I’m going to go ahead and put it out there and say last week I was in week 4 of 80 Day Obsession and it was a total FAIL! Not because I ate bad or didn’t want to workout, but I was so sick I was in bed from Tuesday until Sunday! I do not get sick often, but when I do, I am down for the count!
I was doing so well with my workouts and although I got in every workout the week before I got sick, I did not lose a pound. I want to get to a point really quick about what I am saying. Although I did not lose any weight, my body is changing! I am feeling so much stronger and leaner and my little muscles are starting to peek out! I am so excited about this because I know eventually the weight will come off too. I still have 10 lbs to lose to get back to my pre-baby weight!
But over the past week of being sick, I actually lost 5 lbs. Unfortunately, it was not the healthy way, and I know it is already creeping back since I am feeling better. I barely ate anything because my throat was so sore from strep, I could not swallow to save my life. My throat was so swollen, I was spitting in a cup because I couldn’t swallow… TMI sorry!
But, anyways, now that I am better, it is GAME ON!!!!!!!
With my workouts I am doing with 80 Day Obsession, and they are kicking my butt! I am sweating, pushing, and groaning throughout to finish strong! But I also have a huge focus on my nutrition. I have so much experience with fitness and being on my journey that I know you cannot workout a bad diet! So I am drinking my daily superfoods, along with eating meals that are healthy and nutritious!
Tilapia, turkey bacon wrapped brussel sprouts with sweet chili sauce 80 Day Obsession breakdown: 1 1/2 red, 1 green, 1 tsp
Honey Garlic Chicken over brown rice and green beans 80 Day Obsession breakdown: 1 red, 1 yellow, 1 green, 1 tsp
I am so ready and exciting to get back into week 4 and get through Phase 1 so I can catch up to my awesome challengers that are rocking their fitness journey!!!
Here is my meal plan I am using. I made 2 different days worth of meals and will go back and forth throughout the week. For me, eating similar things will help me save time with prepping and money at the grocery store!
If you are looking to start your fitness journey and are wanting a challenge to really focus on nutrition and creating habits with your workouts, please fill out the application below to reserve a spot in my next 80 Day Self Love Challenge where you will get 1:1 motivation, support, accountability, health and nutrition tips, along with lots of positivity and personal growth… because it is so important to work on yourself to love yourself and grow in all aspects of your life!
80 Day Obsession is a step-by-step fitness and nutrition program designed to simultaneously flatten and tone your abs while lifting and firming your butt. It requires laser-focus on 80 challenging workouts spread over 13 weeks, plus an Eating Plan that’s based on the advanced theory of Timed-Nutrition. Each of the 80 workouts is filmed live, so you get a different experience every day. 80 Day Obsession is not easy, but the results are definitely worth it!
What makes 80 Day Obsession so effective?
It’s called 80 Day Obsession because to achieve a body transformation like this in only 80 days, you have to be obsessed with the process. Super Trainer Autumn Calabrese spent a year creating just the right workouts—in just the right sequence— to specifically target your abs and glutes from every angle using a variety of equipment, including weights, Beachbody Resistance Loops, and Beachbody Strength Slides. The workouts will also help tone and tighten your legs, arms, chest, back, and shoulders through intense cardio and resistance workouts. With a different routine each day for 80 days, it’s like having Autumn as your personal trainer right there with you. And because you’re going through the entire program in real time with the cast, you have a built-in support system to make sure you succeed. You’ll keep seeing results, and you’ll never get bored! Like we said, the workouts are intense. They run anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes, with most averaging 45–60 minutes in length. Even though there’s a modifier, you should know how to lift weights with proper form before beginning this program. Beginners may want to start with 21 Day Fix or Autumn’s 5-day program A Little Obsessed and work their way up to 80 Day Obsession.
Autumn also created a Timed-Nutrition Eating Plan to ensure you’re fueling your body at just the right times to burn fat, build muscle, and keep your energy up. You’ll be eating specific types of foods around your workouts to maximize how your body uses those nutrients. But because she incorporates the portion-control containers, the plan is simple to follow when you commit to meal planning and prepping. Just like committing to your workouts, being prepared with your food is key to getting your best results with this program! Autumn introduces you to the concept of modified Refeed Days. Refeed Days are when you increase your carb intake to refuel your muscles and replenish your body, both physically and mentally. The 80 Day Obsession Eating Plan also incorporates Shakeology and Beachbody Performance supplements for best results.
What makes 80 Day Obsession unique?
In a first-ever fitness experience from Beachbody, you get 80 unique workouts that are filmed individually so it’s never the same workout twice. You also get to go behind the scenes with Autumn and the cast as they progress through all 80 days in a documentary-style series called Weekly Obsession, so it feels like you’re truly part of the group. And with Autumn’s experience as a fitness trainer and bikini competitor, you can be sure she knows what she’s doing when it comes to sculpting strong abs and a great butt! Combine those with Autumn’s precise Timed-Nutrition Eating Plan, and you’ve got the recipe for an amazing body.

As I am prepping for my 2nd NPC Figure Competition, I have gained a lot of knowledge, but also more struggles! But what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger right?!? As I started prepping 14 weeks out for my show, I was not fully committed. I was consistent with my workouts, but not with my nutrition… I was letting my emotions and struggles in life get the best of me. But what changed my mind set a few weeks ago was walking into Gold’s gym to my trainer laughing at me saying I might as well drop out of the show… well, like I said before, when you doubt me, I work harder than ever. I am a very competitive person and I do not let ANYONE tell me I cannot do something.
So I had another push.. people around me doubting my potential to succeed in something that was important to me. The tough part was, although I felt it was important, I was not acting upon it. Time to make some changes!
Since then, I’ve been consistent with my workouts with BODY BEAST and INSANITY MAX 30 as my cardio every morning. I also have been incorporating my health shake SHAKEOLOGY that gives me my daily dose of dense nutrition and super foods. Nutrition is 80%, so I knew by staying committed to my nutrition and to my workouts, my results can only improve right?!
Well, here is a look of what 4 weeks of giving 100% to your workouts and nutrition!
Inches gone, back fat gone, love handles gone, and bloating gone!! This momma has more energy, is feeling much more confident 10 weeks out from my 2nd show!! Since this show in Pittsburgh is much bigger than my first, I need to keep this momentum going so I can place!! Yes, I need a LOT of work with my posing! I feel like I lost that, so my practicing starts now and will practice longer!
My MEAL PLAN 10 WEEKS OUT:
MEAL 1- MAN CAKES (without the apple of course) — NO fruit from here on out
MEAL 2- SHAKEOLOGY with 1/2 scoop whey protein (got my extra protein and more nutrition than any meal)
MEAL 3- Grilled Chicken and broccoli, 1 sweet potato
MEAL 4- SHAKEOLOGY w/ 1/2 scoop whey protein, 1/4 cup raw almonds
Afternoon- BODY BEAST– Shoulders, Tri’s 30 min stepper, plyos
Saturday- BODY BEAST– Leg Day, 30 min light cardio incline
Sunday- BODY BEAST– Back and Bi’s 30 min light cardio
Cardio plyos 2nd cardio
So there you have it… Nutrition 80% of your results, Exercise 20%….. Give 100% with both and you will get results!!
Ive learned that no matter what obstacles come in your way, as long as your motive is good enough for YOU, then you will succeed! Do not let anyone tell you you can’t! Keep pushing, keep believing, and keep achieving!!

I love oatmeal, but sometimes its nice to switch up how you make it to change it up a little! I decided to bake it and add some apples, cinnamon and vanilla to it and it tasted amazing!! The kids inhaled it too, so this is a perfect recipe to use that you can make to have a few days worth instead of cooking every day!!
Ingredients: (4 servings)
2 cups uncooked quick oats
1 cup almond milk
1 cup water
2 apples cut into bite size pieces
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Mix all ingredients in a bowl and put into a round baking pan sprayed with Pam.
Cook for 40 min uncovered.
I am using this recipe while I am doing the BODY BEASTprogram.
I also have used this recipe for the 21 day fix and use a yellow and purple container. I do use only water with the recipe for 21 day fix since milk counts as a yellow container.
