Faster Way to Fat Loss, Week 1

The first step to fixing an issue is admitting you have a problem, right?

I'll admit, over the past few years I haven't really taken care of my body. Let me preface by saying that I'm referring to my overall health and physical well-being. Living in a fast-paced city where most evenings consist of happy hours, receptions or eating out, hasn't helped. Combined with the fact that I rarely workout. Unless you count the walks to the metro, ha. I'd eat and drink whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted and as much as I wanted. In my early twenties I could do this with little to no affect on my weight or how I felt. Now that my "late twenties" are slowly creeping in, things are a lot different. A few glasses of wine results in a two day hangover, I've noticed some new-to-me health issues, yes I've gained weight, and I feel tired and bloated daily. I just can't keep up the cycle of eating and drinking whatever I want and not take into account what I'm consuming or how many calories I'm taking in.

Now, let me also say that I don't eat horribly or over-drink. I maybe have a few drinks a week, and during the week I eat pretty well for the most part. I just haven't been consuming the right foods, as well as consuming too much of certain foods. For example, I may have a small sandwich with bread and cheese for lunch and then have pasta for dinner. TOO many carbs, gluten and dairy. Not enough protein, healthy fats and veggies.

To combat this I attempted to do Whole30 this past March. I lasted 5 days. Why? Because it focused too much on what you couldn't have, rather than what you could. It also had little to no emphasis on working out. It's a mutual relationship... maintaining a healthy diet and workout regimen. There were so many things that you couldn't eat, that that's all I focused on. It also wasn't a long-term lifestyle that I could adopt once the 30 days were over. Thus, I stopped it.

Since then I reverted back to my old ways. Till enough was enough. I physically wasn't feeling my best, was constantly feeling tired and bloated, and just wasn't happy with the path I was heading down. So I decided to do something about it. After seeing how much success Katie, Brooke and Shelby had with the FASTer Way to Fat Loss program, I was extremely inspired and signed up!

Today I start the 6 week journey!!

Last week was a "prep" week, so you may have seen a few snippets about what I was doing over on Insta Stories. I'm proud to say that I followed the food regimen 100%!!! I love that you get a week to really get a good understanding of the program, try out the food regimen, attempt some of the workouts, and ask your coach a lot of questions. That way when you start on day 1 you're not wasting your first week trying to figure it all out. When you sign-up for the program you're given a coach or you can sign-up through the coaches themselves. Each week your coach devises a series of workouts that follow different levels of food intake. Some days are low-carb days, others are regular or low calorie days, training day calories or active rest days (no workouts). For six weeks your coach keeps track of your daily food intake and exercise. You have someone there to hold you accountable, and tell you exactly what to do. As a former competitive swimmer this was something I desperately needed. A "coach."

I'll go more into depth about FASTer Way to Fat Loss as the weeks go on. I mainly wanted to share this post for two reasons. First, I'm going to need lots of encouragement and for y'all to hold me accountable. From what I hear this is a hard program, but the results are well worth it. Second, to share my experience over the next 6 weeks. This isn't sponsored. I'm not getting paid to do this. This is simply me trying to get my life in check, get back into a healthier eating and workout routine, and shed some of the "happy hour weight" from the past few years.

So, here I go!! Let me know if you have any initial questions about the program. I hope to check-in each week with an update on how I'm doing. As well as post frequent updates on Instagram. Again, to help with accountability. Wish me luck!
