Not Sweatin' It

I don't sweat, really. And this isn't some girly "I don't sweat, I perspire" thing either. I think a lot of it is that I don't usually drink enough water which I am not proud of. My mom isn't a sweater either (insert lame apparel joke here), maybe it's genetic. I've digressed.

The yoga I've been doing is hot yoga, not Bikram, just hot. And I still don't sweat except through the pads of hands and the bottoms of my feet. Let me tell you it is desperately awkward, I am slipping and sliding all over the mat. I don't like it.

  1. As a heavy sweater -- and by heavy I mean more sweat than 300 pound hairy man in the Sahara -- I envy you. I break a sweat carrying my laundry basket up the stairs. I break a sweat making dinner. And lawd help us all when I'm exercising -- that's more like 'please tell me you just took a shower 'cause you're soaked' sweat.

  2. Aw, I can definitely see the draw backs, but sweating is healthy! think of all the water you are NOT retaining.

  3. Are there sock-like things (I'm imagining something with textured or lightly treaded soles) you could wear that might help? Or would they be in the way?

  4. You are suppose to practice barefoot - I am hoping my body adapts quickly and starts sweating somewhere normal - or maybe the back of my knees or something ;)

  5. I'm a lot like Bridget. Sometimes I'll break into a sweat doing absolutely nothing. It's like... spontaneous sweat-sation.

    Socks? On The Deidre? That's what she said. *padum-pum-psssssh. Thank you New York, GOOD NIGHT!

    Nike makes these awesome mats with like, non-skid grips on one side. I was thinking of getting one but i haven't yoga-ed in months.

  6. oooh - a grippy sticky mat would be awesome. My mat is brand new so its still a little slippery.

    HAHA that is totally what she said.

  7. Oops, I feel like I missed something there. :)

    But if the grippy mat would achieve the same thing and be acceptable cheating, I'd say go for it if you don't adapt first!
