This is me about 6ish months pregnant
This is me about a month after giving birth at my friends Tea party shower - see my awesome vintage hat?
This is me on Day 2 after Phillip was born
So What I'm Doing?
P90X, walking with the kids, My Fitness Pal App and a Workout App called Workout Trainer (great workouts when you want to spice things up). I've also decided to add in SlimQuick. It worked out well for me the last time. They have reformulated it so I'm excited to try it out this time. It may not be what everyone would do or likes, but that's what I'm doing for me. I really love that it is formulated just for women and helps with other issues. Stress is a huge part of my life and I'll be the first to tell you Stress Management is not something that I have under control. One of my bloggy friends who I had the awesome opportunity to meet blogged about something similar - stress and anxiety (which I have in spades). Her blog is amazing and you should take the time to check it out. But anyway, she absolutely saved me when she talked about visiting her doctor and the symptoms that appear on your body when you are stressed out to the max. Having a baby, surgery, moving across the country all in like 3 1/2 months? yipes!
So in honor of starting out I have a review for you. It's an awesome cool Yoga Mat. If you are friends with me off line you may have heard me talk about the fact that I loathe yoga. I really do. Seriously! I just can't get into it. I find it absolutely maddening (anxiety and stress much! LOL). But I wanted to start fresh with this Yoga thing, and really get into it. So when I was given the opportunity to review a product for Aurorae Yoga I jumped at it. The perfect motivator!
I tried out the Aurorae Northern Lights yoga mat.
It is a great yoga mat and I'm excited about it furthering my new friendship with Yoga. It is also just as beautiful as it looks in the pictures. You can purchase the mat on sale for $39.95 (reg 59.95). Now I don't profess to know too much about Yoga mats. I've tried a cheaper mat before and I've got to tell you there really is now comparison with the comfort and support I felt when I tried out the Aurorae mat for the first time, and I have bad, picky feet. So take that for what it's worth. I love it! Aurorae has tons of other products as well including two other yoga mat types, bags, mat spray, rosin, and other tools to help make your yoga experience good. Their customer service was wonderful and you can easily order from them through Amazon! Yahooooo! I'm a fan of easy. If you are in the market for an awesome yoga mat check out Aurorae products.
And since this is a crazy kid house, what better way to show off the mat then to share the pictures my 6 year old took of me using it while my 3 yr old pranced around with her pink blanket trying to steal my picture thunder. Yes, we apparently have no shame in this house
