Hello my lovelies! I was super excited to get going this morning because I had something special to use – new running shoes!!
My grandma bought me new shoes for my birthday, so I went and got re-fitted yesterday. First, they filmed me running on the treadmill (which I’ve never had done before), and then analyzed my gait.
She then filmed me again running in their normal running shoes with my orthotics in.
Now I’ve been running in Saucony Stabils, with absolute maximum support and motion control, for the past 3-4 years. The girl who was helping me was quite surprised I was running in such supportive shoes, especially with my orthotics. She said I really only needed mild to moderate support shoes along with my orthotics to fix my pronation.
I then tried on a ton of shoes. I also have a very narrow heel, so many shoes (especially Nikes) slip! The pair I really wanted also didn’t come in a big enough size (I’m size 11-11.5! Bigfoot over here). I ended up with my some new Brooks!
I’ve never ran in Brooks shoes before, so we’ll see how this goes!
This morning I had 1/2 a hemp bagel spread with almond butter and Crofter’s jam shortly before heading out.
I tried out some soynut butter which I was sent to review on my bagel first.
But I just couldn’t get into it. I’ve been trying it on multiple occasions in all different ways. It tastes exactly like soynuts – which I do like! But I’m just not a huge fan of the nut butter version. Even though it does have excellent stats! Check out the fiber and protein!
I’d still recommend trying it out if you like soynuts! Tastes just like it.
Post 3 mile run, 25 minute foam roll & stretching came lunch.
Leftover pineapple, black beans and chicken.
Yummy yummy in my tummy!
But still very hungry hungry an hour later.
A serving of yogurt and Kashi blueberry flakes cereal.
Forgot I had this sample from forever ago!
Followed by an apple of sorts.
Other afternoon snacks at work consisted of –
Iced SF hazelnut coffee with half & half
Cranberry heart thrive
And a banana to tide me over until dinner.
And oh what a yummy dinner it was!
Buttnernut squash lasagna (I’ll post the recipe soon)
The rest of the night was full of
my future boyfriend Idol,
Now I need your help!!
Now it’s vote time! I’ve been shopping for a birthday dress for this Friday’s celebrations 😉 But I can never make decisions – it’s hard! So I’m asking you all to give me your opinions. Please ignore my dirty, hat hair! And my awkward looks since I didn’t know what face to make.
Option A: (closed eyes!) Yes, it has a zipper down the front – odd but I like it! And the whole body portion is kind of scrunchy. With a frilly bottom.
Option B: Looks short on the right side, but I think it was bunched up a bit. Also I was obviously caught in the middle of awkward laughing. Ummm…I obviously don’t channel Miss Kailey well.
And here I slouch…
All right peeps, opinions opinions! And if you feel the need, you can give me your reasonings 😉 I am quite indecisive, haha.
