A Healthy Balance

I'm feeling the lack of my exercise routine. Although I have been able to get in a few workouts, I know they aren't my normal intensity. Combine that with eating my fill of ice cream, cookies and bacon, I'm feeling pretty blah. My blood pressure is high, my clothes are snug, and I feel sluggish.

In The Blink Of An Eye

It took us 22 hours in the truck – twenty-two VERY long hours. First of all, I personally have a very hard time sitting still. Put me in a truck where my feet don’t even touch the floor board, while listening to talk radio (which I can’t stand), while dealing with a 4 year old who was already asking if we were there yet and we’d only been driving an hour, well, you can imagine just how LONG the trip was to my parents’ house. 

But as we drove into my home town, I could feel the tension melting away. It had been an entire year since I’ve been here. I couldn't help but get giddy as my heart was screaming home! Home! Home! The fact that we were about to get out of this blankety blank truck wasn’t a bad thing either.

Jumping Rope With The Limm High Speed Jump Rope

I have been compensated in the form of a gift card/money/coupon and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free. All opinions expressed are mine and honest in nature.

I'm not going to lie, it's been a very long time since I've used a jump rope. But the first image I have in my head when I think of jumping rope is toned boxers in movies. :) I'm pretty sure this is going to be a great addition to my strength training and existing cardio routine.

The Limm High Speed Jump Rope came at the perfect time for me. It's compact and easy to carry - with summer plans and traveling it's going to be my go-to for cardio when I can't sneak in a run or a trip to the gym. It's also great for at home because it's something that I can do while Lil Man is busy with an activity. What if I jumped roped during commercials? There are endless opportunities to jumping rope.

But let me say, within a few minutes my heart

Zig - Portable Protein On-The-Go

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 feel like I'm always in the go. Who doesn't these days? And I workout super early before my family wakes up - which means I have to get all of my gear out the night before.

And there have been times that I often forget my recovery shake/drink. And it's too late for me to find a shaker and scoop my powder in the am. Well check out Zig Portable Protein Shake!

To me, this is portable at its finest. You simple add water and go. If you are like me you are probably thinking 'yeah right and choke down clumps'. Have you ever done that? I have and it's gross.

JWalking Designs - Running In A Skirt

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.

Running skirts - love them or hate them - I see them everywhere. I have to admit they are cute. And I've come across one that's not only cute and functional, but it's modest. I'm talking about JWalking Designs

Granted, I'm short so it's a little longer on me than most average height people. But compared to other running skirts, I found the JWalking Design skirt to be longer with longer shorts underneath.
