Sorry I’m a little late in posting but as you all know by now, Wednesdays are my busy days….really because my favorite yoga class is smack dab in the middle of the day and everything else is centered around that!
Speaking of yoga, guess what the UPS man brought to ME today??!
A new mat! And this awesome all natural mat spray!!!
It was like Christmas, not gonna lie. The kind people at The Bolder Mat Company sent me a new eco-friendly mat and spray to review on the blog and I am very thankful. It came just in time for me to tote to my noon power vinyasa class and I looooved the pretty color. It made me happy 🙂
Here are some things I loved about this mat:
- really pretty color and design
- light and easy to carry (my other mat is SUPER heavy)
- great for traveling
I didn’t like:
- I kept sliding all over the mat because it wasn’t incredibly “sticky” and power yoga = sweaty Jenna
That’s really all! I have a yogi toes mat cover that I religiously use every class on top of my mat so I don’t slide around and you would definitely need that (or something!) if you use this mat. Actually, I had to step out in the middle of class to grab a big towel to cover the mat so I could get grounded! Regardless, I will definitely use this, especially when I travel. I loved the design! The mat spray also was very nice…I have to admit y’all—I don’t disinfect as much as I probably should. Gross, I know. I loved this spray because it was all natural, cruelty-free and smelled pretty. A keeper!
Before class I snacked on this lovely new bar from my sweet Summit swag bag—
I really liked it! It was crunchy, soft and chewy at at the same time and reminded me of a blueberry muffin. I looked at the ingredients and saw it had chia seeds in it! How cool! These bars are made by Pro Bar but unlike Pro Bar, they only have about 160 calories in them, making for a lighter snack option.
When I got home from yoga at 1:45, of course I was almost gnawing my arm off from hunger. That’s definitely the down side of these noon classes….lunch! I dug into my mac & cheese leftovers and had a few random pieces of chicken lunch meat on the side. Plus a big peach. Mmmm
