TBB Ask- How Do you Cozy?

What do you mean its already September? Where did summer go? It's Time for bonfires, football and pumpkin spice. It's also time to pull out the cozy things stored in your closet and enjoy a cool night on the porch. This lead me to join in on this months TBB ask. 

The first Monday of each month, the ladies of "The Blended Blog" host a linkup with fun themed questions and answers to write about and share. Enjoy.

Septembers TBB Ask- How Do You Cozy? 

Q. Slippers: Yes or No?
A. Sometimes, but id rather wear my soft and fluffy no skid socks. I like to put my feet under me as I cuddle up for a movie.

Q. What is your Favorite Blanket?
A. I have a small lightweight reversible down throw my mom got me a few years ago. It heats up fast with my body temperature. It's the perfect size for one. I call it "my sleep blanket" because it never fails, every time I toss it over me, I fall asleep.  

Q. Thin or Thick Pillow? 
A. Thin. I could actually sleep without a pillow. I do not like a thick pillow that my face will bury into. I do not like anything on or around my face while I sleep. 

Q. Favorite Warm Beverage?
A. Coffee in the morning but at night, there is nothing like getting cozy with a cup of warm chocolate. 

Q. Robe: Yes or No?
A. No. The name "house coat" fits the title better. I hate to wear any kind of coat

Q. Favorite Comfort Snack Food(s)?
A. I love to snack on a bowl of popcorn with lots of butter.

Q. Movies or TV Series Binge?
A. Me and my husband have our favorite TV series. We never really watch movies but when I want to relax and get cozy, I put him in what he calls "Hallmark hell". 

Q. Actual PJs or Leggings?
A. PJ bottoms with a t-shirt is my favorite outfit. I like to look halfway decent in case someone comes to the door. 

Q. Do you Cozy up on the Couch or Chair?
A. I have my own recliner. It has heated seats and a message button. Can't get any better than that right?

Exact recliner I have can be found Here

Q. Hoodie, Tshirt or Sweater?
A. A t-shirt is my pick to wear inside. If I go out, I like an over-sized sweater made of cotton and no collar. Has to be cotton. Maybe a hoodie at a ballgame but I hate how the hoods pull the shirt close to my neck. Eek!

What is your favorite way to "cozy"?

Nutrisystem- Success Update

I guess you can say I'm obsessed with Nutrisystem. I have been on the program now over three years. I absolutely love the foods. Not one time have I ever gotten sick or had even the slightest tummy ache from eating any of their foods and believe me, I've tried them all. Do I like them all? Na, there are a few of the meals I will turn my nose up to. However, what I may not find tasty, others may like, so its just a matter of preference.

Nutrisystem has changed my life. I have learned to eat healthier and I feel good. My yearly checkups and blood work are great. I have more confidence and better self esteem. I can now wear the bikinis, tight jeans, and yoga pants proudly. I am about 5 lbs away from the weight I want to be and still have room to enjoy that piece of cake or mama's biscuits every now and again.

I'm far from having the perfect body, but I am happy now in my 49 year old skin. Oh and speaking of skin. Since I have been on Nutrisystem, my skin seems to be more healthy too. I no longer experience the up and downs of oily to dry skin and have not had the adult acne in years. I guess my only complaint is the loose skin I have from losing 50 lbs. I'm working on that.

I have more energy. There were times when I didn't even feel like tying my shoes. I would drag myself in and out of the car and I could forget about sitting on the floor. Honestly, I was just lazy and always bloated from eating junk food. Now I can't wait to get my day started as I jump out of bed after a good night sleep, have a healthy breakfast and head to work feeling giddy with a better attitude. Just kidding. I hate going to work, but I do have a better attitude. sometimes.

During my weight loss journey, I have been invited to three Nutrisystem commercial/ photo shoots and have attended two of them. It's been so much fun meeting a couple celebrities and making new friends that are on the same weight loss journey as me. They all have a different story but at the end of the day we all have inspired each other with our success. Those people you see on any Nutrisystem products or websites are real people just like you and me.

I currently eat a lot of my own foods and maintain my weight with Nutrisystem meals, so my journey is not over. If you have followed me, you know that I also like to experiment with Nutrisystem foods and flex meals (meals that are equivalent to NS meals).

With that being said.....

I am proud to announce that I have been contacted by Nutrisystem to join their team as a Nutrisystem Ambassador! How cool is that? This gives me more opportunity to share my food photos and success stories with others that might be struggling to find the right diet or healthy meals. Be sure to follow @Nutrisystem and me @lilidi_meo on Instagram and/or Facebook.

I never know where my journey will take me next.
