I'm a Loser

I normally wouldn't do a post like this because I don't like to sound like I'm "selling" something. But, I'm going to go out on a limb and share something that I have been doing that has really changed my life. 

I am just finishing the 5th week of the FASTer Way to Fatloss and I have already lost 12 pounds and 14 3/4 inches overall (and I still have one week to go before the "end" of the program). It's not a diet and there are no special foods or shakes to buy. I heard about it from a friend and researched this program really well before committing.  I read everything on the "official" site, googled and read every article/blog post that I could, and every word I read was a confirmation that this lifestyle is worth getting on board with.

You can be a beginner (like me), you can be advanced (if you already work out) or anywhere in between. You can do this at home (I do!) or in the gym - no equipment has to be bought though! Amanda has another round starting on Monday, June 12 - she only takes a limited number of clients each month - and I'd love to have some friends join me (feel free to mention me when you sign up so we can be in the same group). If you are hesitant like I was, just check out her website (or google her program), read some of the material she has available, and ask me anything! It's the perfect time to start!

Share With Me

For the last few years I have picked my "One Word" that is my focus for the upcoming year, and this year is no different. (I posted about it last only post last year?!) As the year starts to wind down, my mind starts to go to the next "One Word", but  I always start to really think about this after Christmas has passed. My mind does go to a few different options, but by New Year's Eve, I seem to land on the true "One Word".  This is the one I want to emphasize during the next 365 days (and to be honest, none of the words "ends" at the end of the year, they are a permanent part of me even as I focus on a new word).

This year, 2017, I have chosen the word that, for me, is exactly right and perfect in what I want to see and do in the upcoming days and months...SHARE!

Now, there are a few different meanings to the word share, but the manner I am going to focus on this word, is as a transitive verb.  (Huh?)  Going back to my English major days, a transitive verb is one that takes a direct object - meaning it is done to someone or something.  (didn't know you would be getting a grammar lesson today did you?!).  So you have a subject, a verb and then you can answer the question to what/whom?  (Example:  She filled the cup.)

So back to the matter at hand, I am going to focus on sharing with someone or sharing something in the upcoming year.  I want to experience, enjoy, and talk with others!  I want to listen about thoughts, feelings, and experiences of others!  This may even involve more blog entries so that I am "sharing" with you!

If I am scrolling down Facebook and I start reading an article I love, instead of just hitting "like" or "love", I am going to SHARE!  I am going to SHARE my heart, my time, my interests, my skills, my money, my thoughts.  I am going to be sharing with others and hope that others will see my sharing as a chance for them to share their passions and love too!
