tip of the dayHey 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?

3. Anyone
4. Anyone
5. Anyone

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!!!
