Transformation Tuesday 80 Day Obsession

The rest of the workouts flew by. We did a lot of zoom calls on Saturday mornings to do our cardio flow workouts together. They are SO much better with friends.

After 80 Days, I learned to prioritize sleep and practice self-care. I fell in love with my foam roller and stretching and made it a part of my weekly schedule. Sometimes it’s not about the before and after pictures, it’s about learning how to improve yourself and be your best self.

The results were pretty awesome.

This is the first time I’ve ever seen some carving on the front of my core!

Joy in the journey

I realized that so much of life is mental. How do you think you are and how should you feel?  I invested in and am doing some awesome brain training. Instead of saying negative things to myself, I find a positive. I’m more aware of how I think about myself and my situation.  

As coaches, we tell our challengers to set goals and schedule rewards to hit them. The team is what keeps me going. Many of us have done our “transformation” and now need to maintain for the rest of our lives. We gain and lose and sometimes our goals are totally unrealistic. What matters is the journey and having friends who help along the way. There is no finish line except the grave. 

Today, one of our challengers posted her before and after results. I looked at her measurements that she dutifully took and realized that aside from my waist being 5″ thinner, our measurements everywhere else were within 1/2″ of each other. She reported she had lost 4lbs. I looked at the numbers and realized that her before weigh in was my lofty goal weight. She’s 20lbs LIGHTER than I am. 20 POUNDS! With the same measurements. She’s also 5″ shorter. It blew my mind. 

What I realized is that I’m obsessed with metrics and tracking change and need to instead “do my best and forget the rest.” I need to find joy in the journey and breathe and enjoy life. 

And I realized that I’ll always treat myself as an experiment. Try something new and see what changes. 

Next up, eating my way through the Nom Nom Paleo cookbook and finishing P90X. 

Cize Time

I’m super excited for my new app group that’s doing Shaun T’s dance program Cize. I loved it when I did it last summer and even lost 7.5lbs I didn’t expect to lose!  The group is going to be awesome on the app. 

I love that there are 2 schedule options beginner (6 weeks) and advanced (4 weeks). 

I love that the coach gift workout is 14 minutes and quick when you’re in a rush. 

Trust and Believe that everyone can dance!
