The right shoes make all the difference
Wednesday, April 13, 2011
I have been walking and going up and down the stairs at work for a few months now and this has been working out well for me. I do this in my regular work clothes, which are usually jeans, a top, and loafers. I don't sweat much and this has been about the only way I could committ to doing exercise. It works for me.
However, with the nicer weather comes different shoes and lately I have been wearing sandals. Well, they all seem to be slightly too big and everytime I try to walk or go up the stairs, they slip off. This makes it extremely hard to exercise and yesterday I had to actually go barefoot!
(Side note: I wonder if you lose weight in your feet? Is that why my shoes are too big? hmmmm I do remember them growing when I was pregnant, but that was a long time ago.)
So today I brought an old pair of tennies to work. (I want to keep my faves , my Sketchers Shape-Ups, at home where I will use them more.) I'm going to keep them here permanently and use them everyday.
As I took my walk today, all I could think was "This is so much better!" The right shoes (or at least not the wrong ones!) make all the difference. One more potential excuse gone!
