New workout gear makes all the difference!


I am so ecstatic because yesterday I actually went and got fitted for new running shoes! 

After talking to Beth I was convinced that I needed to go.

If you have never been fitted you should!!!

Every time I have run in the past I have experienced pain in the outside of my right foot, so I decided It was finally time to do something about it. 

I went to a local running store and the guy who helped me was super helpful and knowledgeable.

He measured my feet and watched me walk to be able to determine which shoes I needed. 

I found out that the reason my right foot was hurting was because my shoe that I had been wearing was too narrow. It was literally squeezing my foot and pushing the tissue on the side of my foot down to the bottom.

 I actually measure a "wide" for my right foot and measure border line normal/wide for my left. 

"In a good shoe, I wear a size six, but a seven feels so good, I buy a size eight." Name that movie!

Get this: So girlfriend has been wearing a size 9 in shoes forever (all my shoes are size 9) 

When he measured my feet he said that I was a size 7.5ish and could possible wear an 8. Ummm What? So apparently I have been buying 9's for the width all along and never knew it, because every size smaller wasn't wide enough. 

He also determined that I needed arch support. I have medium arches. 

I just can't believe that I haven't done this sooner! I could kick myself.

Anyways, after I picked out my shoes, I saw the sports bras...

I have huge boobs and normally when I run I wear two sports bras (So uncomfortable!)

I found a Fiona by Moving Comfort sports bra that I really liked.  So Comfy! I had originally looked for the Juno by Moving Comfort but they were sold out.

The exact one I bought.

Any women that has a larger chest or a girl that just wants support and comfort should invest in this sports bra. Its AMAZEBALLS! Mines pink and I love it!

So after I finally get home I put on all of my new gear and headed out for day 1 of C25K outside. 

Nothing Hurt!!! My right foot that has been hurting me for so long had no pain! It worked! My boobs stayed in place and I was actually so comfortable! The sports bras I had been buying at Target don't hold a candle to the these. Check 'em out!

Unfortunately, my neighborhood is not flat. In E. Tennessee that's hard to find. 

I completed the entire C25K but it came with side stitches and huffing and puffing. It's so much harder to run outside than on a treadmill. This was a piece of cake on the treadmill.

I felt so energized after I finished. My legs definitely felt (and looked I'm sure) like jello!

All in all it was a great day!

Hot mess after  C25K. Rocking the Fiona sports bra!

My delicious lunch yesterday

The two new nail polishes I bought! Can't wait for summer.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful Tuesday!
