I was told that it would be helpful if I wrote out what I eat in an average day. Please keep in mind that my workout days look different than my rest days.

I’m just going to put it out there, if I’m being completely transparent, I just am NOT a fan of measuring your goal or success by how much you weight. Nope, nada, no.
Why? Well, I’ve never seen numbers be all that accurate. Nor do I think weight should be the ultimate health marker. I weigh 155 pounds! Holy moly! That seems like a lot. In fact, according to the height to weight ratio, I would be borderline overweight. Seems inaccurate given I am 12 percent body fat, don’tcha think? My fiance actually is borderline obese given his weight to height ratio. His body fat percentage, most likely even lower than mine.

When festivity fills the air, the holiday spirit becomes contagious. Winter, as it is, brings with itself a lethargy and longing for warmth that is found in the most indulgent of foods. Bakeries start stocking up, there are pies on window sills, mugs are topped with hot cocoa. Caution goes out the window and we stop fighting against the holiday spirit and put on the notorious burden we regret as soon as the New Year dawns: holiday weight.Read More
So, you want to drop 20 pounds off the old waist tire? You want to make it to the world wide Jazzercisers competition or perhaps the Crossfit Games. Maybe you just want to start working out in hopes that your slight insomnia will vanish and you can finally sleep like a baby -- snoring, drooling, yapping through your dreams, sleepwalking down the street and the whole nine yards. Sorry to break it to ya, but whatever end goal you’ve attached to working out won’t be accomplished just by working out. You heard me, friend! It ain’t gonna happen.
