Happy Monday night friends! Brrr it’s chilly outside & I am so happy to be curled up next to our beautiful tree and the lit fireplace watchin’ some tv with my man. Life’s simple pleasures 🙂
When I got home today check out what surprised me at the doorstep!
I couldn’t have been more excited to open it up and find this 🙂
The amazingly kind folks over at Aurorae Yoga offered to send me one of their yoga mats to try out, which couldn’t have come at a better time as I begin easing back into exercise after the accident with yoga this week. Here are some facts about the mat:
- Extra long 72″ x 24″ (perfect for us tall peeps! 😛 )
- Focal Point Icon helps you focus on your poses
- Ultra thick (1/4″) providing cushion and comfort to protect knees and joints
- Eco friendly material molds your hands and feet to the mat with immediate recovery – LOVE THIS! 🙂
Don’t believe me? Check out the Aurorae mat vs. ‘another popular mat’ I purchased a few weeks ago!
Yea, now that’s what I call one. thick. mat. Not to mention the fact that the color is just vibrantly beautiful!
So tonight’s yoga session consisted of YogaWorks Body Slim on ExerciseTV — ironically this is the workout I did the morning before the crash and the last workout since then. I really like this workout friends, it got me sweating and didn’t strain my muscles too much so it was perfect! Along with my new mat, it felt amazing to get back into things & I think my body was happy (we shall see tomorrow however?)
Thanks so much friends at Aurorae, I loved the mat and I know that it will help me to continue recovery as well as strengthen my yoga practice 🙂
Dinner tonight was a leftover extravaganza at our house, I am finding that I go to meals like this more and more on Monday nights thanks to some planning with Sunday night dinners.
I went for some of the crockpot pork bbq from last night, but put a twist on it! 🙂
Sauteed some frozen peppers and onions with some of this guy
Then started stackin’!
The addition of the peppers, onions and shredded cheese (plus more Frank’s 😉 ) was fantastic! Served with some coleslaw on the side and this easy meal was complete! Why are leftovers just SO GOOD????
The Man had some of the “Man-sagna” that I had frozen from last week (he had the bbq for lunch, didn’t want him to wear out on bbq friends!) It froze fantastically btw – note to self!
Check out what was also cracked open tonight, hey Monday is as good a day to celebrate life as any!!! 🙂 Life’s too short friends, tis the holiday season and tis the season for joyous holiday drinks… 😉
Check out how thick & creamy!
We decided that these Kahlua White Russians are deelish! The addition of a bit of vanilla vodka would probably make these drinks A+ winners (we are baddddd haha 😉 ) I will definitely be buying more of these over the holidays, they are the perfect fireside drink!
Alright friends, time to go watch some good quality TV (XOXO?!?!). I hope you have a wonderful Monday night and see you tomorrow!! 🙂
