Is the 80 Day Obsession a Healthy Fit For Me?

Let's start with total transparency is that cool?  

autumn calabrese, 80 day obsession transformation, beachbody on demand new workout, 80 day obsession workout calendar

I've spent the last four week focusing on my habits in terms of overall health and fitness. I've been diligently planning my meals, practicing self love, focusing on mindset, and practicing some of my biggest health goals.
It's been a process of getting to the root of some of my habits as well as my personal struggle with body image.

And I think it's because of this focus that I've been asked A LOT about my thoughts on the newest program being released from Beachbody:

"80 Day Obsession"

Is it healthy to "obsess" over a workout?
Is it healthy to "obsess" over food choices? 

A Little Honestly About My Views on Weight Loss:

The Elimination Experience I've been blogging about supports women through the process of living an overall healthy life.  With the support of the virtual community and coaching, challengers were provided with meal plans, a fitness plan as well as as a wellness plan that pushes outside the comfort zone, busts past the plateaus, and helps combat the bigger issue of emotional eating.

I also want to note that the reason I created this Elimination Experience is because the overwhelming response to a post I did recently about yo-yo dieting. Women like me were coming forward sharing their struggles with the "diet" mentality. I too was struggling with the sugar triggers and it was negatively impacting my energy level.

For me and my challengers it was FINALLY about focusing not obsessing.


This was not a restrictive plan or intense workouts. This plan focused on the psychology of our weight struggles. It's been about our mindset before we focus on the scale number.

Within one week of eliminating processed sugars and carbs I noticed a change in my weight but also in my mindset. I noticed that I had more energy, and my cravings weren't as heavy as they had been.   I know the difference between hunger and boredom, and I've had to really focus on the fact that I am an emotional eater. I picked up my journal and started documenting my physical and emotional progress. I started to write how I was feeling as well as some of the deeper issues I think I've been trying to mask with food.

Within two weeks, I noticed a chance in my skin, and within three weeks I saw asignificant difference in waistline.

But you know what was the best part of the experience?
Feeling like I had control of my food intake, instead of food having control over me.

Is Elimination the Same as the New Obsession Program? 

I am not gonna lie...

I am kinda surprised by how many people have reached out to me about the idea of "obsessing"
I have to share this message I got and it just hit home. Does it resonate with you?

"Katy, thank you for the message about not obsessing. I felt a pit in my stomach last week when I saw the new program you are endorsing. I've been thinking about reaching out to you but I stopped myself when I saw a post you did. I've been obsessed, and it's never gone well. I lose weight and then I gain it all back and I start to spiral. I am so tired of this cycle. I want to succeed but I don't want to let this be another cycle. When I read your blog something hit home. My question is, can I do this program? Really?"-Amanda C.


My answer was simple. Yes.
But it's not about obsessing. I don't go there. I will be ADAMANT about that.
It's about determining what you really want to gain. It's about focusing on the work it takes to reach your outcome. It's about making yourself a priority. And we can't make it about weight. That's my promise to my challengers.
Although we will intensify workouts, and focus on our nutrition.  I want this to become habit for you, not an obsession.

Title aside, my job is to support you through the program with fitness, nutrition, accountability and mindset practices.

My goal as the coach is to help you lose weight as much as to help you gain, confidence and clarity.

My goal is to take away the desire to latch onto a fad, and help you grasp onto hard work and real solution.


I am not the coach for everyone.
I am the coach for those who are willing to work hard first on the headspace.
Because if we can conquer that...

That's when we can really make shiz happen.

80 Day Obsession - Everything You Need To Know

autumncalabrese, beachbody on demand, workout schedule 80 day obsession, meal plan 80 day obsession, timed nutrition, bullet proof coffee


Beachbody is preparing for the launch of the newest program, 80 Day Obsession with celebrity trainer, Autumn Calabrese.
I will be honest, when I first heard the title, I was a little taken back by the word, "Obsession,"  – and although I think it can be taken to the extreme, for me, the plan is about making a commitment to become the best, healthiest version of yourself. 


Let's face it! When we take care of ourselves first, it impacts everyone else around us!

Your family, your friends, and everyone else around you will be happiest if YOU are happy and take some time to care for yourself. I've had the chance to check out 5 of these new workouts, and I love the challenge of working new muscles, and focusing on gaining strength- not so much weightloss.

What can you transform most with a program like this?  What could you gain from 80 days of intense focus and dedication? 

Check out my blog post on What is the 80 Day Obsession? for some basic information on the program.

Enrollment Begins December 14th!


Here’s a little reminder in case you forgot what the 80 Day Obsession is all about!

Autumn really breaks it down with this program. It focuses on your abs and booty, and let me tell you, IT WORKS! My little crack in the back is finally getting toned and firm!! Even if you have weight to lose you are going to shed lbs, build lean muscle and you are going to tone your entire body.

There are 3 phases of workouts over the course of 13 weeks. In total there are 97 days of workouts because you get Sundays off as a rest day.

The workouts range from 45-60 minutes, and as always, there is a modifier.
Autumn introduces timed nutrition, which is a macro-nutrient plan that is timed to produce amazing results. She walks you through the meal planning part and the fitness part of the journey.  And as your coach, I will be there every step- right along with you!

My 80 Day Obsession Challenge Group will be starting workouts on January 15th. I’m going to help you out with the timed nutrition, designing meal plans, sticking with your workouts, troubleshooting, and focusing on YOURSELF!

Fill out the application at the bottom of this post to RESERVE YOUR SPOT!




If you follow me on my Facebook or Instagram you know that I have been committed to a brand new fitness program that has not been released yet by Beachbody. 80 Day Obsession is a new program created by fitness expert Autumn Calabrese. Autumn Calabrese also created the 21 Day Fix, 21 Day Fix Extreme, Hammer and Chisel, Country Heat and more. I am currently in the Coach Test Group and I am on day 35 of the program. I can tell you that the results are going to blow your mind. The program officially launches in January of 2018. In the meantime I will be giving you the play by play on my Instagram and Facebook plus sharing my results here. You can also get prepped for the program by joining me in a “Prepare to be Obsessed” Facebook Accountability and Support Group.


Can I Have A Few More Details, Please? 

This program is an effective, step-by-step approach to building a shaped, curvy butt while simultaneously shrinking your core. It’s 80 days of focus on fitness and nutrition spread over 13 weeks.

Is it extreme? 
 YES!!! The workouts are intense and they average 45 minutes to an hour in length. The diet guidelines are every bit as demanding also. You will be following a professionally calibrated macro-nutrition plan perfectly timed to produce amazing results at each phase of the program. 

Yes the program is intense and it is designed to help you get in the absolute best shape of your life. So it is really important that you follow the program to the T in order to get the results that you are expecting.

This program works your entire body but there are days specifically designed to work your butt, your legs, your core, arms and cardio. Each workout is different and we are doing the workouts in real time with Autumn Calabrese. In January 2018 when the program is released you will also be able to do the workouts in real time through Beachbody on Demand. 

What Is The Nutrition Plan Like?

I can tell you that the nutrition plan follows the portion fix containers for measurements but it is totally different than the 21 day fix or other Beachbody programs. You are eating at specific times of the day and you have a pre and post workout meal. You can keep it basic and follow the meal plan or you can get fancy with your recipes. I honestly prefer to keep it as simple as possible. 

I replace 1 meal or snack a day with Shakeology and I use the Beachbody Performance Line every single day. 

I use the Energize pre workout, the hydrate during my workout, recovery post workout and recharge 30 minutes before bed at night. It truly is my saving grace. 

 I will say that it is worth every single penny of investment. I will be going into more detail with the meal plan in the next few weeks. The best part about the whole program is that you get to have a refeed day in which you get to have more carbs to refuel and jolt your body back into results. The first refeed happened at week 6!


Who is the 80 Day Obsession for?


This program is for anyone who wants to literally get strict with their nutrition and see how far they can go with results.
You do need to have a base level of fitness and an understanding of the portion fix and clean eating nutrition will help.

If you have more than 40 pounds to lose I suggest using the next few months to get within that 40 pound goal so that this program is the most effective for you.

This program is good for:

  • Those that want a leaner, firmer, more sculpted body
  • Women looking to add some curves WITHOUT bulking up
  • Anyone who wants more definition
  • Fitness fans looking for an intense, holistic workout that they can do at home
  • People who love a challenge!

The really good news is this! You have lots of time to get ready for 80 Day Obsession which is why I am hosting a “prepare to be obsessed” Facebook group to help you get your nutrition in check and your fitness up to speed.

PLEASE NOTE**

My job as a coach is to support you through the process and provide daily accountability and we work through this program together. My job is NOT to make you obsessed with your body but to help you focus on feeling your best. 
This program will require a shift in mindset as we start seeing food as fuel. 
I will not obsess over my body image but focus on preparing to look and feel my personal best.

You will need bands, sliders, and weights for this workout!


What Can You Do to Prepare for the Program?


Take the next few weeks and join my challenge group and start building a solid foundation for fitness and nutrition and let me walk you through clean eating and exercise together!! 

 I am hosting a “PREPARE TO BE OBSESSED” Facebook Group where my goal is to walk you through goal setting, meal planning, daily preparation, motivation, consistency and accountability.


I will also be sharing tidbits of my 80 Day Obsession journey to help you get a head start on the results. Especially going into the holiday season when most people gain a good 10 pounds, you will be in control and rocking the results with confidence.


The program will launch on January 15th and a new workout will be posted each day for 80 days.

Elimination Experience: How to Tell if This is the Plan for You

I just wrapped up week three of my own elimination experience and have been getting a lot of questions about the program as well as some of the expectations.  The primary focus of the plan is to eliminate certain foods from your diet: processed sugars and carbs.

2B Mindset, 50 hour sleep week challenge, beachbody + 2B mindset, elimination diet, elimination experience, katy ursta, what is the elimination diet

The Elimination Plan is not a diet, it's a simplified way of looking at nutrition as well as an opportunity to evaluate how certain foods make you feel as well as how as your own triggers ans struggles with foods.

Often our issues with food are more about our mindset and our emotions and less about the actual "food."

If You Are Wondering if the Elimination Plan is For You, review the image below.  Did you answer YES to 3+ of the following?!  

If so then the Elimination Plan is most definitely for you!

2B Mindset, 50 hour sleep week challenge, beachbody + 2B mindset, elimination diet, elimination experience, katy ursta, what is the elimination diet


For the Program I Recommend Eliminating:
  • Processed Sugar 
  • Alcohol 
  • Dairy
  • Grains 
  • Whey Based Protein
  • Commitments that exhuast us
  • Negative self-talk

Supplements I Recommend? 

What Makes This Different Thank Other Weightloss Programs? 
As a coach, my job is to create a daily supportive environment for my challengers to thrive in.  Elimination Plan participatns receive daily support, accountability, streaming workouts, and a nutritional plan that meets their needs and helps them understand how food works FOR you.  We dive into the emotional side of weight loss, the difference between diets and long term weight loss results.   Before we focus on the "how to" of weight loss, we go into the "why" behind the loss.

Participants are given tools such as journal prompts, #50hoursleepweekchallenge, a commitment planner, and an online tracker app to help not just achieve weight loss, but gain a bigger understanding of what they have to gain!

Bulletproof Coffee: Why Would Anyone Drink Butter?

butter coffee, how to make bulletproof coffee, purchase bulletproof coffee, diet coffee, elimination diet
Seriously? Who Drinks Butter? 
Hey friends! Just wanted to give a you the quick scoop on wrapping up the second week of the #eliminationexperience

The Good (Ok! The GREAT!)
  • I drink butter. And it's legit.
  • My clothes are feeling loose!
  • According to the scale I am down 5 pounds!
  • I have a ton of energy 
  • I am really well rested!
  • My focus is on point. 
  • Cravings are G-O-N-E!
  • Fasting is definitely not what I thought. (Read on!) 
  • I definitely am not dieting.
  • I am conscious of the food choices I've been making!
  • There is no feeling of deprivation.
  • I CRUSHED the #50hoursleepweekchallenge!


The "EH"- Elimination
  • I miss my post workout recover formula 
  • I need to remind myself to drink more water

I've shared two things that I have personally decided to try out since starting this challenge:
Intermittent Fasting & Bulletproof Coffee.  I will be honest, I was skeptical about both but after listening to a few of my trusted trainer talk about these things, I've decided to give them a go!

Here is some information about each!
fasting fad, fasting diet, ketones, chalene johnson diet, intermittent science,elimination diet
What's the Real Deal with this Fasting? Fad? 

Intermittent Fasting 

What is It? 
Intermittent fasting is not a diet or a fad, but it is a different way of eating. Science supports that it's a way to naturally burn more fat. While you fast, your body is no longer "processing" it's last meal, so your insulin levels will naturally decrease which gives your body the opportunity to burn stored fat instead of burning calories consummed. 

In general while following this type of plan, a person consumes calories in an 8 hour window and fasts for 16 hours.  My window for eating begins at 11 am and ends at 7 pm. 

During the morning, I do consume energize and bulletproof coffee. I've gotten mixed opinions on whether this breaks the fast or not, but so far, I am seeing results on the scale and in my waistline. I also love the discipline of fasting.  It has not been an adjustment at all. 

How Do I Break My Fast? 

When my fast is over around 11 am, I start the day with eggs, veggies, avocado, and a side of either bacon or chicken sausage. I also consumed a loaded shakeology (filled with fruit spinach and about 4 oz of almond milk and 4 oz of water.  I also consume another coffee. 


What is Bullet Proof Coffee and What are the Benefits? 

I've been drinking bulletproof coffee for about two weeks. It's a smooth, creamy mixture that uses high fats instead of loaded creamers and sugars. 
Reminder: FAT IS NOT THE ENEMY!

Benefits: 
1.  It can help with weightloss by curbing those morning cravings and staves off hunger during fasting.
2. It's loaded with healthy fats- that help the body in MANY ways.
3. It helps with energy and focus! 


How Do I Make Bulletproof Coffee? 

Ingredients: 

1 large cup of low acidic coffee. Try this one!
1 teaspoon to 1 tablespoon of Brain Octane Oil or coconut oil
1 teaspoon to 1 tablespoon of ghee butter (this is optional) 

Directions:
1. Make your coffee as usual
2. Add oil and butter
3. Blend for 20-30 second
*Play around with adding flavors like peppermint or vanilla or cinnamon to the mixture!

Enjoy immediately! If you wait too long the oil will float to the top!
Here's a video I did to show how I make it!



What Does your Meal Plan Look Like for this Week? 
Glad you asked! Here is a copy of my meal plan for this week! Enjoy!
