BUT...I have to agree with what I said in yesterday's post. I believe this PiYo program is going to help with my strength and flexibility and get me back to where I need to be and back at the gym where I can really push myself once more. And in all fairness to the PiYo program, I do believe that once I'm in better condition I cant totally see how you can push within these moves as well. There's plenty of opportunity to take the stretches to the next level and I look forward to one day being able to do that. Right now it's once again about modifying and I'm still getting the stretch, I'm feeling it because I'm able to push myself within that modification. Hence, the drenching sweat.
Throughout the routine, I couldn't stop thinking about how I still somehow need to add in the cardio. Maybe it's getting out and walking before or after (1 mile through the neighborhood) or hopping on the exercise bike after a routine when I'm all warmed up. Or maybe it's hitting the gym for 30-40 mins on my way home from work! Or maybe I should do it all?? YOu can't see me, but I'm nodding my head as I write this because that's exactly what I should be doing. It's time to make it happen. I've done it before now I need to make it stick.
So....I'm going to enjoy this holiday weekend, get my head back in the game - which in this case is making my grocery list and sticking to my meal prep and plan this time - and be ready to take this head on starting Monday. I will come up with a cardio schedule and stick to that too. It's all about the planning.
No effort, no results.
