|Piyo Week 2|
I ROCKED Week Two of Piyo and am officially DONE!! So now I have a good feel of the workouts and I know that EVERYONE wants to know what I think of it.
I am actually loving it and am surprised. I am missing lifting some weights and the high intensity cardio. I am adding in some runs because I really enjoy getting out and enjoying some fresh air with my littles.
I do love all the core work and flexibility that is coming with this program. It's a nice break for the pounding I normally give myself. Not every workout gives me a huge sweat so I make sure to really push myself in every workout and do as much as I can. That really where the results lie.
I figure if I'm already awake, I might as well give it my all.
I am loving the "SWEAT" workout!! Man is that workout SWEATY and it totally engages my core and I just simply feel amazing afterwards. I really love Piyo Core as well. Both are great workouts, challenging, and push me in the areas I need the most work.
The upper body workout is REALLY short I feel - Only 20 minutes! I am all about feeling the BURN so I have been adding in my run on those days!! I love running.

I started Week 2 off with doing the 3 Day Refresh. This is a new cleanse that just came out and I must say I felt amazing afterwards. Totally refreshed, lost 3.5 pounds and was totally back on track after a few weeks of over indulging.

Right after the Refresh was some 4th of July FUN!
The answer is

Yes, it was a challenge
Yes, I had a few margaritas, pizza, and goodies
Did I get right back on track? Yep!
It's always challenging when a holiday comes up, you are heading to a BBQ, have family around, ect. But you can always CONTROL every situation. It's all about choices. If you want to stay on track - Then bring a Salad that you enjoy so that you have a healthy choice. Use your will power, double up workouts.
You CONTROL what you put in your mouth! :)

I'm telling you, It's HOT in Hawaii and I'm not a shorts girl. I always felt insecure about it and it felt amazing to slip these on and feel comfortable wearing them. Nothing beats that Non-Scale Victory!
One thing about Piyo is you aren't getting a high calorie burn so it's important to stick to your meal plan and watch your portions. I LOVE my carbs so it's been a struggle making sure that I stick to the meal plan and don't add in but It's a good struggle. It's helping me stay on track and stay conscious of the things i'm adding in my diet.
Here is my meal plan for the week.
Having a plan totally keeps me on track through out the week. Sometimes I have to switch things around or don't get around to making every single meal because we decide on something quick and easy or have leftovers but this reminds me that I have a plan and will always have clean and healthy meals in the house. I also use Sundays to prep anything that I need for the week. I like to baggy up my veggies so I can just grab them and go. Eggs are always my go to when I'm feeling lazy and need a quick go to for something clean.
This is the type of greek yogurt I get! No added sugars or fruit. Just plain 0% Greek Yogurt and then I add in my own fresh fruit, cinnamon, and a squirt of honey. Doesn't give you all that added sugar and junk and tastes just as good, I actually think better.
