NOOM DAY 7: IS IT OVER YET
Welp. Here we are. Seven whole days down.
Things started off pretty good. I even picked up pizza for my dude and and kid and didn’t partake.
I made hummus.
I’m at 1,144 plus I rode on the bike for forty minutes.
But at one point this afternoon, I really wanted to throw in the towel.
I made my first batch of air popped popcorn only to discover five cups of POPPED popcorn isn’t much. I mean, it’s probably enough for a person who doesn’t enjoy stuffing their faces with food, but not for me.
It felt so unsatisfying, disappointing and irritating.
155 calories wasted on still feeling empty.
So I had half a cup of yogurt and it actually made me feel better. I had dinner and now I don’t feel as bad as I have been in terms of hunger.
Breakfast: Two whole grain toaster waffles
Breakfast Snack: Homemade granola bar
Lunch: Vegetable and hummus wrap
Lunch Snack: Bullshit air popped popcorn and ½ cup vanilla non-fat Greek yogurt
Dinner: Turkey sloppy joes and simple truth fries
I seriously wanted to give up today. The idea of never going back to my old ways sounded terrible.
But I reminded myself that in the next few days, I may step on the scale and feel happy about all of this “sacrifice.”
I’m also holding on to the thought of enjoying some decent smoothies from my new blender and I may even buy a giant bag of peanut butter M&M’s and split them up into snack size bags of 120 calories each. Red Foods Forever.
I’m not always sure if I’m counting my calories correctly, so I’ve done my best to overestimate when I can.
Wish me luck tomorrow for my double meal (and BYOB pedicure!)
I hope to check back later down the road to let you know how things are going.
For now, I’ll say while this is working, you really have to be in a very particular frame of mind to keep at it. If you’re already assuming you’re going to fuck up, it’s probably not the time.
I think I’ve been slowly working up to this point and Noom pushed me to be accountable...for literally every single thing, while not giving me the breaks I was probably too lenient in giving myself.
I can’t say if it’s worth the price tag, but time will tell.
Thanks for following along. Hope to see you on the other side this summer with a good Before & After photo...
