I made it through Week 2 of 80 Day Obsession. I struggled a little more this week in the nutrition aspect than I would have liked, but I made it through with some good result none the less.
Whenever I start a program I am focused and motivated to stick with the program, workouts and all, then real life starts creeping in and the real challenge starts. Read about how my second week of 80 Day Obsession went.
Week 2 of 80 Day Obsession Meal Plan
Meal planning took a little less time this week since I am more used to the program now. I also defiantly utilized both the Fixate Cooking Show and the Fixate Cookbook to help.
Week 2 of 80 Day Obsession Meal Prep
This week I went a little overboard in prepping food. After making my plan I knew I wanted to make my post workout meal (breakfast) and lunch as easy as possible since those two meals I am usually on the go for.
I made Peanut butter and Chocolate Steel Cut Oatmeal from the Fixate Cookbook for my post workout meal. This only took about 40 minutes to make and most of that time was just the oats cooking. I also hard boiled eggs so that I could grab them and go.
For lunches you can see that I alternate between Chicken Stuffed Peppers and Sweet Potato and Chicken Lettuce wraps. Both of these recipes are found in the Fixate Cooking show on Beachbody on Demand. I cooked the stuffed peppers, and made enough for the hubby to have some, as well as pre-cooked and mashed the sweet potatoes. I also cooked some chicken and diced it up so that I could just grab everything and make the wraps quickly as I was making the girls their lunches each day.

The moves from this workouts were the same as last week, and apparently will be for the rest of this first month. However, what changed was the pattern and weights. Last week we did 15 reps of each move twice. This week we did 10 reps of each move but did each move 3 times.
Since we were doing less reps this wee with each set we were told to up the weights or loops resistance just a little. Luckily my fellow coach, Ashley, who comes over to my house every morning to workout with me bought 12 lb weights and brought them over. So for this workouts I used 10s, 12s, 15s, and a 45lb plate, depending on the move. I tried to stick closely with what Autumn was using so I could compare and not really have to think about it. I have a feeling that I’m going to need to buy 20s and 25s soon, especially for leg day.
My focus this week during the workouts was to push myself harder and longer than I had in the first week. Now that I knew the moves, I could really go deeper, focus on form, and squeeze a little harder than I had. My goal was to beat my calorie burn from the previous week. Some workouts I did just that and other workouts I fell a little short, but over all it felt really good.
The goal by the end of each workout is to be so spent that I couldn’t do another rep, and I succeeded in that goal.
I also loved that for my Stretch and Release day the girls came down and joined me in a little stretching.
Timed Nutrition for Week 2 of 80 Day Obsession
As I stated above, this weeks nutrition was tough because real life started creeping back in and my commitment was challenged. The girls wanted Mac and Cheese for lunch, and I caved and had a couple spoonfuls. This is still better than I would have done if I wasn’t on the program, but it is technically cheating.
However, I did stick closely with my pre-workout, post-workout, and lunch meals. It’s the 2-5 PM time frame that I’m naturally more hungry and tend to graze. I also have a bad habit of munching on a Belvita cracker in the car when the girls ask for one.
Other than that, my dinners were really good and Holy Cow were those Wasabi Salmon Burgers FANTASTIC!! The recipe calls for putting them on a bun, but I used lettuce instead and it was still so good. The Mole Chicken was spicy and delicious, but took a really long time to make so I don’t think I’ll be doing that again soon.
We had friends over for dinner on Saturday and I made the Turkey Tacos which were a HUGE hit and even the picky eaters loved them. These are definitely a make again dish.
The other thing I focused on this week was getting my sleep schedule pretty regular. Autumn talks a lot about how sleep is so important for your body. When you sleep, you give your body a chance to heal and repair itself. She suggests trying to get 7-8 hours of sleep a night. Since I wake up at 5AM for my pre-workout meal, I have been trying to get to bed no later than 8:30PM most nights.
That’s not to say I’m asleep by then, just in bed relaxing.
Week 2 Results
Even though I wasn’t 100% with my nutrition this week I am still really happy to see results starting to come through. My pants are fitting better, my waist feels smaller, and even my hips feel like they are shrinking.
James even commented that my booty was getting higher and rounder… SCORE!!
