Piyo Week 2 Meal Plan and Progress Update
Wow, I can’t believe I have just finished week 2 of Piyo! Time flies when you’re having fun 🙂
So, what did I think of Piyo so far?
I’ll admit, there are days where I wonder if it’s working. I’m so used to pushing myself to the maximum; lifting heavy, doing crazy Insanity workouts, and sweating like bullets. It’s been a challenge to slow down and be present in each workout so I can really concentrate to make sure I push myself and get the maximum benefit from the workouts. However, I do feel more definition in my core this week!
This week was great because we got to add in a new workout, Core! Oh my, it was awesome core work. It worked EVERY angle of my core. My 2 favourite workouts so far are Sweat and Core. I absolutely love working my core, because after having 3 kids in under 3 years, my tummy isn’t that strong, so I need all the help I can get!
Since the Define: Upper Body and Define: Lower Body are quite short, I actually like to add in some quick T25 cardio afterwards. What can I say, I like to sweat a little more on those days!
Since I’m doing this in the summertime, we do have a lot going on with family activities. We also have BBQ’s to attend, so temptation is everywhere! I didn’t miss any workouts, and I stuck to the meal plan for breakfast, lunch, and snacks. For dinner, I made the best choices possible from what was available. I did end up having one dessert and a few of my kid’s fries..but overall I did well considering, and I’m not losing sight of the overall plan.
The hardest part about Piyo is that you don’t burn a ton of calories, so sticking to your servings each day is critical if you want to see results. I have to eat more protein and less carbs on this plan, which isn’t easy for me…I LOVE my carbs, what can I say?!
Here is my meal plan for week 2! I follow it as best I can, but some nights I have to switch around dinners, just depending on who’s home for dinner that night or what our plans are. But having the plan definitely empowers me to feel in control of my food choices.
I LOVE a good salad! I like to use eggs instead of chicken sometimes, because with seven servings of protein required, chicken can get a little boring if ya know what I mean 😉 So I have to get creative. For the dressing, I use a tsp of olive oil and a bunch of balsamic vinegar since it’s a “free” food.
