All about Piyo

Good Morning Friends!!! 

Yesterday I was hoping to get a nice run in before it got to hot. Well that didn't happen I woke up and was ready to run my 8 a.m and it already felt like 95 degrees! Ugh remember a while back when I said I rather run in heat than cold. I might be regretting that now! HA

So instead of running I got my piyo on! 
I kept seeing this workout all over instagram. I swear like every person I follow was waiting for this workout to launch. Finally I emailed my girl Darci about it and knew I would love it! I sweat my booty off! Like almost as much when I'm running. I'm going to try and remember to wear my heart-rate monitor to see how many calories I burn. 

See our house is SUPER old (hoping to move soon!) and as much as I love this house I'm terrifed of jumping around doing crazy workouts will make it fall down. HA I know I'm crazy but it freaks me out. 

So I knew Piyo was the workout for me. 
I know everyone is going around trying to figure out what exactly it is. I know some people don't think its a hard enough workout. Trust me it is, but here's some key facts about it. 

  • PiYo is a low-impact, high-intensity body-transformation program that uses the most effective Pilates- and yoga-inspired moves to sculpt long, lean muscles and burn fat. 
  •  Trainer Chalene Johnson uses fluid movements, keeping you in constant motion to give you a dynamic cardio workout that typical Pilates or yoga workouts lack. 
  •  It's low-impact so you won't have to jump around or strain your joints. 
  •  It's high-intensity so you get the fat-burning results of a more extreme program.
  •  It's designed to help you get an intensely defined, long and lean physique.

Its really one of the best workouts I've done. There's a 60-Day Workout Calendar shows you what workouts to do when. Which I love so I don't get bored doing the same thing over and over again.

Also, I'm a new Beachbody coach so,

Miss O Turns ONE

Happy Monday Friends! 
I can not believe the weekend is over. We had a great one. Hopefully its the last weekend that Chris isn't able to walk. We have a Doctors appointment next week and we're hoping to have the o.k. to walk again. 

So I remember telling you I would post Miss O's big birthday bash with you last week and I didn't. I'm waiting for my aunt to give me a cd of all the pictures she took. I have a few on my phone but I know hers will look better but I haven't got the cd yet so I thought I'd go ahead and share the party with you. 

It was a GREAT first birthday party. Girlfriend got a TON of new toys that are taking up my living room and some cute new outfits. I was pretty surprised she didn't get cranky during the party. She wouldn't take a nap that day. Probably knew it was party day ha! 
The hubs and I are so thankful for everyone that came to help celebrate Miss O. We have some amazing family and friends. 

I bought the Happy Birthday banner here. The Olivia the Pig cutout here. Her dress was made by a friend of mine but she makes them for everyone! Go check out her Facebook page here
I made everything else. I'm pretty proud of myself, I got really crafty with this birthday! Now onto thinking about the theme for next year!

Picking Berries

Happy Wednesday Y'all! 

I've been doing this great and amazing new workout called Piyo! I know a lot of people have heard about it but guys this workout is amazing!! Deets coming soon. 

Last week I went and picking some delicious black raspberries that are in my back yard. We live in my hubs grandpas old house and a few generations back they planted some raspberry bushes. These berries are AMAZING and there are soooo many of them. 

I helped my MIL make some raspberry jam then I froze a ton of them for my smoothies. I know I will be so happy this fall/winter when I find them in the freezer. They are delicious and better than any kind of berry I can find in the store. 

Miss O enjoyed a few too! 

Happy Hump Day! 
Tomorrow I'll post all about Miss O's party! 

Turkey Taco Salad

Hello, hello, hello! 
How was your Monday? It was just another Monday over here, laundry, lots of laundry, meal prep, dinner, lots of diaper changing and we watch the MLB All-Star Home Run Derby!! 
We love baseball in this house so this was a must. 
We may have eaten some leftover cupcakes but thank goodness there are no more to eat! 
Now onto this recipe! 
Last night for dinner I made this incredible salad. 
Originally I wasn't going to fix it until tonight but I figured since its Taco Tuesday maybe I should post the recipe on Tuesday! I know I'm crazy but I thought it'd be fun! 
Tacos are probably one of my favorite meals. I love all kinda of tacos. Chicken are probably my favorite followed by fish. Also, I love a good taco salad! Usually when we have taco night at our house I end up making a salad instead. 
I thought what better thing to do than share one of my favorite meals with y'all. I'm trying to get back on the recipe kick again. I loved posting new recipes and I finally feel like I could get more of them on this little blog! 
This recipe is super easy and really doesn't take very many ingredients. I had most of them on hand. Even a few were from our garden! I hope you guys enjoy this one!
