Welcome! I'm Sarah

I'm so glad you stopped by!



I hope that you find something useful here and that it's valuable to you. I have a 12 week weight loss program designed to help Mom’s over 30 lose 20+pounds WITHOUT cutting carbs, hours of daily exercise, or BS Supplements; so they can lose the muffin top and feel confident in anything they wear.

Unlike other programs you’ve tried before that require shakes, special meals, or BS supplements just for you; I focus on foods that you can buy at your local grocery store that the whole family can enjoy so that you aren’t spending more money every single month buying & preparing different meals for everyone and are still able to lose weight.

I've always said that things happen for a reason, I believe you are here right now reading this thinking to yourself... "I wish I could lose the weight, but I've failed so many times before it's not even worth the attempt. " You are here because you are meant to be here....otherwise I'm just going to call you nosey.😂


If I told you that you literally have to hit rock bottom to get the best results; what would you say? Probably that I'm crazy.



But you see that's what happened to me. I hit rock bottom one day (literally in one day) and then boom just like that flipped the script and decided that I would lose the weight and love my body again. And I did. This is where a lot of people would be like "The End"; except I'm not a lot of people; I'm me. I had to share my story, I have to share that I know how it feels when you don't want your spouse to see you naked with the lights on. I had to figure out what I needed so that I could continue to mold my body into the one in my dreams, and you can too.



Remember that no one else's rock bottom looks like yours, you're unique, a rare treasure because there is only one you in this whole world.❤️

Get RESULTS in just 12 weeks

Inside of the Fit Ladies Movement we focus on:

-NUTRITION-

You need something that doesn’t cause more havoc in your already busy life.

That means meals that the whole family can and will enjoy eating.

When you do this right, you’ll never be standing at the refrigerator wondering what’s for dinner every single day.

The way I teach you the Anti Diet Plan makes it easy to adapt into your life and still get to enjoy those GNO’s (Girl’s Night Out) without all of the guilt.

-EXERCISE-

You need a solid exercise plan that gets results without hours of work. Most coaches want you to exercise 1-2 times a day 5-7 days a week. They’re also promoting TONS of Cardio, which just isn’t necessary for weight loss.

Using specifically tailored exercises, I create an effective and compact workout that only takes about 30 minutes 3 times a week.

-M.A.G. METHOD-

You need to utilize the M.A.G. Method.

Coaches typically never bother to address the mindset, accountability,& gratitude piece that has literally caused you to fail time and time again.

By bringing your mindset in line with your goals I’m able to keep you accountable to help you FINALLY achieve the things you only dreamed of actually happening.

I help you focus on gratitude of not just your weight loss journey but your whole life, so that you become the woman with confidence whether with your spouse, out by yourself, or with your kids.

Alcohol is NOT your friend

Nutrition
October 26, 20224 min read

I have to kick off this post by saying that I’m not judging anyone for drinking. Heck, I have cocktails as a planned indulgence, too.  So let’s be clear that this is not a “do as I say, not as I do” situation. I just want to share some information about alcohol and weight loss so you can make an informed choice.

 

I will never tell any of my clients that they should “never” drink alcohol again. Hey, if it’s your birthday and you want to have some wine, go ahead!


But truthfully, regular consumption of alcohol may slow down your weight-loss progress. If you’re used to having a glass of wine at dinner each night, you can probably forget about losing those 10 lbs. before your niece’s wedding next month. Why? Read on for 3 reasons alcohol is not your weight-loss friend.


Reason #1: It’s Basically Poison


Here’s the thing: when you drink alcohol, your body uses it as a "priority fuel" until all of it has been removed from your body.  What?  It's like a poison your body wants to expel as quickly as possible. So when you consume adult beverages, rather than metabolizing fat, your liver goes into full-on “get rid of the poison” mode. This means that when you have a drink, your fat-burning furnace is shut off for about 6-8 hours while your liver burns out the alcohol.


You read that right: I said a drink. As in, one drink. 


Logically, if you take the number of drinks you normally drink in a week and have all of them on Saturday and Sunday, your fat loss would be better (note: we’re talking about fat loss NOT drunkenness) if all other things are equal. Instead of your fat-burning furnace being turned off 6-8 hours per day, it may be turned off for 12-16 hours over the weekend.


So mathematically it makes sense. But if you’re drinking that much at once, can all other things really be equal? 


Reason #2: Junk Food


One late night I ended up in the back of a taxi after drinking. Where do you think I was? I was in the drive-thru at Jack-In-The-Box laughing hysterically and demanding to talk to Jack because I had something very important to say. I'm sure I was a sight to behold.


While I was there, I also ordered three monster tacos and French fries. That is why alcohol is not your friend! It's true - alcohol can stimulate your appetite and cause you to eat way too many calories of junk food.


We’ve all had those mornings where we wake up and walk into the kitchen only to find fast food wrappers scattered all over the counter. “Oh, no I didn’t!” is usually the first thought. Who ever went on a drunken fast-food binge and felt happy when they remembered what they had done the next morning? No one!


When you drink, your food inhibitions are washed away in a sea of alcohol. You’re just not going to make good food choices, period. End of story. If there’s a little part of your brain that likes junk food but you don’t let yourself have it normally, as soon as the alcohol kicks in, that’s where you lose your inhibitions.


One of my mottos is: Eat your French fries when you’re sober so you can truly enjoy them and remember the experience. 


Reason #3: Coyote Ugly


Pretty self-explanatory.


If you’re not willing to give up your alcohol, having 1-2 drinks a couple times a week probably isn’t going to throw off your healthy living and weight loss goals. I’m not a huge fan of regular drinking while attempting to lose weight, but the truth is, after my first month of weight loss, I started enjoying a few adult beverages (vodka soda with a lemon wedge) on the weekend and I still lost weight and got to goal.


If you are going to imbibe while trying to lose weight, make sure to avoid any cocktails with calorie-laden mixers.  A pina colada can send the scale skyrocketing.  A good rule of thumb is if it has an umbrella in it, you won't look good in a bikini.  Keep the alcohol on the rocks or mixed with soda water and a fresh lime or lemon wedge.
