It's a new year, and like most of us, I am determined to lose and/or tone up this extra cushion that I have aquired over the past year. I found a great new way of eating that will not only boost my metabolism, but won't make me feel like I'm starving. I even dusted off my old workout clothes and suprising, they still fit. (Gotta love material that streches! LOL!) So I think I'm ready to get my sexy back until I look down and notice that I don't have any proper tennis shoes. Anyone who knows me knows that I'm a boot/flip-flop/heel type of girl. The land of athletic shoes is a mystical place that I never had the desire to visit. But in order to truly commit to my new fitness lifestyle, I had to take a journey to the Nike Store. I walk into the store and I feel as if I have landed in Oz full of life, color, and every type of fitness apparel that I can think of. I wander to the back of the store and proceed to go up and down the aisles to find the perfect shoes. I didn't not realize that there were so many choices, everything from running shoes to cross training shoes to just everyday shoes. And each kind feels differently and impacts your workout differently. I must have looked as overwhelmed as I felt, because one of the salespeople as me if I needed any help. I quickly told them what I was looking for, and magically they found me the perfect shoes. Not only are they light weight, but they are very comfortable. They are a little bright for my taste, but with how amazing they felt, I decided to over look that. I was even more amazed when I went to the cash register and the salesperson told me that they were $25! I felt as if I just won the lottery! LOL! After having them for a couple months and doing my zumba excerises and running in them, I can honestly say that that was the best $25 that I have spent in a long time.
