Getting Healthy with Nutrisystem: Week 2.

Into my second week with Nutrisystem, I have learned that for me, planning is crucial. Most importantly, I need to plan my day around my food.

Like I said in my week 1 update, this plan includes a lot of food. To keep on track, I need to plan what I am going to eat and when I am going to eat it. I need to plan my grocery shopping, because there are only certain foods that I can supplement with. I am super thankful for the brand name shopping list that my friend Nancy (who just so happens to have her very own successful Nutrisystem story) pointed me to. It is one of the many things that Nutrisystem provides as far as support.

Nutrisystem Grocery Shopping List

In addition to planning the food that I am going to eat and shop for, I need to plan my exercise, because that is very important to the success of Nutrisystem. The plan suggests doing 10 minutes of exercise three times a day for a total of 30 minutes. For those that do not exercise on a daily basis, this is easy to plan. I already have a pretty consistent exercise schedule, so this is simple for me, as I walk for 35-40 minutes every morning already. It was actually the easiest part of my planning this week.

With all my planning, I managed to stay on track this week and saw another good weight loss. This week I lost 3 pounds, bringing my total weight loss to -7.5 pounds.

Brows Made Easy from NARS.

When it comes to beautiful brows, there are a few things you need after shaping. You need to fill them in and keep them in place. For this, NARS has two new products that make doing just that simple. Meet NARS Brow Perfector and NARS Brow Gel.

"The brow gives shape and character to the face – it can create a totally different expression.” -- François Nars, Founder & Creative Director of NARS.

Beautiful Brows: 2 products + 2 steps

NARS Brow Perfector is a must have brow pencil in a velvety smooth formula. The pencil (that winds up and down) allows you to reshape, fill, and design brows however you desire. The natural matte finish and innovative oval shape gives complete control and application. It comes in four shades that are really forgiving and match a variety of colors.

  • SURINAME - Black
  • CAUCASE - Brown
  • KALAMATA - Light Brown
  • SALZBOURG - Blonde

NARS Brow Gel keeps brows in place with a unique precision-tapered brush that adds shape and definition to finish the brow look. It works perfect over the Brow Perfector, to enhance the shade, or you can use clear (my choice) to use without disturbing the color of the Brow Perfector. This comes in four shades as well.

  • KINSHASA - Dark Brown
  • PIRAEUS - Medium Brown
  • ATHENS - Blond
  • OURAL - Clear

Both the NARS Brow Perfector and NARS Brow Gel retail for $22.00 each. They are available now at all NARS counters, locations and online at narscosmetics.com.

MAC So Supreme.

I own more lipstick and gloss more than any other beauty product. The problem is, I can NEVER get enough. Especially when it comes to MAC. I don't know if it is the huge variety of textures or shades or that tell tale vanilla scent, these are just my favorite. Imagine how excited I was when I saw this brand new So Supreme collection, which is full of new lipstick and gloss in beautiful new shades. This was made for me.

MAC So Supreme Lipstick & Lipglass

Inspired by the global trend of lipgloss with tint, So Supreme goes sheerer than ever. The lightweight formula packs moisturizing, conditioning comfort with v application, adding a flushed glow to the lips that lasts beyond the shine. Introducing eight new, limited-edition shades in luscious corals, pinks, berries and nudes – four of which, including Gwi-Yo-Mi and Heart & Seoul, are inspired by Asia. Featuring the slick, clickable, pen-style brush applicator first seen in Sheen Supreme Lipglass, tint glides on effortlessly.

These are so perfect becasue they are full of color, but go on sheer and can be layered. These are just what I needed for a little mid-summer pick me up.
