*2022 Update*: while this vegan meal plan is an amazing way to incorporate more plants into your diet, I can no longer completely endorse it because it does not take the female cycle into mind. I also no longer consume recover or Shakeology. I now follow meal plans and recipes that align with the different phases of the menstrual cycle and found the best results physically as well as menstrually (no more mood swings, cravings or painful periods!. To find out more about how I did that check out Feed Your Phase.
Since June of 2017 it's been a whirlwind. I'll spare you the plethora of EXCUSES but basically uprooting my world, moving from PA to WY, and living in a vacation town distracted me from my goals. I'm a Beachbody coach of 5 years and what I know to be true is this--NOTHING gets your motivated and accounted for like a NEW workout program that all your friends are going to do too!
80 Day Obsession just launched this week and it consists of:
-80 different workouts (focuses on your booty and abs--and would usually cost $2500 but we get it for dollars!)
-Timed nutrition (to help maximize your results)
-COMMITMENT (which thankfully I have my team and customers for accountability)
The workouts are longer, the meal plan is strategic--but when you hit your limit with tolerating your own excuses, I find that structure works BEST! Now I have some social events coming up and my goal is to continue to use this program as a guide (not my bible!). The rest of the time, I'm dialed in!
I consider myself a flexitarian (I eat seafood time to time because my family runs a seafood business)...but going to keep it VEGAN as usual during the next 80 days. I know what my body is capable of when I fuel it with plant based foods and products so I'm excited to see what comes of it! (
Anyway--wanted to share with you all my meal plan for the first week. I will for sure be switching things in and out for variety. If this all seems foreign to you please feel free to reach out so I can explain further
