Yoga Design Lab - Premium Yoga Mat w/ Strap Review.

Full Disclosure: I received products free of charge for the purpose of providing a review. My opinions are completely my own based on my experience.

I'm happy to report that I'm coming out of my running funk (Enough Is Enough Is Enough), and I'm mixing my workouts up a little. What does this mean?

Well, I'm lowering the mileage. My goal is to hit between 20-25 miles per week. This may or may not include a long run. I plan to do a longer run once a week, but that longish run might be in the 6-8 mile range. I'm going to play it by ear.

But it also means I'm adding cross training to my workout routines. I plan to add spin once a week, maybe a pool workout, strength training 2-3 times per week, and yoga at least once or twice a week.

So you can imagine my excitement when I had the opportunity to test out the Yoga Design Lab - Premium Yoga Mat.

My first thought was that it was super durable. Lil Man got it it before I did, and he carried it around, dropped it, rolled on it, and actually 'tested' it out before I did. And let's say it held up well. 

I liked that it seemed very long. I am short, but I had room to stretch out and then some. Lil Man and I were both able to use the mat at the same time to do 'loga' as he calls it. And I liked the thickness. It was thick enough to protect me from the floor, but not so thick that I would sink too far into the foam. 

It was easy to wipe down, easy to roll up, and the straps were perfect for carrying it back and forth. All in all, I would give the Yoga Design Lab Premium Mat with Strap 5 stars.  I feel this is a superior mat for floor exercises, and I would definitely recommend it to friends. 

I plan to get many workouts in with this mat. If you are in the market for a yoga mat, I recommend the Yoga Design Labs mat. 

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Self Care Is Not Selfish It's Necessary

It's not selfish to take care of yourself. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. And I'll say it just one more time in case you didn't hear me. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. I have found through experience that when I'm not taking care of myself, not only do I suffer but my family suffers. So ditch the mom guilt and take the time that you need! I have a tendency to keep pushing my needs aside until I reach a breaking point. We've had a very busy fun summer so far. However, I've struggled to get some quality ' me ' time to decompress. I'll spare you the meltdown that ensued. But the reality check that followed prompted me to take action.

Running My Life

Wow, has it really been 2 years since my last post? I suppose that I allowed life to get in the way. For any faithful blog readers, I apologize. Although, I'm not sure how many people actually read blogs anymore. I think most people use other social media platforms.  (By the way, drop by and say hi on Insta. )  But for some reason, each year when I pay for my google domain, I can't seem to let it go. As silly as it sounds, this little space is mine. And lately I've been struggling with ownership and acceptance. And my domain renewal was a not so gentle reminder that I have a voice .  Seriously, you'd think by 48 that I'd have this figured out - nope - apparently not. However, I am wise enough to know that we have a choice to allow situations to harms us or make us stronger. I'm choosing to let this mid-life quandary make me stronger. And because of this, I'm setting goals, taking charge, and reexamining priorities.  Movin' on... 

When The Planner In You Must Be Flexible

In case you haven’t figured this out by now, I’m a planner. I know - shocker right?!? :) So although I love substitute teaching, it’s making the planner in me anxious. And it’s been reeking havoc on my workouts. Basically the morning of or maybe the night before, I find out if I’m working. So my day ( that I thought I had planned ) can be turned upside down in an instant. But, truthfully, isn’t that really the same with everyone?
