My Weight Loss Journey and Jenny Craig #JennyCraigMoments

My Before Pic. Starting in January and in August.

My Before Pic. Starting in January and in August.

* Disclosure: I am being provided with a free trial Jenny Craig program and meals. However, all opinions are my very own and so far I’m absolutely loving it!

I’ve battled with my weight since I was 8. I’ve gained weight steadily over the years, especially with the birth of each of my children. I turn 40 in two months and I decided back on January 1st that I was tired of being obese and unhealthy. On January 1st, 2015, I made a decision to change my lifestyle. I started moving a lot more and ditched the fast food/junk food. I lost 80 pounds in 7 months and then things started stalling. I started on a low carb diet and I have to be honest, I couldn’t  take it any longer. It is no longer sustainable for me. I need variety and complex carbs.

I love that that you can do Jenny Craig online or in person. I have a center only a few minutes from home.

Enter Jenny Craig.

I needed something other than low carb eating. I have been terrified of adding any carbs to my diet and I knew that truly that is no way to live. I decided to give Jenny Craig a try. I was a little familiar with their food and program. Jenny Craig provides structure and support to help members lose weight and most importantly, keep it off for good. There are over 100 different entrees, snacks,and desserts to provide a nutritionally balanced menu. Can you say cheesecake for dessert? Yes, I have a healthy breakfast, lunch, dinner, and have room for dessert!

I love that the food is balanced. You can eat carbs. You can have fruit. It’s been an amazing couple of days so far. I also love the support from my personal consultant. It’s so comforting to be able to talk to a person one on one. I think it’s what makes Jenny Craig so different than other programs.

But really lets talk about the food. I don’t feel starved. I feel full and I don’t have to think what I’m going to eat. Boom, it’s all there for me. Plus it tastes so darn good. I’ve had lava cake, delicious breakfast sandwiches and even pizza for lunch. You won’t get bored friends.  For someone that is super busy, I couldn’t ask for a better program. Members eat 6 times a day(3 main meals and 3 snack).  I know that I will achieve my goal weight with this amazing program.

Jenny Craig just launched more than a dozen new fall foods and seasonal items and is sharing their latest offer with you!

Smithsonian Day Live 2015 : Free Admission to Hundreds of Museums Across the Country




If it were up to me, we would be going on outings every single weekend as a family. Unfortunately a day out for a family of four can be quite expensive. It’s one of the reasons why I created this website and why I love sharing about free admissions to amazing places. Here’s one of the deals you don’t want to miss!

On Saturday, September 26th, hundreds of museums across the nation will be offering free admission to participating venues with a ticket. In the spirit of the Smithsonian Museums, which offer free admission every day, Museum Day Live! is an annual event hosted by Smithsonian magazine in which participating museums across the country open their doors to anyone presenting a Museum Day Live! ticket for free. Each ticket provides free admission for two people.

There are 40 participating museums in Southern California. Here’s a short list of some of the local venues participating.

  • Zimmer’s Childrens Museum
  • Orange Empire Railway Museum
  • Autry National Center
  • Museum of Making Music – Carlsbad
  • Pennypickle’s Workshop/Children’s Museum
  • San Diego Air and Space Museum
  • San Diego Automotive Museum

All you have to do is head here to register and get your ticket. If you’ve wanted to hit either the Zimmer’s Children Museum or Pennypickle’s Workshop, this would be a great time!
