Week 25, 2011 Diabetic Snacker's Meal Plan Nutrisystem D
Blogger Nation Program #NSNation Losing Weight Meal Plan



Nutrisystem was
so nice and sent over some "cool" :) suggestions for

dieting this summer and I thought they really were for

everyone not just women on the Nutrisystem meal plan.
So here are:

"Nutrisystem's
Top Tips For Summer Dieting!


"1.Focus on Today
2.Use your Meal Plan
3.Get support
4.Make it worthwhile
5.Drink Water
6.Avoid Temptation
7.Invigorate your workout
8.Take time for yourself"

Here's my take on these tips and suggestions;

The focus on today is a great one to use to keep you on

track. I know if I let myself sit and think about all of

the past day's what went wrong, what worked and what

didn't, I'd wind up wasting a lot of extra time and it

would be for nothing. Because if you did mess up you can

only start over fresh the next day there is no magic

wand to make the past disappear. So focus on today it's

a great piece of advice that will keep you grounded.

I do a lot better when I use the meal plans on the

example sheet on a regular basis. Sometimes you try to

create some meals of your own without using the plan and

I think it's easier to have extra calories "sneak" in on

you that way. That might be why I'm up a pound this week

myself. I did try to work a few extra goodies in here

and there and I should have stuck to the meal plan more.

Support is very important for everyone. We can't do it

alone and the Nutrisystem forums are a great place to

get some support. I also have found helpful suggestions

on my favorite message boards "Pitch it to me" which has

a category for Nutrisystem members on the plan. We can

post our weekly blog post links there if we want and

everyone can help support each other. Bloggers are a

wonderful support system to use for things like this.

Make it worthwhile or make every bite you take

meaningful to you. Yesterday I added in a great new

summer ripe watermelon bowl to my meal plan and I can

tell you that was the most rewarding snack for me I

savored every single bite of it. It's important to

include some of your favorite foods when they are in

season and taste especially great.

Drinking water is the #1 way to help you keep losing the

weight. I tell myself this every single day as for me it

is the hardest of the tips to actually do. I'm kind of

watered out I'm so sick of drinking it but it does help

with the summer heat keeping you hydrated so it's

important. I wish they had a healthy version of a diet

soda pop (cola flavored) that you could drink all day

long in place of water. Now that I could drink all day

with no problem at all! As a type 2 diabetic I have

learned along with Nutrisystem's help that drinking the

water is the only way to get rid of that horrible

chronic pain in your feet associated with diabetic

neuropathy. This week I've noticed in my log books I

only most days made it to 6 glasses a day & I need to
drink 8-9 glasses to keep everything in check. I'm still
in no pain but I did put back on a pound this week. So

that's my proof I NEED TO DRINK THE 9 Glasses of WATER
and so should you.

Avoiding temptaion is something I feel is easier said

than done. Yes we know it's a must to avoid temptaions

I'm just saying your other family members can make it

even harder on you to do this. I did resist the

temptaion yesterday when my kids had one of my favorite
meals "Breaded Tenderloin Sandwiches" it is Brickyard

500 time here in Indy today so those tenderloin

sandwiches are all over the place around here in hoosier

country. But, I did resist yay me!

Invigorating your workout is an easy step to do and

you'll feel so much better after your workout session is

over. I have been containing my walking to "inside" this
week because it's just too blasted hot outside. I'm

still wishing for a treadmill to come knocking on my

door to help me with this walking adventure. I think it
would give me more motivation to do the walks needed
everyday.

Taking time for yourself is so important as a person and

especially as a mom I know you all forget about taking

time for yourself. When my kids were young I did the

same thing. It never seemed to be the right time to make

any time for myself. Now as an older adult I can see how

I should have scheduled in that much needed time for

myself and I would highly recommend you just go for it

and do it. It's just as important as what the kids are

wanting to do. We need to value ourselves before anyone

else but I know we don't. So try harder this week and

make up your mind and take some time for yourself. I'm
positive you will feel better for it.

So there you have the ten helpful suggestions from

Nutrisystem that can make you stay on path and get your
weight under control like you really want to. Right now
they have a spectacular summertime offer that is a great

value so I hope you check it out! You can still make

this the summer you decided to take the time and care

for you! The other stuff will still get done believe me,
it will, try it and see for yourself, I am loving the
Nutrisystem D Nation Blogger Program!

Update note: I had made a mistake with my week numbering the last few
weeks so this is now week #26 post not week #25.

Food Review * Mighty Leaf Tea Year Round Refreshment
Diabetic Snacker Summer Drinks




Did you know that in national surveys it's been found
that Tea
is the #2 drink right behind Water? I'm really

surprised by that info since I'm a huge diet pepsi

drinker or sugar free drinks of any kind. I thought for sure if it wasn't soda it would
have to be coffee. I'm not a coffee frinker myself so
a nice glass of fresh brewed tea is always a good

alternative drink to have anytime of the day. I thought

sure soda pop's would be the #2 beverage people drink. I

guess people know what they want to drink and they sure

do drink a lot of it. That's why tea company's keep

coming up with new flavors to satisy all of their happy

tea drinking customers.

Tea is a drink that is super easy to prepare and you get

a lot of satisfaction from in instantly.
Mighty Leaf Tea has a ton of different products your
family will enjoy trying such as:

tea pouches
seasonal teas
loose tea
iced tea
teaware
gift ideas

It's already been a long hot summer here in Indiana and
it's only just begun!

"Mighty Leaf Tea
is pleased to launch its all-new Mighty Leaf Iced Teas.
Featuring hand-blended, whole-leaf tea leaves, luscious

fruits and aromatic herbs in the industry’s original

eco-friendly tea pouch, a half-gallon of gourmet Mighty

Leaf Iced Tea can be freshly-brewed and savored in less

than five minutes. The flavors include:

■Sunburst Green Iced Tea: A cool and vibrant fresh

brewed iced green tea, it delivers the crisp taste of

sun ripened oranges and sweet citrus that brighten

mountain-grown Chinese green tea leaves. The lowest in

caffeine among all four flavors.
■Ginger Peach Iced Tea: A blissful and lightly sweet

fresh-brewed iced tea, this black leaf tea is infused

with sun-swelled peaches and delicate ginger.
■Calypso Mango Iced Tea: A sweet and cooling

fresh-brewed iced tea with an indulging blend of

luscious mango and tropical fruit that drench South

Indian black tea leaves.
■Organic Black Iced Tea: Made of refreshingly rich and

smooth South Indian organic black tea leaves that are

hand-picked on the dewy slopes of the Nilgiri mountains,

these vibrant organic tea leaves unleash a fresh iced

tea with dark amber hue."


Sunburst Green Iced Tea

This one really does have that right on the tip of your

tongue citrus orange explosion which I like. It is a

great iced tea flavor that I know everyone will enjoy.
I had never tried a green tea before so i was glad I

finally got the chance. It has a truly unique taste to

it.

Ginger Peach Iced Tea

This black leaf has an almost overpowering flavor but if

you like your tea on the stronger tea taste side this

will be your favorite. I'm a more mild light taste

tester.

alypso Mango Iced Tea

This Mango fruitty version is my clear favorite. I had

never tasted a mango before, by itself or in a recipe. I

really like the bold fresh taste it brings so I'm going

to have to actually buy a mango now so I can check out

this delicious fruit.

Organic Black Iced Tea

This one is good and comforting. I think it would be a

great tea to have around at the end of a long hard work

day. Tea is great for keeping on hand especially in the

hot summer months. It's so nice to refresh and cool down

with an iced tea drink.
