Man, it’s good to be back! I honestly don’t know how long it’s been since I posted a Mamavation Monday post.
Last week the holiday really threw me. I had no idea what day of the week it was and totally spaced. My bad.
The weeks before I was dealing with some serious emotional upheaval in my life. I don’t really want to talk about it, but I’m on my way to okay. Promise. As
is was my habit, I ate my feelings. And gained a few pounds back. Dirty words…
I’m making some healthier decisions for myself. I’m coming out of the funk and I’m getting back to kicking ass and taking names. I’m focusing on portions sizes what what I’m eating portions of and water intake. When it comes to water I’m an all or nothing kind of girl. I really need to curb my pop drinking.
The part I love to hate of my becoming human again is taking part in the Mamavation Two Week Challenge.
Oh, holy night. I don’t know if I’ve ever been this sore in my life.
But I’m loving it!
It hurts and it’s difficult, but I’m doing it! Maybe I’m a masochist, but oh baby..it does hurt so good.
Most impressive to me is that I’m sticking with it. Having the accountability of daily report ins and the step by step layout of the workouts is HUGE!
Question: When was the last time you got new workout shoes? What do you use them for?
I honestly don’t remember the last time I bought new workout shoes. Though I do remember the extreme sticker shock… It’s been at least a few years. I’m almost positive I’ve had the same pair of workout shoes longer that I’ve known B.
No, I didn't take a nekkid pic. I have shorts on.
They’re still in really, really good condition.
Because I never used them until I wrote the post that changed my life.
And it took me a while to psych myself up into using the treadmill.
And little while longer to become a regular user. *Insert very sheepish look here*
These Asics are amazeballs. Gel inserts, super cushion-y sole, no pinching anywhere- ever, no blisters. A serious shoe-gasm.
While these shoes are fabulous, I’m thinking of having my gait analyzed at one of the local running stores and buying myself an ungodly expensive pair of running shoes once I’m employed again. I don’t know if it’s the shoes, how I run, an old injury, or what but I get some really bad lower back pain some days after running. I should probably look into that, eh?
I also have a pair of Reebok Easy Tones that I wear EVERYWHERE. I LOVE these shoes. They’re number 2 on the list of most comfortable tennis shoes I’ve ever worn. Another serious shoe-gasm. For. Reals.
Have an awesome week, Sistas and I promise to try and get back in the swing of posting!
