GIVEAWAY: Custom Yoga Towel from Yogamatic! -CLOSED-

Winner Do you workout? This is the new product for you; seriously. This towel from Yogamatic has so many uses it's almost ridiculous. It can be used as a yoga mat all by itself (for example over carpet)!   I haven't used it for all the uses I'll mention because I've been in the throws of my 30 day challenge with Bikram yoga . I do know I look forward to using it to it's max potential! ;) First off, the Yogamatic towel isn't an ordinary bath towel. It IS one of the coolest products I've seen lately. Yogamatic has been featured on Oprah when Jennifer Aniston gave Oprah a yoga mat with her dogs printed on it. What a fun idea to have your own design printed right on your yoga mat or towel! This can make your workout more fun, and/or inspirational. They also have several cool ideas on their website if you want to choose from their " Image Galleries ." As for me, being from Utah, they sent me a limited edition towel of a beautiful downhill

I think my kids have croup. :(  So I took them on a walk in the coolish air (that's what you do right??)  We ended up at the new Whole Foods at Trolley Square.  It's so pretty!  When you go make sure to pick up The Whole Deal, it has lots of store coupons in it that can be stacked with manufacture coupons! My favorite coupon is the $1/1 ANY Muir Glen product.  (in The Whole Deal) Organic Tomato Paste is $ .19!  I wasn't prepared with loads of coupons so it was a small trip. Grapes are .99/lb.!!  side note--my husband felt guilty as a kid eating grapes because he thought "these are too good to be good for me!"  HA!! I got the bag of chips for FREE using a coupon that is no longer available. Here is a full coupon match up from Your Green Helper for Whole Foods.  There are lots of great deals!  I need to take another walk. :) Also today from 11am to 3pm there's a Local Vendor Taste Fair with FREE samples and live music! .

Review: 30 Day Challenge SLC Bikram Yoga- Week 3

My week started off thinking about the word Namaste. After every yoga class, both teacher and student utter this phrase. One of several cool meanings of Namaste is: the light in me bows to the light in you. Which is pretty cool to think of each of us having light and goodness within. Knowing this, I tried to remind myself to be at peace with myself and to forgive and be grateful for my experience in yoga and whatever happened that day, or would later follow. "We're not hungry for what we're not getting: we're hungry for what we're not giving."--Anonymous This idea was how I was feeling this week during my 30 day challenge at SLC Bikram Yoga . It was the most challenging week thus far. Some days I would get so frustrated I couldn't give my classes more. I wanted my poses to be held longer, extend higher, and not sit out any.
