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!”
