Can you believe it’s already March?! And GUESS WHAT?!!!
March 22nd marks 90 DAYS until the official start of summer!!!!!! AHHHHHHHH!!!!
If you’ve been waiting for the perfect time to start your own 90 Day Journey… now is the time!! This is the time of year when motivation starts to dip a little because the “new year” push is long gone. We all have our eyes set for summer! So why not use this time to make some big changes?
And to be honest, I think we could ALL use a boost after the past year. As we get through this (hopefully) last push to life returning to some sense of normalcy, your journey can provide so much more than something to look forward to. It can provide structure, which is SO important during unpredictable times.
So if you’ve been feeling a little lost this past year, like you’re grasping for something positive to concentrate on, your journey starts now. It’s time to grow yourself. It’s time to focus on the inner, while the outer is so fleeting.
And I also want to make this clear: Wanting change DOES NOT mean that you don’t love yourself or are ungrateful for what you do have. I think that it’s important to say this because change is not a bad thing. It’s a sign that we want to breathe some new life into our days. The change doesn’t have to be big, but sometimes having new perspectives gives us newfound ideas and inspiration.
Sooooo in honor of your new journey, I wanted to support you in the best way possible. You can now get both the 90 Day Journey Meal Plan AND the actual 90 Day Journal together in one package! PLUS, I have an exciting prize waiting at the very end of all this!
I’m sharing this now so that you have time to prep your mindset, order the package, and get all your tools ready in time for March 22nd.
So, how do you get in on the fun?! Glad you asked…
Step 1: Nourish Your Body
First, your journey doesn’t have to be about changing your weight. And guess what? Eating healthy doesn’t have to be about changing your weight either! Before I went on my journey, I tried basically every diet out there. And every time, I told myself I was eating healthier. BUT I WASN’T. I was depriving myself, underfueling my body, and lacking nutrition.
And it showed in every way. My energy and my mood suffered. My brain was always foggy. I felt like I was running in circles but never content with myself. I always needed more. It definitely wasn’t healthy.
So yes, diet (not A diet) was a part of my journey, and I encourage it to be part of yours, too. Because I found that finally focusing on nutrition and eating all of the foods my body needed was the core of feeling good. I noticed I could concentrate better, I was happier, and ready to make changes in other areas of my life.
I noticed such a big change once I figured out a healthy diet that I worked with a registered dietitian to create a meal plan, so you could find easy ways to eat the way I did on my own journey. It’s based on protein and tons of veggies and fruit. There are no grains, dairy, or refined sugar, just because I’ve learned those foods don’t agree with me! You can use the plans however you like – as they’re written, or as a base for something more personalized.
To accommodate as many dietary preferences as possible, I actually made FOUR plans:
- Omnivore (includes meat)
- Pescatarian (includes fish but not meat)
- Vegetarian (no meat or fish)
- Vegan (no animal products)
Every plan has 3 different activity levels to choose from, plus a guide to choosing the best plan to fit your needs. The meals are easy to make with simple ingredient lists, and there are weekly grocery lists to make planning even easier.
Check out the 90 Day Meal Plan to see what plan is best for you!
Step 2: Grab A 90 Day Journal
This journal is EVERYTHING. Seriously, it’s your motivator, your guide, and your accountability.
Grab one and have it ready before you start your journey. Write down your “why” and your goals before you begin, and keep track of your progress throughout your journey. No matter how far off track you get, or how close to giving up you feel, always come back to this journal! And write EVERYTHING down.
- Every new meal that you love
- Every workout that makes you feel invincible
- Every moment you feel your confidence grow
- Every time you doubt yourself
- Every time you lose sight of your goals
All of it. The good AND the bad! When you’re done, your 90 Day Journal will tell the story of your journey so you can truly appreciate how far you’ve come.
Step 3: Commit to Your Journey by Posting About It!
Use the hashtag #90dayjourney to share your daily triumphs and struggles. It’s also a great way to find other people to cheer on!

Hi Casey. I want to start a 90 day journey starting September. I just found you on YouTube when you did Pilates w Julianne Hough! You are a great motivator for me! I just had my bday I’m 44 now. My metabolism is not like yours and neither is my stamina. I work nights along with Covid pts and my body has suffered for it. I went from 125 to 136. And not feeling my best. Do you think it’s a good idea for me to start a 90 day journey or do the September challenge?
I have 2 kids who eat with us and a Husband do these dinner meals cook for more than 1?
I took the HGSS challenge and that was a good exercise to become more conscious of what I have been putting into my mouth. It was really great and loved the food! Despite my nervousness about not be able to handle zero refined carbs and added sugar I realized that I did not have those crazy cravings during those two weeks and even beyond that point. I felt so good and what I liked the most was that I was alert and happier! I might be a little behind on starting the journey before summer is officially here but I will embark on this ship and hope for the best. It will probably be more challenging as Summer is fully in place soon and other plans may get on the way but will try harder to stay on track, I promise myself lol. Thanks for sharing your story (ies), Cassey.
Hi, Cassey! I am on day 41 of my 90-day journey and am really enjoying it! I find that all the journaling has allowed me to understand my body so much better. One question I have: Since my body is changing fairly significantly along this journey, should I be recalculating my BMR and therefore my caloric requirements? My BMR is changing as my weight drops. How frequently should I be recalculating my BMR to adjust what my ideal caloric intake should be?
My “why” is that I don’t want to feel sluggish and BLAH anymore. It’s a terrible feeling and I know it’s directly related to me gaining 30 pounds over the last two years and just not doing anything at all. I also want to stop procrastinating on tasks that are important to me and that can have a significant impact on the quality of my life. So for the next 90 days, I’m going to eat clean, get moving (even if it’s only 10 minutes when I just feel like laying on the couch), and get to work on my priority to-do list!
YES I love this!!! That’s a great why, to want to feel more energetic! Excited to hear more about your journey!!!
I want to choose myself everyday, and I want to do right by my body. Whether it’s being mindful about eating or just getting back to appreciating and building my stamina and endurance.
So excited to start! After a year of just being stagnant and not caring about my mental and physical health, it feels good to take charge and work on becoming the best version of myself
My Why? I am WORTH it and it’s time to the journey for ME, no one else and no other reason but for ME!
Dear Cassey, I love your 90-day trip, I love your workout. Now I’m in the fifth week of the 90 day trip and my weight for the second week is + – 0.5kg up, down 🙁 I went from level 2 to level 1 and no change, I returned with regard to caloric expenditure to level 2 Should I continue?I need the last 5 kg down. Thanks, take care! Sarka.
I feel like I’ve been wasting time in so many ways. I’m using this 90-day journey to start to “Use My Time More Wisely”. That’s the name of my campaign, if you will (shout out to @MrsKevOnStage). I’m going to improve my entire life by making sure that I’m using my time to do all of the things that I need and want to do! Let’s go!!! I’m excited!! 💪🏽💪🏽💪🏽💃🏽💃🏽💃🏽
I’m so excited!!! My why is to get back on track with my health journey.
I just purchased the 90 Day Journey. How to I calculate body fat and muscle mass %?
I am a petite woman going into the construction field so my why for my 90 day journey is to be strong enough to carry myself through my construction classes without help. I am the only female in my classes and clearly the weakest one, but what I want to focus on is performing my absolute best: being able to build a wall frame without taking a break, using a 24oz hammer without feeling fatigued, and lifting 2x4s without any assistance. I know being able to do these things by my own strength will give me the confidence to pursue my dreams to become a carpenter so I am really hoping this journey will be a success for me. Thank you so much Cassey!! ❤️
I’m 58yrs old and my arms are horrific!!They’re very flabby with loose skin, I’m in fairly good shape and not over weight, but these arms??!! Is this something I can fix with arm workout alone is my question- I look in the mirror and and freak out! Help!!
Dear Cassey, what are some goals I should put down for my 90 day journey?
Was Waiting for this….My marriage is exactly after 80 days
I began my workout journey back in April last year, and I was working out quite consistently till December. I think I was motivated by my desire to reach a certain weight, but now that I did, I realise I’m not as motivated anymore 🙁
I KNOW working out truly does lift my mood, and it gives me soo many other benefits, but since December I’ve been taking WEEKS off working out and then deciding to ‘restart’ but that sudden motivation only lasts a week or two and I’m not really able to make working out a habit. Also not exercising frequently also has a negative effect on my diet, and I’m now slowly starting to regain all that weight I lost.
I am not sure what to do right now, I will hopefully do just a 30 min workout today and we’ll see how it goes from there. But do you have any advice for me??
why is reaching a certain wieght your goal?
I’m very much like you-I go hard for awhile and then I become less motivated to keep up the consistency when I achieve a weight/size goal. I’ve come to understand that I am very cyclical and everything has a season. Honor rest periods in life. That being said, I’ve noticed that if a goal is a weight or size that might not be a motivator to keep up consistency. What about a new goal of minutes of activity a day?
