Yesterday was another spot on day..feels so great. Definitely improves my mood when I'm eating better. I went to my aunts yesterday and we WORKED OUT!! I havent been able to say THAT in awhile. She has a gym in her garage (all weights) and she showed me how to workout with free weights! (remember i never touched those at the gym because i didnt know how?!) It was AWESOME and we worked out for an hour. Feeling it today and i LOVE it. Also, i didnt go salsa dancing (didnt have guts to go alone) so my new thing that i tried was the Pilates Reformer machine! And i have to say, i absolutely loved it. My aunt bought one off craigslist for 70 bucks. Total steal. and it was a great workout and tons of fun..
Today, i took myself to Road Runner and finally made myself buy new running shoes. They did a whole 10 minute evaluation of my feet. They had computers analyze it all. I found out that i have a high arch and right foot dominant. Then they recorded my running on a treadmill and i saw that i run with my feet out so thats why i've been getting knee pain so they reccommended a stability shoe. Then i went over and tried on many different brands and they also said to go a half to a full size bigger than my usual shoe size and that will help with my numbness that i get in my toes. So I ended up getting very cool Nike shoes. AND they were nike plus!! So i got the accessory and now I have the chip in my running shoe and it connects to my ipod to tell me my time, my distance, pace and the calories i've burned. A voice tells you over the music you are listening to! Then i can plug it into the computer and it comes up in a Nike folder that keeps track of all my runs! I am SO excited about this! New motivation my friends!!! So happy with my snazzy shoes.
Oh ALSO, i've tried a new bar out. They are called "Kind Bars" and its fruit and nuts and they are delicious, 180 calories, definitely filling and healthy for you! No dairy, no gluten etc. I found them at albertsons by all the other balance bars, power bars etc. but I'm sure you can find them at sprouts, mothers etc. So yummy.
Hope you all are having a wonderful saturday!

    Road Runner sounds amazing! Had never heard of it so I looked it up and what do you know there is one in Thousand Oaks - Cool!

    I've heard about those Nike chips that go in your shoes and that is pretty cool that it keeps track of all that stuff and combines it with your Ipod! Awesome!

    So glad you got this jump start and are moving forward with that fire I love so much!!

    Wow is right! What a difference in the tone/mood of this blog compared to your blogs the past couple of weeks. I can feel your new motivation and I love hearing you like that. Those shoes sound amazing! I want some!! I take it you will be running again?! And, I saw that you joined our team for the 10k. Yay! That made my day! I was thinking ... you and I are about the same weight now and we have the same goal weight, so ... we should set some goals, dates to reach them by, and when we reach our goal weight we should go on a girls weekend someplace fun. That would give us something to look forward to and to work towards and we'd have to BOTH reach our goal in order to get the weekend so we'd BOTH have to stay on track. Seems like when you're on fire, I'm not and vice versa. It would be so awesome to lose these last 15 pounds with you.
