I am spending this week alone at my mountain house and so I decided to go on the NutriSystem diet. I shopped at Big Lots and got all the NutriSystem food, supplemented with dairy, fruits and vegetables. You don't want to know about this. Tonight I had a teeny pizza about the size of a postage stamp, a huge romaine salad with fat free dressing, and a chocolate cake mix that I doctored up. If you buy the NutriSystem chocolate cake, try adding some leftover coffee in it instead of water, some cocoa powder, and some salt and Splenda. It's much better this way.
