I found my word for 2019!

Okay, so it has taken me almost 6 weeks, but I found my word. Audacity is my word for 2019. I have big goals and big plans for this year. I am ready to take risks and do what it takes to achieve my goals.

I have set a new career goal for myself and I know that if I want a different career than what I have now (I’m currently a speech language pathologist), it’s up to me to make that happen.

The first thing that I am going to have to conquer is my weight. I have to get healthy before I can focus on any other goal. This is something that I am taking very seriously. I am in my 3rd week of the FASTer Way to Fat Loss Program and I am loving it! Seriously, I haven’t felt this good in years.

Just a few weeks ago I was feeling so sad that I let my body get so out of shape. That’s a really nice way of saying, “so fat!” I still don’t recognize the person in the mirror. I am not willing to give up and just live like this.

I read the quote pictured below and I believe this is true for me. I want to move this mountain so I can help other women over 40 who are in a similar situation, carrying extra weight and feeling as if they are stuck because they have tried every diet in the book with no success.

I am determined to achieve this goal. I am not going to let self doubt win this time! It doesn’t matter how many times that I have started again. It just matters that I’m here now and I’m showing up today. This is going to happen.

FASTer Way to Fat Loss…YES!

I recently heard about this program called the FASTer Way to Fat Loss and I totally believe that this could be a program that I could adopt for life. If you have not heard of this, then you should google it.

Today is Prep Week of the 6 week program. It incorporates intermittent fasting, carb cycling. It’s gluten free and dairy free. Amanda Tress, the founder of the program says, “If it comes from the ground or has a mother than it’s approved to eat.”

Yesterday I weighed myself, took measurements and had my 6 year old daughter take my “before” pics. Before pics are always such a joy to take and to look at. This is literally the worst I have ever looked. THE WORST! I will share those pics, but I want to wait until I make some progress.

Live Coaching session with Amanda Tress

Today’s goals:

  • FWTFL Coaching Session
  • Cardio
  • Water! Drink 1/2 my body weight in water
  • Only eat between 12:00 pm and 8:00 pm
  • Eat <50 grams of net carbs (Monday and Tuesday are low carb days)
  • Stay Optimistic!

I would love to hear from you if you have participated in the FWTFL program. I would love to hear your experience.
