The Awesome Couple

“First of all let me say this has been an amazing 10 months for both my husband and I.  Honesty we had little to no expectations and went in blindly trusting Amanda.  I was bored of Paleo and I was at the point where I was not seeing any more changes in my body composition.  We wanted something different.  I am the “that” person – we all are right? We are busy – plates full, work full time, full-time mom of 3 and Crossfitter…and for extra fun I train for marathons.

I have been truly fascinated from a metabolic standpoint that I went from 1400 to over 2000 calories and lost 15 pounds.  It’s actually crazy – most “outsiders” don’t believe me. So when people ask, “Is it easy?”  or say “I don’t have time for that” my comment is it’s not easy: it’s work, commitment, and consistency. But nothing in life is easy. But this is SO worth all the effort. Now 10 months later it’s becoming second nature and it’s “easy”.  I love the flexibility.  It is actually freeing to me.

Lastly, as with any lifestyle change, one of the most important things for success is accountability- that’s Amanda. I felt accountable to her, confident that I could trust her on this journey. We are so thankful for all her help!”

Stronger Than Ever

“I thought that exercise was enough to lose weight but quickly realized without good nutrition to back up all that hard work, I would get nowhere.   Macro counting was tough at first.  I had no concept of portion sizes.   Once I got the hang of the portions and my awesome nutrition coach Amanda educated me on some great recipes, types of foods to buy, and where to buy them things fell into place. While some would say that weighing & measuring everything and prepping meals is too time consuming, I say in the grand scheme of things it really isn’t.  I have three kids and my own business and I still always find time to plan and track.  That little bit of extra time is so worth it!

With the macro counting, I can see how my body reacts to things like eating out, drinking alcohol, working out, and even my cycle.  I see how eating out two to three times a week seriously impacted me.  Even eating at places with “good” food like Chipotle would affect not only the scale but how I felt the next day.  That doesn’t mean you can never eat out.  After all, it is called “flexible” dieting.  You can eat out, go on vacation, and even blow it one day but getting back on track and keeping consistent 90% of the time is the key.

How am I now?  Migraines are gone, insomnia gone, acid reflux and ulcers gone, fatigue- only when I do a huge kick butt workout! Best of all, I am currently 46 years old at 161l bs and a size 8 and dropping!  I can run and play with my 7 year old and not be out of breath, fatigued or in pain.  I am stronger now than I have EVER been.  I am in the best shape of my life and getting better every day.   My only regret is that I didn’t start sooner!”
