oatmeal and occasionally will splurge with a pastry or breakfast sandwich.  The weekend is my weakness as we often go out for breakfast or my husband will cook a mean breakfast.  So portion control is required especially at weekends.  The breakfast items I received in my pack included French Toast, Pancakes, omelets and breakfast burritos.  My favorite was the breakfast burrito which combines eggs with red and yellow peppers, along with beans, all in a flour tortilla.  It's pretty hearty that heats in just minutes in the microwave.  At only 210 calories and 4g of fat its a good healthy and yummy start to the day.  While I was worried that I'd be hungry mid morning on only 210 calories I realised its ok to have a snack mid morning to prevent cravings - again its all down to portion control.  There's no need to skimp on taste.

The frozen foods are available in select food plans - more information are provided here

Tommorow, I'll review the frozen lunches provided.

Disclosure: Nutrisystem is providing their food and program to me free of charge in exchange for blogging about my experience as part of the Nutrisystem Nation Blogger Program.  These opinions are my own and others experiences with Nutrisystem may vary.

Enhance your Eyes with the L’Oreal One Sweep Eye Shadow & Double Extend Eye Illuminator


I love playing around with eyeshadow, especially mixing and matching the beige shades - I typically start with a darker shade at the bottom of my eyelids moving up with lighter shades.  The new L'Oreal Paris One Sweep Eye Shadow is such a cool idea especially when on the go as you no longer need to bring your whole pallette with you.  Just bring along your L'Oreal One Sweep Eye Shadow Compact and now you can have the whole blended look with one sweep action.  The applicator is shaped like the contours of your eyelids and after sweeping the color on you can blend and soften edges.  There is a mirror inside that can aid with application while on the go too.


Read up on Eye Shadow Made Easy here.

Whle my lashes are black they are neither thick, luscious or long and need a helping hand from my old friend the mascara.  The L'Oreal Double Extend Eye Illuminator involves a two step lengthening mascara professionally developed to illuminate your eyes.  Step 1: Lengthen & Intensify, Step 2: Illuminate.  I'm impressed with this new product and although I prefer the primer in the L'Oreal Double Extend product the combination of the three will make for thick luscious and long lashes.

Raw Vegetables never looked so yummy with Otria Greek Yogurt Veggie Dips


At parties you'll always find some kind of dip.  Dips are the best as these are the times when you'll find adults and children alike eating raw vegetables of their own free will.  Of course moderation in how many times you dip is needed as the positive health benefits of raw vegetables can be negated by the calorie laden dip involved.  However, this can be avoided when using Otria Greek Yogurt Veggie Dips.

Marzetti the company that produces yummy tubs of vegetable dips has now come out with a lighter more healthier version. With only 60 calories per serving (2 tablespoon) compared to 110 for the traditional Marzetti vegetable dip, this means you can dip nearly twice as much.  These are offered in five yummy flavors: Garden Herb Ranch, Cucumber Dill Feta, Chipotle Cheese, Salsa Cilantro and Spinach Artichoke.  Now in order to get 5 portions of veggies in per day, all I need is Otria Greek Yogurt Veggie Dip.  There are some fabulous recipes to try out here.  The kids loved dipping their carrot sticks in the Otria Garden Herb Ranch during snack time and I'm looking forward to trying the other dips at one of my playdate parties.

Shiver Me Timbers - Pirate Costume Review from Costume SuperCenter






Halloween is a fun time for costume dress up, but the costumes are not wasted as they get used all throughout the year. Each child has a trunk that is filled with their halloween costumes and any time we have a playdate they go through the trunk and I'll find a lovely surprise.









I love seeing them use their imagination and of course their smile as they play out their characters. My son will be turning 6 in a couple of months so we've been planning early and Pirates will be the theme. We held a Pirate birthday party a few years back so I'm glad that I can reuse the party decorations and accessories that I had saved.


When given the opportunity to review a costume from Costume SuperCenter, we went straight to the classic boys costumes onto the pirate costumes in the hopes to deck out my little pirate. While my son has not seen Pirates of the Carribean, he knows of Jack Sparrow and the premise of the movie. So of course a Captain Jack Sparrow Child Costume was first choice.




I was impressed with the fast shipping - Costume Super Center offers Same Day Shipping on orders placed before 3pm EST. We loved the whole look and it was true to the picture. My son loved all the accessories i.e. the hat and the beads in the hair and especially the two belts.



BUY IT

If you are in need of a costume, Costume SuperCenter is your first and last stop! Costume SuperCenter offers over 4,000 different costumes and accessories in the latest styles and from the hottest licenses including Disney, Marvel, Nickelodeon, Barbie, Star Wars, Superman, Universal, and many more!

Military Tuition Benefits at Ashworth College

This post brought to you by Ashworth College. All opinions are 100% mine.

 

I was very fortunate to be offered full scholarships and paid living expenses for my Degree and Masters back in England.   When I moved to the US I was shocked to find out how much college costs over the pond.  Its sad that only those whose parents can afford it could consider College with ease.  For all others it means a hefty loan at the end of your studies which could take years to pay off.  We have two little ones and goodness knows how much it will cost when its their turn.  Of course everyone hopes their child is offered a scholarship based on merit through sports or their grades but that is not guaranteed.

 

 Whether you are considering college for your children or even for yourself to take the next step in your career path, Ashworth College should be on your list to consider.  Ashworth College offers a comprehensive and nationally accredited online education.   Ashworth College offers more for your money than other educational institutions. The reason? There is no brick or Mortar to maintain, so they save on expenses and can pass along the savings to you.  Your textbooks and study materials are included in your tuition.  With tuition at 50% less than the average online accredited schools  your money goes that much further so you can focus on your studies without the worries of bills.

Military Tuition Benefits

Ashworth College is currently offering Military Tuition Assistance including, Post 9/11 and Montgomery GI Bill Education Benefits.  Military personnel and their families can now receive up to $13,500/36 months of education benefits.  If you're an active duty, a military spouse or veteran this could mean little to no out of pocket expenses to achieve your educational goals.  Wouldn't it be nice to graduate without debt?  To enroll or learn more head to Ashworth College website.

No Unexpected car repair bills with AutoAssure

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of AutoAssure for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

A car to me is something that gets me from A to B.  I'm not fussed by how fast, how expensive or go fast stripes but of course it must be reliable and safe.  The one thing I hate is the uncertainty of how much a car really costs, when you add insurance, maintenance and unexpected repairs it all adds up and to top it off the car depreciates dramatically from day one.  You can lessen the blow by doing your research when buying your car, undertaking regular maintenance and purchasing the right insurance coverage for accidents and damage.  But have you covered yourself from unexpected car repair bills after your manufacturer's warranty has expired?  Doesn't it always happen that your car check engine light pops on as soon as the warranty expire?
 
AutoAssure offers Customized Vehicle Protection Plans for your car, truck or SUV.  They are an independent nationwide company marketing Auto Coverage As Seen On TV behalf of industry leading administrators.  There are four flexible extended service plans to choose from that fits your needs.  With these plans you can choose from an ASE-certified mechanic or dealership of your choice, no out of pocket expenses for covered repairs option available, rental car coverage, roadside assistance, trip interruption coverage.  Wouldn't it be nice to know up front how much your car really costs - no hidden or surprising costs to encounter.  Sign up here to receive a quote from AutoAssure
