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.
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.The owner of this blog was NOT financially compensated to write this review.
