What a feeling to complete something like this! When I first learned about 80 Day Obsession I was thinking to myself "No way! I am such a free spirit... there is no way I can follow something this structured!" But here is what I found! First off, if I am such a free spirit, who am I to tell myself I can't do something?! So, I committed. Then the crazy part happened: It.was.easy!
What seemed so scary and big and complex at first ended up being absolutely doable once I stopped fighting myself over it! Once I allowed myself to just DO and not overthink it. The plan is laid out, there is no guesswork, I run everything else in my life but with 80 Day Obsession I just handed over the reigns and did as I was told and it took a HUGE burden off my shoulders. It was that one thing that I didn't have to worry about.
It was so awesome to see how fast your body adapts when you challenge it and treat it right.
In these 4 short weeks (they FLEW by) I I noticed the following changes:
- I have gotten way stronger
- I upped my weights
- My skin got better
- lost 8 pounds
- build some solid muscle!
- saved *drumrollplease* 213.51$ by eating according to plan. (Yes, I got an app and documented every time I would have for sure grabbed that thing at the gas station, ordered that pizza, or would have gotten that little nicknack at the grocery store). Over 200!!! How freaking crazy is that? Mind you, we are not a family that eats out so I can only imagine what those savings would look like if we did....
- been feeling overall pretty badass
- have grown amazing connections with my fellow 80DO crushers!
Matter of fact, the group I am in for this has made all the difference to me. My newsfeed is literally swamped with people on the same journey, doing the same thing and I LOVE IT!! Talk about being obsessed. What BETTER thing to be obsessed about than your health?! They have inspired, motivated and dropped that real talk along the way which made the last 4 weeks fun, emotional at times and downright kickass. Something about being surrounded by people with the same goals and drive... it pulls you! You just have to allow yourself to commit, then let go, and go with the flow of your fellow goal crushers!
Before I go, let me show you some more of those phase 1 results so you can decide if you want to start getting your own!
Want a more detailed review of phase 1? Earmuffs on! Potty mouth as usual!
