Alright, well I always write these lists of rewards I'll get myself when I loose weight, and then never actually buy myself anything. Today, I decided though, that I REALLY needed some new tennis shoes. I always REALLY deserved them. I am down 30lbs now from back in May, and I have been wearing the same shoes from 3-4 years ago. That is how old they are, I cannot even remember what year I bought them. Don't believe me? Take a look:
Man, I am embarrassed I even wore those shoes once in that condition. You can clearly see the lining in the back is falling out, what you can't see is the stitching in the front is coming undone too. Anyways, it was time for some TLC for my feet. I went down to a shoe store that advertises itself as a running shoe place, and they were great! They let you wear some test shoes and run on a treadmill while they record it, and then check your running to find the right shoes. I apparently over pron-ate (sp?) and we found some shoes to help me correct that. And, they are adorable. So here are my new shoes:
I feel like a whole new person when I wear them, the whole 2 minutes that I have. Funny how a new pair of shoes can make a huge difference. I am super excited to get out and run tomorrow.
Oh, and I have some news for what I am doing tonight to workout...Pole Dancing class! Haha, it is definitely not my style, but a coworker/friend is having her birthday celebration and that is what her friends are doing and she invited me. I didn't want to say no, since I like her and I thought it would be fun to try. So now I have some new shoes to wear to the class, lol.
Alright, well that is all for now!
