Day 1- Piyo

Today marks my day 1 of doing Piyo by Beachbody! And started Shakeology. I'm a little nervous to say the least. To commit to 60 days doesn't seem like a lot but it really is. And for someone who has lost a lot of their strength, yeah I'm a little nervous.

Can you believe that a lot of my strength is gone! It is a really funny thing. Right after you have a baby, any strength you had in your arms, legs and core are just GONE! I have no idea why (except for the core, being stretched as much as it was, I get that one.) But arms and legs so weird. So I have a lot of strength to build up in my legs and arms over the next 6 weeks.

What I'm looking forward to most, is my core strength. I have never really worked on core strength and I keep hearing over and over how great it is to work on for runners. We need a stable core for proper running stance. But I have a little extra fluff in my tummy from both kids and I am looking forward to that going down a bit!

So here we go! I will have a weekly recap of how it is going so stay tuned!


  1. I am definitely curious about PiYo! I look forward to seeing what you think of it!

  2. I'm really excited for you! Starting something new is always hard, but you're getting up and doing it! And I've really noticed a difference in my running since I started working on my course 6 weeks ago. It's a huge help!

  3. I live in a bubble and hadn't heard of PiYo, so I'm hoping you can report on whether or not it is safe for someone with significant back issues. I know I need to crosstrain, but finding safe, new options is sometimes challenging. (I run, walk, do yoga on my own, and have done Pure Barre and Jazzercize classes.)

    1. They have a person do modified positions the whole time so if a pose doesn't feel all that good it can be modified. And she says anytime you need to rest go to child's pose. My back has been super tight and hurting and even after today's little bit with leaning and some stretching it feels so good! But I will keep you posted as tomorrow the speed is kicked up!
