New Month's Eve! Hats! Celebrate!

I bet you didn’t realize today is a holiday. That’s right, today is a very special day. It’s New Month’s Eve! Tomorrow starts a new month. It will no longer be November but December! What a chance to start fresh and make a resolution to embark on the new month with a renewed sense of purpose and excitement!

Guess what! Tomorrow’s a holiday too! It’s New Day’s Eve! We’ll make the transition from December 1 to December 2. Aren’t we lucky to have another chance to make a commitment to live a healthier life!

And that’s not all! There’s tons of opportunities to celebrate in December. There’s new Week’s Eve. Mid Month Day! Even First Friday! The festivities are endless!!

Will you join me celebrating New Month’s Eve by making your New Month’s Resolutions? I don’t know about you but I’m excited to start this new month and I plan on making it my best month yet!

I resolve to go to bed earlier, curb night time snacking and get back to making the healthiest choices I can. I will also food journal to stay accountable during this month of celebrations. How about you? What’s your New Month’s Resolutions?

P.S. Anyone up for a chat tonight on BlogToLose to celebrate with me? I’ll be online 9PM EST!

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    I’m with you, Roni! I resolve to get back on track with my eating as well as regular exercise. Daily Treadmill, no “white stuff!”

    Ab work!

    Drink even more water!


    November 30, 2008

    Every day is definitely a new day.

    I need to include more veggies in my daily consumption of good food. Stick to my points and get plenty of water are also on the list. I divorced my gym/trainer, so now I have to do it on my own as far as fitness. I think I’ll start hanging with Bob and Jillian again – something with them every day.

    I can do it! I will do it!

    I’ve already resolved to maintain. So today, I resolve to keep my previous resolution. So far, so good. Happy New Month’s Eve, everybody.


    November 30, 2008

    This was a very cute and inspiring post! As always, great job Roni!


    November 30, 2008

    Mine is to get below my redline weight which is 3 1bs after the halloween candy and Thanksgiving. Do more impact at my spinning class. Go to bed earlier would be good too as I know if you sleep more you burn off more.
    Try to take a walk more now its cooler outside (I’m in south Florida).
    Get the cook books out and make it intresting. Finally never lose the fight..this is FOREVER.

    Lost 50 1bs and kept it off 17 mths thanks to WW and Roni.


    November 30, 2008

    I’m like you – I resolve to curb nighttime eating, or at least choose healthier snacks like fruit!

    I never used to be that bad at it, but these days yummy Dubliner cheese and All Bran crackers have been calling my name. I tell them to be quiet but they don’t listen to me. =)

    Good luck everyone!

    What a great idea!

    I’m not one that has a ton of parties and celebrations going on in the month of December (thank god!). The only thing I have is Christmas and work Christmas luncheon. Whew! But that’s enough. :) I resolve to stick to my water drinking habits (30 days now of no soda–diet or regular!) and my exercise with the trainer. Need to up the at home exercise and get in 4 days a week. I can do this!


    November 30, 2008

    LOVE this idea~I have been thinking about this for awhile. my goal is to get that FOURTH 10 pound ribbon at WW by the end of 2008!! I know i can do it! it is very exciting to be counting down to a new year and a new me!

    What a cute post! It’s a great reminder that we do have a choice every day. My resolutions for December will be to:

    1. Go to bed earlier so I can get up and walk or go to the gym before work.
    2. Intentional exercise at least 5 times per week.
    3. Journal daily.
    4. Don’t skip any of my WW meetings.

    Thanks again for the great reminder, Roni!


    November 30, 2008

    I loooove this post!! My resolutions are to begin exercising, quit caffiene, and continually improve my nutrition!

    I resolve to get back to my healthy eating basics after over-indulging a bit too much this past weekend (was suffering from post-Thanksgiving trickle-down effect, I think).


    November 30, 2008

    I love this! My goal is to eat 3 normal meals a day and stop snacking at night. Which is what I’ve been trying to do forever, but maybe this time!!


    November 30, 2008

    I am already practicing today for tomorrow’s new month’s eve! I resolve to track my food and exercise at least 2 times per week. Going shopping today for good food so I can have a good fresh start.

    On a semi non-weight related note, I also resolve to try to be in a better mood about work. I know that it is stressful right now but it will get better – or my husband will get a job in another state that he is eyeing and I will get to move! I think when you are unhappy in one area of life, it starts to transfer to other areas. How can I be motivated about losing weight when work is dragging my whole attitude down?


    November 30, 2008

    Oh, this is what I was thinking of doing, too. LOVE this!!!!


    November 30, 2008

    I’m excited too!

    1. Go to my Tuesday WW meetings
    2. Hit the gym 3x/wk (30-45mins)
    3. Make healthy night snacking options… Journal everything!
    4. Enjoy the New Year celebration already on the right track!

    Thank you Roni, WW & Everyone for the motivation!


    November 30, 2008

    I will:
    Play dinners for the evenings that I spend shopping so I don’t just go out to eat. I will drink more water. I will incoporate Shred from once a week to twice a week into my workout routine. I also need to get to bed earlier!


    November 30, 2008

    oooo GREAT idea with a resolution each month! I wanna stay OP and NOT allow myself a more “free’ish” day only to work it off all wk.

    and yay! I’ll be on BTL chat tonight then! the last one was great!



    November 30, 2008

    I am making these goals for December:
    1) start journaling again
    2) make it to the gym 4 times per week for at least 1 hour
    3) stop putting myself down & comparing myself to others
    4) love me as much as I love my family

    November 30, 2008

    mine is to go to bed earlier too!!

    btw your tree is beeeeeeeautiful!!


    November 30, 2008

    My goal is “early to bed early to rise” and to exercise first thing in the morning. : )


    November 30, 2008

    My goals are: to add 3 days of exercise each week and to add more calcium and omega 3s to my diet.


    December 1, 2008

    Love this post!


    December 1, 2008

    Oops, forgot to add my resolutions.

    1. Get off the computer earlier at night so I can get more sleep. Unfortunately, I am a night owl but I need to break that habit.
    2. Earn AT LEAST 1 AP a day – I know – how lame to aim for just one but for medical reasons it’s hard for me to do. So, if I can earn just 1 per day to start, that would be a big plus for me, then work up to 2, 3, etc…
    3. Continue to maintain my 63 lb. weight loss.
    4. Journal EVERYTHING I put in my mouth!


    December 1, 2008

    Count me in too! My resolutions are:
    1 – journal every bite
    2 – control evening snacks


    December 1, 2008

    My resolution for December is to get back to tracking food after over-indulging on Thanksgiving and the several days following. I just have the one resolution, can’t handle anymore right now!!


    December 1, 2008

    I’m going to take a page from Roni’s playbook and resolve to do SOMETHING active every day. (Today it was the Walk Away the Pounds 4-mile challenge …)

    And I want to recommit to journaling EVERY BITE, every day. (I do OK for a couple of days, then eat something I “shouldn’t” and then the tracking goes out the window for the rest of the day.)

    Great reminder! For me, it is clean and healthy eating. And trying new exercises!


    December 1, 2008

    I resolve to measure my portions, track my food and take classes at the gym 6 days/week. I’ll weigh myself every Thursday morning.


    December 1, 2008

    Hi Roni! I know that this doesnt have anything to do with this post but i figured it might be easier for you to get back to me here.. I was just making up a christmas list to give to my boyfriend and i wanted to put the standard mmmm broccoli apron on it in white from and it seems to be out of stock.. I was wondering if you knew when it would be back in stock.. Thanks =]


    November 30, 2009

    Gosh I posted yesterday about how I was planning to make December my strongest month yet and I can’t believe how many people are feeling the same way. This must be the 4th or 5th post that I read where the author is ready to give December their all!

    I love that. I really think it is awesome that we can all be somehow tuned into eachothers same emotions! Certainly helps alleviate any feelings of loneliness!

    For December I want to stay motivated. I don’t have any number or task goals, my one goal is to stay motivated right through the month.

    December we’re coming at ya! Thanks for the great post!


    November 30, 2009

    I’m in!

    Track everyday!
    Get back to the gym. I have been sick for 3 weeks and really need to get back.
    DO NOT CAVE – attending all the seasonal parties is not an excuse to eat.

    We can do this!
    Thanks Roni
