Clickstop employees have goals. We talk about our goals with each other, with our managers, with our families every day. We work on them, evolve them, and basically make it happen. I know if you went up to each individual in the company and asked them what their goals were, they would at least have one to tell you, whether it was personal or professional. Lots of time, they overlap. We love looking to the future and setting ourselves up for success in everything we do.
Recently, a few different people have pointed out one of our employees that has set a huge personal goal and is totally killing it. That person is Amber Singer. Amber started at Clickstop in August of 2016. She works in the manufacturing department and is one of those people who has a contagious attitude. She is always smiling, always has kind words to say to everyone, and is just a great person to be around. Amber’s number one goal at Clickstop is to continue to grow. In manufacturing she has started cross training and loves building new skills and relationships with her co-workers. Amber’s goal in her personal life is to develop a permanent healthy lifestyle. And again… she is killing it.
“I was tired of striving, I wanted to start thriving! I thought there had to be a better way to get in shape and not be hungry all the time.” said Amber.
“I was exhausted. I am only 31 years old, how can people do anything feeling exhausted all the time? I worked out, counted my calories, and ate what I thought was healthy but I wasn’t losing weight, I was a yo-yo! One day, the first shift manufacturing manager Jeremy told me about “Wheat Belly”. I did some research and everything I found just clicked. I felt it all applied to me. By the first week I was sold. I cut out bread, then corn, high fructose corn syrup, and grains. I can honestly say I feel so much better. The good out weighs the bad. I am so happy to say I have lost 19.5 lbs and I have more energy. I am motivated to keep going and I am NOT looking back. I finally have hope!”
If you see Amber in the bistro, she is preparing herself a healthy meal. You also can find her pretty much daily in the gym, putting miles on the elliptical trainer and the treadmills. She has set her goals and she is sticking to reaching them.
“My overall goal was to shed 10 lbs a month. I am not beating myself up about how fast this takes. I started this diet on April 4th, so I am pretty pumped about my progress.”
For a lot of people, the most difficult part about setting weight goals is keeping motivated to do the work. For amber, trying on her old clothes and seeing the progress helps. She also likes to change up her exercise routine to keep things fresh. Since it is getting so nice out, you can find her going on walks, or on the less nice days, swimming at the YMCA. But one of the best motivators is having a gym right at Clickstop. She finds support in her co-workers as they are working out along side her.
“Clickstop has been so supportive. From my co-workers to the fitness center, and the healthy choices in the bistro. The fresh fruit is amazing!”
Amber wants to let everyone know that if you are thinking about making a lifestyle change such as this, you can do it! She suggest setting small goals that help you reach your larger goal. And to remember to Expect Greatness in Yourself and Inspire it in Others.
“I want others to thrive and enjoy what they’re doing. Know that there is greatness in all of us, whether we are working out together or just working as a team at Clickstop! We all have greatness in us, we just need to believe it!”
