Day 1 of 60

I really don’t want to tell you how much I weigh because to be honest, I hate comparison.  And my body composition is way different than yours.  But for the sake of transparency and clarity, I will.  I have nothing to hide and everything to gain.

My lowest as of January was 138 pounds.

I stepped on the scale yesterday morning (Day 1-May 1st) and I was 149.  Please don’t judge.  That followed three days of not eating what I was supposed to.  Nothing bad but everything salty and puffy.

Therefore, I going on this journey to get to Saturday, June 30th (my parent’s 50th wedding anniversary event) and feeling lean and strong.

I do NOT like the scale at all.  And rarely do I step on it because it’s such a poor indicator of true transformation, but enough about that.  Here are the starting numbers that I’ll be tracking for you.


149 lbs

21.8% body fat


I’m following a carb cycle plan I received from my coach and trainer Deborah Goodman (I hired her from May to January).  Please stalk her on Instagram…. I ADORE her!!  You’ll see all my before and after pics on there.  If you decide to hire her as your coach, please tell her you came referenced from ME!  I don’t get a kick back of any kind but I want her to know that WE KNOW EACH OTHER!!!  🙂

This plan that I’m following is almost similar to what I did in 2012 to get 12.5% body fat.  That said, I was 31 at that time.  Ha!

Macros are (which I will NOT be telling you every day because I don’t track my food everyday…I just simply follow the same exact plan every day, but PS. I did NOT eat like this to gain those 10 pounds….  that was more like mac n cheese, pizza, Annie’s bunny crackers, bread with butter, muffins, man oh man…..)

150 g protein (that’s about 1 per pound of ME!)

110 carbs

50 fat


I can take a picture for you of my fitness journey but today was about 20 minutes of weights and 15 minutes of HIIT cardio on the stair stepper at Fitness 19.  Nothing too glamorous but I get in there, work short and hard and leave.



Itty bitty steps

that get me to my goal.

I hope you enjoyed this day 1!

59 more to go!

I’ll try to track my weight and bodyfat for you every Saturday morning.  🙂
