Tip #2 .. Hydrate yourself so you don't pass out. So embarrassing! I personally have not had this happen, but felt like I have come close. So accessorize with a cute water bottle of sorts with your fave electrolytes and throw a power bar in your bag.
Tip #3 .. Get your own yoga mat. Seriously. You do not want to be sharing random mats with other sweaty peeps. Eww.Tip #4 .. Go at your own pace. I have learned that if I try to keep up with the instructor who does this job for a living, I will trip and fall in the middle of the class for all to see. Yeah. I don't want to be that girl. So, I use weights I am comfortable with and don't always use the step in class. My pace, my level, don't care who is watching.
And Tip #5 ... Mix it Up! Have fun! And go with a friend! Try new classes and grab your gilfrends to go along. If the class is a little over your head, at least you have someone to laugh with! I love hittin' the gym with my sis-in-law. She is definitely more advanced than I, but we have a great time!
I am definitely loving the new lifestyle change I have goin' on. I honestly didn't think that this resolution would last this long and be so life-altering. I am hoping this momentum continues. I feel great, my body is looking great, my stamina and energy levels are awesome, and I am so less crabby! We will see where I am at in another couple months, but I am loving the new me right now.
How are your goals coming along? What is keeping you on track? Have you already lost a few goals along the way?
