80 Day Journey Q&A

YOU GOT QUESTIONS AND IVE GOT ANSWERS

80 day obsession week 2 day 12

We just wrapped up week 2 in my 80 Day Launch party and let me just say the results are speaking for themselves.

I’m not talking so much about the visual changes as much as the way people are FEELING as a result of taking their HEALTH -AND- FITNESS to the next level.

Here are just a few testimonials:

And honestly the list went ON AND ON!!!

In the last two weeks I’ve received some repetitive questions about this new 80 Day journey I am following (and leading for others) along with a few questions on how the timed nutrition plan works and I thought I would address some of the most common questions here. If you think of anything else not answered please feel free to comment below or email me:

Q: Do you just drink shakes all day?

A: Ummmm NO! I do enjoy my superfoods shaken daily and have found immense relief using a post workout routine chocolatey slice of heaven in a cup to reduce the muscle soreness but my sweet friends YOU eat to fuel your bod here….and it comes in various forms.

Q: I bet your food is so bland and boring! So do you just munch on carrots and lettuce and call it a day?

Ummmm again, NOOOOO!
You’re EATING a good bit of WHOLE, natural FOODS!
And I am actually in the lowest calorie bracket and chances are in phase 2 I’ll even be eating more.
This is just a sample of the food I eat in a day. No I am not just “eating to eat” and YES I do really enjoy these foods!

Q: But it just seems TOO HARD to follow, especially on the weekends. 

A: My simple answer: if you want something you’ve never had you have to do something you’ve never done

But in all honesty…YES it takes planning, a lot of planning, and prep & YES it takes time, YES it takes discipline but it’s only “HARD” when you allow it to be hard.

And when you EMBRACE THE CHALLENGE & CHANGE all in one swoop…anything is possible

We follow the meal plan on the weekend just as we do the week day!
Here’s a quick glance at what week 3 will look like for us:

Q: I’m not going to follow the nutrition plan, but I’ll do the 80 day obsession workouts, okay?!?

A: That’s totally fine but if you don’t follow the nutrition plan, then you are not “DOING THE PROGRAM”.

The program comes in two pieces, the fitness & the nutrition. To completely do the PROGRAM you must do both pieces.

Can you do the program and get good results?
Sure you can.
But to get the results you see from the test group participants you really do need to follow the timed nutrition aspect as well.

Let me clarify this is not a quick fix. This is simply a clean balance of whole foods SPECIFICALLY designed with macro combos with 5 meals each day. You’re not CUTTING any food group out and therefore do not have any phases back in. Its a lifestyle you could continue and the results, while they may not be DRASTIC, they’re going to be RESULTS I can sustain and THAT is something I can benefit from!

That little something something to satisfy a sweet tooth craving?

Or maybe you’re favorite past time is licking the cookie dough bowl (even when mom says no) and sneaking in that last little bite of dough???

I am one who honestly prefers the chocolate chip cookie DOUGH over the cookie and also one who is now avoiding gluten (because I bloat like a mad woman) and dairy (because my skin breaks out like a teenage girl) and I am ELATED to find a healthier sweet alternative that fits my dietary preferences and well, tastes AMAZING.

MEET:

Cookie Dough Energy Balls

Total Time: 15 min.
Prep Time: 15 min.
Cooking Time: None
Yield: 13 servings, 1 ball each

WHAT YOU NEED: 
½ cup all-natural almond butter
¼ cup raw honey
½ cup finely chopped raw almonds (I used slivers and they worked great!)
2½ scoops Vegan Vanilla Shakeology (you could use the regular but the taste of the vegan is wayyyyyy better!)
2 Tbsp. mini semi-sweet (or dark chocolate) chocolate chips (I use the ENJOY LIFE brand – found at Target #yourewelcomemoms) 

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO:
1. Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl. More specifically: I found it easiest to mix the dry almonds and Shakeology, then I added the almond butter, mixed well, then added the honey, mixed well again, and stirred in the chocolate chips. 
2. Roll into thirteen balls, about 1-inch in diameter each. (I used the pampered chef small scoop and it actually got 20 balls – so I adjusted the serving size to be 1.5 balls to match the nutritional breakdown below)

Staying on track – even on the weekends!

Maegan Blinka, Jim Rohn quote, motivation, inspiration, fitspiration

Its Friday…you’ve worked hard all week, you’ve been diligent with your workouts and as you look ahead to the weekend you note: Happy Hour Friday, a busy day of soccer games and errand running Saturday followed by your best friends surprise birthday party, and a family get together on Sunday…how do you make sure you don’t undo all that hard work you just put in the 5 days prior?

Here’s my tips:

workout on the weekend, weekend warrior, 21 day fix Dirty 30, sweat, motivation

1. Treat weekend like weekday! This may seem silly – but its so important! Take advantage of the “extra” time you have during the weekend and put it to good use! What exactly do I mean? 

  • Get up at the same time you usually do
  • Get your workout in as early as possible
  • Eat the same foods you usually eat
  • Plan out all of your meals and snacks – even if you’re going to be home. This will reduce temptations to grab and go or mindlessly snack

2. Schedule in your one weekly cheat meal over the weekend. This can be at home with your family, entertaining friends or out to eat. If you know you’ll be eating out at least once over the weekend this is always a good place for your off meal/cheat meal. Be sure to stick to you plans and goals all week and the enjoy something special! If you don’t take that time to enjoy the little things eventually you’ll just cave! Just make sure its one meal and not a cheat day!!! And don’t go overboard on the portions. The meal itself may be something different from the typical foods you eat but that doesn’t mean you hit your daily caloric goal in big sitting! Be sensible. If you go out to eat, order sensible portions, take half home and/or skip at least the app or dessert-don’t get both!!! If you want alcohol, really enjoy one or two drinks-not 5! 

3. Pack snacks and take a cooler!!! You don’t want to lean back on the excuse that you just didn’t have any healthy options available – be prepared!!! You want to balance a complex carb and protein to help keep you fuller – longer!

4. Drink your shake! Okay okay, but seriously – don’t skip it! I find when I drink my shake first thing, in general, I made better decisions the rest of the day! If you’re a big breakfast eater and want to take advantage of the extra time you have over the weekend maybe you do breakfast for dinner! Just make sure you fuel your body…whether its to curb those cravings, give you energy or just in general to provide you with all the nutrients you need in a day – just drink it!!

5. Take water with you if you’re not going to be home – and LOTS of it! Thirst is often confused for hunger and if you are not properly hydrated you may find yourself snacking endlessly when really it could have all been avoided with a big chug chug chug-a-lug. Here’s some additional tips on HOW TO DRINK MORE WATER. 

abs are made in the kitchen, you are what you eat, Maegan Blinka, food is fuel

6. If you have a get together with friends-bring something you know you will eat! My Southwest Quinoa Salad is always a hit! If you’re the one hosting, you have complete control of the main meal! I’ve done Fish and Shrimp tacos several times – its clean, healthy, and people can make it their own style with various add ons so its sure to be a crowd pleaser! You don’t want to be the person serving raw veggies and some plain grilled chicken all the time but healthy eating isn’t boring eating! You just have to find ways to mix it up and make it more enjoyable for everyone. Don’t  be afraid to let others know what changes you’ve made…you’re making changes so you can be healthier-be proud 🙂 

7. If you’re heading to party – remember what you’re there to celebrate! The purpose is not to see who can eat the most cookies or the biggest piece of cake! The purpose is to get together with friends or family and catch up, enjoy each other’s company, watch the kiddos play, etc… So do that! If you’re not sure what is going to be available for food, plan your shake before you leave or on the way. This way you’re not “starving” when you arrive which could lead into over eating and poor food choices!!

8. Take some time and meal plan/prep for the following week. Farmers markets are a great way to stock up on local produce, get it washed, portioned and/or cooked. This will make the weeknights a bit easier!

9. Do something to relax – or destress – relaxation goes a long way!

make exercising part of your routine, no excuses, motivation, just do it, do it anyway, workout even when you don't want to, you can have excuses or results but not both
