Fitness: Trainers

Working out lately has been hard. Spending a week in a hospital can certainly set your fitness game back and the scale reflected that when I got back home. So I’m planning on sneaking in a few trips to Milestone this weekend (Rhythm Ride on Sunday morning anyone?) and trying to accumulate as many steps as possible on my Fitbit (lost it back in February and found it when I cleaned out a closet a couple weeks ago. I’m now constantly checking how far I’ve walked). I’ve also tried hopping on the treadmill a couple times this week to get back moving.

I’m a big fan of running but I’ve found that the running shoes I have (and love) are pretty piss poor when it comes to more intense workouts. I absolutely love Milestone’s 20/20/20 class but those last 20 minutes my feet start to ache since my shoes don’t provide the necessary support. Next week I’m planning on crushing the class schedule but before I spend another minute doing burpees and hop squats, I need to invest in a new pair of trainers. It’s especially key for me since I have flat feet. So without some support, my arches ache and I tend to get blisters (I know, gross but it happens).

I’ve had some local friends ask me about whether I still loved Milestone and I can wholeheartedly say: yes, I am still obsessed and I’d love it even more if someone could clear my schedule and make time for me to get there more often. The childcare option is so clutch that Drew & I use Monday night cycling as our date night (the struggle is real).

Going the wrong way this week. took a little set back with that week away so I’m planning on getting my butt in gear these next couple weeks.

Inspiration + Shopping: Shoe Obsessed

Like most women walking the earth, I love shoes.

There’s just something different about a new pair of shoes. And unlike some clothes, shoes can totally transform a look. My little closet is packed the brim with shoes but that has never stopped me from hunting for the next “perfect pair.” As a kid, I always opted for a fresh pair of kicks over any other new closet addition and right now, I’m feeling that same way. I’m trying to stay strong in my resolution to avoid buying more clothes but the it’s harder to fight the urge to splurge on a new pair of shoes.

As much as I love boots, I’m dreaming of bright colored heels (worn without tights), flirty flats and anything with bows. A girl can dream right?
