Hey friends! I realized this week that I haven’t given an update on my PIYO Progress. As I write this, I am beginning Week 7of my PIYO journey which means that I am less than two weeks from completing what could be my favorite Beachbody program!
Crazy, right? I finish PIYO the same week I finish chemotherapy treatments. And I am already wondering what in the world will be my next journey. Hmmmm….suggestions!?!?!
So here are some reasons I LOVE PIYO:
1. I am seeing crazy results especially in my core.
2. My strength has increased
3. Holy flexibility
4. It does a body good to switch up the routine!
5. Um no jumping or intense cardio BUT amazing results
Who do I recommend this program to?
1. Anyone looking to change it up
2. Anyone looking to START a program
LOL. You get the idea right! I think my favorite workout is SWEAT. Sweat, is a 36 minute workout that mixes upper, lower and core work. I leave my “gym” knowing I got in a killer workout. And each time I do this workout, I notice small changes in my strength. I can hold a pose a little longer. I can dig a little deeper into my stretch. It’s awesome to see improvements like this!
On a more personal note, 12 rounds of chemotherapy are not easy. It takes a toll on your strength, your mindset, and your body. It isn’t easy to complete a workout program, but in reality, if I can do it…WHY CAN’T YOU.
Sometimes we need to hush that voice in our mind that says we can’t. We need to quiet the excuses and focus on our WHY. I could’ve viewed these last seven months as a setback and used it as a chance to slack. Instead, I embraced it. I set goals. I went for it. On more than once occasion I cried because I just couldn’t do what I once could. But I picked myself up- quit the pity party and kept going.
Your journey to health and wellness isn’t a straight shot. There are bumps and twists and turns. There are setbacks. But look at the BIG picture. I am stronger today than I was seven months ago: mentally and physically. Do you quit when you don’t see results fast enough or do you use it as motivation to push harder?
Stay tuned for my results!!!
