Foam Rolling With Trigger Point Massage Therapy

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.

As most of you know if you've been following my blog, I'm a believer in foam rolling.  #TuesdayTidbit - Do You Foam Roll?  If you are new to the blog, welcome. :)

But I have never used a trigger point foam roller. They've always looked scary to me! My first thought when seeing one was pain. That being said, I was a little apprehensive to try a trigger point foam roller, but there have been times that I just couldn't really get to the sore spot that I needed to massage. So I put my fears aside and tried the GR8 Goodz Trigger Point Massage Therapy Foam Roller.

Before I could try it out, Lil Man played with it for an entire afternoon. He thought it made a good garage for his trucks because of the hole in the center. ;) I knew one of the best ways to test the trigger point foam roller's toughness was to let my 4 year old have it for a few hours. It passed the rough handling of a preschooler.

I have to say that I was surprised when I tried it out. I just assumed that I would need to use it lightly, and for me that wasn't the case. I was able to use it the same way as a regular foam roller. The difference was that I was able to target specific areas easier.

I loved the size. I have found that with a longer foam roller, sometimes I wouldn't have the space to use it. The GR8 Goodz Trigger Point Massage Therapy Foam Roller was the perfect size to roll out my muscles without bumping into my furniture.

If you foam roll, I encourage you to try the GR8 Goodz Trigger Point Massage Therapy Foam, if you don't foam roll, I encourage you start!

I'm hoping for an injury free year this year, and foam rolling is part of my program!

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?
