Do you ever get to the point of doing something repeatedly to where you barely have to put forth the effort to take action?
Two weeks ago – before beginning the PIYO program – I felt like that.
Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely LOVE the 21-day fix. The workouts are spot on and the nutrition guide cannot be beat but – after doing it for so long – I needed a change and I am so thankful I went with PIYO! Its low impact yet still intense…so I am a nice sweaty mess at the end which always help support that I am getting in a good workout!
In just these first two weeks I am noticing a significant improvement in my strength, flexibility and there’s a wee bit of ab definition starting to pop through – which is pretty darn exciting!
I have been following the “strength” workout calendar and am 1/4 of the way through the 8 week program.
I enjoy all the focus the core and the fact that I don’t need any equipment – just ME!
My tricep pushups are now done with ease.
I can hold my poses with more stability and focus.
And my daughter even likes to pop in here and there for some fun!
I have decided to stick with the 21-day fix meal plan throughout the program for a few reasons: 1) Its what I know. Its how I look at food and its how I think about nutrition. 2) It works for me! And honestly it will work for just about anyone but I know what foods maximize my mentality, my functionality and my energy levels and I like the way I feel on this program! 3) Its easy for me…I have been eating clean, balanced portions for over a 18 months now. This is how I see nutrition plus the containers are pretty cute too 🙂
4) It allows me to schedule in some treats and cheats here and there and that BALANCE is key in my success for maintaining a healthy and balanced lifestyle! I sure do love my cookies!!!
People are always asking about meal planning and trust me, I get it, it is intimidating but I promise once you get into the swing of things its just a party of your week!!!
Here’s my week 3 meal plan as an example:
Clearly – I repeat a lot of the same meals! It makes my shopping, prep and day to day decisions easier – so why complicate things?!?! I like to prep in advance and use my crockpot AT LEAST once a week (hello salsa chicken!!!)
Plus I’ll admit – all my challengers really help keep me on my toes and committed to my daily healthy lifestyle so I can lead by example for all of them! Its a combo effort no doubt!!!
