Week 1


Current Weight: 236.8 LBS

Weight Lost: 4.6 LBS

This has been a good week. I’ve been challenging how I think about some things. Like the fact that I really don’t need to eat three meals a day to be satiated or healthy. I did intermittent fasting on Wednesday and Sunday. The only thing I consumed before noon other than water was Bulletproof coffee.  I feel fine on these days because I’m trying to get my body to run on my stored body fat rather than carbs which turn into sugar.

I’ve been doing some reading on the ketogenic diet which boils down to eating high healthy fat and low carbs. I haven’t stuck strictly to the diet, I ate some cake at my best friend’s wedding on Sunday. On Monday morning I got up early and got on the yoga mat.

I’m excited about this upcoming week and can’t wait to see what I can do!


Day 1

IMG_0918Here we go!

Today begins The Year of Faith. It’s going to be a long road with a lot of bumps but I know, I have FAITH, that I can do this and get to this day next year a changed person. I’m planning on making a post here every Wednesday with a progress update as well as photos.

W would love for this to reach as many people as possible so maybe my journey could inspire someone else to do something like this. I want people to take control of their life. Living is so much better than merely existing.

I just finished my first workout of The Year and I’m feeling great! I know DDP Yoga works and I want to be one of the next success stories for this great program. If you’ve never heard of DDP Yoga, go online and google it. There have been multiple success stories go viral since the program launched.

Let’s start something here! Keep checking back every week and come with me on this journey.

The Year of Faith

IMG_0860.JPGOn my next birthday I will be 26 years old. I’m going to do something BIG for my birthday. Something I’ve never really done. On my birthday I’m going to commit to changing myself for one whole year. I’m going to call this my Year of Faith.

This is my plan

First: I’m going to totally commit to God and put Him first in all things. I’m going to grow my FAITH in Jesus Christ. This means reading my bible every day and really learning the word. I’m going to need His strength and power to do this. Without Him I’ll never be able to accomplish my goals for this year.

Second: I’m going to commit to doing DDP Yoga every day for one full year. I’m not going to let myself give in to my own laziness and excuses. I know DDP Yoga works. And I know it can do awesome things for my body. I’m going to have FAITH in myself that I can get healthy and stay healthy.

Third: I’m going to commit to being creative every day. This can be through photography or writing or whatever I think of throughout the year. I know I can create something great. I’m going to have FAITH that I can be the creative person I know I can be.

This year will be about living the kind of life I want to live and being the person I want to be. I’m going to keep post here weekly throughout this year to record the highs and lows of this journey as well as take progress photos once a month. I know this will be a challenge and I’m going to want to quit. Satan is not going to like this, but I’m going to finally show him that I’m not his to manipulate anymore. I thank God for this vision He gave me and pray that He will guide me and give me the strength I need to get to October 11 2018 a changed man.
