It’s 2017, and guess who’s back? Me! I know I’ve been a little MIA due to life, but now I’m in a place where I can actually focus balancing work and a healthy lifestyle again (hooray!). Since we last spoke, I have graduated college and work full time in the “adult world”.
The adult world has some caveats though. I never realized how tiring it is to work a regular 9-5 job. One would think that since I don’t have kids (unless you count my fur-child, Munchie) that I would have all of this energy and time to do things, right? Nope. Maybe it’s part of getting older and being in a routine, but I’m exhausted. Because of that, my health did start to go down hill- not working out as much, eating as many chicken fingers as I want, etc etc. As you can probably imagine, those things don’t necessarily help.
Finally, I decided to make a change. My favorite girl who invented POP Pilates, Cassey Ho, came out with something called PIIT28, which is the pilates version of HIIT workouts (high intensity interval training)! I’ve been a follower of her usual calendars, so when I saw PIIT, I was hooked. It’s about 28 minutes of super high energy pilates- you sweat, you burn, you get sore! Along with those lovely things, you feel STRONG. I’ve been doing it for 18 days, and I can already see my abs getting distinct again. Woo hoo!
In addition to PIIT28, I started the 28 Day Reset today! It’s a meal plan that goes hand-in-hand with PIIT28. You completely omit dairy (easy for me since I’m allergic, lol), gluten, sugar, and processed grains for 28 days, then slowly re-introduce these things while keeping up healthy eating. It’s genius! She gives you a weekly calendar of meals and a grocery list, so you literally just print it and go. I also appreciate that the recipes aren’t too complicated in nature, which makes prepping meals in advance easier. Seriously, if you’re looking for a way to kickstart your body for Summer, this is where it’s at.
If you aren’t already, I definitely recommend following me on Instagram @Happy_Body_Blog! You’ll see my progress through PIIT28 and the 28 Day Reset. Also, if you want to see what these programs are all about, follow the affiliate links below!
Now in terms of my site, I am super excited to bring about some changes! I’m creating new designs and logos, along with posting twice a week along the same lines of what I’ve always done: fitness, nutrition, mindfulness, and beauty! Are you ready? I am!
Peace and love!
