Microfiber Towels and Flip Flop from Aurarae #ProductReview

Now that winter is in full force, I am back to  doing my  workout indoors.  I don't go to the gym  so I just use my   fitness stuff at home including  treadmill, core ball, yoga, pilates, jump rope, and  hula hoops.  
Hubby and I are continuing our fitness goals that we started a couple of years ago.  We are not getting any younger so staying  healthy is our main priority.  We want to be around  with our kids and possibly see our grand kids.   Below are just some photos I post on  Instagram.   


So far, we are doing good.  It's not a rigorous  exercise regimen,  even little   activities is fine as long as we  keep moving and  stay active.  
Anyway, I got this Women’s Yoga Mat Flip Flop from Aurorae and I am loving it. It became my favorite slip on footwear that I regularly wear around the house.   I love how  invigorating  this flip flop  feels in your feet when you walk.  Auraorae's flip flop is made  from  real EVA Foam yoga mats and are available in many of their  Aurorae yoga mat colors.  They  are eco safe and free from toxins which is great so you don't have to  worry about it.
This is so soft that it  provided my feet comfort.  I hurt my left foot  before New Year when I was organizing my son's  toys.  I accidentally dropped  one of his big trucks on my foot and it immediately bulged up.  The next day, my whole foot was all bruised.  I think I  had a n internal bleeding, as you can see it is still  bruised when I took this photo a couple of weeks after it happened.
It didn't bother me  during the first week but on the second week, it  was painful.  I still can't  bend my toes  for now but it is getting better.  Hubby said it might have been the cause when  I fainted while I was doing my exercise and feel on my knees.  I didn't even feel  it came, it was  so sudden.  I don't remember falling, the only thing I remember when I opened my eyes was  my two dogs licking my face as they always stand  by me when I am at the basement  working out.  My husband wanted me to go to the doctor but I am fine.  My knees hurts and all bruised up but I think I will be fine.  Having said that, my #1MileaDay goal was put on a hat for now.

Photos below were taken before I hurt my knees.  For now, all I can do is hula hoops and  some arm exercises.
Working out at home is  convenient, the only downside of it is  lack of  motivation sometimes.  I sometimes tell myself that I would do my work out later on which is a big mistake because when you do it later in the day, you are already tired so you don't do as much. 
I prefer doing it in the morning before  doing my online tasks because my energy is still full.
It has been  a while since I did yoga so it feels so good to be able to do it again.  Planking is a good exercise too.
Anyway, aside from the flip flop, I also got this swim towel from Aurorae.  It is super absorbent and  lightweight.  I brought it during our  Kalahari adventure last weekend.  This towel  will be great whether you plan to stroll on a beach, linger poolside, picnic at the lake or sail off shore.  Aurorae's towels are  over sized yet compact which I really like.  It is available in  many colors such as Bermuda Sands, Caribbean Breeze, Cayman Island Coral, Fiji Sunset, Kauai Coast,   Pacific Twilight, and  Sanibel Sunrise.  Mine is the Mediterranean seas color.

  7. I think it's amazing that you are sticking to your goals. I wish I could set and keep goals. Don't overdo it though, fainting spells are pretty scary. What if you had been in the tub or driving or something? Yikes, you might want to talk to your doctor.
