quote
6:02 am
help you start the new year right, mentally, financially and physically. >> and speaking of mental fitness, dan harris is here with great meditation tips coming up. i definitely need that in the new year. i need some zen. >> all of that's ahead, but let's get the headlines. >> happy new year to you. we begin with the celebrations happening around the world. >> five, four, three, two, one. happy new year! >> despite soggy weather, more than a million partiers packed into times square for the new year's eve celebration. in paris, light show dazzled in the arc de triomphe amongst protesters, and a display in dubai, becoming the largest pyrotechnic display ever. turning now to president trump ringing in 2019 at the white house, and posting this message on twitter.
6:03 am
>> while i'm at the white house working, you're out there partying tonight, but i don't blame you. enjoy yourselves. we're going to have a great year. have a really, really happy new year. >> president trump says he is willing and able to negotiate an end to the government shutdown, but he is not giving up his fight for the border wall. the democrats plan to introduce two spending bills when they control the house this week, but neither include the wall. meanwhile, federal workers are now suing the government over the shutdown saying it's not fair that an estimated 420,000 government employees are being forced to work without pay. this morning, the urgent manhunt continues in texas for the man who killed 7-year-old jazmine barnes sunday morning. police releasing this image of the truck believed to be the killer's, but so far they have not identified the shooter. terrifying moments at a marina in ft. lauderdale, florida. two explosions sending this boat up in flames.
6:04 am
take a look. the camera capturing a man jumping off the boat just in time. he is burned, but expected to recover. no word yet on what caused that blast. and 2019 starting off with severe weather across the country. a blizzard clobbered the dakotas causing whiteout conditions. cars spinning out of control on icy roads in washington state, and storms in tennessee triggering flash flooding. sending this tree crashing into a
6:05 am
we'll be back with another news update next hour, but let's go back to times square with cecilia. thank you, eva. now to a look ahead to a year ahead in the white house. that means a new congress, a new white house. that means robert mueller's investigation. my friend holding down the fort there, senior congressional correspondent mary bruce and terry moran. happy new year, you guys. [ applause ] >> happy new year. >> so terry, any way you slice it, this is going to be a huge year for mueller. >> reporter: this is really the showdown year, right? between donald trump and robert mueller. it is a story that as you well know could consume this white house, this presidency, or not because robert mueller because he has not leaked unlike other prosecutors. it's still a black box. there is a lot of smoke there.
6:06 am
what we'll learn is just what he has got, if anything, on the president of the united states, and then that key moment. what does donald trump do as that prosecutor comes closer if he does? does he fire him? does he plunge the country into a crisis that way? but right now, it is a black box pretty much. we know there is smoke, smoke, smoke. is there fire? >> that's not the only investigation, mary. you have got your eye on the hill. they have got a ton of investigations they are potentially looking into. >> reporter: remember, democrats now are in control of the house when they come back here later this week and that means they will be putting this white house, this administration under an intense microscope. they feel the president has been able to act unchecked so not only are they looking at what robert mueller is doing in the russia investigation, but they are looking at his tax returns to conflicts of interest, to possibly looking at the business dealings with his family. there is a really wide net that congress is casting here, and of course then, they can't just investigate. they know they also have to legislate and so you're going to see them take action.
6:07 am
likely first up is something to show that there is a new sheriff in town. they will be taking action to try and address corruption in washington. they certainly know, especially democrats are well aware, that americans are fed up with this town and they want to send a message that they are here and they are setting a new tone. >> wait, are you telling me that 2019 is going to be just as busy as 2018? i thought we were going to catch a break. >> i think it will be even more busy. >> it may be more busy and that piece that's missing is the one that people want. what are they going to do together, right? this guy is a fighter. the democrats are spoiling for a fight, but the country wants to see some kind of progress made, some actual deal, and i think they will get that message maybe on infrastructure, right? maybe on the opiate crisis, the worst drug crisis in the history of the united states. maybe they will do a deal. >> terry, ever the optimist. there are areas for potential compromise, but look, democrats are in charge of one chamber, and republicans the other. that means fwridlock.
6:08 am
>> 2019 is all about get ready 2020. the president is campaigning for a re-election. democrats are already throwing their name in the hat. you know, we have got potentials like joe biden, kamala harris out of california. but for me, the big question is, will there be a republican challenger in this? do you care to take a guess? >> if there is a republican challenger, that person will not win. the republican party is now the trump party and you can see in the midterms, if trump comes to your state, you have a much better chance of winning and the idea that someone would take him on and dislodge him from the republican party, you would have to have a completely different world which robert mueller may create, or not. >> and there are so many people, especially up on the hill who are eyeing this part of town, right? republicans included, maybe some who have recently retired or recently left the hill, but man, it's going to be a real uphill battle for any republican. >> i do think for the democrats the question for them is, do
6:09 am
they want to fight and get down in the mud with trump or are they going to try what beto o'rourke tried? something positive and populous. >> there will be meditation tips later in the show. you should stick around and watch. i need them. i know you do too. happy new year again. amy and lara? now we'll take a look at how to get financially fit this new year, whether it's improving your credit score or eliminating those debts. >> and for that, our chief economics correspondent rebecca jarvis is here with more. good morning and happy new year. >> happy new year. good to see you. yeah. so we say this every year. this is going to be it. this is going to be the year i finally get my finances in order. so let's make 2019 the true year of financial freedom. here are a few tips to get you started. >> reporter: this morning, the most important things you can do to keep those new year's money relutions. first up, know your credit score. at annualcreditreport.com, you can see it for free. amend any errors and make sure
6:10 am
there are no fraudulent accounts in your name open. with a number of data breaches in 2018, you can never be too careful. next, pay down those debts. with interest rates rising, the cost of those unpaid balances with also going up. the biggest gift you can give yourself is a clean slate. it's also a great time to get automated. set up auto-pay on everything, saving time and money by avoiding future late fees. next, make this the year that you actually do max out that 401(k). many employers offer a match and if you are not taking full advantage, you're leaving money on the table. finally, set a budget and stick to it. technology today makes it easier than ever to track with your smartphone using apps like good budget and mint. connect your accounts and see where you can save. and here's the thing, budgeting works. it does take some time, but it is so worth it. my husband matt and i have been doing this for a few years now. it really does make a
6:11 am
difference. lara will be up next, but flea market flipping, that will save you money. >> it keeps your budget working for you. all right, thank you so much, rebecca. let's head over to aforementioned lara. >> thanks for the shutout, rebecca. let's look at your health and what will make headlines in 2019 in this arena. our chief medical correspondent dr. jennifer ashton is with us, and so much to talk about. let's talk about losing weight. every one of us here, right? is going to say to ourselves starting today, okay, i mean it this time. >> right. here's what i have my eye on in the new year. first of all, you have heard me say it before. it has to have the three "ss." it has to be safe, simple and sustainable. there is intermittent fasting. you have heard of it. what it is is you use the clock. there are apps for this, and you set the time during the day that you eat. so, for me, it's, like, noon to 8:00 p.m. very easy to do. largely this works by decreasing the caloric intake.
6:12 am
it's pretty straightforward. if you are cutting out a meal or snacking or picking, you will be generally eating less. not for someone with diabetes who needs to keep a steady level of blood glucose going, but for weight loss or awareness or maintaining your weight, it can meet all three "s's." >> i have a follow up question. >> sure. >> i have two. >> okay. >> would sleeping count? >> you are fasting while you're sleeping. >> what if you fasted longer in the morning? you could get yourself a 12-hour fast. >> correct, and that's super easy for us, working on the show. by the time we finish, it's pretty much noon. >> right. if you go to sleep, you're getting eight hours there, and push breakfast later and before you know it -- >> it's worth a try and some
6:13 am
people like that kind of regimented schedule. >> does it wreak havoc with our metabolism? >> it doesn't. in a day, you're never truly fasting. this is just using the clock to restrict when you are eating and when you are not eating. >> we're going to turn to women's health now. there will be a new focus now on "m" and "m." what does that stand for? >> i care about women's health and men care too. we will be looking at two "m's." menopause and maternal mortality. 6,000 every day go through menopause, and there will be more options than ever. there will be a big focus on postpartum care. our rate has gone up. we are losing women in pregnancy and postpartum when every other developed country is going down. we need to do better on that. >> yes, please. let's continue that conversation. so "m" and "m." we'll be talking about both of those things. jen, thank you so much. happy new year. >> you, too. >> love that conversation. thanks, guys. we want to turn to the power of music and how it's helping soldiers hear.
6:14 am
a program started at walter reed is bringing joy not only to wounded service members but also those who get to see them perform. martha raddatz takes a closer look. ♪ >> reporter: doctors through countless surgeries put these wounded soldiers back together, but it was the music that made them feel alive again. ♪ ♪ do the right thing do the right thing ♪ >> we have had guys tell us that during their darkest period of their lives, being able to play music instead of staring at the ceiling helped in a way nothing else did. >> reporter: creating music corps out of necessity. adapting music lessons for injured service members. >> these are badass soldiers and marines and sailors and they want to work with the badass musicians so we get the best musicians we can find. >> reporter: and they turn them
6:15 am
into the talented artists performing with the likes of roger waters, and sheryl crow. what they didn't expect was how profound the transformations would be. >> i was feeling stuck in a rut, and i felt like i needed to do something more. >> reporter: for army specialist tyler mcgibbon, music helped reawaken parts of his mind and body after he suffered a traumatic brain injury from a humvee rollover in kuwait. >> i started playing music in the hospital, and i guess this brain injury unlocked something. it just has me in the moment of this is my music. this is my time. this is my zone. nothing can interfere with it. just pure joy. >> the design of the holder is a little bit looser so it's great for strumming. >> reporter: music corps helped sergeant shane heath rediscover his joy after he lost his leg to a roadside bomb in iraq.
6:16 am
his injuries left him struggling. >> they definitely helped reaffirm that purpose. ♪ don't you know you're not the only one suffering ♪ >> all the stress, all that stuff just kind of goes away and it's -- it's a feeling of peace. >> i know it's not just these guys who benefit. these women and men who are in the music corps, you do too. >> it's that saying, if you want to help yourself, put your arm around someone else who needs it a little bit more. it gives me purpose. music gives them purpose. >> reporter: arthur and the wounded veterans get so much out of this music corps program, but watching them perform is equally joyful. they are about to pand to the west coast in san diego, meaning they will be a step closer to arthur's goal of bringing the healing power of music to veterans all across the country. cecilia?
6:17 am
>> and our thanks to martha raddatz for that. over to you, amy. >> thanks, cecilia. new year's a always a big day for college football, and today is no different. espn college football analyst desmond howard joins us now to break it down. let's get straight to the games. first up, fiesta bowl, pitting lsu against university of central florida. what is going to happen on the field? >> look at this ucf team, and they are exciting. explosive on offense. number five in the nation, scoring offense, averaging 44 points per contest. they lost their quarterback, mckenzie milton, late in the season. you thought that might slow the offense down. no, ma'am, it did not. darryl mack jr. came in, and against memphis they scored over 50 points. they have a lot of weapons on offense, but lsu's defense, a very physical defense. >> all right, that could be a tough one. let's go to the rose bowl now. we have washington taking on
6:18 am
ohio state, and the major story line actually is the one perhaps on the sideline of course. ohio state's urban meyer coaches his final game before retiring. can the buckeyes take him out on a high note? >> i tell you what, amy. i think they can, and they probably will. i mean, this is a team that went through a lot of turmoil at the beginning of the season because of the whole zach smith saga and all that suspension that happened with urban meyer. so, you know, they want to send urban out on a high note. be careful with this next one, desmond. i'll warn you. we're talking about texas longhorns taking on my georgia bulldogs in the sugar bowl. what do you think is going to happen? >> i tell you what, this game features two teams obviously coming off of some disappointing championship losses obviously. texas, the longhorns they lost against oklahoma, the sooners. and georgia lost against alabama in the s.e.c. championship game. keep an eye on georgia's defense. they lost their defensive coordinator, mel tucker. he left and he took two defensive coaches with him. he used to call the defensive. i know kirby smart is a
6:19 am
defensive-minded coach, but mel tucker used to call the game. so it's going to be really interesting to see how they defend the texas longhorns' offense with a new person now making the calls defensively. >> all right, well, we'll be watching and i'll be rooting for them no matter what. yeah. you had to bring up alabama, didn't you, desmond? all right. thanks for being with us, and you can catch this college football tripleheader today starting at 1:00 p.m. eastern on espn. lara? cecilia? over to you. thanks, amy. coming up, new apps for the new year that can help you accomplish your goals, keep you on track and even help solve some problems. indeed, and what about meditating? there is an app for that. there is also dan harris. he is showing us how to finds the calm in the storm of the new year. just one minute of meditating, he says, can make a huge difference. namaste, my friend. namaste. my friend. namaste. we're all stressed. i hear you, sister. stress can affect our minds.

6:22 am
new or worse heart or blood vessel problems, sleepwalking, or allergic and skin reactions which can be life-threatening. stop chantix and get help right away if you have any of these. tell your healthcare provider if you've had depression or other mental health problems. decrease alcohol use while taking chantix. use caution when driving or operating machinery. the most common side effect is nausea. for me chantix worked.boom. end of story. talk to your doctor about chantix.

6:32 am
meditation apps. >> i think a lot of people might think it's just sitting there and being quiet, but it's not. it's actually a skill it's actually a skill that you have to learn and get good at. >> reporter: there are apps help you get more consistent bedtimes. >> you may want to consider an app like sleep cycle. >> reporter: as counterintuitive as it may seem in this age of tech overload, use it to work on your happiness. >> one app i love is called shine and it's kind of like a personal trainer for your mental health. >> reporter: one feature, a chat robot that you can text about your problems. >> i feel tense. okay. >> then you can see here it has this heart emoji. we got you. >> yes, it's so cute. >> even though i know it's a robot, it gives me a warm fuzzy. >> reporter: these apps have even more reach because they can nudge us beyond our home screen. >> i actually just got a notification telling me it's time to drink water on my apple watch.
6:33 am
if you have something wearable, you can actually amplify your goals and these reminders through your wrist as well. >> reporter: so, even if your only goal for the new year is to stay hydrated -- 2019. and more water. yeah, there's an app for that. another place where tech can really help, sobriety apps from positive messages and connecting with others in the recovery community, they offer support with you 24/7 if you need it, and i just really learned a lot in that piece, especially about meditation and the fact that it's a skill you really need to learn it. >> so important. >> amen. amen. [ applause ] this guy here, our resident meditation expert, weekend "gma" anchor dan harris also with us. also with us, his new book "meditation for fidgety skeptics." >> mm-hmm. i named that for you. >> thank you and i'll take that because it's true. it's a 10% happier how-to.
6:34 am
it really is just that. 10% happier, your first book, we all loved and it opened my eyes certainly. no pun intended to how to close them and try to meditate at least. we're going to get into it right now. >> yeah, i am a fidgety skeptic. you know this about me because we have talked about meditation before. my job is insane. it just never stops. you're covering the trump white house. so you have to hear this from people. i just don't have the time. i can't fit this in. >> you're not alone. not all of us cover the trump white house, but we all feel time-starved. inriting this new book, we took a cross-country road trip and went all over the country in 12 days, which i don't recommend doing, and we met -- the goal was to meet people who want to meditate, but aren't actually doing it and the number one issue we heard is i don't have time to do this. the good news is, i believe one minute counts and we have a lot of one-minute meditations on our app and i
6:35 am
really believe that this is not requiring two hours a day, moving into a monastery or anything. one minute is enough to derive the benefits. >> i can usually find 17 minutes. that's how long it takes to get from the train to my apartment. to uptown. i'm so scattered so when i'm sitting in the subway, instead of looking at my phone, i have a mantra. does that count if i'm on the subway? >> absolutely. as i said, you don't have to find a pristine, quiet place. you don't have to live in a monastery. meditation is eminently portable. you can do it on the subway, you can do it on an airplane, you can do it in your office, you can do it in your car. as long as you're not actually driving. you can do it in the white house briefing room, probably not. not everywhere is eligible. >> is it okay if there are noise and distractions around you? >> absolutely. we have this beautiful gift of
6:36 am
headphones and you can pipe guided meditation into your ears. >> it's giving me anxiety listening to this. which is probably not the goal. i don't think a lot of us know how to do it. >> we were talking about this the other day. another huge issue when i found this and when i did the cross-country tour is people said, i can't clear my mind. as i like to tell people, clearing your mind is impossible unless you're enlightened or you have died. the whole point of meditation is not to magically clear your mind. it's to focus your mind for just a few nanoseconds at a time, usually feeling your breath coming in and going out and then, when you get distracted, start again and again and again. let me say one final thing, what is the point of doing all that? the point is when you see owe distractible you are, and how crazy we are, the craziness has less of a chance of owning you and that is the point of meditating. you're not yanked around by your emotions. >> dan's book is out now on paperback.
6:37 am
check it out, and if you want to learn more, check out dan's 10% happier app. you can do it. so excited. coming up, the top places to travel in 2019.

6:41 am
welcome and happy new year. >> thank you. >> i have taken advice from you and really enjoyed all of your suggestions. i can't wait to hear what you have in store for us this year. how do you pick the top travel spots each year? >> well, to create the frommer's guidebooks, we have journalists all from around the planet and we pull them saying, what's going to be exciting and great in 2019? we then create an article and here i am. >> i love it. all right, let's get right into that list. first up, you say, and this was kind of surprising to me, memphis. >> yeah. >> that's the place to go. why? >> if i were elvis, i would say -- ♪ happy birthday, baby it is the 200th birthday of memphis. they're going to have a year's worth of celebration. of course the barbecue and music will be great, but this is a city on the upswing. they have invested $70 million into the waterfront, a fabulous mile-long bridge. they have taken their attraction
6:42 am
graceland and made it even better with the multimillion-dollar visitor center and on a more somber note, it's 50 years since dr. martin luther king was assassinated in memphis. where that happened, the lorraine motel is the centerpiece for the incredible national civil rights museum. a really moving year to go to memphis. >> so much history. something that i think could shock a lot of people, space major list. >> we're not saying, shoot yourself off in a rocket. we're saying, let's have a science vacation. it's 50 years since man walked on the moon, and so -- yeah.

welcome back to "gma." thanks for joining us on this new year, and lara, you have a special edition of "pop news" for 2019. >> i do. >> wow. the first "pop news" of 2019. >> rolling up the sleeves for this. here's a question for all you film fans. what is the most influential movie of all-time? not of 2018. of all-time. a new study published i in "applied network science," looked at over 27,000 films, across different genres on metrics, and coming in at number three, the horror classic, "psycho." >> i get that. >> third most influential movie. >> no one has taken a shower in
7:14 am
the same way again. >> and horror movies from that point on have used it as basically the sort of be all, end all. the number two is the intergalactic adventure, "star wars." >> that was the first movie i ever saw in a movie theater. >> i remember it so specifically. that's one of the movies that touches all of us in a different way. the most influential movie in history, any guesses? don't look at the prompter. >> i took myself out. >> click your heels. >> sparkly shoes. >> there you go. >> "the wizard of oz," everybody. i wanted to try to explain to you the metrics, but it was so intense. there are a lot of reasons y but three great movies were taken a look at. also the most influential director, alfred hitchcock, and surprised me on this, the actor was samuel l. jackson.
7:15 am
very distinctive certainly. there she is, carrie fisher was named the most influential actress of all-time. i would have gone with, like, vivian lee from "gone with the wind," but i guess the late, great carrie. >> they said it. >> made the cut. there's that. what do you think the secret to success is in 2019? buckle up. a new report in "the wall street journal" says that super successful, 4:00 a.m. is the most productive time to start the day. unfortunately, cecilia, amy, we know -- not sure about the productive part, but it's part of life. apple ceo tim cook even starts his morning routine at 3:45 a.m. when our writers are getting in. twitter has its thoughts on this topic. a man named matt haig posted, i define success as the ability to sleep well. i like joseph.
7:16 am
it's always 4:00 a.m. somewhere. >> there you go. i like that. >> i like p.m. thank you for your thought. finally in "pop news," here's a fashion trend in 2019 we never saw coming back, though we should have probably seen it because they are right there. right -- they're right here. they are right here. >> oh, man. >> the fanny pack? >> it's back, ladies and gentlemen. celebs love the '90s accessory. let me put mine on while you show those celebs. this will show that fanny packs made up 25% of accessories sales growth in 2018 alone. i see you shaking your head no, young lady. i say be open-minded to the fanny pack. so why is the one-time tacky turning into trendy? fashion insiders say, why not? it's a mix of '90s nostalgia and pure convenience, and a little history. of course, you know, the name
7:17 am
was because it was worn on the fanny. >> right. >> now though, they're worn in front or the new trend, if you are really a fashion nieceista, wear i -- hold on. i don't know how to use it correctly. sal -- never mind. >> it's a backpack. it's a small backpack. >> it's your fanny pack. >> if anyone wears it well, it's you. >> thank you very much. they are available everywhere. louis vuitton is making them. they are, in fact, back and if you are traveling and you want hands-free, it's worth it. >> when i go running, i wear a version of it. a runner's pack. i don't call it a panny pafanny. >> honey, it is. >> okay. big dilemma for so many of us. is it time for a social media detox? becky worley is back with that, and i think we all know the
7:18 am
answer to it. >> yeah. kids and screen time, especially for modern 13-year-old girls, they dominate their interactions with peers and their parents. asking a group of ten girls to log off social media for two whole weeks, that might be the first step to a year with more balance. we're in california. ten girls from a few different schools. eighth and ninth graders who volunteered for a major challenge. >> i can't wait. >> reporter: no social media for two weeks. they mostly use instagram and snapchat. new research suggests that screen time is associated with anxiety in teens, and child and adolesce adolescent psychiatrist, jodie gold says so. losing the messaging functions within these apps. they are vital for making plans
7:19 am
and arranging rides. >> i have more people on snapchat than i have, like, phone numbers. >> reporter: another concern, milestones. >> what am i going to do if, like, my friend has a birthday and i can't post that? >> people are -- >> they're going to be so mad. >> reporter: here is the challenge. two weeks, no social media whatsoever. delete the apps right now. >> i can't. >> oh my gosh. >> oh my gosh. >> reporter: we asked the teens to record video diaries throughout the experiment. >> i have been able to just put my phone down and just listen in. >> i can actually sleep a lot better without being on my technology a lot. >> reporter: after two weeks, they reinstalled the apps and we gathered to talk through the results. show of hands, who thinks they slept better? who got into fewer arguments with their parents? they said they felt a little out of the loop. >> i missed out on so much. i didn't know pete davidson and
7:20 am
ariana grande broke up. >> reporter: when they hung out with friends not part of the experiment -- >> they would be sending each other pictures and i was, like, why don't we do something? >> i was, like, we're getting off our phones and we just listened to music and talked and we had so much fun actually and i learned so much about them. >> the upside from taking a break from social media is you have time to do your homework and spend time with your parents and be mindful of your experiences. >> reporter: they were more present in real life. >> i'm more cautious and it showed me i don't need social media at all. i did perfectly fine for two weeks without it. >> i fought so much less with my parents. i have gotten so much more done and i feel like it kind of in a good way made me feel like i was a little kid again. it made me feel, like, you know, not worrying about stuff as much. >> i learned so much from these girls and from talking to counsellors and a
7:21 am
neuroscientist. let me break it down and get practical here, amy. kids hate limits. kids want limits, and we as parents, we have to help them. >> so it sounds like we as parents need a recipe for success. >> absolutely. so the first thing is talk to them at a time when things aren't hot and bothered and you're all mad about screens. actually ask them to watch maybe this piece or some of the other reporting we have done on kids and screens. your kids have incredible insights to what they need and what's bothersome to them. they can say, do screens make you feel, you know, compelled? >> i have done that. because they end up being in a bad mood after they sit on their screens for a long time. >> yes. they know what they need and want and then after they do that, next step, get a media contract. you can go to commonsensemedia.org and download a contract and it will talk about when, where and how much time kids can spend on
7:22 am
screens. so we have karis and sandra, mom and an 11-year-old, is that right? they're signing a contract. any big issues? snapchat. is that the one? >> yeah. >> working to limit maybe the snapchat involvement for long periods of time. that's the second step. final step. you have to layer in limits and basically automate it. use technology to fight technology. you can do this with your wi-fi router, parental controls there to shut devices off. you can do this with apps and the one that we like is circle with disney. this is -- disney is an investor in this company, and we have to disclose that, but this is amazing for the devices you're using. gaming consoles -- >> inside and outside of the house? >> inside and outside the house. you put the app on the kid's phone and it shuts it down when they have hit their limit. >> it's tough to be the screen police 24/7, impossible actually.
7:23 am
>> parents give up because it's so much rough work. >> that has happened with me. becky worley, thank you so much. lara and cecilia, over to you. thank you. all right. so our team is here now with tips to reboot your life helping your body, soul and yes, your bank account. >> they are the wellness dream team. dr. jenn ashton, rebecca jarvis, back along with the author of "the big life." thank you for being here. happy new year. >> thank you. you too, guys. >> so everybody would love to be healther, right? everyone in this room? did you bring a breakfast for us to show us an idea? >> i brought a breakfast and in 2019, we need to keep our eye on the prize here. it's going to be about low sugar, relatively low carb. for people that are big breakfast fans, i think you need to look for the protein, the fruits, the vegetables. maybe a fruit smoothie without too much added sugar. start your day well and continue it that way. you have heard me say it before. for anything to work in terms of
7:24 am
m maintaining your weight or weight loss, it has to be safe, simple and sustainable. >> i'm into that. i'm also hungry. rebecca is here to talk about how you can save more. save more, spend less. >> two important "s's." we sign up on the websites with our credit card information, right? it makes checking out easier, but it makes it a lot easy tore spend, so if you go through and remove that credit card information, i promise you will think twice in the new year about clicking that checkout button. another thing i love, and i do this at home. you set up a separate gmail or any kind of e-mail account that is specifically for shopping. it literally -- it streamlines your life in an amazing way. i won't give out the whole e-mail, but it says shopping in the name. any time you sign up for
7:25 am
anything, you use this account. everything comes back to you and you can track it and then fin finally, i don't know if you're familiar with this. >> what is that? >> what is this thing that you speak of? >> this is cash, guys. if you really, really want to try living on a budget and sticking to it, going only with cash for a month and setting that budget, it really keeps you saving. try it for a month. it night not be for everyone. >> go green. >> go green. >> well done. >> to the expression. >> and you have a way to motivate us as well in the new year. >> we have so much we want to achieve for 2019, and you need something that's going to keep you on track moving forward to your goals. you need a simple trick and i'm a big fan of choosing a word of the year, and i have been doing this for a very long time, and the word is not the goal that you want to achieve. it's a mantra. it's the thing you need to remember. it's the meaning behind the message. i -- in fact, i put mine on --
7:26 am
it's a simple word, not lofty. i put mine on my bracelet. my word for this year is impact. there are so many places where i want to put my energy and if i go to all of them, i'll just be drained. i want to put my energy where i will have the greatest impact for my family, for my career, for my life. >> don't feel like you have to lean in. sometimes it's okay to lean out. >> yeah. >> we all have our words. >> what's your word? >> mine is pause. take a quick breath every now and again. >> mine is pivot. don't be afraid to, you know, sort of -- if you have to, it happens in life. all the time. >> great word. >> both of you guys. >> happy new year, ladies. >> thank you. >> thank you. coming up, 2019, the hot trends are next.

cupertino, los altos, palo alto and santa clara is now $15 an hour. cleanup is underway across the city of san francisco right now, after a long night of new year's celebrations. hundreds lined the embarcadero to get a good view of the midnight fireworks. many made the trek, despite those chilly temperatures. san francisco hosted more than 100 new year's eve events and everyone had to be very bundled up, mike. they were definitely biting last night. i think the fastest gusts are over, and minimal damage is still ahead of us. now, at the surface, we have the north bay getting pounded and especially around napa and fairfield. 21 to nearly 40-mile-per-hour winds. and then you factor in the temperatures in the 40s, it feels even cooler than that in the 30s. now, that's what we're going to have lows for the next couple of nights. 20s and 30s outside of the coast and san francisco. so watch out for frost and maybe keep your pets in those two

7:38 am
>> i don't think you need the alcohol with a bloody mary. it's, like, a meal in a glass. how do you do it right? >> very hydrating. horse radish, celery and just a little bit of hot sauce. not too much. >> okay. >> i like the -- i like it when it's not too spicy. >> i like how you said not too much, but the omelet we're going to do -- we're going to do way too much. that's what makes it so good. what are you putting in here? >> wow. you really are -- you should be a chef i think. >> i love it. >> you didn't mean all of it? >> of course, i did. go with it, girl. i love your style. >> scallions, sausage, bacon, cheese, and when you are done wit, more cheese. sage, fried leaves and you can feel cheffy. >> some people don't like tomatoes. we happen to love them. they're so great. >> they're absorbing, right? >> speaking of absorbing, i want to mention, all i did was whip a few eggs and add a splash of water. water makes them fluffy.

are like me, put half a jar of jam on everything and cover it with butter. >> with it in the pancake mix, you add a little extra? >> you can add fine-ground corn meal to the box mix. is that okay? >> you have my permission. you're dressed for success. i'm here to shush the pancakes and this is easy. flour, baking powder and we'll see you later. half and half, and you can carve out -- >> can i get a ten-second tip? how do you get a fluffier pancake? >> the best tip for that is add double the baking powder, don't telling anybody, and let the batter sit for 15 minutes. >> extra hot pan? >> that works too, but all the pancake batter wants to do is recover. it wants to recover. >> full circle, people. isn't that beautiful? >> you can get all of these recipes on our website,
