80 Day Obession

The BEACHBAR is here!

Team Beachbody’s first ever SNACK BAR!!

I am so excited for this!!! Mainly because there are times when we ALLLL want to reach for that quick snack on the go, the kind you can keep in your desk or throw in your purse or grab when you’re already 10 minutes late! But unfortunately the options are limited. You know the integrity behind Shakeology, our performance line, even the “kiddos” shake Daily Sunshine, and these bars are no different.

Coming in TWO delicious flavors: Chocolate Cherry Almond and Peanut Butter Chocolate!

 

 
Why get some for yourself? 
  • This crunchy, chewy snack bar as 10g of protein, 4g of fiber, just 150 calories, and only 5-6g of sugar. CALORIE for CALORIE, BEACHBAR has a higher proportion of satisfying protein per calorie compared to four other leading snack bars. (you’ll see that in a bit!)
  • Exceptional protein to sugar ratio! Both flavors of BEACHBAR are made with whey protein crips, versus some other leading brands which are made with a fruit base. This means BEACHBAR delivers more satisfying, muscle-promoting protein than actual sugar per bar.
  • Research Shows taste is the #1 decision making factor in choosing a bar and BEACHBAR delivers. Packed with nut pieces and nut butters, crunchy protein crisps, dried fruit, and real chocolate chips. Yeah, my mouth is already watering.
  • It’s ALSO going to fit into our container counts!!! That’s right! If you are a portion fix follower, one bar will count as 1/2 red, 1/2 yellow, 1tsp. SO that means I’ll be having 2 at once! (LOL!)
  • BOTH flavors are GLUTEN FREE, have 0g TRANS FAT, and no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives.
How does the BEACHBAR compare to other bars? My MAIN question actually! Because I was just scoping out bars yesterday at a sports store and saw SO MANY! Like SO MANY! This blew my mind.
  • Calorie for calorie, BEACHBAR has a higher proportion of satisfying protein and fiber per calorie and a lower proportion of sugar per calorie than four other leading snack bars.

What does this mean?

It means that you are getting a delicious, satisfying snack bar with less sugar than protein AND 4g of fiber!!! #score

See how it stacks up to other popular bars! This is what BLEW MY MIND! 

The Glycemic Index (GI) measures the effect of a food on blood glucose. The BEACHBAR is LOW glycemic! Low-GI foods release their carbs slowly, causing a lower blood glucose response. This helps avoid a large spike in blood sugar and the “crash”, or dip in blood glucose that often follows and may cause you to feel sluggish.
 
How much will they cost?

The one box option: $39.80 (customer price) and $29.85 (coach discount price)! That comes to ABOUT $2 a bar with the discount WHICH was about what I would’ve paid at the store yesterday (less than some actually) and I’ll be getting them ALL AT ONCE to use whenever I want.


 

The two box option:

2 boxes of your choice of flavor for $79.60 (customer price) OR $59.70 (coach discount price)! Again, when I crunch the numbers, it comes to $1.99 with the discounted price. I keep thinking about CONVENIENCE and QUALITY over everything!

 

Three box option:

3 boxes of your choice of flavor for $119.40 (customer price) OR $89.55 (coach discount price)! Where my families at? We will be going with the three box option! I personally want this incorporated into my daily routine, my boyfriend works LONG hours so he’ll be taking 2+ with him to work and his son is with us almost 50% of the time (especially come summer) and this will be great for him when he’s wanting something quick for a snack! Same price per bar with this price!

80 Day Obession

Meet Me Halfway

I am absolutely blown away.

I’m not kidding when I say it’s hard for me to put this experience into words and we’re only just now reaching the halfway point. I think my facial expressions from day one to now say it all.

There’s so much power in saying I will and then you do. I would not have made it this far though without my group of incredible ladies doing this program with me! I’m asked a lot how I stay motivated and that’s how. I used to HATE going to basketball practices, but my team would be there and they gave me a reason to show up. Same thing with this kinda. Growth and change are never really that easy, but they’re worth it. SO having a group around you that inspires you to SHOW up makes it a heck of a lot easier. A group that you can tune into when it’s convenient for you (PS) because it’s on an APP!

Because yes, at first when you are trying to implement new actions and new habits, that first starts with your brain telling you to do it. And if your brain isn’t used to it or comfortable, it’ll immediately feel FEAR. But that’s just the natural thing for our brain to do. Say warning — go the other way. DANGER! When in reality, staying the same is the dangerous way to live. If you can prepare yourself for that and fight through it with the help of other girls going through the same (and ME), those uncomfortable actions begin to feel normal.

That’s what’s happening here.

We didn’t just commit to that for a week or 2. In fact, I think now that makes it SO HARD. Dive in and give it your all for 80 days. And I guarantee there will be less “starting over” going on. At least that’s how I’ve been feeling.

I was talking to a girl today who is seeing insane results, she’s stuck with this longer than anything before and she’s like UMMM what’re we gonna do when this is over? I was like DUHH keep going!!! haha!

SO let me share some logistics. Because I’m speechless over the results. And people have even been hating on our trainer saying there’s just no way, and truthfully, that may just be because you’ve never seen the results I’ve seen or the random girl you’re stalking on Instagram because YOU’RE NOT ME. Or her. We’ve stayed really focused on running our own race because the race itsself has been the best part.

The eating.

I don’t know if you remember or not, but I was pretty terrified of this eating plan. I heard the word “timed” and thought “NOPE, NO WAY!” and I soon realized this was going to FREE me. I think the WHOLE REASON so many of us struggle, I know it’s why I did for so long, is it’s just EASIER in the moment to grab fast food. To make the quickest choice. To just fly by the seat of your pants. And it doesn’t mean you’re in food jail if you create some kind of plan and follow it except this one’s already made for you so it’s EVEN EASIER! “Timed” really just means — “hey you need to be eating about every 2-3 hours to help your body build a faster metabolism and feel it’s best.”

OK!

But for example, I already know every single day what foods I’ll be eating at what times and what combinations of things. And it’s not rocket science (thank god)! I don’t have to sit at the dinner table and count any calories or macros, micros, it’s already done for me. I go by colors. That’s right. COLORS which are assigned to food groups that are portioned out. But the game changer is — I don’t even have to arrange those colors throughout the day. Basically trying to figure out when to eat vegetables and when to eat my carbs is DONE for me. SO all we do is know what’s coming and have it available.

I follow nothing fancy. And after a WEEK I was in a groove. I remember always trying to just “eat every 2-3 hours” and I would.. I’d eat the worst food ever haha! This makes my life EASIER even though I thought it was going to ruin it LOL! I went to my friend’s last night to babysit and I just took food with me. I knew what I’d eat when and I thought like …. “WOW! I didn’t have to like stress about ordering take out or like wonder when I’d eat..” I just KNEW. There has been so much freedom in this discipline. Also within that plan is an already made up blend of superfoods, veggies, proteins, pre and probiotics, vitamins, minerals, so that’s one less meal I “make”! OH AND it’s chocolate.

The workouts.

These are tough. I won’t lie. And if you’ve been following along on my Insta stories, you better not be thinking… “there’s no way”! Girl. There is. First off you’re seeing me in the middle when you’d start at day one just like me. This program is designed to progress as YOU get stronger. And trust me, you will.

They are different every day with certain focused ones like booty day, legs, cardio, but ALL so very entertaining. I love that I am really feeling like I’m at a personal training session but just in my living room. I really, really never looked forward to a workout. I just looked at it like I need to do this because it does make me feel good. But now the workout is one of my favorite parts of my day. Never thought I’d say that but it’s true.

We’re utilizing specific equipment that’s so chill. I’m not talking a bowflex. I’m talking like colorful loops that will be the best and worst enemy of your tush.

Not stopping now.

I’m really excited to just keep going. Because this really is so much more than a physical process. I feel very connected to myself. And that might seem kinda cliche, but I think it’s just when you don’t feel like you NEED something external to make you feel good internally.

It’s never too late to join us. I’ll be opening up another group like the one I described to get ready for summer! Don’t wait. If you’ve been wondering, just get in touch. Because I told my BF today how GLAD I am that I jumped on this when I did. I’d be so mad at myself if I wouldn’t have just dove in totally freaked out and scared because it’s made the journey that much more rewarding and I’ve learned more for it.

I look forward to chatting!

80 Day Obession

It’s only week two?!

…..Because I can’t believe how far we’ve come ALREADY!

Just completed week 2 and it’s definitely getting easier. Which is crazy because week 2 was always the toughest for me but I actually really listened to my body and bumped up an eating bracket. I’m eating MORE and losing MORE. Interesting how I always thought to lose the weight or inches, I needed to be eating less. Once again, this program proves that wrong. Oh and I’m up a pound, but I am NOT stressing about that. Mainly because I’ve lost 2.5 inches JUST off my waist. So I’ll take going up a pound.

That’s the thing. You have to decide if the scale will rule your life. It really never has for me, and I believe that’s why I’ve seen consistent success.


This program has begun a revolution! I heard from the creator herself, Autumn Calabrese, that DAILY around 200,000 people are logging into our fitness app and COMPLETING these workouts. This is bigger than some inches lost and a booty being lifted (although, I’m not mad about that) haha! This is about a community coming together in a BIG way. I’ve been doing this for almost 3 years and I’ve never seen this many people start and still be here finishing up week 2. Why? Well it somewhere along the line in those moments of instant gratification becomes easier to quit on yourself. To just give up. But in reality, that’s not the easy decision. That’s the one that sets you up for tougher ones later. Instead we’ve all come together and decided we’re going to do this to the best of our abilities. Which DOES look different for everyone. This program wasn’t designed JUST for someone looking to tone, but also for someone who has A MASSIVE transformation to under go and I’m seeing it happen right before my eyes. This was created for anyone who wants to work on having a positive attitude through it all. HENCE why so many people are seeing results and sticking around.

In our community, especially so far, we are leaving the complaining at the door. We are leaving the scarcity mindset behind us. We are staying focused on what we’re gaining from this newfound discipline we’re all slowly but surely creating. From this POWER we’re feeling when we do something we never thought possible, or because we are making it through the day focused on the good instead of the bad. We are cheering each other on and celebrating BIG wins! But also creating a space for you to come and be REAL. I’ve done it, my girls have done it. It’s not to say this is easy. But what worth having is? Remember how I said it may seem easier to just throw in the towel? It’s def not. It’s easier to just give yourself grace, show up and keep going. Excuses only make things HARDER.

More from the group!!!

A post I shared today:

“I want you guys to know how excited I am for you that you’re doing this long, challenging program! Here’s why!

That was me like 3 years ago far left! I had just completed my 2nd 21 day fix extreme workout and was DEAD! But I felt SO GOOOOOD in that picture I remember. I was so proud of myself for DOING IT!!!!! And over the last 3 years, I have found INSANE results with ALL of these programs. MAINLY shakeology! It’s why I never put the 35-40 pounds back on. But I WOULD go up and down a lot. I’d either be in or out. And it would be frustrating at times. I’m not 80/20 ing this program, yet I’m finding BALANCE 😭 and freedom 🙌🏼

And fitness, health, your body, it all takes TIME! And that’s what I want you to see here.
USE IT WISELY with 80 day obsession. Because even tho these photos are years apart, I feel had I committed to something like this then, it would’ve been a game changer in SO MANY WAYS! What you

’re doing right now is setting you up for the rest of your life. Because come April when we’re done, this will just BE your way of life.
Here I am now tho in a bod

y I’ll be honest I’m SO MF PROUD OF!!!!!! This is about progress guys. Always doing better. ENJOYING THE RIDE! You will never be happy if you’re here f

or punishment or because u resent urself. Trust the process, eat, drink ur shakeology and just do your best 💕

Second pic is week 1 to now. I bumped up a bracket and lost 2 1/2 inches in my waist. But went up a pound 😉. I’ve never focused on that and I’m not gonna now! It’s all in the inches!!

I hope you see we all start somewhere. And your results are a direct reflection of showing up with hard work and effort + time = L O V E”

MORE WINS!


I am changing the way I look at life. I feel more present, positive, more proud. I’m really not stressed out about what I’m going to be eating next or how crappy the pizza and beer I had all weekend is making me feel. You may be thinking that a “plan” of any kind is stressful for food. Or at least I used to. Totally not the case. If anything, this is the easiest plan I’ve ever followed. The portion containers stay in the same arrangement ALL DAY. So that doesn’t mean I eat the same things, I just always know what I need to eat. It makes it easy to plan ahead, to switch up the grub. Also when eating out it’s great too. This isn’t about like not having butter or never eating a carb. It’s just all about portioning it out. I went out to eat this last week and had cod, roasted veggies, and potatoes. And ya know, it fit perfectly into my final meal. I didn’t need all the extras we sometimes think we need when we’re out to eat. I felt more engaged in the convo, more comfortable after my meal. Sometimes when I’d eat out, I’d eat so MUCH that I was legit ready to peace out after eating because I felt sick and uncomfortable. We stayed and talked for 2 more hours!!!


I’m excited to coach the next wave of girls! I’ve learned a lot so far! It’s incredible to not only be working on your best self, but doing it with others who are trying too! We are a force!

80 Day Obession

Learning, loving and letting go!

What an exciting, yet trying, first week!

I am learning a lot about my body. The first few days especially I felt very tired, groggy, my head was hurting. You might be thinking, “lol some plan…” but that’s where you’re wrong. I was eating SO badly, that my body felt shell shocked by the whole foods and nutrition and the way harder workouts and new timed eating. So while it was tough, I actually really enjoyed listening to myself and my needs. I got more sleep, drank more water and let myself heal and gain strength. Feeling like a million bucks now!

Also learning about the amount of food it actually takes to be fueled, burn fat, build muscle and gain strength. I am in a group with the creator of the program and about 40K more people. All in which are on totally different journeys but very shocked by the amount of food, their reactions (bloated and gassy) and how they’re not immediately dropping weight. The bloat and gas is again just your body adjusting to the foods and the stress from the workouts. WHICH gets better. But yes, one or two meals a day isn’t going to help you shed that unwanted weight or tone those certain areas. There’s a lot of fitness in that too, but it is mainly nutrition. Our bodies are like pretty badass and they need a lot to stay on top of their game to begin BURNING and BUILDING!


OMG I am loving the energy behind this program. It had one of the biggest launches our company has ever seen. And my personal group has about 50 people in it including some of the coaches on my team. We have a wellness group with about 300 people in it. But more than the numbers who are there, people are SHOWING UP in a big way. Sharing their journey, doing the hard and uncomfortable and it’s inspiring! Honestly, I used to do some classes with some friends back in college but we were only together for 30 mins to an hour. SO what about the rest of the day when you’re on your plan and trying to do your best? THAT is why staying plugged in on our phones in an app is so great! Checking in whenever for support and love.

Also loving the freedom I am feeling from the discipline! I’ve been utilizing the color coded portion containers for a few years now. And man did they change the game for me, but this took it to a whole new level. Specific meals (color combinations) at specific times of day that work into your schedule. At first we were ALL like that seems kinda scary. How the HECK will we do that? One week in and I’m like YES! The container combos are the same, but your meals don’t have to be. You can mix and match each food group. BUT it’s super easy to learn what to eat when. By day 5 I had my meals memorized and I just knew what to eat when. There was total freedom in that. It feels structured, sure… but wouldn’t you rather just be told what to eat to see the best results possible then have more work in weighing things, figuring out what goes where?

Plus adding in my superfoods smoothie doesn’t suck. It’s chocolate and it’s meal plan approved. It’s actually required because your results depend on it! It’s saving me time and money each week. The amount that the ingredients in just ONE smoothie costs is like $84+ dollars because of the vitamins, minerals, pre and pro biotics, superfoods from across the world. And I’m totally rocking it for $4 a day!


I am letting go of the finish line. I was actually chatting with a bff of mine doing this program too and we chatted about the no booze factor because we decided to REALLY follow this thing and see it through it’s entirety. Really testing the program (being that we’re some of the first ones) and testing ourselves by seeing JUST what we’re made of. I’ve done that before with a 3-4 week program but never something that’s going to span over 3 months. When this was coming out, I had myself convinced there was literally NO WAY. But I’ve found a lot of strength in just trusting a day by day mindset.

Of course there will be testing times when you’re working towards such big goals, but that’s why they’re BIG goals. It’s actually freeing when you just decide this is the way it is and that’s IT. When you give yourself that wiggle room, it makes it harder I think. And that’s why I failed so many times. I know some of this isn’t forever, but right now in my mind – it is. I’m not letting myself go towards what I’m not having, not getting. But instead what I am gaining, what I get to experience through this. I went from stuffing my face every day with cookies, chips and beer to just NOT. And it’s been a lot easier because of that thought process.

I just took some week 1 progress pics to see where I’m at and seriously SOOO excited at how subtle the changes are. Which I must admit is totally not like me. But there’s something about what I’m going through that’s making me want to WORK for it. I’m excited for this process because I believe it’ll bring an even greater reward. And when you’re working towards that thing that scares you, that you’ve never done, or that major change, it’s tough to see it over night or in just one week. But as the weeks compound, MY GOSH I think we’re all going to be shocked.

A little clean eating can go a long way!
I felt so much more relaxed standing there!

I’ll be taking photos all throughout this journey. I’m even going to take more “befores” at the end of week 1 (right now). Because there is a LOT of growth to be had. My coach told me to go for my dream body and I am DOING that! It’s not going to just show in “losses” either. ❤ Share with me your thoughts!

Thanks babes!

80 Day Obession

Here we go!

It’s the weekend prior and I gotta tell ya, I am feeling the butterflies. Mainly because I’m making the mistake of seeing it as a lump sum of 80 days.

Yes. That’s how long this program is going to run.

And no. I’ve never done something this long with the attitude that I’m going all the way!

Meaning that I’m going all in. I’ve really learned that you have to give yourself that discipline to see the results you want. And if you don’t, you have to understand the outcomes will be different. SO your actions have to match your expectations and my expectations are high. 

I really want to get in peak physical condition because I never have. I’ve never gone down a road this strenuous and tough. Most of my journey up until now has been weight loss focused from falling off track or getting to this place in the first place losing 35+ pounds collectively. But my goals with this are to not only lose what doesn’t need to be there but instead gain. Gain the strongest perspective I’ve ever had along with one strong booty. Yup this program is abs and booty focused and I’m going to be loving the sculpting aspect.

The nutrition feels a little scary. Full disclosure, I’ve never successfully meal prepped 2+ weeks in a row. Most programs I’ve been successful with were a month tops and while I learned A TON that I worked into my daily life and routine, I still never felt something just become part of habit. I know if I want to be successful in these 80 days, those habits are going to HAVE to be formed. And then without even realizing it, they’ll continue because over that time I really took the time to develop my routine.

DEVELOP being another key word.

I’m working with myself and my challengers to really keep us focused on who and what we’re developing with this. It’s going to be a process. There will be no instant rewards. But even better than that, those small wins over that period of time will be the most fun to celebrate. I want to develop myself through this. My mindset, my work ethic, my perspective. I want to be sharper, more focused, more everything while keeping my health in the center.

That was actually the original purpose behind this – to become obsessed with your health. And it’s not just as cut and dry as workouts and food, but also getting more sleep, improving my relationships, growing my business, doing big things!!! It’s OK to be obsessed with taking care of yourself. I’m actually uncertain right now why we all aren’t, all the time?

If you think about it we only get one of these lives. And I hate to go there, to the deep stuff. But it’s true.

Every time I get ready to make some big shifts, I really put myself in that place. I remind myself what really matters, what you really need to be happy and how important being your best self is for everyone else around you. It’s so easy to just give, give, give to others and think we’re doing the right thing but only if we’re first filling our cup and have something to give.


YALL! It’s the afternoon of day one and before I posted I just wanted to add a little reflection on what it’s been like so far.

This morning came kinda ROUGH! I didn’t get up at the time I planned, I’m not used to eating right before a workout, and I started to get all anxious. So I made a little video log for you!! (In video – what I meant is I don’t recommend NOT eating before a workout)

My nutrition has been DELISH! I’m excited to share more at the end of the week how it’s been to continue with it. I wanted to go this full week and work out any kinks I saw to share a meal plan with you!!! But knowing exactly what color containers to eat when is so far freeing.

I’m excited. Focused. Little scared. But overall grateful.

I woke up today. And I had the opportunity to really become BETTER today. That’s more than I can ask for.
