Three words. I have three words for you. WHAT A MONTH. September was easily one of my most stressful months this year. Getting back into the swing of school things, after spending my last four months in Europe was a bit more challenging than I had thought. I have found myself really fighting for that extra “push” to get things done, and have been oddly more stressed than usual.
I guess because of the combination of my senior year, eeeeek! And my absence from Oneonta last semester, I have been very stressed.
When I get stressed I tend to do one of two things:
- Lie down somewhere (anywhere really; floor, couch, shower, etc.) and literally do absolutely nothing for hours, or,
- Go to the gym.
Only one of these two things makes me feel better when I’m stressed –can you guess which one?
This month I have spent a lot of time at the gym. I find that calming workouts such as light cardio or yoga, clear my mind and make me feel awesome. I never feel worse after a work out. Burning some cals while distressing? Now that’s a win win in my book.
When Babbleboxx reached out to me, and asked me to join in on their yoga month box I was absolutely ecstatic. I have taken a fare share of yoga classes this month, so I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this box, which was totally jam-packed with some fitness goodies.
Here’s a lil’ round up of what the box contained:
Am I the only one who always feels totally ripped when I drink a protein shake after a good gym sesh?! I have tried a ton of different proteins (even pea protein, which I 10/10 do NOT recommend. this tastes like literal peas). Ascent is definitely up there at the top of my list when it comes to proteins. The flavor of this stuff made it refreshing, and throwing some into my smoothies was quite a treat! If you would like to try some of Ascent Protein Powder, you can use the discount code “YOGA” for 10% off.

As busy as I have been this past month, I did go out of my way to make time for this book, and I’m so happy that I did. I am a big fan of self-help books and Glennon Doyle’s New York Times best selling novel; Love Warrior was an amazing book. I found myself continuously reaching for it every night before bed.
Not gonna lie, Kombucha has always freaked me out a bit. The idea of living probiotics in a drink is kind of iiiiintereting? Anyway, I actually LOVED the kombucha in this box and am so happy that I took the plunge and tried it. I can’t really describe the flavor to a “t”, but it was different, a good type of energizing, yummy, different.
I have been using this stuff for as long as I can remember! In The Raw is a form of Stevia, and is a non- GMO natural sweetener. I love throwing this in my oatmeal and sometimes coffee if I’m feeling adventurous.
Let’s not kid ourselves; everyone can use one of these after a good gym workout. These personal care wipes get rid of bacteria and have been approved by gynecologists. These are conveniently tiny, so they’re perfect to throw in a gym bag, or any bag really. If you have never heard of them before I recommend!
One word: DELISH. I love bars, going to Whole Foods and exploring the bar section is one of my favorite things to do; it’s like choosing a candy bar, but a healthier, protein packed candy bar. The B.O.S.S bars that I was sent were absolutely amazing. They’re made with real, gluten free, paleo ingredients, no BS. Lucky for us, they are sold on Amazon Prime! Delicious healthy goodness delivered to your door in two days. OH YEA. If Amazon isn’t your thing, you and get free shipping here until October 15th using the code “BABBLEBOSS”.
All in all, I enjoyed all of the products in this box. I would totally recommend trying them. Let me know in the comments if you do, I would love to hear what you think!
