Sponsor Spotlight: Aspaeris Pivot Compression Shorts

For any of you runners out there, you understand what a good pair of compression shorts can do for you.  They are great for recovery, but, in my opinion, even better for those long runs.  And Aspaeris Pivot Shorts are the best I have tried.  Here is a brief description of the shorts from their website:

Aspaeris Pivot Shortshave a triple purpose:

They should add a 4th purpose: Give you a better backside profile! They really do!

Improved Performance

The patent pending Dual Sensory Compression BandsTM guide your muscles into proper alignment. This guidance reduces your muscle fatigue allowing your body to move in the most efficient possible way. You’ll feel lighter and stronger as you push your body to the limits.

Runners know that the less energy used worrying about form, the more energy available to run a faster race.

Faster Recovery

Running in Pivot Shorts sets you up for an easier recovery period through improved muscle alignment. However, if you only wear Pivot Shorts for recovery, the Dual Sensory Compression BandsTM serve a secondary purpose in holding muscles in place and improving the circulation to your tired quads, hamstrings, and glutes.

Injury Prevention

Your race goals may be to beat your personal best, but Pivot Shorts are made for more than just performance. Proper body alignment means you’re lessening your chance of injury.

When you’re on your 24th mile of a marathon, you are not thinking about running form anymore. Let Pivot Shorts do the thinking for you. The light guidance will help you maintain your form and stay strong til the end.

Pivot Shorts are not your everyday compression shorts; they are a triple threat. Let them give you the confidence you need on your run.

Black Aspaeris under my skirt
I bought my first pair of Aspaeris Compression Shorts for the Shamrock Marathon.  I have had issues with my IT band in the past and wanted to keep my IT band as happy as possible while training for the marathon and during it too.  Plus, it was while training for the marathon that I began to have hamstring and glute issues and I wanted to make sure that these muscles were as supported as they could be. And, I loved these every mile!  Not only did they help during training, but they were great during the marathon as well.

This was my second marathon and my first wearing Aspaeris Compression Shorts and I could tell the difference.  My muscles still felt good after the marathon and the recovery was so much easier!

I now own these compression shorts in all three colors and would recommend them to anyone!

And, lucky for you, Aspaeris is giving one of you a pair of these in your choice of size a color.  Get excited runners!!


  1. Thanks for your review! I am seriously considering a pair of these now!

  2. Really good review. Do you know if Aspaeris is having a promo?

    I use to have one until I fell on my butt real hard and it ripped. I do agree on your 4th purpose. It really does give you a better backside profile. Especially when you're running on a treadmill at the gym. Wearing those compression shorts also motivates me to stay healthy.

The Gift (Our NFP story) Part 2

(You can read  Part 1 here

     So, by the time Andrew was 18 months old, we knew God was saying no to having more children at the time.  And, as mentioned before, He provided so much peace about it, that we knew we had discerned correctly.  Yet, even with that peace, I had to mourn the fact the we might not ever have any more children.  Yes, we were still open to life, of course, but from the time after Andrew’s birth, until today, we practiced NFP faithfully to avoid pregnancy.  And it took time to accept that we might not have any more children.  There were times when I would hold a friend’s new born baby and then go home and cry because I knew I might not ever know the joy of holding my own baby again.  We live in a community where life is celebrated and families are large.  Usually more than one friend is pregnant at a time.  In those early days, each pregnancy announcement was met with great joy for the friend, but often left me with an empty feeling.  I understood, in many way…

My verse for the year

But now, O LORD, You are our Father, We are the clay, and You our potter; And all of us are the work of Your hand.   Isaiah 6:48

There are boxes being unpacked in our home.  Boxes packed and meant to be unpacked in a different home, our new home, in a matter of two weeks.  

About two weeks before Christmas things changed.  Situations changed.  And what we were convinced was God's will just months before, seemed so unlike it now.  Things beyond our control happened and suddenly we were praying and we felt that the best and only solution was to walk away from this new house.  And at the end of  a week of uncertainty, anxiety and tension, once the decision was made to walk away from the house, there was a great deal of peace.   But, as the dust settles from the decision, even though we know it is the best for everyone involved, there is still sadness, still this sense of loss.  As we have prayed again and again, we know each of all of the steps we have made in this whole house journey …

Yonanas and a yummy protein chocolate peanut butter ice cream

I have to admit, I have a sweet tooth.  A big sweet tooth.  I blame it on genetics.  My dad loves sweets and I think my grandmother, his mother, subsisted only on foods that contained sugar.  But, when you are working on eating healthy and bringing the whole family along with you, things like ice cream, cookies and cakes have to replaced by something better.

So, when Lena from JOYfilled family posted about the Yonanas she got, I wanted to try it!  Yonanas makes "ice cream" from frozen bananas.  I have heard of making "ice cream" this way before and I have tried it in our blended, but it usually came out quite liquidy.  So, when we got a gift card for Amazon, I knew exactly what I wanted to buy.

I have used the Yonanas several times and I love it!!  The consistency of the "ice cream" is very smooth, light and creamy.  My 4 year old, who is a very picky eater, loves his new "ice cream."  Now, my older boys could not be fooled . . . they immediatel…
