Noom Psychology Works LOL

          So, it is Wednesday, and I am up LOL I have my coffee and am waiting to take my dog to the vet for a booster shot (Shhhhhh do not tell her yet).  I have been a bit busy so have not posted in a few days. OK not busy, just have not been sitting at my computer much.  I finished up my paralegal program this week, so no school until next month.  I never know what to do with myself in between classes. I take college courses for 2 major reasons: it keeps my mind active and gives me something in common with my adult son. This coming fall we are taking Spanish and Foreign Politics together. Both courses outside my comfort zone, but he totally gets them LOL.

                This weekend was Independence Day.  We had a nice time relaxing at home.  We made BBQ chicken and burgers. Luckily, the holiday fell on my cheat day so I could indulge a bit. We watched Raya and the Last Dragon together, then lit sparklers while watching all the neighbor’s fireworks. They all put on spectacular displays LOL. No need to drive anywhere.

                After the holiday it was back to my diet.  Last week the scale did not move which was a bummer, but I did not give up. Noom app is always telling me that is okay.  Good grief the psychology part of it is working a bit LOL I actually did not get too discouraged.  I am hoping this week it changes a bit for the better. I have been getting in a lot of steps and watching my calories. I have been saving calories on snacks to use for bigger meals LOL well more decadent meals. I discovered quite painfully that I can no longer eat as much as I used to. One burger (no bun) + some BBQ chicken and I had a stomachache LOL I did not eat again until the next afternoon I was still so full.

                Yesterday on Noon app it introduced the 4 Pillars of Health: Nutrition, Exercise, Sleep, and Stress. All those areas influence weight and overall health.  So now I have to focus on better nutrition, not just calories. I need to realize exercise does not really aid in weight loss, but rather keeps body functioning better, I need to get more sleep, and I need to manage my stress better.  If I do all those things, then I will have a better chance at succeeding with the Noom program. I am doing well with the exercise, but the rest is still a work in progress.  I am trying to eat healthier and take vitamins. Stress is always there, but I am working to not let it get to me. I try and live as drama free as possible. The hardest one for me to get a grip on is sleep. I can fall asleep very easily, but just for naps. I do not remember when I ever just got 8 hours straight. Probably was before I had kids LOL.
