Hey, hey! Welcome back to another moment with Shona. First time here? Well let me just say welcome & I’m glad you stopped by!
Last week I spoke about something that I’m currently obsessed with. As I looked back at my “Guess Whose Obsessed” post, I realized a mistake, which is too late to fix now! I meant to post WHO’S not whose! Ugh, such a pet peeve. It was on my picture so I wanted to at least let you know that I know of the error. Anywho, it’s time to share my progress with an intense program called 80 Day Obsession.
Last week has come and gone and I am pretty proud of myself. This fitness program is exactly what I needed to move forward with my nutrition. I needed a major change because I kept gaining weight. I usually only go from 125- 130 Ibs, but I gained up to 144.2 Ibs, which is considered overweight for my height. So I got a chance to see what it’s like to be obsessed with having timed-nutrition last week.
Let me just say that it’s not as easy as it looks! For some, it may be easy as pie, but for someone in my shoes who is not used to timing every meal 2-3 hours and going to bed at a decent hour, man… it’s challenging! But if you know me well enough, you know how I like that extra push to do better. Last week, I was amazed at how easy it was to keep my energy level high throughout the day. I was amazed at how I was crazy busy caring for members of my family that were sick, dining house cleaning (and lots of it), timing the last time I gave someone medicine, oh the list goes on…but yet I never neglected my nutrition nor my workouts. I just set my alarm so I could do everything on my 80 Day Obsession plan.
I kept note of how I was feeling at the end of each workout. I didn’t want to miss a thing, so I simply wrote my thoughts as soon as my workout was over. I’m not only transforming my body, I’m transforming my thoughts! Last week, I cried for the first time ever during a workout. But do you know what I did after the tears were shed? If you guessed moved forward with even more motivation, you’re right!! Now, what are the odds that you really guessed that? Chances are pretty slim lol! I could be way wrong though. But look, that moment right there is when the obsession began! I visualized myself slipping into my wedding gown I wore in 2006. I visualized not craving so much junk food & having a great balance. I pictured my abs looking oh so cut! I’m telling you, my thoughts went soaring high!!
During week 1, there was a terrible tragedy with one of the challengers within the group. Her name was Holly and she was sadly murdered. So, her best friend, who was in the Coach test group informed all of us and we dedicated one of our workouts to Holly. We went on social media and #forHolly. I mad a thread in out test group so people could post their dedication selfie and or videos under her picture. It’s so sad that she couldn’t get to day 80 due to someone being cruel. Please remember her family in your prayers.
I showed up for week 1 and I’m already seeing some results! My backside is tighter, my stomach went down a bit, I feel way lighter & healthier, my detoxing stage has pretty much ended too. I had stomach cramps, headaches, & I was irritable. That’s common when you come off of eating like crap to eating healthy. Thank God that part is over! Whew! I had some major sweet tooth cravings, but I fixed that with some strawberry-banana ice cream that actually went right along with my meal plan! Ha! 5 points for Shona right? Lol! This new week is going to be fantastic! Mark my words. I’m expecting greater things this week 2.
Being obsessed isn’t always a bad thing. This new obsession will encourage so many women whom I’m connected with or who randomly come across my social media. This obsession is about wanting something so badly that you are willing to give up a bad habit of eating candy and junk foods for 80 days! Just think, it only takes 21 days to form a habit. I’m telling you, this transformation is going to be EPIC! Stay tuned my friends… stay tuned.
