Aurorae Yoga Mats

Last week I attempted to do yoga for the first time in over a year. I don't have a mat, but I am hoping to win one! A Nut in a Nutshell is giving away one courtesy of Aurorae Yoga. Now, I really need this if I am going to continue to do yoga. I used to love to do it before I went to bed *to de-stress*. In order for me to continue with it I NEED THIS MAT!! I have hard wood floors throughout my house, so it was killer on my wrists. When it came time to do floor work I doubled up a blanket, but that was also slipping all over the place. I love yoga so I PRAY THAT I WILL WIN THIS!

I would love to get the Violet mat. Violet is not only one of my favorite colors, but the color means everything that I try to achieve while doing yoga. Here are some of the different colors that they have along with their meanings:

Violet- Spiritual, Soothing, Calming, Telepathic, Healing, Relief & Meditative

Seamist- Soothing, Renewal, Intellect, Nature, Self Control, Gentle &

Solar- Creative, Inspiring, Energy, Compassionate, Warmth, Family & Stability

Ocean- Relaxation, Sedate, Caring, Cooling, Spirit, Trustworthy & Attentive

Infinity- Strength, Sophistication, Professionalism, Potential of Endless Possibilities

Hope- Intuitive,Faithful,Visionary, Power of Positive Thought, Energetic & Healing

If you would like to enter the giveaway you can head on over to A Nut in a Nutshell and also check out Aurorae Yoga. One lucky reader will win a yoga mat, a sport sweat towel, and rosin bag from Aurorae Yoga! Giveaway ends July 29, 2010.

Mamavation Monday- 7/26

I started out the week with great enthusiasm.

  • Monday- I did 30 minutes on the elliptical, and eat well.
  • Tuesday- I walked to the park and all around town for about 2 hours. (Hopefully my pedometer gets here soon) Ate well.
  • Wednesday- I did 90 mins of Yoga for the first time in almost a year. Ate well.
  • Thursday- VERY sore form Yoga so I took a break.
  • Friday- Still sore from Yoga...
  • Saturday- Did a little walking.
  • Sunday- Went to family reunion and ate stuff that I really shouldn't have. I ate some cake and about 15 mins later was feeling like crap! It's weird how that stuff can just make you feel like you are in such a fog... I drank a whole bunch of water(32 oz) after that and started feeling a bit better.
  • Sunday Night- The hubby gave me a really good work out! *)

  1. Eating cake will make you feel like crap!! Don't Eat the Cake!
  2. Even if you are sore after a work out the day before, push yours self to do something!

All week I did great with my water goal. I drank more than 64 oz a day. I did better this week with eating healthier, other than Sunday. I exercised more than I have in over a year. Over all now that I am really thinking about it I didn't do all that bad. I did get a wake up call though... At my reunion my uncle asked me I was pregnant again.... I told him I've just gained some weight since last year and am trying to loose it now. What a blow...That just really reinforced to me that I really need to work my but off and loose weight!

So, here are the Stats:

Weight- 171 (lost 1 lbs this week!)

Bust- 41 in.
Waist- 42 in.
Hips- 41 in.
Right Thigh- 24.5
Left Thigh- 24.5
Right Arm- 13.5
Left Arm- 13.5

This weeks goals:

  • Keep drinking lots of water
  • Keep eating better (NO MORE CAKE)
  • Start meal planning
  • Keep exercising more (Even if I am a bit sore)

Congratulations to Rita @lovelyritaann for being the Sista of the Week!

Mamavation Week 2

This week has been a busy one that's for sure. My computer got a bug and was down for a few days. I have been trying to work on the graphics and layout of this blog and in the process messed up my other blog The Simple Jocabell Life. On the plus side I was accepted into theMamavation Sistahood! I was so excited I almost started screaming at 1am when @bookieboo announced all the new Sistas of the week, but then realized I would wake up the rest of the house. After all the issues during the week though I do have to say that I had an amazing weekend! Saturday the hubby and I rode up to Roar on the Shore 2010! I love to ride with him and we don't get to do it often due to the kids, but when we do it's a blast! Sunday my daughter had a horse show and she won 5 First place ribbons! I am so proud of her!
I didn't do as good as I would have liked, but I think I did pretty good. First off I did drink alot more water than I have been. I think one of my biggest problems is that I don't eat enough and I have really realized it this week. I would eat first thing in the morning, but I have a pill that I have to take on an empty stomach and can't eat for 1/2 hour after I take it. Thus, by the time I can eat I am in the middle of doing something and eating just doesn't even cross my mind at that point and the thing is I don't even feel hungry. If someone would tweet me in the morning and ask if I have eaten yet that would be awesome!

Well, on my exercising... I didn't get in as much as I would have liked, but I hope that this week will be better.

I want to Congrats @all_about_savin and @jennydecki for being the new Mamavation Moms!! Also a I would like to Congrats Lori @gutimom for being the Sista of the Week!!

Do you love Bananas, cuz I love Bananas, especially Chiquita Bananas. In fact we can never keep Bananas in our house for more than 2 days because everyone LOVES them!

My New Blog!

Welcome to Simply Fitting Into Life...and my old jeans! I am so glad that you are here to see me transform my body so that I can fit back into my old jeans!

So what do you think? What kind of graphics would you like to see here? I am working on the background and header because I don't think that it really fits my blog theme. I have been playing with Adobe Illustrator trial and I am having so much fun with it! When the trial is over though I am gonna have to cry because I sure don't have the money buy it. Hey, maybe Adobe will give it to me for free. LOL Yeah, I see that happening.

For now go check out My Story.
