Meet Kellie, a yoga enthusiast and savvy real estate agent! She’s serious about staying on track with her healthy lifestyle, but definitely has fun with it. Kellie lost 33 lbs.† on Jenny Craig and maintains her weight loss by balancing a busy work schedule with fitness classes and eating delicious Jenny Craig meals. See how Kellie spends a typical day:
I wake up early at 6:30 a.m. to attend my favorite yoga/fitness class at 7:15 a.m. I’ll wait until after class to have breakfast, since it’s too early in the morning for me to eat. This class always challenges me and after I’m finished, I feel more energized and alert (and I sleep much more soundly at night!).
After class, I eat my Jenny Craig breakfast with my morning coffee and an orange around 9:30. My favorites include Jenny Craig Cinnamon Rolls , Egg, Cheese, & Turkey Sausage Burrito and the New York Sesame Bagel.
Pro Tip: Change up your exercise routine to keep it fun! I love staying active by running or powerwalking in the beautiful park near my house or on a lakeside trail. I hike and swim during the summer and in the winter, I enjoy snowboarding.
10:30 - 1:00 p.m. Time for work.
As a real estate agent, my work days can be very long and hectic. I’m constantly on the road and have to eat on the go, which is why Jenny Craig is perfect for me. I don’t have to plan my meals ahead of time or meal prep! With Jenny Craig, I get nutritious food that’s ready to eat in minutes and tastes delicious. Plus, there’s a large variety of menu items so I’m never bored.
Pro Tip: Making small changes can add up! I always take the stairs at work (instead of the elevator).
1:00-2:00 p.m. Lunchtime.
I eat my lunch either at my desk or in my car while I’m traveling for work. I find the Ham & Swiss Baguette especially convenient on busy days when I have back-to-back open house showings. It’s easy to stash in my bag and eat on-the-go!
Pro Tip: Plan ahead when you know you won’t have access to healthy options. Jenny Craig makes it easy when I’m traveling — when my food is ready to go, I don’t get hungry on the road or resort to eating at fast food chains.
2:00 - 9:00 p.m. Healthy snacks keep me going at work!
My work day during the week usually runs pretty late. To keep me going in between meals, I choose a snack or two: apples, carrot sticks, a Jenny Craig Essential Nutrition Bar or the Blue Corn Tortilla Chips ! They’re a perfectly portioned choice when I want something salty and crunchy. I also make sure to stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water, tea or sparkling water.
Pro Tip: Avoid fast food. Before starting Jenny Craig, I was eating my meals out 7-10 times a week for every lunch and most dinners — which contributed to my weight gain. Jenny Craig helped me to learn proper portion control and the importance of having convenient meals and snacks.
9:30 - 10:00 p.m. Dinnertime.
Pro Tip: Add raspberries to your Lava Cake for a healthy sweet treat!
10:30 p.m. Goodnight!
I make an effort to get to bed by 10:30 p.m. to ensure I get at least eight hours of sleep. On days when I’m really tired or am able to eat dinner early, I try to tuck in earlier.
I’m so glad I could share my day with you – thanks for following along! Sweet dreams!
