Yesterday marked the last workout of Phase 1 with 80 Day Obsession with Autumn Calabrese and I must say, there are so many things I love about this program!
I love that it is more like the workouts I would do at a gym, except Autumn thinks of exercises that I wouldn’t have thought of to really focus in on your booty, arms, and abs!
Being 12 weeks post-partum, I was not sure how my body would handle this program, but each and every day I am feeling stronger and stronger!
Although at first I was not too excited about my results, I thought more about it and realized I have made a lot of changes! 3 lbs and 4 inches down for good, but the energy I am gaining and how strong I feel, and the fact that I’m finally getting consistent with my workouts and nutrition is my biggest victory so far!
These workouts are by no means easy, in fact, they have been extremely challenging for me and my body is sore every day, but it hurts so good! Each day, my post workout meal consists of our Beachbody Performance Recover, along with Shakeology which is full of superfoods! This shake was orange recover and vegan vanilla Shakeology which is more plant based protein, rather than form animal protein! It helps so much with muscle recovery!
The timed nutrition has been a little bit of a struggle since I’m still working on my time management, but I’m excited that I am making healthier choices and my meals have been fun and not boring, which makes it easier to keep going!
One meal I made this week was a healthier version of nachos. If you know me, you know I am slightly obsessed with loaded nachos! So I took some bell peppers, cooked up chicken in the Instant pot for 10 minutes with chicken broth and chili seasoning, and shredded the chicken over the peppers with black beans and baked it for 10 minutes! Topped with a little shredded cheese , taco sauce, and plain greek yogurt as my sour cream, I got myself a good meal!
I am so excited to see what Phase 2 brings this post-partum mom bod of mine!! I am so excited to share my fitness journey, not just for my own accountability, but also to show other mamas what is possible!! I know as mommas, we are busy, but also we are trying to adjust to this new lifestyle and caring for a new baby, but it is so important to take care of us too! It is crazy to think how much better we feel when we give our bodies a little tender, loving, care!
