Our Journey with Jenny {Jenny-Set-Go} | Health | vol. 7


🎉As of today, I’m down 4⃣ more pounds with Jenny Craig!

I’ve been told that my weight loss journal {here on my blog} & my fairly noticeable results are inspiring. Two of my friends have even signed up for the Jenny Program. To top it off, there’s a deal going on this week. If you sign up Sept. 13 – 16 you’ll get a whopping 50% off ANY program. WOW! Call the number on the photo for details. ☎

Back to me… LOL. It’s kind of funny to think of THAT word… Inspiring. Often, Ive been referred to as inspiring. Hearing, “Jen, you are a confident plus size woman.That’s so inspiring.” always made me feel great. A bit ironic now though, considering this NEW journey of mine is one of weight loss. Super cool nonetheless. 💚

Here’s to hoping that you too are “inspired” by my journey. & ready to head down your new path.

My Program:
🍴•1500 calorie set meal plan via Jenny Craig
🙅•Insanity exercise DVDs for approx. 40 minutes 5-7 times per week.

🍓Cheers to feeling great!

xo, Jen

This is what I call uplifting! A note {via mail} from my awesome @JennyCraig consultant. Down 4 more pounds this week! Ta ta for now… Off to get some Insanity on. 3-2-1’s … I’ve got you! 😉

oxo, Jen

P.S. This morning, a coworker shared that I inspired her and a friend to sign up for the Jenny Craig program yesterday. Yay!

This is today’s grub. Just add salad. 😉

After doing the calculations, food for the Jenny Craig program costs around $15.00 per day… Yes, per DAY. That’s a bonafide STEAL! MmHmm, Especially for those of you who tend to eat out often. I can’t tell you the last time I spent $15.00 on my meal out.

Here’s a list of some of my FAVES:

Cheesy Potatoes & Chicken
Lemon Cooler Cookies
Salisbury Steak
Oatmeal Raisin Anytime Bar

Off to exercise…
Cheers to Health!

Our Journey with Jenny {Jenny-Set-Go} | Health | vol. 2

It’s been one week with Jenny|Set|Go and I’m down 6 pounds.

Old school diet brain washing is SOOO not what’s happening with this new Jenny lifestyle of mine. I get to eat! {Wow, I hadn’t realized the reality of a portion. But, now I do and I’m conscious about my food.} I get to snack! {I have to protect my stash from my 2 and 3 year-old daughters though. 🙂 } And to top it off, the food is good!


Breakfast                              Lunch                          Dinner


My favorite meal happened to be Jenny’s Florentine Breakfast Pizzas. OMG! This new found love is ironic considering I am NOT an egg fan– at all. But, after devouring this perfectly-flavorful-fluffy plate of goodness I wanted to do nothing but LICK my plate! Yum. {Well, the calories are measured out for me… I didn’t want to leave any behind. LOL! Really.}

With this meal I added a cup of plump blueberries and a latte.  The blueberries were picked, by my CarseatDancers and me, fresh from our local patch… the Temecula Berry Co.  Yummy! It’s a good thing we went pickin’ when we did since Blueberry season has officially come to a close. My next meals will be accompanied with whatever seasonal fruit is available.



This Jenny grocery bag is HUGE! For $6 and some change it’s sooo worth getting. My Jenny consultant and I were actually able to pack one week’s worth of food in and we had room to spare.  Once I got home I unloaded the dry foods and placed the whole bag into our freezer. FULL!


Jenny’s Metabolic Max FIT Armband and Activity Manager by BodyMedia™ I’ve been eying the Metabolic Max accessory package which includes a plethora of online tools that work simultaniously with the Jenny Craig food and fitness goals. It measures calories consumed and burned and gives accurate insight into metabolism of the person wearing it. It suggests what you’re lacking and what is working.  In the high-tech media world that I call reality this tool is such a cool addition to the Jenny program. Maybe I’ll pick one up next week.


I’ve been doing a 45 minute walk daily and have tried the warm-up for the Insanity workout twice.  My hubby and Carseat Dancers have even joined me. Who knew working out would be so invigorating?

Our Journey with Jenny {Jenny-Set-Go} | Health | vol. 1

Hi, I’m Jen! Welcome to DancingInCarseats. My sister Kristin & I are happy to have you join us on our “Journey with Jenny.” (Jenny Craig) With support from our Jenny|Set|Go consultants and each other we (& you) will be able to stay motivated, share weight loss tips, exercise routines and updates on our transformations.

Dear Body,

We need to start eating healthier! It’s time to exercise regularly by taking the Carseat Dancers on a daily walk (& trying a bit of Yoga & a dash of this Insanity madness too.) We’ll start by visiting our local Jenny Craig facility and sticking to their RULES. I vow to check in weekly (on the BLOG & with my sister) to stay up-to-date & motivated as Jenny will give us that “extra kick in the pants that we need” to rock this temple. Ok, it’s time to let this journey toward a healthier lifestyle begin. Ready or not? Jenny-Set-Go!

Cheers to better health!

xo, Me

P.S. Oh, and we don’t even need to count calories… Jenny has done all of the counting and measuring for us.  Whoo hoo!
