My New Thing: Precision Nutrition's Lean Eating Program

Hello - This week I started my new "thing." It's called exactly what I said up there in the title and I'm not typing it again. Basically it is a six month program that promises if I do everything they say, I will lose weight and get in better shape. They even claim that every single person who has followed the program without deviating has either reached or surpassed their fitness goals. Okay, well - I'm game.

This was a big commitment for me. It's not some diet I just signed up for and can give up on in a month or so. It is a daily thing where I log in, do a daily workout, learn new habits and stay accountable. There is also the cool benefit of a discussion forum in which I can chat with people all over the globe who are in my PN Lean Eating group with my same coach. I am really enjoying everything thus far.

This week I am learning two habits - Do my daily work outs and take a multivitamin and fish oil. Uh, that is all they're asking of me thus far. So far, no crazy restrictive eating rules and frankly, from what I already know of Precision Nutrition, that is never going to be the case. I mean, I am not going to get an amazing body by eating mac and cheese and Butterfinger Crisps (those things are like CRACK) but there is room for a few treats every week while building a stronger and healthier body by good nutrition and tough workouts. So I am stoked - God, I am old - who says stoked anymore?

So if you are interested in learning more about the program I am embarking on, you can go to and check it out for yourself. I will be taking measurements and my "before" photos this weekend - it's all becoming very real! So wish me luck and check back to see if I am continuing on this path - I happily accept all encouragement!

Have a great evening!
