Sexy Running sneaks and some bad cheats
Wednesday, March 21, 2012
I have been drooling over these sneaks for a while, I had ordered them from Zappos.com and who knew? Adidas now run big! Historically, they had always run small.... I digress. I finally got them in my size yesterday and am sooooo jazzed to get them on and get my run on at the gym. My lovely pair o' K-Swiss Tube runners have no treads left on the bottom, plus I was getting shin splints and leg pain on the regular. This is a pretty good sign (for me at least) that new sneakers were past due. Many people don't realize how important having good gym sneakers is to your body... think about it. You wouldn't keep old, threadless tires on your car, why would you treat your body any different!? It's not only dangerous but can cause other issues, so keep your sneaks fresh. I think every 3 months is a good gauge, depending on how often you exercise. Search SP for the exact numbers.
I was in quite a funk yesterday and binged my day away, for the most part. I ate potato chips, which I NEVER even touch, and even grabbed snacks while I was at the gas station. It was crazy. It's therapy day tomorrow, so hopefully CeCe can help me work out more of these issues. It makes me hate myself, but hating myself leads to more binging! AHHHH! The vicious, vicious cycle.
Speaking of bingeing, for my readers out there, I HIGHLY recommend "Women Food and God" by Geneen Roth. Wow. Just WOW. It really touches the heart and connects with emotional/binge/compulsive eaters. I'm starting on another of her books tonight. The name of the title escapes me right now, but she has a very intelligent and witty way of writing that I just love. Oh, I just found it, it's called "Breaking free of emotional eating". I'm looking forward to more of her very informative insights. I think these books will help if I just get over the fear of letting go of my old way of thinking.
I know part of the funk I was in has to do with my son turning one. He is such a great little baby, well, toddler now. My kids are growing up so fast, and I can't slow down time. Here's a pic of my big boy. My son-shine.
