I Did It!

Even thought I didn’t get to walk across the stage, I received my Bachelors in General Business from the Mississippi University for Women.  And with a 3.5 GPA to boot.  I was an ok student in high school but didn’t really work as hard as I should have. I put a lot into my university classes though. I made sure I completed assignments on time.  I really didn’t think I’d end up with a 3.5 this semester because I decided to take a Strategic Management class. Had I known that I would be required to complete a group project, I probably would have found another class to take. Afterall, I didn’t need that specific class to graduate. I just needed to have full time hours.  For one, the class was a zoom class.  If Covid hadn’t happened, the class would have been on campus and I wouldn’t have been able to take it seeing as how the campus is 2 hours away.  I didn’t know anyone in the class and when it came time to organize the groups, I had no idea who I would be in a group with.  I ended up in a group with 3 college age guys.  Now, they were all incredibly nice, but I did not know how to converse with them.  I mean I have kids their age LOL.  We ended up with a C on our project which brought my A average in that class down.  I think that the project would have been more successful if we had been able to meet in person.  I was just glad when the semester was over.  However, since I had A’s in all of my other classes, I still managed to keep my 3.5 GPA.

I have no idea what kind of job I want now though. I’d love to work from home but those jobs seem hard to find. I thought about maybe working in HR, but sometimes I think I’m too much of a pushover to work in that department. I’m an introvert so I’d be happy to just be in a back room filing papers LOL. I’ve got to find a job soon though because I have student loans to pay back.

Nutrisystem Kickstart

*this post is not sponsored by Nutrisystem.

I have gained a bit of weight since this whole virus fiasco. I started weight training a couple of weeks ago. Nothing too crazy, just a few exercises to firm up my muscles. I’ve been doing that about 3 days a week. I’m going to start doing cardio a few days a week also.

I know that working out isn’t the only key to losing weight. I bought one of the Nutrisystem Kickstart meals from Walmart yesterday. I would love to go all out and order Nutrisystem from the website but that gets a bit pricey. Besides I want to see how I like the food first.

For breakfast I had the Peanut Butter Granola Bar. Surprisingly it was tasty and filling. I drank a couple of glasses of water that seemed to hold me over until lunch.

For lunch I had the Spicy Kung Pao Noodles. It was more or less like ramen noodles. The taste was ok, nothing special. I’d eat it again though.

I ate the Nacho puffs as my afternoon snack. They look like tiny cheeseballs but have a lighter flavor to them. I was surprised at how many were in the package.

I decided to eat dinner around 5. I had the Rotini and Meatballs which was surprisingly very good. Of course it would have been even better with some garlic bread but I’m trying to stick with the actual meal plan. I am allowed 4 servings of non starchy vegetables a day. I may save those for later in case I get hungry.

So far, the food is good and filling. There are a few entrees that I’m not crazy about such as the turkey and dressing and macaroni and turkey sausage. I haven’t eaten them yet, I’m just not crazy about turkey LOL. Maybe I can just ditch the turkey and substitute it for another protein. I don’t know.

Has anyone else tried Nutrisystem and had success with it? Let me know in the comments.
