Auroae Yoga Mat Review

I have just recently begun a regular yoga routine, and I've already learned a lot. To begin with, I've learned that yoga is tough, my muscles ache every day and sometimes I feel like I'm slowly turning into a pretzel.  For another, I've learned that doing yoga means spending a LOT of time on the floor.  As a mother with three children who are terrified of my vacuum cleaner, I can assure you that floor time isn't always a lot of fun  in my house :-)  Luckily, … [Read more...]

Pulse Yoga – Review and Giveaway (Birthday Bash) – CLOSED

Ever since I had my third child, I have to admit that I am not looking as cute as I'd like :0).  Most of you know by now that I've been working really hard to lose this baby weight and get healthy, but it can be really tough to find workouts that I enjoy, that are challenging, and that are practical in my crazy-busy life all at the same time.  So when I heard about the Pulse Yoga system - a type of yoga that focuses on micro movements and uses free weights to strengthen muscles … [Read more...]

My Weightloss Journey – Week Three!

Well it's that time again.  Time for me to weigh-in, both on the scale and off, about my crazy life as a mom, student, business woman, and writer trying to lose weight with Studio V.  Okay, that sounds a little melodramatic, but the truth is I sometimes feel like I need about 100 hours to be added to each day to find time to meet all of my responsibilities.  This has been a tough week for me - early on in the week I was still struggling to overcome some health problems, and by … [Read more...]

Week 2 with Studio V – Halfway Through!

 Well, I'm done with my second week of my weight-loss journey with Studio V, and I've got to tell you, it's been a rollercoaster ride!  This week I started off strong, but some health problems got in the way and have set me back a little bit.   I'm finally starting to feel better, but the doctor's orders are no exercise until April 14, so I've really had to focus on my diet this week - I'm really broken up about the orders to rest, can you tell! (-:  I've included my … [Read more...]

Week 1 With Studio V – and so it Begins!

Second, even … [Read more...]
