It appears I have jumped on the band-wagon with the PiYo craze. I’m really looking forward to starting it. I miss working out. I miss having the great achy feeling of accomplishment in the morning. I miss sweat. It’s really had to find time to get a work out in when Drew’s away. It would cost me an arm and a leg, I’d have to find a sitter and pay for the class. Yoga classes aren’t cheap and either is a babysitter. Time to find an alternative way to get fit.
I’m not really good at the whole self motivation thing. I can’t just go and do yoga in my living room. I guess I feed off of other peoples energy. I like group actives but I like to do them independently. Yoga and pilaties work great for me.
Now I just have to wait 1-2 weeks for my DVDs to arrive. Come on sail mail!
I’m excited. This is something I get to do for myself. Something I can work on when everyone else has gone to bed. Its ‘Me’ time.
Before I became a Mum, I could go for a run any time. I could take a yoga class when ever I pleased. I was working towards a goal (half marathon, training for a full marathon). Running. Class. Gym. Something. This is the first time in a very long time that I have just sat. Yes I am running around after a speedy little toddler, but it’s not the same.
I have read a lot of really good reviews about PiYo, I’ve also read some not so great ones too. But that didn’t do it for me. Those can be mmmm tailored I suppose and not always 100% accurate. Apparently I know a couple girls who do PiYo, they really like it, they are Mum’s as well and they say it’s perfect during nap time or once the wee ones are in bed. They see results and feel good.
So in 1-2 weeks I will start my PiYo journey and I’m really looking forward to it!
