Happy New Year!!! Time for a New You, time for a change, this time will be the last time, blah blah blah… but really, this time will no doubt be different. So, here we are a week into the new year and with this new year new promises to myself have been made. Albeit, promises that I have no doubt made to myself before, but as ol’ uncle Winston Churchill said, Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm.
The truth is, I have been kind of lost. I have an amazing program that I am on that keeps me energetic, focused, and well, enthusiastic throughout each day, I love it but it only solves one piece of the puzzle. I thought that just by having the energy and the focus I could conquer by tendency to binge, but in reality, I needed something a little bit more. I tried going back to food plans of the past, but they weren’t the same. I needed a new food program, one that was strict enough for me to successfully follow. Some people thrive from choices and loose restrictions… I am NOT one of those people. I need check boxes, I need rules, and I need someone who would I would have to face if I failed.
Enter stage right, none other than the Bikini Boss herself… well, to be honest, when I first met her I had no idea who she was, but I knew she knew fitness. You know those women who own whomever they are without apology, the type of women we should all aspire to be like as far as the self-ownership… yep, that’s her. She is Fit Mom. She wrote a book and I bought it to be supportive of a new mommy acquaintance. Well, that purchase ended up opening a door to a new food plan that is sending all other food plans that I have ever tried out the window. She ended up creating a personalized meal and exercise plan for me and my mind was blown!! It still follows the high frequency smallish quantity meals, high in protein, and nothing packaged idea, but in a different way. The idea being to focus on losing fat and creating lean muscle mass. Easy enough, right?? (Man, I wish there was a sarcasm font!)
Anyhoo… She challenged me to be my own transformation story, and without hesitation, I said, game on! I have meal prepped like a boss, and tomorrow it all begins. I am actually really excited! The best part, our children’s activity schedule has me seeing her multiple times a week, I can’t hide, I can’t avoid seeing her, so that only leaves me the option of success! So, here we go! Day 1 is just hours away!
