I also have been doing some weight training after Yoga class and have been slowly building up. In years past I have done some lifting but would always start up with heavy weight thinking that I am inadvisable and end up hurting myself or seeing no results. This time around I have been a lot more consistent and been doing a lot lower weight but higher reps which has helped out a lot.
The next big change in my training has been my diet. This is the first time that I have actually been watching what I am eating and not just eating what I please. I always thought I could just eat whatever I wanted because I would just burn it off training. Though I have already noticed a difference in my performance and my overall health. The hardest part so far is staying away from the desserts and soda. The desserts have been hard especially because Halloween was just a couple of days ago and I now have a full bag of candy because there were no trick-or-treaters that came by. Also, the soda has been hard to stay away from because I LOVE Mt. Dew and would find myself drinking one or two a day. Though don't get me wrong I still do have some desserts but not as often and a healthier version while I have a soda every once in a while but have cut back dramatically.
