The Crazy Suburban Mom: A petite little flower of a pair of hips...

A petite little flower of a pair of hips...


Another week of  Nutrisystem  and exercise completed and yep, feels good. Feels darned good...  And if I'm being honest that half pound I lost this week feels pretty spectacular too.  And for anyone who doesn't think losing half a pound is a big enough deal ... To that I say my joy at losing this half-pound knows no bounds.  

A few years back I wanted to buy a perfectly fabulous black knit skirt.  It was smooth and swingy, so soft and lovely... But a bit on the clingy side. And you see... I had these odd bulgy things round about the hip area and short of doubling up on SPANX the skirt wouldn't work so I didn't buy it.  

And you know what?  Turns out those odd bulgy things were that half-pound I just lost...

No kidding, my hips (and I still have quite a ways to go with them before they are petite little flowers of a pair of hips) are smoother, more hip-like, less like a sack of soccer balls bouncing towards the river.  

It's probably the combination of the half-pound loss and the walking which makes sense because  Nutrisystems the whole program, not just what you eat.  I went to the site looking for things to keep me moving and found three I've started to incorporate into everyday.

Wear your walking shoes - Even if you don't have a workout on tap, put on your walking shoes when you're heading out. You'll be more likely to walk farther.  (This was a hard one, everyone knows Jersey girls wear flip-flops...  Even in the snow.)

Take the high road - If you're walking, pick a route up a nearby hill. You'll gain strength and stamina.  ( This was an easy one! Even walking to my door is up hill.  I've always hated that but now I realize it's a good thing.)

Walk in place - This is especially good to do while you're watching your favorite TV show. Imagine how much you can move in an hour! ( An A-ha! moment... )

There are many tips like this on the  Nutrisystem website but I imagine just these three will boost my daily movement quite a lot.  

Who wants to try one of these and be half-pound less next Friday?
