PiYo: A Fresh Start

After trying out a few of the workouts from PiYo I have decided to do the entire 60 Day program.  My first day was yesterday, yes a Friday.  I used to always have the mentality of I’ll start Monday, or I’ll start next week.  Not anymore. I’m trying to take one day at a time and live each day healthier than the last.  So yesterday I took my before photos.  Taking a before picture of your body is so important.  You need a visual of where you started.  I will post my before picture side by side with my after photo in 60 days.

I also weighed myself and took measurements.  Since I’ve already lost the bulk of my weight, thanks to P90X3, T25, and 21 Day Fix, I don’t have too much more to lose.  I’m more concerned with toning up and losing inches.  So, I measured each of my biceps, each of my thighs, my waist, and my hips.  In 30 days I will measure and see what I have lost.  My weight was 131, and I’m really hoping to get to 126 in 60 days.  I’m hoping I can stay on track with my nutrition so I can achieve this goal!

The best part of PiYo is I can do it with my kiddos. Annabelle just loves exercising with mommy on her own pink yoga mat.

So what is PiYo?

Think Pilates and Yoga squished together in a very low-impact, but high-intensity workouts. Burn lots of calories, get long & lean muscles, without jumping or running.  All of the workouts are choreographed by Chalene Johnson, and she is such a sweetheart.  She is very motivating, clearly explains the exercises, and is just very kind-hearted. I love working out with her each day.
