HAPPY NEW YEAR FIT FAMILY! Can you believe it is already 2020??? So weird yet so exciting at all the possibilities ahead of us in the new year and decade. Also I'm kind of wondering of flapper dresses will make a comeback!? I kind of dig that idea! 

Let's do a little review of my 2019. I've suffered from my depression coming back. Irregular periods which led me to get checked out with my OB and after blood work, it was confirmed that my hormones have decided to quit on me, so I started hormone therapy for my peri menopause status (at just shy of 38 years old, so sad.) We are working on not only turning my hormones back on but also regulating them. Plus I started taking supplements to help with my adrenals from suspicions that they are not where they should be from my cortisol levels. But...

Hi, I'm Becky the CONSISTENCY QUEEN! I started 2019 at the exact same weight that I ended 2019. Yet, I've been exercising 5x a week on average for the entire year. I've made progress, I've lost some inches, lost some body fat, gained muscle (boy did I gain muscle) I've toned up parts of my body, my clothing fit better, I have more energy, I'm eating completely different than I was even just a couple years ago. I feel pretty good. But...I didn't get the progress I had hoped I would have at this point. 
So let me ask you, with all the negative stuff stacked against you would would you continue to be consistent or do you throw in the towel? To be honest, years ago I would have worked hard for a few weeks, and if I didn't see that scale go down, I would have downed a pint or 2 of Ben and Jerry's and said "I knew it wasn't going to work," or "who cares." When I really had hoped and believed that it would work for me. That this was going to be the time that it actually worked. 

But...guys, for this year it didn't work. I didn't lose weight. But...I had so many positives. STOP LETTING THE LACK OF SOMETHING derail you. HONESTLY isn't it better to have a consistent healthy habit and over time for the progress to come later. See below. This is my change from 2 years and 3 months compared to today. That's progress. Over 2 years! And I didn't gain weight this year, so that's a win. So...in the end. It doesn't freaking matter if your progress is slow. It doesn't matter if it takes you 5 years to lose 20 pounds but "it took Felicia 2 months". BYE FELICIA! Your progress is only dictated by the effort you put into what you do and your consistency. Don't stop your consistency because the scale isn't doing what you want it to. Keep on the consistent behaviors because those will help you in the long run health wise. And isn't that what you want? A healthier life? 

To help you feel better when there is no progress, track your Non Scale Victories. #NSV

Just a few Non scale victories are: clothing feeling looser, you have more energy, your skin looks better, you decided to not to eat the extra large cupcake in the window, you can climb the stairs without feeling winded, you can get up or down to the ground easier, you ran your first 5k, you ran your first 1/2 marathon, you made it through a move in your workout without stopping (oh girl, I celebrated big time when I was able to do the full minute of burpees in 21 Day Fix Cardio, when I could barely do 1 when I started. THAT'S A HUGE ACCOMPLISHMENT!) You made it through an entire workout without stopping or pausing, you did your first pushup on your toes, you did 5 pushups on your toes. You did 20. These are all NSV's and hundreds more! Celebrate these. Give yourself $1 each time you notice a new NSV and girl, you will have extra $$ in no time. 

Let this be the year that you create the healthy consistent habit of daily exercise and eating better. Even if the scale doesn't move. Stay consistent. Let this be the year that you change your life and your daily habits. Progress will come. That's where I come in.

  2. What this will mean is that traceability-exact software programs (like HarvestMark and Red Prairie) isn’t created to control supporting paper paperwork this sort of as get orders, invoices, costs of lading, and so on. The consequence is the equivalent of a jigsaw puzzle that’s lacking a quarter of its items. Sure, you have some items, but you’re lacking just adequate that the image isn’t comprehensive. In the celebration of a foods recall, when time is of the essence, developing to hunt for lacking pieces isn’t acceptable. functional medicine doctor
