What I’m up to now.

Day 1:

Every year I feel like I get closer to the type of healthy/ sustainable lifestyle I want. I am doing everything in my power to be more present with my family and taking the necessary steps to control my anxiety.

BUT I still struggle on a daily basis with overeating and using food as a coping mechanism.

What I do know is that I need structure in my life, like a LOT of it.

So for the next 6 weeks I will be taking on a fitness and nutrition challenge at Synergy 180. Over the next six weeks my goals are to:

  1. Firm Up!
  2. Eat way cleaner- lots of GI/ behavioral issues in our house and I am about 1000% positive all of the sugar and processed food that has snuck back into our diet has both affected my energy levels and the overall health of our family.

I am going to make a conscious effort to focus on the inches and body fat loss and how I feel versus stressing about a number. Fingers crossed. I struggle with negative self-talk so that’s also going to be a focus.

I will be following a nutrition program designed by Synergy comprised of lean proteins, healthy fats, tons of vegetables, and some fruit. (FYI the recipes are delicious so far).

During this 6 weeks, I will also be working out at Synergy 5x a week.

Each week I will do a check in to measure my body fat percentage. In an effort to not focus on the scale I have asked the awesome people at Synergy 180 to just focus on the fat and inches lost. My goal is to lose 5% body fat.

To add an even more detailed layer to this, I had the privilege of trying out the DEXA scan at Body Comp.

DEXA scan is a comprehensive body composition scanner to see exactly my proportions of fat to muscle, and where I hold it. I plan on getting another scan at the end of the 6 weeks to compare my results. It was super comprehensive and everyone there was so helpful!
