I got my new shoes and my new (unrelated) goal in life:hooping

Saturday, January 05, 2013


My best friend, who really is THE best, took me to get them for my birthday. I went to a local (yay!!) real-deal running store where they had me stand on a little mat and then run on a treadmill. And then they said a bunch of scientific words that i didnt understand and gave me some to try on. As soon as i tried them on, i could feel the difference. The shoes i have have no support. Seriously. Huge difference. i think this is gonna really help. i cant wait to run and try them out. I think they are pretty hideous but aesthetics didnt seem high on the priority list with the products this place carried. which is a shame. somewhere down the track im gonna need to figure out how to get better looking shoes but for now i dont care as long as they work. and the best part is, i have 2 weeks to try them out and if i still have problems, i can go back and try something else.

other than that, i didnt do very well with my calories. i was with my pregnant best friend which never ends up being helpful in the food department. i dont even know how to log it. we ate at my favorite mexican place which has no nutritional info posted anywhere so i guess my logging streak ends here and ill start over tomorrow. im gonna get this. i know i am.

next on the list of things of i really really really want is:
1. a hula hoop
2. a juicer

racking my brain for friends and relatives to solicite but ive pretty well tapped everyone out so probably gonna have to wait till tax time.

I've been wanting to try hooping for a looooooooooooooooooooooooong time. I always see it at the concerts i go to and think - yes! thats who i am! - as you can see by my background picture. i saw that photo and thought, thats what i look like on the inside. but i just get caught up in the day to day grind. like another dream of mine is to make my own clothes but i just dont have the time or the resources to get started so it just stays a dream. Anyway, i REALLY want to start hooping. And today i was just messing around with my friend's and im already addicted. so fun. if you're ever bored, check out some hooping videos on youtube. thats basically my new goal in life. not that im going to stop running. im just a girl with multiple active hobbies now! So at least i got a good work out today.

    Happy Birthday! Love the shoes! I think in general all running shoes are the ugliest shoes around. emoticon One of my SP friends, just made her own hoop and it turned out cute. Hope you're able to hoop it up soon.

    New properly fitted shoes make such a huge difference! You are going to love them. I have a bunch of friends that hoop and they love it. Definitely great exercise, in addition to being fun!

    Hooping is one of those things that I've been letting fear hold me back on. One day!!!
I also need to go look for some good shoes. Maybe after taxes. We'll see. So excited for you!!
I was wondering about that picture!!! If that was you!! So glad I know. I love the story behind it. emoticon

    I guess your new shoes are keeping all their "cute" secret in those SUPER COOL liners. Awesome present!

(Now I'm going to go shop for shoes. Thanks sooo much...)
