Hot Yoga Tips

Hey guys! I’m currently doing hot yoga and its the BEST thing E V E R! I have problems with my spine and I struggle to fall asleep at night because my back hurts so much. By the second class, I could already notice a great difference in my back. I could sleep soooo much better. Yoga is such a great experience, and the aftermath is amazing. It has many benefits, but I wont get into that right now. What I would like to share with you today is how to be prepared for class. I would like to add one thing that I had forgotten and its so important. BRING A WATER BOTTLE TO CLASS.

 

I loved this quote!

I hope you guys try yoga if you haven’t already. It’s truly amazing!

Ways to stay motivated and get that work out done


Sometimes you just don’t want to work out or eat healthy. You loose that motivation and that’s normal, it happens every now and then. I know I struggle to wake up at 5am some days to get that morning workout in.

Some ways I stay motivated 

  1. I have a Tumblr blog where I post and look at fitness pictures. (I try to look at it every morning when I wake up). It helps me a lot to get up and go to that morning crossfit class. (You can take a look, you’ll find it on my blog under blogroll. Scroll all the way down).
  2. I only buy healthy food. I have a box of organic cookies for when that sweet tooth kicks in.
  3. I read other fitness blogs and get ideas for recipes and workouts.
  4. I wash my hair only on days I work out.
  5. I say to myself only 10 minutes and if I want to leave I’ll leave. When I say that it makes me feel like no one is making me stay and it’s not something I HAVE to do, since it’s not something I HAVE to do. The feeling turns into something I WANT to do.
  6. I think about how bad and lazy and tired I’ll feel if I don’t workout. The guilt of not working out gets me up in the morning as well.

Ways to stay motivated 

  1. Make a fitness board and put it where you always see it.
  2. Having trouble going for a run? Download zombies run app. It’s a really cool app that makes it seem like your running away from zombies. With headphones on you can hear them like they were right behind you. It also has a lot of more cool features you should check it out!
  3. Wear tighter clothes. Wearing loose clothes tends to make you more comfortable and people usually tend to gain a couple of pounds.
  4. Start a hobby that helps you stay active. (Yoga,run,crossfit,bicycling,aerial yoga, pole dancing).
  5. Follow fitness blogs/Instagrams.
  6. Wash hair only on days that you work out.
  7. Buy cute leggings and tops to work out in.
  8. Wear the cute leggings and top.
  9. Try group fitness. Having other people around you striving to get fit and working out gives of a good energy and gets you pumped.
  10. Work out in the morning. When you do, you get it out of the way faster and you don’t have to think about working out the whole day which can make you start dread it.
  11. Buy a cute dress (smaller than your actual size) and hang it somewhere. Wear it when you drop the weight you want.
  12. Take pictures in your work out clothes. After that intense workout. Take a cute picture of yourself doing yoga and share it on your social media profile. Going through your social media and seeing all the cute pictures of you working out helps to stay motivated.

How do you guys stay motivated ? I would seriously love to hear! Please share.

Waist training hurts! 


Okay, even though I’m more of a eat healthy and excercise type of gal. I decided to give this waist thing a try. I purchased the A garment in small from waistgang society and I believe it was 120$. So far .. Not liking how pricy it was. But if it does its job then the price is always worth it. Today was DAY ONE and I only had it on for about 2 hours. I’m pretty sure you are supposed to have it on longer. The indications on the website said about 6 hours I think? Well, anyhow after 2 hours my whole stomach and back started to burn so I had to take it of. Not only was I not able to breathe but it was also very uncomfortable I could not bend or sit in a relaxed position. I asked waistgang if it would always be so uncomfortable, they said no, after a few wears the garment would stretch and be more flexible. Which turned out to be true, it was a LITTLE easier to sit and bend after 2 hours of wearing it.

Waist training isn’t for everyone. And so far I think it’s not for me either. BUT I’ll try it out and see how it goes (:

Has anyone ever done waist training ? If so comment and let me know your ideas, tips, experience, I would love to hear it !
