80 Day Obsession: Week 2 Results
It's been 14 days since I have joined the 80 Day Obsession Test Group. And this weekend I failed to follow the program 100%.
I debated if I should share that I slipped up, but I'm a true believer in being REAL following these programs. So here's how my Week 2 went....
The work week went really well. I meal prepped, mixed up my foods a bit (added in some avocado, jicama and more chicken). The workouts were harder in Week 2, because we had an extra round of exercises in most workouts. So that had us working out longer, which has always been a struggle for me.
It was Friday evening that everything started to crumble. This weekend I had a visitor planned to come in from out of town. I was excited for him to come visit, to spend a weekend together, and to stay on track with my goals and even share with him what I've been doing on the program. We even talked about him doing the Saturday workout with me.
On Friday night everything shattered. He told me he was here, I was working to coordinate our time out and he stopped responding to me. Legitimately "ghosted" and I was left in my apartment alone, dressed up to meet this special someone and I had been abandoned. It became clear that I was being played and I was (and still am) devastated. He never contacted me again.
I drank this alcohol this weekend. I drank because I needed to get out of my own head, forget what happened, and not sit in my apartment crying all weekend (even though that still happened). I feel like shit, I'm ashamed and seeing everyone else's photos and weekend updates made me feel guilty as hell.
I know that I shouldn't have to turn to alcohol to fix things. I know that there is a relationship with food that I still need to fix. But I am grateful to be a part of this group to be inspired and know that if others can do this - I can too. I just need to focus on my mindset and get back into the game after this blip two weeks in.
I am human. I am not perfect, and that is OK. I am going to stop beating myself up over my actions.
I got back on track on Sunday evening. My food is prepped for Week 3. I downloaded new audiobook to help shift my mindset. And I'm ready to tackle Week 3 with renewed energy and confidence that I CAN do this.
The good news is: Falling off track this weekend didn't completely derail my progress from Day 1. My core is still feeling leaner and stronger than ever. I'm going to use this photo as motivation to keep going in Week 3 and come out even stronger after this next weekend.
