All of these projects around the house over the last couple of years have told me plenty about the state of my body. While carrying heavy loads, digging trenches and long days spent on my knees weeding out planters would take its toll on even the fittest of humans, the fact that I have all but neglected my health in favor of well... other things, has magnified all of the aches and pains one might typically experience. I can not solely rely on ice packs and emergency chiropractor visits to get me through all the DIY I love so much around here.
So last night, I did good by myself and gave yoga another shot. The first day of class is always awkward, isn't it? Bad form, the wrong clothes, the items forgotten back at home... I quickly realized I was ill-prepared. Sometimes the right equipment really makes all the difference.
I spotted a couple of items over at Lululemon that I think will help me get more out of my yoga experience. I love all of the different cuts and colors offered.
I think I'll also get back on the elliptical machine that is collecting dust out in the garage. Some new trainers just might help kick me into high gear. These minty fresh Nikes are calling my name.
What about you? Is there one thing that makes working out for you just a little easier to bear?
