I’ve always had an issue with keeping a healthy lifestyle. It’s definitely one of the personal issues that I’ve dealt with all of my life. However, I recently figured out that the formula that works for me is taking small steps…literally and figuratively. I’ve been reaching more for the door to go outside and walk instead of the remote control and I’ve also been weening myself off of too much fast food, sodas, and processed food. It’s beginning to pay off, too. I’m starting to feel more energized and eager to try more ways to keep moving.
The next small step I want to try is yoga. I haven’t tried yoga in the past, but I’ve always wanted to try it. I wanted to take a yoga class in college, but couldn’t work it around my schedule and instead took a walking course to fulfill my physical fitness requirement. Yes, a class that requires you to walk is a real thing in a real college, but I digress. Still, I wanted to take yoga.
So, this past weekend I tried yoga for the first time and I instantly felt so relaxed and my muscles felt loose and limber. For the past few months, my mind has been all over the place with work and family situations and yoga has really helped me regroup and clear my mind. I loved it and plan to try to find and take some yoga classes. However, first…I need some appropriate yoga clothes.
I have plenty of sports bras and tees and a few yoga pants, but I need some yoga tees and yoga shorts and found plenty on SweatyBetty.com. SweatyBetty.com is this amazing online retailer that focuses on providing great clothing options for an active lifestyle. I love their purpose:
“To inspire women to find empowerment through fitness.”
I actually believe and agree with that statement. Once you truly begin to live a better lifestyle that involves fitness, you feel a sense of invincible. Personally, I feel like I can go conquer so many other tasks, physical and mental, when I leave and rest after a nice workout. So, I’m all about the Sweat Betty’s purpose and it doesn’t hurt that they offer a nice selection of cute, functional, and affordable fitness wear and gear.
Above, you can see a few pieces that I scoped from Sweat Betty that I wouldn’t mind adding to my less than full fitness drawer. That harem skirt has just been ordered and is currently on its way to me!
