Youphoria Yoga Mat Givaway + Giveaway

A little background on me...
Losing weight and keeping it off has been a struggle for me. When I was younger I was on a medication that made me constantly hungry. I eventually just got used to the bad habit of shoveling food in  whenever i wanted to. In high school, I went through depression and looked to food for comfort. I stopped looking at the scale when i hit 185 lbs... I was huge! I eventually did lose the weight but usually my weight hung around 165. NOW I have gone through two pregnancies, my youngest is 4 months! Now I am trying to get rid of some of this baby fat.

I started going to weekly workout classes that kick my butt. Up until now I had been borrowing my fiance's yoga mat. I was extremely happy when I FINALLY got one of my own! There are four color options for this mat, pink, blue, green and black.

I chose the bright lime green one, because I love frogs and figured green would be fitting! I also figured, with such a vibrant color I would not have to worry about accidentally grabbing my fiance's mat.

I love frogs!

We don't use a yoga mat every week and I missed 2 weeks of classes. One week I had my sons 2 year check up and the next week I was waiting on FedEx. Tonight was the first night I actually had a chance to use my mat and to get a photo taken!

 The exercise classes are in a meeting room at a hospital and there is NO padding to the carpet there. This week we did a LOT of ab work outs and having this mat was really nice. I really like how the mat has just enough cushion. The mat is sponge-y enough to leave an impression of my shoe or hand, which slowly went away.

Even though the work out kicked my butt, I sure had fun! I was also happy to show off my new yoga mat
