Let's talk about alcohol.
Before we get into that, I want to share my weight loss update for 2019. This year, on January 1st, my starting weight was 192, and my body fat was at 25.1%. As of this week, my weight is up to 164.0 and my body fat is around 22. Down to the final 10 pounds!  Weekly Accomplishments:  Ran over 13 miles for my long run Only had beer twice Hit 1000 listens on the podcast! Thank You! This week’s schedule was tough, made for a rough week to build my habits Still reading Atomic Habits: An Easy & Proven Way To Build Good Habits and Break Old Ones In today’s episode, I cover these 3 topics What are the effects of alcohol on weight loss  What are the alternatives? What are some low point drinks that I can have on weight watchers? How to manage alcohol consumption on Weight Watchers.  How does alcohol affect weight loss?  Calories When you drink your body focuses on breaking down alcohol and not the other calories you consume Increase in Appetite Dehydration Lower’s your testosterone level (lean muscle mass) Lack of discipline (bad decisions) When you are in weight loss mode, it doesn't take much to “hit you”  Hangovers aren't good for exercise Bottom Line, Alcohol has empty calories, it changes the way your body (metabolism) functions, and it lowers your inhibitions, so you’re more likely to eat unhealthy foods. Great article on 8 ways alcohol affects weight loss https://www.healthline.com/health/alcohol-and-weight-loss#best-alcohol-to-drink What are the alternatives or how can I mitigate the effects of alcohol? Order a “Soda with a Lime” Set a goal weight to earn a drink  Order water before your meal and order a drink with your dinner Drink 1:1 with water What are the best options if I am going to drink? Note, the points will not be 1:1, they go up exponentially as you have more. Wine - 5 Points Liquor (without the mixers) - Brandy, Gin, Rum, Scotch, Tequilla, Vodka, Whisky 3 points Easy on the mixers and diet soda Light Beer like Mich Ultra Weight Watchers Happy Hour Survival Guide -  https://www.weightwatchers.com/us/article/your-healthy-happy-hour-survival-guide Action Items As always be prepared before you put yourself into a situation where you will make a bad call Try to limit your intake of alcohol If you do decide to drink, choose your best option based on your taste!  This has been Episode 16 of Fit For The Road, recorded on April 28th, 2019 and published April 29th, 2019, for show notes visit fitfortheroad.co.

Put on your mask first!

What are a few ways you can put your mask on first so you can help others around you? Work-life balance Understand that there is no such thing as work-life balance but you can make strides to take care of yourself while you are traveling. It is time to put yourself first! Say no It is OK to say no while you are traveling and on the road. Say no to staying out all night, say no to un-healthy foods, and saying no to anything that gets in between you and your goals. One of the best parts of saying no, you quickly become the inspiration to others!  This has been Episode 13 of Fit For The Road, recorded on April 5th, 2019 and published April 7th 2019, for show notes visit fitfortheroad.co.

Weight Watchers 60 Days In
 “How do you eat an elephant?” The answer? One bite at a time!  Today I talk about the first “bite” I took towards a healthier lifestyle about 60 days ago; I joined Weight Watchers! This episode talks what I have learned over the last 60 days while following the program including the good, the bad, the ugly. Ok maybe not ugly but you get the idea.  Before we get into that, I want to share my weight loss update for 2019. This year, on January 1st, my starting weight was 192, and my body fat was at 25.1%. As of today, my weight is down to 168.6 and my body fat is around 22%. Show Notes Overall I have been super excited with the results of the weight watchers program and I wanted to share with others the things I have learned. Let’s start with the good!  Good Weight Watchers promotes a healthy/steady weight loss Small weekly weigh in victories add up to a lot of noticeable weight loss One bad day doesn't kill your progress The Weight Watchers mobile app is a godsend The app is easy to use Syncs with Apple Health (my health dashboard) There is a huge database of food that you can look up/scan barcodes  Direct link to Connect, Weight Watchers social network focused on a healthy lifestyle Food There is a lot more variety then other weight loss plans especially if you get creative with the 0 point foods! If you want to indulge in your favorite foods you can! Just not every day.  Several low point recipes from the Weight Watchers community on Pinterest, Connect and Instagram Bad I find Weight Watchers is a bit tough to follow when you are forced to eat out You are forced to estimate the ingredients in your meal instead of having exact numbers Pro Tip! Ask for cooking spray whenever possible Too many artificial sweeteners in low point /low-fat foods I have a love-hate relationship with how points are calculated In a smoothie, bananas are 7+ points, if you eat a banana it is 0 I wish I knew the number of calories I intake daily Scanning doesn't take into account 0 point ingredients What will I change in the future? I am going to start double tracking in my fitness pal to see how many calories I am consuming I want to be more active in the community Try to eat more clean foods Hopefully, this 60-day check-in helped you determine if Weight Watchers is the plan for you.
