I’m on a new quest. Using Noom to track my behaviors as well as eating habits (and exercise too).
So far I’ve dropped 3 lbs in 1 week and all I did was start paying attention to what I’m eating and remove the dumb choices PLUS rather than sit and watch TV at the end of the day I’m inserting movement and activity.
I am currently studying to get my insurance license and this has required dedicated HOURS to reading and understanding the training at my desk…seated. I swear I feel my ass widening as my mind follows.
No shocker that reducing my caloric intake and staying more on top of my activity has resulted in weight loss. Duh.
Noom is what has made me stick with it. I enjoy my morning routine and training with the app (which is sort of corny and whimsical…not really what I’m looking for at 4:15am).
I don’t really dig the method of logging my food because it’s cumbersome. You cannot view your past day’s intake/logging either (which I think would be a good thing for ideas).
Logging my steps is connected up to my phone so I’m paying attention to that and it’s just mapping right into the noom app. If I do a workout, I have to log it.
So, basically, this is pretty much like being bossed around at 805 Boot Camp when it was rocking and rolling – except I’m the client and not the boss.
Anyway, I’m posting this and my meal and exercise plan to keep myself on track.
The noom app is $159 for 18 months. That’s the offer I’ve got. I cannot carve that out of my current budget so I’m hoping to KEEP my habits.
I’ve done meal plans for a while and really like thinking out the week, my husband’s work schedule as well as our pets (I cook their food daily…spoiled fur babies…sorry not sorry!).
It’s helped me also shave down our budget on groceries too. We spend between $8 and $10 a day per person when I plan and stick to my menu. This does not include alcohol and we’re enjoying that pretty much as we want. That’s a separate budget item.
Bonus: we eat healthier as well.
Our budget includes 3 or 4 nights of dining out aka “date night”. Now that I have a job my days off are different than my husband’s so we’ll have to get into a groove on this. Should it be a day we BOTH work or when one of us doesn’t work?
Here’s my meal plan if you want to take a look.
Also, I would LOVE to know if you are doing any sort of weight loss plan. What are you doing to accomplish your goal?
It’s half way through 2020, may as well remove the Covid 15 I’ve somehow added to my body!
My knees will be so happy!! They’ve been hurting 😦
