There is so much to love. It’s that fresh and clean slate – nothing arbitrary about it. I’m someone who loves planning and goal-making and it’s nearly impossible to do that at the end of the previous year. Not when there are so many days to rest and relax, and eat Christmas cookies. I think most people approach new years and resolutions with a whole heart and wonderful intentions. Take me, for example. I’m naturally slim but when I do gain weight, I get lumpy. That’s because I have a small frame – nothing can bulk it up too much. Mainly I’ve been sensitive about diet and exercise for most of my life, only because my father passed away suddenly in his 30s. I approach this for health and for looking and feeling my best.
Trust me – I needed this. It all started with/starts with a free 30-second evaluation. Noom is pretty awesome. All they ask for is 10 minutes a day, and all they ask for is for you to believe you will reach your goals. And then you will! What’s even more awesome is that it’s the most modern weight loss course known to man or woman. They go by a weekly course and each week you’ll cover a new topic and gain new skills. And these topics and skills are really in-depth! It’s all about digging deeper to define your goals and motivations. I have to say – what I thought was my goal was actually a LOT deeper, and they uncovered that in only minutes. Ultimately it’s about me wanting to be a healthier me and to build LIFElong habits.
My 5 Most Meaningful New Year’s Resolutions Yet:
1 – Finally leave North America. While I’ve been to Canada, that’s the extent of my “world” travels. I need to renew my passport and plan my trip! I’m thinking Greece in April, or maybe Norway, Finland or Switzerland in the summer. Bliss!
2 – Get the puppy, the dog, and myself on much better fitness plans. Of course with the puppy getting surgery, he’s at a slower pace than us but we can catch him up. Moving your body regularly cures SO many ails. It simply must be done.
3 – More fear-conquering. I’ve been doing that slowly for years now – with roller coasters and public speaking and photographing weddings. I think it’s important to let go and there’s nothing so freeing as conquering those fears.
4 – Make small and consistent gestures to be a better friend, family member, neighbor, and all around person. And that includes more helping Cassidy with the house. Whenever it happens, I feel closer to him, and closer to myself.
As I said above, they ask you to believe in yourself and your goals, and it only takes 10 minutes a day to embark on the most modern weight loss course known to man or woman! I love the app and how it helps the journey and provides recipes.
Noom really works, quite simply. Once you dig deep and define your goals, you’ll think critically about how to sustain new habits, you’ll build up willpower, you’ll better manage stress, and you’ll make your new lifestyle last. Noom has a team of expertly-trained coaches to help you set goals, review food logs, and help hold you accountable. Not only will you gain coaches and tools, you’ll get a support group to lean on. Everyone is different, but people who stick to the program tend to lose 1-2 pounds a week with personalized, short-term goals each week. Every person has unique goals and that’s why a personalized plan really helps. Like for me, it’s not so much about losing too many pounds but about having a better mindset about food and what’s in the calories I’m eating.
The food logging is different because they use a calorie density strategy to help you understand what’s in the food you’re eating so that you can make healthier food choices every day. There is so much to learn and I love their approach. There are so many reasons why Noom’s approach really works, and you’re a big part of it.
Join Noom today and see all that they have to offer. And definitely keep in touch with me about how it’s going, and I’ll do the same. I’m really excited to start 2019 on such an awesome plan with brand new habits. I’ve been needing this.
