My 60 Days of PiYo: Day #3

Follow me on my health journey as I follow the PiYo exercise program! | 60 days of PiYo: Day #3 | Yummy in my Clean Tummy

THOUGHTS OF THE DAY

Overall today was good.  I almost talked myself out of exercising this morning, but I’m proud that I still did it.  I went to bed later than usual last night because I had a creative streak and started working on a new logo for the blog.  Next thing I knew it was close to midnight, and I forced myself to go to bed.  But when the alarm went off at 5:30am, I turned it off and slept for another hour.  I was so tempted to do my typical “oh, I’ll just exercise later today” and reminded myself that every time I say that I never actually work out.  So I got out of bed, went to the bathroom, drank some water, put on a sports bra and worked out in my pajama pants.  The nice thing about doing PiYo is I don’t have to leave my house or put on shoes! 

Upper body workouts have never really been a favorite of mine.  Like most women, I have stronger legs but hardly any upper body strength.  So when it came time to do Tricep Pushups, the PiYo Pike and the PiYo Flip, I struggled a lot!  But I tried, and that’s all that matters, right?  My goal is that by the end of these 60 days I can do the pushups and pike without being on my knees and the flip without falling on my butt!

The good news is that I can tell I have worked out the last couple of days.  My abs and legs are slightly sore, and I’m sure my arms will be tomorrow, but is it weird to say that it feels great and motivates me to continue?  I’m sure I’m not the only one who feels like that, right?

Food wise, I’m doing pretty good, although I may have snuck in an extra homemade baked french fry or two tonight, because they were sooooooo good 😉  I am surprised that I haven’t wanted an afternoon snack the last 2 days.  But I have eaten my lunch a little later, and my dinner a little earlier, so I haven’t really wanted to eat anything in between.  I’m sure I’m still eating enough calories for my body frame, so I feel confident in my eating.  Plus, I’m pretty proud of myself that yesterday and today I haven’t snuck in some little dark chocolate that I have hiding in the back of my pantry (it’s Enjoy Life’s no added sugar and dairy free chocolate – which is paleo approved!).
