Meet the Ghost!

Monday, February 03, 2014

From Brooks, the Ghost 6 is my running-shoes-to-be!

I went to the running store today to find the perfect shoe. I love them. I'm not picking them up until Thursday.

There is a 2 week exchange/refund policy and I want to test them out while out of town for a friend's wedding -aka someplace it isn't snowing! emoticon and then I can exchange them after if they aren't a fab fit. but i think they will be iyh emoticon

Also, it will be nice to pick them up after achieving a goal.

Reward for sticking to my meal plan, making sure my meals take 20 minutes and for not weighing myself.
Still need to work on rating my hunger before and after meals- but let me tell you. after spending so much time mindfully eating- I realize how much I don't need to eat. And that I'm full on my dietitian's meal plan.

However, there are always treats that aren't about being fuel but are just yum. So still challenging.

Also a reminder to be kinder to myself.

Reading Geneen Roth's When Food is Love- which had some interesting insights. Highly recommend for an easy and thought provoking read.

What are some rewards you're looking forward to? AND/OR what's your favorite workout shoe?

    Congrats on your new shoes! Also thanks for sharing about them and the book. My favorite pair of workout shoes have been Nikes. I've tried other brands, but have always gone back to Nikes because they usually fit me the best.

    Congrats on your new sneakers! I have Adidas Kanadia's and love them. I usually wear Merrell shoes (work shoes, hiking boots, etc...) but when I tried their running shoes I found that the shape encouraged my foot to roll. Since then, I stick with my cheap Adidas sneakers (that I actually bought for walking, not running, but they're perfect for both!). Love them!
