Getting Healthy with Nutrisystem: Week 15.

After hitting what I thought was a plateau last week and making a few changes to become successful again this week (yay!), I did a bit of thinking to figure out what has made me successful on Nutrisystem thus far. I think the one thing that has been super important that helps me in every which way is drinking a lot of water.


It is recommended to drink at least eight 8oz. glasses of water each day while on Nutrisystem. I drink so much more water than that. I recently added a water cooler to my office and figured a five gallon jug of water would last me a few weeks. I was so wrong. A five gallon jug of water lasts me less than a week. I was SHOCKED to figure out that I actually drink almost a gallon of water a day. I'll admit that I do spend a lot of time in the bathroom, but I am also constantly back to the cooler grabbing another glass of water. I use it for my cup of tea in the morning. I use it to my make milkshake. I use it whenever I feel hungry. I drink a full glass before each meal and I'm sure to drink a full glass with each meal as well. I swear this helped me to be as successful as I have been.

And that plateau that I though I hit? I made one little change as suggested the counselors at Nutrisystem, and that was to change up my lunch and dinner few times a week. It was suggested that I eat lunch at dinner time and dinner at lunch time. I did that three times this week and I think that did the trick! I lost 2.5 pounds this week, making my total weight loss to date 24.5 pounds! I was shocked and pretty proud to see the number that I did on my scale this week.

Herbal Essences Hydralicious Collection.

I have been a long time fan of Herbal Essences collection of shampoo and conditioner. Not only do I love the long-lasting scents., I love the way the duos make my hair look and feel. And the price? It can't be beat. The latest addition is the Hydralicious Collection and I'm loving everything about its swirled goodness.

The Hydralicious Collection includes three shampoos and three conditioners made with swirls of both clear and opaque cleansers and conditioners. They are hard to miss with their fun and funky swirled look. When combined with water, the swirls release moisturizers, wrapping hair in a thick, creamy lather for a fruit-filled, moisturizing treat.

If you want volume... choose Herbal Essences Hydralicious & Volume Boost. This one was created for hair that needs a boost of body and hydration due to the over effects of styling and everyday damage. I definitely over process my hair and need all the volume boosting power I can get, so this one is for me. The swirl acts like a butterfly net to give hair the moisture it need, but does so that is does not weight it down. That is so important, especially when you work so hair to give it the volume you want.

If your hair is dry... choose Herbal Essences Hydralicious & Silky Boost. This duo helps get the right balance of hydration where your hair needs it most. By giving extra conditioning to areas in need, dry ends  are left hydrated, smooth and shiny.

If your hair is damaged... choose Herbal Essences Hydralicious & De-Damage Boost. This pair was created for dry, damaged, frizz prone hair that need that extra bit of conditioning help. It also provided extra protection against those sources of dehydration (such as coloring and heat damage) to give your hair the smoothest, better looking hair you want.

Look for the new Herbal Essences Hydralicious Collection at your favorite drugstores and mass retails now. Each shampoo and conditioner sells for just $2.99 each.
