Helloooo! Long time no talk. I was thinking about doing a new blog but really picking this one back up makes more sense.
This week I started a new Beachbody program! In the past I have completed 21 Day Fix a few times with pretty decent results. I always thought it was too short though. Like I would power through the 21 Days but then be back to old habit shortly after.
When one of my old Tahoe life friends posted about the Beachbody 80 Day Obsession program with my favorite Beachbody coach Autumn Calabrese, I said count me in!
Perfect timing because we are going to Hawaii in close to 80 days so good goal to shoot for bikini ready Hawaii! Yay.
So this program is fairly intense. Most workouts are about one hour long and will become more challenging over each phase of the program. The entire program also focuses on timed nutrition and using the colored containers from 21 Day Fix. I’m in Eating Plan B. This means I get 1500-1799 calories per day.
The program also uses macros but in a way that makes sense to me via color coded portion sized plastic containers. In Eating Plan B you get 4 green (vegetables), 3 purple (fruits), 4 red (proteins), 3 yellow (carbs), 1 blue (healthy fat), 1 orange (seeds and dressings), 4 teaspoons (oils and nut butters).
The times nutrition with workout blocks requires a little bit of planning so we set up our calendars and excel spreadsheets. I also setup timers on my phone to remind me when to eat, take supplements and workout!
Day one workout was Total Body Core. We used weights and loops for resistance. This is me doing my bridge pulses with a blue loop. Blue is the most difficult.
Day two was Booty! Once again loops were the star. This workout was low on cardio but heavy on the resistance butt exercises. My dog was really interested in why I was lying on the floor and wanted to play.
Day three brought Cardio Core and we tested out the sliders! It’s kind of fun but also great on the abs!
Day four was a doozy with AAA – basically you work the reverse or negative. For example you do a upright row fast up and then count 1, 2, 3 down. This was probably my harder workout.
Day 5 was legs day and day 6 was Cardio Flow. Autumn decided to bring out the entire zoo for this workout. We were doing frog 🐸 jumps, gorilla 🦍 dips, Bear 🐻 crawls – it was insane! I hope I improve on those moves!
Bonus: Two of my favorite Beachbody approved snacks.

Glad to have week one inthe books!
