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:
Egg white & veggie omelette with a slice of cinnamon raisin Ezekiel bread
Oatmeal & egg white & veggie omelette
Oatmeal with Shakeology (chocolatey & full of protein!)
Strawberry, avocado, spinach & chicken salad
Turkey sandwich with veggies
Veggies & hummus
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!
