It’s been a little more than 30 days since I took the PiYo challenge.
In total I lost 9 lbs, and a bunch of inches (including 2 from my waist), but something more important happened – I re-sparked my passion.
After hurting my foot, I was disappointed in myself and in pain. My body failed me, after so much training – physical & mental – my body broke down. I gained weight. I pretended to stop caring. I had no way to manage my stress since anytime I did a workout my foot would hurt. I turned into a mean human, and my reaction to benign things would sometimes shock me.
So, at the height of my frustration, I signed up for the 30 day challenge, and figured the cost would hold me accountable.
Quickly I realized, it was the community that came along with it.
I woke up, unrolled my yoga mat, and popped in a DVD the first day, and got surprisingly sweaty in my living room. I never knew that an at home workout program could do that. Thanks to the B You Fitness group, I was able to chat with people every single day and share a #sweatyselfie and chat about the craziest moves we learned that day.
Soon after, I fell in love with how I was feeling. I cared more about what I was eating. I was able to calm my mind a little bit more. The more I checked in, the more I kept MYSELF accountable. And with that, the more I saw results.
I’m currently right now in the 2nd 30 days of PiYo (the full PiYo program is 60 days) and I am so grateful to Julie for introducing me to it. It’s truly allowed me to start my day on a positive note, and once that happens, it’s hard to ruin the rest of the day.
