Get Your Kitchen Ready for PiYo!

piyo food Get Your Kitchen Ready for PiYo!

Happy Monday lovelies! I know there are so many of you out there starting PiYo or getting ready to start later this month. So, today I wanted to share with you how to get your kitchen ready for PiYo!

Your results from any fitness program or exercise you do are 80% nutrition, 20% fitness. Mind blowing right?! I always thought if I just worked out really hard I could lose weight (before I lost 60 lbs). I would literally take diet pills, eat like crap, drink a ton of alcohol, but workout & expect it to work. After losing that weight & learning a lot more about nutrition, I still didn’t understand the importance of this until last year. So because of all my struggles I’ve been through, I want to help you get your kitchen ready for PiYo.

I know that this part can be the most overwhelming. If you’re like me, you hate to cook. I love food, but cooking I mean who enjoys that?! LOL. Plus I keep so busy that it feels there’s no time for it. BUT I have embraced meal planning & prepping even though I hate it. Because it helps keep me on track, only takes a couple hours to do, & helps me feel stress free during the week when I’m busy because I can just grab & go.

So you may be thinking, “well how do I make time for it? I barely have time to sleep.” Well, I will just say that it’s all about priorities. You will make time for what’s a priority to you. So if you want to lose weight, get healthy, or get those abs that are hiding (like mine do so often :P) then you’ll figure it out. Take an hour off your time watching TV or playing Facebook games & just make it happen. So here’s how to get your kitchen ready for PiYo!

1. Figure out your daily caloric needs & then pick out recipes

2. Write out in a planner your meals for the week

3. Take an hour to meal prep everything for the week

I know this seems daunting, but I promise you once you do it you will feel so much better.

I also wanted to give you some of my meal ideas:

Breakfast
Egg white & veggie omelette with a slice of cinnamon raisin Ezekiel bread
Oatmeal & egg white & veggie omelette
Oatmeal with Shakeology (chocolatey & full of protein!)

Lunch
Strawberry, avocado, spinach & chicken salad
Turkey sandwich with veggies
Taco salad

Dinner
Turkey chili
Tilapia tacos
Chicken fajitas

Snacks
Almonds
Fruit
Veggies & hummus
Shakeology

Here is also a video that I made explaining things in more detail if you prefer listening. 

These are just a few tips from the beginning of my PiYo journey. Today starts week 2 & I am SO IN LOVE with this program!! So I will DEF be sharing more tips with you as I go!

What is PiYo?

PiYo Flier What is PiYo?

So if you follow Beachbody or Chalene Johnson or me, you will know that I ADORE Chalene Johnson!!! My first experience ever was Chalean Extreme & it helped me gain self confidence (& muscles!) like I never had before. Her workouts are so much fun & I looked forward to them every day!! I never had tone like that in my life. So when Beachbody announced that they’ll be launching another Chalene Johnson home fitness program I got STOKED!!! It’s an awesome combination of low impact moves that help improve your flexibility, stamina, & strength. It is yoga & pilates inspired, but there is also some cardio in there as well.
The BEST part is that it gives you results such as defined muscles, abs, & core strength WITHOUT the weights & pounding of your joints from jumping around. It’s perfect for those with mobility or joint limitations due to injury or past experiences. 
So why do I think that Piyo is going to be an AMAZING program to have?!

Because it is unlike ANYTHING else out there! You will still get in a cardio workout without the stress on your joints. You’ll have Chalene’s awesome motivating positive  personality encouraging you every day in the comfort of your own home. You’ll feel the burn for days after!! After each 35 minute workout, you will be sweating & your booty will be burning! But without bouncing around, jumping, or doing crazy complex moves. It’s all about controlled movement that energizes you.
I have been asked before why we don’t have a yoga series with Beachbody. Well this is it! This is going to be a GAME CHANGER for so many people who love yoga & want to be able to do it from home.
Check out a sneak peak of it here!

Strive for Progress Not Perfection

progress Strive for Progress Not Perfection
As I mentioned the other day on Facebook, I had  an off week last week with my eating. I had some left over snacks from a girls night at my apartment that I wouldn’t normally keep here. I had a snack attack several nights this week & missed my workout yesterday. But, it’s all about progress not perfection.But instead of beating myself up, I focused on how far I’ve come & the healing God is giving me. If this would’ve been me just a few months ago, I would’ve been on my bathroom floor crying & probably with a spoon & a jar of cookie butter (it’s like crack, don’t buy it). Again, progress not perfection!

But this week I instead accepted the fact that I was human & celebrated the fact that it was only half a jar of peanut butter I consumed (that’s a lot I know, but I’m just being real). And I got right back to eating healthy on a Saturday out of all days! Strive for progress not perfection! 

Normally I would’ve been like, “yeah I will wait till Monday it’s the weekend,” because I knew I had a lot planned with friends & stuff going on at church. But I instead made healthy choices being out the entire weekend. I feel almost back to normal!

I say all this to say that I’m not where I want to be (my abs have gone in to hiding after this week lol), but I sure as hell ain’t where I used to be! I’m not in fetal position with sweets, I’m sipping my Shakeology enjoying the sunshine instead. 

So strive for progress, not perfection peeps! No more beating yourself up because I care about you!
