Roommate Fitness and New Workout Gear


My roommates have recently been really into eating good and working out (they were before, but even more lately).  It's so great to have the support and motivation at home!  Ashley and I workout at the same gym so we've been able to go together a few times lately or see each other up there working out.  They both recently joined myfitnesspal so we are all friends on there and we have our heart rate monitors and our fitbits.  It's so fun!  I know that this is one more thing that will help keep me accountable and motivated to keep losing weight.  I'm excited that we can all do this together!

So since it's been about a year since I bought new tennis shoes, I decided that I needed some new ones.  A year ago I went to this store called Run On!.  You go there and they measure your feet and watch how you walk to get you fitted into the best shoe for you.  It's so great!  I have had problems with my ankles and even wore special shoes when I was little.  I also have really high arches, so it's important for me to get in a good shoe.  After having lost 75 pounds I figured that I might need something different or I might have worn my old shoes out.  So I went in and they measured my feet and I'm down half a shoe size!  My feet are already tiny, so I don't need to lose weight in my feet!  I never thought that I might lose weight there too, but I guess that's another NSV! :)  I bought the shoe they fit me in and then I found the exact same pair in a color that they don't produce anymore at the Nike Outlet for $20 cheaper.  So I bought both pairs so I can trade them out.



And of course I had to buy some matching shirts (I like for everything to be matching, haha)!  So here are a couple pics of my rockin' my new workout gear.  And yes, I'm that cheesy girl taking of picture of myself if the gym mirror!

  1. Love those pink ones!! I have small feet too...size 6 right now. Several years ago before I gained weight I could buy some shoes (mostly flip flops) in the kids section.

  7. Now that I'm working out more, I know I need a better pair of tennis shoes! One of these days, soon, I'm going to head to my local running shoe store to get the same kinds of "tests" done. I've heard that a true measurement will do wonders for all my aches and pains!
