Active April and Giveaway!

So…after over 5 months of not much activity, I’m ready to get moving again! Nick and I are going to start running again now that the weather is nice (and Maggie is old enough) and I’m going to try my best to be more active in April.

We may not run everyday, and I may not have a set “workout” each day; I just want to be more active overall.

More walking with Maggie, more moving during the day, and more time outside.

In honor of my Active April, I’ve got a cool giveaway today!

I won an Aurorae Yoga Mat in a giveaway a few months ago, and it’s definitely the best yoga mat I’ve ever had.

Super thick and longer than other yoga mats, it’s so comfortable and is long enough to move around and not “fall off”.


Thanks to OpenSky and Aurorae, we’re holding a giveaway for an Aurorae yoga mat of your own, valued at $30!

To enter, you can click here OR click on the image above. Easy!

1 winner will be generated at random and notified within five minutes of entering.

And a bonus! Everyone who enters will receive a 10% off discount that can be applied towards your own yoga mat or towards any product in my Shop (cast iron skillet, french press, lots of other fun items).

The 10% off coupon will expire one week from today, so have fun shopping, and good luck to all who enter! Please let me know if you win the Aurorae yoga mat!


In honor of the start of a more Active April (and the giveaway!), I actually did a little free form yoga this morning ;)

I’m actually still a little tight from our run last week so some easy yoga and extra stretches felt great this morning.

It also helps wake me up! Always a good thing on Monday mornings, along with a good breakfast.


I had one banana that was perfectly ripe this morning, just waiting to be turned into a banana split.


I also just really wanted some White Chocolate Wonderful this morning ;)

Time for coffee and work!

How was your weekend?
