Congrats, Nancy! I can say with supreme certainty that the Apple Cherry bar is delightful in every way possible. You'll find out once you receive your variety pack. Thanks to everyone else that participated—I always love hosting giveaways because it's so fun to give back, but because many of you leave links to your own blogs. I'm always looking for new blogs to read.
I can't, of course, go any further without thanking the people behind That's It bars. So generous of them to send samples my way, and even more generous of them to send a variety pack toward Nancy! I love it when companies share the love.
Oh, and...prenatal yoga. LOVE. I think it's really going to help me focus my breathing in an effort to further my relaxation efforts during labor and delivery. At least I hope it will. It felt good to get some deep stretches while doing some deep breathing. Looking forward to next week already.
Speaking of breathing, don't forget about your breath while you're working out. Inhale when it's easy, exhale when you exert the effort. Inhale when you squat, exhale when you stand up. Inhale when you straighten your arm, exhale when you curl up with your bicep. Etc...etc. If you find yourself holding your breath throughout your workout, you really need to focus more on letting it go. To hold your breath is to not only deprive your working muscles of oxygen, but to deprive your brain of it as well. Without this flow of oxygen, you just might pass out if you're not careful.
Now go, practice some deep breathing!
