Day 2 ✌! We made the best of the rain! We had a yummy breakfast, went fishing, searched for 'gold' in the stream, had ice cream, and played in the game room!
Rain is STILL going, but fire is warm and strong! 🔥 🔥 🔥
Tomorrow is our last day! 😢
This is probably the most complex and structured program I’ve followed. The workouts were longer than I was used to and the meal plan was a timed nutrition meal plan making it easy but also extremely difficult for me to follow. Following the nutrition part was hard because personally it was really hard on my body, especially with working a full time job.
I’ve learned what disciple really looks like. I learned what I was actually capable of if I set my mind to it and wanted it bad enough. What I learned the most and what my biggest transformation (in my opinion) was, was that I could be going through a ton of shit, I could not feel like working out or eating and I still would. There were times when I felt like I could reward myself and I ate things I shouldn’t have. I had tacos, churros, chocolate, sandwiches, cupcakes, potato and pasta salads. But I didn’t quit and say fuck it, I give up. I pushed myself not only physically but mostly mentally. It’s really hard to to eat certain things at certain times during the day, and it’s even harder to get out of bed or workout after work when I was tired and had little to no sleep.
I had anxiety attacks which, for the most part, I’ve learned how to handle and overcome now. I fought through a cold, literally fought through it because I didn’t get the worst symptoms, and you wouldn’t know it but I fucked my shoulder up a few weeks ago and just worked through the pain. It’s fine now.
I’m so grateful for this experience because I’ve learned a lot about myself. Not everyone will understand how you can learn about yourself by doing a workout program (I used to feel like that) but until you start to do physical activity and living a healthy lifestyle you’ll never know. It’s hard to explain but exercise and changing your lifestyle has changed so many people. Sometimes you don’t realize how much you’ve changed and grown until your done, then it just hits you.
I lost 5.3lbs and 9inches overall. I’m stronger mentally and physically. I feel amazing, healthy, happy, and strong. But the best feeling is accomplishment and how proud I am of myself for getting through 80 days of continuous workouts, eating clean, and self care. 💗
