I’m really not a big fan of having a specific New Years Resolution.  I used to set them – it would be the same one pretty much through my entire twenties.  Go on a diet, lose weight, exercise.  I mean, come on – sooooo original, right?

And of course because I was in my twenties, I’d wake up hungover New Years morning and get discouraged when I already had to blow it day one on some greasy brunch at noon after I rolled out of bed.  (Okay really this was my early twenties, but still, you guys get the picture & I’m sure you’ve all been there at some point in your life.)

So a few years ago, I stopped with the resolutions.  Because it’s not about having that one month change – it’s about a year around healthy and happy lifestyle.  (Or having a cool to-do or bucket list for the year.  Like, “visit Zimbabwe” or something.  Neat.  But the whole, “hey, it’s a New Year and I’m gonna starve myself and lose 20 pounds in a month!, just doesn’t work)

Rather than talking about the unobtainable resolutions, I  thought I’d give you a little round-up of some great products and services I reviewed in 2012 that have to do with eating right, exercising and getting generally healthier that are great for a year round change.

But hey, if January 1st is what it takes for just one person to change their life to a better and healthier new way, then more power to the resolution.

Some healthy diet, fitness and eating right services and options from Mommies with Style reviews in 2012 include:

Gaiam TV – stream online workouts from your house!  Groovy!

My Fitness Pal. My all time favorite app, website and way of chronicling all I eat and weigh. I have 3 years worth of my weight and fitness regime now in here!

Emeals.com – online meal planning that will help you get organized, eat healthy and lose weight if that’s what you want. Select from a variety of weekly meal plans including low-fat, gluten-free and more.


  1. Loosing weight and exercising are about life changes. You have to be prepared to change your life. These are habits that must be adopted – not just in January. You must continue going to the gym/exercising and eating right- even when you have already obtained your goal. You must hold fast to your convictions and believe in yourself.

    I always found that if I wasn’t ready to make the life change, then things would not work out. I would gain the weight back, or it would be difficult to loose.

  2. LOVE my fitness pal!
