Today I did Define Lower Body to get my hip stretched out. I think I pushed it a little too hard on my run yesterday. I followed that up with Hard Core on the Floor. That was amazing! It's 30 minutes of ab-burning hell. lol. But I never once thought that I couldn't complete finish it out.
I'm so glad I have PiYo to pull out of my back pocket whenever I get a little sore. Before my workout I could barely put weight on my hip. Now I just feel a little twinge but it's bearable. I do anything I can to avoid taking anti-inflammatories. PiYo has proven time and again to be the perfect tonic.
Less than 2 weeks before I leave for Ireland. I can't believe it!! Hubs just rented a luxury cab service to pick us up from home, so we'll be starting our trip in style. Saying our goodbyes at home will also be less traumatic for us and our 2 year old Matthew. It's going to be so hard saying goodbye to our precious peanut, but we know he'll be in good hands.
I hope you all are having a successful Tuesday!

Honestly, I suffered this weekend. My good eating habits went out the window and I didn't do any of the PiYo workouts. Turns out, the medicine I started taking to start my cycle early did what it was supposed to do. That would explain why I was craving carbs like crazy throughout the weekend and felt so tired and unmotivated. It explains my behavior but it doesn't justify it.
TOday it ends. I will be going out for a run with my friend. Hopefully we'll cram 5miles in today. I packed a healthy lunch box full of GOOD carbs and proteins. I had my Shakeology this morning which gave me a good boost. I skipped the nutrient-dense meal on Saturday and Sunday. I could really tell the difference. My friend gave me a great recipe to ttry that uses a tbsp of butterscotch instant pudding mix. It makes the chocolate shake taste like a butterfinger. Nom nom nom. I'll let you know how that goes!
I leave for Ireland in 12 days. I'm soooo excited. It's almost surreal. We've been planning for 6 months and we're finally less than 2 weeks away. It's amazing.
I'm definitely going to need a prgram when I return to get my head back in the game. I've been looking into the 21 Day Fix program. A lot of my friends have had amazing success with it, some losing as much as 15lbs! The portion control containers are just what I need to learn how to measure the perfect portions for my meals. It sounds kind of time consuming, measuring everything, but it's necessary to get results. I don't do enough of it, frankly because it is so time consuming. But the containers will help speed up the process and take all of the guess work out of it.
Is anyone else interested in being my accountability partner for this program? I'll probably start in September, after everyone gets back from vacation.
I hope you all are having a successful start to your week.
