If you asked me if I ate healthy, I would say of course but as I evaluated my food I was eating I knew I could do better.
My love and I started eating Gluten Free in February 2014 due to feeling blah after eating food with wheat in it. 🌾 He has a wheat sensitivity, my mom has celiacs and I was breaking out on my arms with a rash. We went cold turkey. Man, do I miss a good toasted flour tortilla with Ooey Gooey cheese in it though!
In March 2015, I started the program BeachBody, 21 Day Fix to keep me in check with portion control and working out. I continued to eat sensible but slacked off in the workouts after a little while. I did find new workouts on BeachBody on Demand and again got into a rhythm.
Sometime in 2017, I started removing foods that made me feel icky or gave me headaches. Red meat, eggs, mushrooms, and tomatoes (I do eat on occasion but the acid in them is bad). So there went my most favorite breakfast, chorizo and eggs and of course spinach and mushroom omelettes.. 🙁
In the Summer of 2017, BeachBody announced a new program was coming 80 Day Obsession! So we eat a balanced diet that is portion controlled on a timed nutrition plan and workout for 80 days, we didn’t count Sundays. Those were self-care day, massages, foam roll, stretch, epsom salt baths. I began with a the sneak peak of A Little Obsessed before Thanksgiving 2017.
January 15, 2018, I began the full program of 80 Day Obsession, it was a Monday holiday for me so perfect day to start. We had taken measurements, photos and meal prepped the day before so I was all set for success!
Phase 1 ended, February 11, 2018.
Phase 2 ended, March 11, 2018.
Phase 3 is over and we are in what they’ve named as Peak Week which will complete the full program. Such a happy sad moment. 🙂🙁
I have felt great, eat the correct food on time and workout each day, minus one day in Chicago when I happened to do over 20,000 steps and was exhausted from travel that day. And come on deep dish stuffed pizza was a must!
My next journey will be an allergy test and 80 Day Obsession results.
