Yes, folks, yesterday marked one solid week of tracking everything in Noom (see my last post about starting this adventure.) I have to say, the first few days were pretty rough. Imagine going from eating pretty much everything in sight to eating 1,200 calories a day. Yup, that’s right. 1,200 calories a day. Craziness.
What’s even crazier- I only went over one day. Can you say “miracle?”
I’m pretty sure that this program may work. I, oddly enough, really like it. Each day I have different “checklists” to do. For example: each day you weigh in, there’s different lessons, you log our workout (or your Apple Watch does for you if you sync it), you take quizzes to make it interactive, and, of course, log your meals. Everything checks off the list as you complete it. For a to-do-list-er like me, I’m loving it.
I’ve even started working out. What?!?
Yes, three days in a row. I’m inspired.
I have to say that part of this happened today as I was going through my quarterly achievement and habit goals for Quarter 2, 2018. Next week I’ll do a Mommy Review Monday on the Full Focus Journal. One of my goals starting in January 2018 was to get down to 125 by the time we go on our Bottlinger Family Cruise in July. That was already a pretty big goal but then I messed around and didn’t succeed with Weight Watchers in Quarter 1 like I should’ve.
So….here it is Quarter 2 and I still have the same weight to lose but now only 3 months to do it in.
Where was I? Oh yeah, goal setting for Quarter 2 started with looking at my weight loss goal. I have to lose a little over 2 lbs a week for this to work. How’s that for inspiration??? No pressure. No pressure at all….
Here’s my inspiration photo. December 2005- prior to 3 pregnancies, 4 kids, 3 job changes, and 3 moves. I will never look like that after carrying the twins around but at least I can get closer…and dream….or maybe have a few surgeries….
But, honestly, I think I may be able to do this. Between Noom, working out, and meal planning, I could make it happen.
3 lbs down- only 29.5 to go. I’m rocking Wellness Wednesday. Stay tuned for more healthy recipes and meal ideas. Please, please share yours with me! I can use all the help I can get on this adventure.
