A Little of This, A Little of That...



I'm down 3 more pounds...it is about time my body let go of some more weight! I always find it interesting how when you step up your workout routine, you don't always lose the weight immediately, and sometimes you can even gain... I am hoping I have gone over that plateau on the scale. I am feeling great, my clothes are fitting better, I am actually back in my size 4's! Woohoo!

I had a great 10 mile run yesterday. I love a long stretch of road. I love running in the desert. I love how I feel after a good run...exhilarated, accomplished, strong!

I went to the local running store the other day..I was in desperate need of new shoes. I have been wearing the Kayanos for the past 10+ years. They have changed the Kayanos in the past couple of years, so I wanted to see what the "professionals" had to say about a different style/brand. First of all, the salesman said I don't need a stability shoe...hmmm? So, he brought out several different brands of neutral shoes in my size and I gave them all a test run. The Mizunos felt way too flimsy, the Brooks were good, the Saucony's were great...then he brought out the Asics 2150's, (yes, these are a stability shoe, but not as much as the Kayanos). I have to say, I am an Asics girl! But they didn't have them in my size... It was Zappos to the rescue! I ordered them at 11:00 PM and they were here the next day. Can I just say I heart Zappos!

Hope you all have a fantastic week.

I know what you mean about the scale! I am just at the beginning of my weight loss but it is a little frustrating to start working out, eat better, and do all the "right" things and not see that scale move (or move in the wrong direction)!

That's pretty great about the size 4's :-)!!

Glad that you found a new pair of shoes and Zappos has definitely come to my rescue many times...

WTG on the 3 pounds. I am doing a Slim for Spring that my cousin is in charge of. I lost 3 pounds last week. But most weeks It's only one at a time. I was very pleased this morning for the weigh in. 3 weeks left. Zappos huh? never ordered from there. I will have to check it out. I just got the Asics Nimbus but my hip has been killing me. I think I need something different.
