Ways to Save Money on Jenny Craig Food

Jenny Craig (TM) Chips and SnacksThis may sound crazy but the way to save money when buying
Jenny Craig food is to….  [drum roll please] …

Don’t buy it!

Ta-Dah!  My work is done…

You may now resume your normally scheduled web surfing.

But wait, does my Inner Domestic Diva detect unrest among the teeming mass of six people reading this article?  Ok, ok, since you twisted my arm, I’ll elaborate.  🙂

Doesn’t take much to get me to elaborate does it?  😉

When I first started on Jenny Craig, I pretty much bought everything from the menu for the coming week.  I mean everything on the list.  When I got the total for the week, I was considering getting a second mortgage.  Which, let me tell you is serious business because I don’t even have a first mortgage!  Holy High Finance Batman!  Read the rest of this entry

Confessions, Bragging, and Losing Ten Pounds Without Trying


Good Me-Bad Me ©2011Forgive me dear readers for I have sinned.

I have been partaking of the chips (well, not whole bags full, I’ve eaten them as part of lunch with a sandwich)…

… and of the Chocolate Pecan Pie (though only a slice at a time)…

… and of the Jack in the Box (though I have been getting the Chicken Fajita Pita, the healthiest thing on their menu).

Yea though I seek to walk through the valley of the Non-Fat, I have partaken of the Half-n-Half (though only a little bit in each cup of coffee, not a third of the container at a time or anything like that!)…

… and the real cheese, both the sharp cheddar and the Swiss (though only a single slice on each sandwich).

I have strayed into the land of the Sonic (though I got the breakfast burrito with no bacon and two bananas)…

… and, I hang my head in shame dear breaheren and sistertheren,  “S-H-A-M-E! ” I say unto you!  For I have…

Week One on Jenny Craig – NOT! – Let’s Dance Instead!

Yin Yang (CC)It is important to not plan too much… 

     Yet, it is important to plan ahead…

Ah, grasshopper, in life, “balance” is the answer
and leads to wisdom.

(That “grasshopper” reference dates me… LOL)

Week One on Jenny Craig

…ain’t gonna happen THIS week!

Louisiana Country Dance HayrideYes, I know, I know, but my time this week has been spent practicing in the studio, taking lessons in the studio, and performing my “Line Dance Coordinator” duties for the Louisiana Country Dance Hayride.  I’m having a blast and the work isn’t all that difficult, but it is time consuming. Lots of emails flying about as I’ve first set up the schedule then more as I’ve publicized the workshops I’ve set up.

And, the event is this weekend, starting on Friday which means that Friday I’ll be driving for 5-6 hours, starting out at an UNNATURAL hour of the morning,  then spend the rest of the day in non-stop work, uhmmm, fun!  Well work that is fun.  Check out the Workshop Schedule.

Then all day on Saturday will be non-stop activities.  Then Sunday will be half a day of fun activities disguised as work followed by a six hour drive home.  Woo Hoo.

Oh, did I mention the EXCELLENT Cajun food at this event?  I didn’t?  My bad.  😉  Don’t tell Jenny.  It will be our secret.  Jenny doesn’t need to know!

So…  friends, neighbors, and the 12 people that are actually reading this blog entry, starting week one of Jenny Craig just ain’t gonna happen.  Not this week.

Countdown Check-list to start Week One on Jenny Craig:

  1. Clean out the pantry of all “bad” “not allowed on the menu” foods.  That means anything like a half eaten bag of Oreos has to go!
