For the second week in a row, I neither gained nor lost anything this week.  Yes, this is frustrating, since I am following the plan and getting exercise regularly, but I’m hoping for a payout soon.   My Nutrisystem counselor says it’s not all in the scale, which is true.  I’d still (of course) like to see some weightloss on the scale, but I do feel good and have a lot of energy.

The food is easy to stick with and fast to make, which is a plus for any busy mom or working woman.  Who wants to spend all that time futzing with a complicated diet when you can just use the pre-portioned meals?

Recipe for Grilling Vegetables & Fruits

Fruits and veggies are divine when they’re all fired up…

The grill—it’s not just for meat anymore! Firm vegetables like zucchini, corn, peppers, eggplant and onions can be placed right onto a hot grill. Baste them lightly with olive oil, sprinkle with your favorite herbs or seasonings, and grill for 10 to 15 minutes or until tender. Summer squash, tomatoes, and carrots can be wrapped in foil with seasonings and a little water. Then, just leave the foil packets on the grill for six to eight minutes or until the vegetables are tender.

Make sure to watch for my post next week to see how this next week goes.
