I don't know what happened to me and keeping track of my health per se, but I have been doing a not-so-good job of it within the past few months. One day I stepped on the scale and I am 10 pounds heavier. That is just not acceptable. I had worked hard to get where I was and I'm not going to put the extra weight back on.
Lately I've been trying to stay active by walking and running. But I had been in somewhat desperate need for new running shoes. My closet is full of shoes with about 10% of them being athletic shoes. Sounds like I really needed them right?! But the fact is, I hadn't gotten a new pair of running shoes in almost 5 years. I've put a lot of miles on the shoes I have. So I did kind of need a new pair.
Luckily when I was down in Charleston, I found some super cute Under Armour shoes that were on sale. Cute and a sale... What could be better?! Oh also John bought them for me. Cherry on top, y'all!
After breaking them in, they are everything I need in a running shoe. Although my old Nike's were the most comfortable things in the world, they were a bit clunky. But no longer do I have to worry about my feet being weighed down. These puppies feel like I'm wearing nothing. They are incredibly light and I love how they feel.
I tried to take notice of what I loved about them while I was running. Besides feeling like my feet are weightless, they also get great breath-ability. I'm pretty sure that's not a word, but it needs to be. The top part is a mesh-like material which allows air flow in the shoe. I don't recall any of my other shoes allowing my feet to actually feel the fresh air. It's a very cool new experience.
All around I love the support I get with these shoes. I do believe they have been the best gift John has given me thus far. I am so in love with them.
I also wanted to invite y'all to stop back in tomorrow because I'll be talking about how I'm trying to lose this weight I've magically gained.
