Move FlowLIFT to the Top 3 Priorities of Your Week
Doing a fitness challenge is all about maintaining a commitment to yourself for a certain amount of time. Doing our yoga workouts online three times a week has to become a priority. It has to become a non-negotiable act that you can’t do without – like brushing your teeth or sleeping. So what does this mean? For one, you have to move your workout to the top three priorities you check off every single week. Since the class is only forty-five minutes, you can definitely fit it in, you just might have to get a little creative. Maybe one day you get up at 5:30am and make it happen, maybe another day you FlowLIFT at night with the kids or roomies. Three times a week isn’t that much; the toughest part is carving out the time and getting on your mat.
Getting Fast Results Doing Our Yoga Workouts Online Requires Three Things:
- Committing to a schedule and recovering any slip-ups is your number one tool for fighting excuses. Being consistent is very important. Look excuses in the face and fight through. Your workouts will not be missed, come hell or high water. Pro Tip: Put the three workouts in your calendar for the week and treat each of them like a very important meeting that can’t be moved, postponed or skipped. Work your entire schedule around these workouts. Of course we’re not perfect and things come up, so if you do miss a workout make sure you reschedule it and make it happen. Sunday night can’t roll around without you having completed your three workouts for the week.
- Try Your Hardest. As Amanda says, you have to dig deep for this class because it’s certainly far from easy. Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned FlowLIFT pro, this class never gets easier, but it does get smoother. Your body and brain will begin to work together more efficiently. You’ll get stronger and leaner, and but you have to try hard, really, really hard. Most people don’t want to work hard, and that’s why they never progress. They stagnate and never achieve their fitness goals. You’re not one of those people, though, not anymore. Pro Tip: You don’t have to move as fast as the teacher. To modify the moves do half the reps and focus on good alignment with proper muscle engagement. Keep going even though the body gets tired; it’s those last few reps that really pack a punch. Find motivation in how the students and teachers work hard in class and envision yourself with us at our studio Buddhi Yoga in La Jolla, CA.
- Take Inventory of Bad Eating Habits. The first step towards big changes is acknowledging your pitfalls and bad habits. We all have them. Mine is a penchant for chilli lollipops, rice, kettle corn, and Colombian coconut candy. If it’s in the house I’ll eat it, therefore I try not to stock those deliciously evil treats too often. Maybe yours is drinking a glass of wine or two with dinner or getting a cinnamon bun for breakfast every day. Whatever it is, write down all the things you indulge in every week that are a detriment to your fitness goal. When we can see it all written out it helps us process and visualize what we need to do to create change. We don’t have to take these things out of our lives forever, but experiment and see what happens when you practice restraint and self control.
