My New Walking Shoes
Saturday, January 23, 2021
I am now into month #10 of consistent Spark food tracking and 10,000 Fitbit step tracking. Consistency and determination have paid off. I take days off, from time to time, but get back on track as I see how quickly old (bad) habits (and pounds) come back. This new focused lifestyle will have to be my new norm to keep this new body.
With all this walking, I have gone through two sets of gym shoes, as I doubt I can call them running shoes, and needed something that was sturdier for road and trail walking. I went into Mark’s (here in Canada) and tried on my first pair of Merrell shoes. To my amazement, they had my size. I tried them on and they were comfy. Then I saw they had a half size smaller, so I tried them on. This pair was made for me! I’ve worn them for two days now! I don’t want to take them off! Yes, I’m standing in a light dusting of snow.
I am certainly cruising into gradual maintenance, and am grateful for my Spark friends and teams for continued support and encouragement. Slow and steady wins this race. I’m still chugging along, except now I have fabulous new shoes!
Merrell - Siren Edge Q2 - size 5 to 11. Five different colour options. I just ordered my second pair!
