PiYo

PiYo_logo_COO_1024x1024
Today started off like any other day. Got the kids ready, headed out to our Thursday church Connect Group (got kids settled in for their church playtime), had a great time, headed home,  tucked everyone in for their naps, hopped on the computer w/ my free moment, and BAM.  I see that PiYO (Beachbody’s newest fitness program) was JUST released….ahead of schedule! Right now, Beachbody’s annual convention is going on in Vegas. I “wish” I was there to take part in all the trainings, certifications, info sessions, and pick up loads of amazingly cool gear only available there – at Summit, BUT I know that my heart wouldn’t have been there – leaving a nursing 4 month old behind (or in a hotel room) along with my 2 and 3 year olds (who I think would do just fine but “I” would have separation anxiety from for sure!)  But I digress.  Anyways, I checked into the live stream (so I can at least stay up to date with all the latest business happenings) and got the inside scoop that PiYO was released TODAY!

SO, I’m sure you’re wondering – “what the heck is PiYo?” I know I would be thinking that for sure….  Basically, it’s a 60 day, low-impact but high intensity workout that combines pilates and yoga to sculpt long, lean muscles and burn fat.  Unlike “traditional” yoga or pilates movements where you have to hold positions forever, PiYo’s movements flow into one another with no time lapses in between. These fluid movements help you burn calories faster – and get much quicker results.  It’s a total body workout, developed by the amazing, supportive, energetic, beautiful trainer Chalene Johnson, that will not only help you to elongate your body, but will also help to increase your balance and flexibility. Did I mention you don’t even have to wear shoes (you can wear cross trainers if you prefer though) and can do it from the comfort of you own living room floor? WIN.

Could it be right for you?  This workout would be great for someone who: – doesn’t want to exercise w/ equipment or weights – lives above someone else and can’t be making all sorts of noise by jumping around to exercise (ever had the neighbor who pounded on the wall to tell you to be quiet?) – has joint issues (this workout is low-impact so that stress is taken off your joints) – is already muscular and looking to elongate their physique or improve flexibility – is looking to tone, tighten, and elongate their muscles/body If you fall into any one of those categories, this could be the perfect fit for you!

So, what will you get with your workout? – 8 workouts, each ranging from 25-45 mins long – starter guide – Get Lean eating plan – 60 day workout calendar – tape measurer to track your progress – FREE bonus workout DVD (by ordering through me) – ME as your coach 🙂 AND, when you purchase the workout NOW through the end of JULY in a discounted Challenge Pack (comes with your complete PiYo workout AND a month’s supply of Shakeology), there’s an introductory SPECIAL price for an even better DEAL (and I’m aaaaaall about the deal…). The regular price of this discounted challenge pack is $160, but through July, it’s being offered at the introductory price of $140.  The hype for this product is already HUGE and if it’s anything like the 21 Day Fix that was just released in February, it’s bound to sell out within the first few days!

SO, with all that being said. Are you in? Are you ready to commit to improving your nutrition with Shakeology? Looking to increase your flexibility and strengthen, tone, and elongate those muslces?  Ready to get started NOW?  Click HERE to order. I’ll be starting a July PiYo Challenge Group, and anyone who orders through me will get the opportunity to join in on it!

Again, both of these Challenge Packs include a month’s supply of Shakeology – your daily dose of dense nutrition. This superfood shake includes 70+ ingredients sourced from all over the world into a tasty, vitamin and nutrient packed shake that will help to cleanse and detox your body while supplying a boost of energy in a natural, non-artificial, organic way. *Say that 3X’s fast! lol…* Shakeology alone is regularly $129.95/month, so getting either of these Challenge Packs at $160 or $140 respectively is a FANTASTIC deal!…it’s like getting the workout programs for $30 for INSANITY or just $10 for the Dance Challenge if you were already planning on getting Shakeology anyways.

Ready to make a change and UP your fitness?!  If you’re perhaps already an athlete and looking at improving your conditioning , or wanting to finally get that muscle definition you’ve always wanted, or just ready to go all in and give it your all – INSANITY may be just the program for you!  Click HERE for more info or to order.  If you prefer a workout more geared around tightening your core (get that 6-pack!) with great, energetic, upbeat DANCE music, then Shaun T’s Dance Challenge Pack may be right up your alley! Click HERE for more info on it or to order.

These specials are good for all of June, but remember, the quicker you order, the quicker you’ll receive your program and be able to get your butt in gear!

 

7 days out!

Well, my 1st week as a mommy of THREE has officially come to a close. And I must say, having Marv back from his deployment has been a HUGE help! Not only am I loving having HIM back and enjoying his company and companionship, but he’s also able to take care of the two “big” kids while I can focus on little Monroe.

So, since I’m no longer pregnant, I decided to do another video  – “Post Baby Fitness – Part 2” – going a tiny bit more in depth with things I did during pregnancy to keep me active, and how I’m doing now at 7 days post partum:

 

Basically, here’s what I’ve done during this pregnancy:
– KEPT busy! Got involved more with crafting (did a craft fair), sold some of those crafts on Etsy (hats and jewelry),  started sewing, made kids Halloween costumes, playdates, playgrounds, etc.
– Joined Beachbody and started Shakeology while 6 months pregnant
– Tried to stay active walking – going on daily walks with the kids around the neighborhood and also intentionally parking farther while out doing errands
– LOW impact exercise (mainly watching and preparing myself mentally for when I’d be able to physically do those exercises in the months to come)
– my daily Shakeology seriously cut down on any junk food and sweets cravings I had and all I wanted to eat were “clean” things like fruits, veggies, and whole, healthy foods. I was therefore eating much healthier this pregnancy than I was during my other 2, allowing me to gain HEALTHY pounds with great quality nutrients instead of just “weight”.
– AND – I should also throw in there – taking care of 2 kids who love their mama…and love for me to pick them up….constantly, lol. My arms got some serious workouts holding my 23lb 2 year old, and my 33 lb 3.5 year old. Who needs to lift weights when you have kids, right?

7 days out, I physically feel fantastic and just about 99% of my “normal” self.  I credit this in LARGE part to my daily Shakeology shakes in addition to staying active, getting outside and MOVING! 🙂  Ready for the scary part?! Well….for me anyways. Since I’m trying to be real here, and prove how confident I am with crediting Shakeology to helping me physically bounce back after having my 3rd baby…….here’s some photo proof!

Here’s me the day before I gave birth (yes…I helped my husband hang our new garage “gym” mirror…that thing is HUGE!):

The next morning, leaving for the hospital since my little Monroe decided to make her appearance:

Just about 5 hours later, welcoming little Monroe into the world (entirely all natural!):

2 days Post Partum at the hospital just before we were all discharged to go home:

AND….scaaaary…..me this morning at exactly 7 days post partum (almost down to the hour)…I normally NEVER show this much skin unless I’m at the beach, so, scary! :

Anyways, every ‘body’ is different, every pregnancy is different, but this was my experience during this 3rd pregnancy and what I did that kept me healthy and active during it that I feel really contributed to my overall wellness now, 1 week after having Monroe.
