Well this week Beachbody is doing something different with their on-demand workout platform. They are giving a week long streaming sneak peak of the new workout program that is coming in January, that is called 80 Day Obsession. This is Autumn Calabrese’s latest workout program for Beachbody. Now I have a love/hate relationship with Autumn’s 21 Day Fix and 21 Day Fix Extreme workout programs–I love them, but at the same time I hate them.

This is one of my more favorite memes when it comes to her workouts–during both 21 Day Fix and 21 Day Fix Extreme–the workouts were one minute–but it is one long minute.

So her newest program is of a similar fashion–but its 80 DAYS, instead of 21. The sneak peak today was a core focused workout–and I only managed about half of it (and that was even more modified than what the modifier was doing). I think this is going to be a really cool program, but since I’ve neglected my fitness regime for the past year or so–I know that I need to work up to doing this program.  Currently I’m doing a second round of T25 with Shawn T, and will be restarting week 3 tomorrow (last week wasn’t a good week). After I get through all three rounds of T25, I’m going to move on probably a hybrid program that will mix cardio with weight training (something that I miss doing), and hopefully by the summer be able to give Autumn’s new workout program the attention that it deserves.

So the other thing that I’m going to be trying to plan this week is a minimization challenge. I’ve realized that depending on how the job hunt goes (I do have a slightly informal job offer, and an Skype interview next week), I could be moving within the next two months. Now I have a lot of stuff in my storage unit that needs to get repacked, due to the fact that the boxes have been sitting in that storage unit for almost 5 years now, and the boxes are starting to fall in on themselves and the tape is starting to come off. The thing is I don’t want to be adding another 15-20 boxes into that jumble, and I’m not sure right now how many boxes it would take to pack up everything that I’ve acquired since moving in with my parents.

Over the next few weeks I’m going to work on lessening the amount of things I have to pack, though right now majority of it is clothes (which may be a little harder for me to part with), but we shall see what I’m able to do (or at least how I’m able to do creative packing). 🙂 Nothing is ever a quick fix, fast route, or easy solution. Trying to figure out where we should be, our dream job(s), and what our life should look like takes time, and the roads at time can curve back around and it will seem that we’ve ended up back at square one.

It isn’t square one in the same sense–you’ve been there before, and now can chose a different door (or window). Remember we are all in charge of our own futures (even if it doesn’t always seem that way).
