Just a few things I’ve been loving this week…
I got a new pair of shoes — Saucony Kinvara 3′s — so these ghost legs can start running again. I have flat feet and absolutely hate the huge, cushioned shoes running stores always want to put me in, especially since the last pair forced my feet into such a high arch that it actually made my foot bleed not even a mile into a run and caused some pretty bad knee pain.
I didn’t want a completely minimalist shoe since I already have Vibrams and Merell Pace Gloves, so I found these after doing a little research and am loving them so far. I did Jillian Michaels’ “No More Trouble Zones” in them last night and loved how they were so light while still providing a bit of cushioning that molded to my feet quickly. I’ll do another review once I run in them for awhile, but so far they’re awesome.
Big grocery shopping trips are so relaxing to me. I love taking my time while looking at all the new products and checking out the packaging. During my big trip this week I ended up getting:
almonds, wheat germ, kale, broccoli, cauliflower, strawberries, tofu, tempeh, coconut flakes, Greek yogurt, green bell peppers, apples, garlic, tomatoes, onions, eggs, egg whites, avocados, apple cider vinegar, tomatoes, whole milk yogurt (for Waves), sweet potatoes, mustard seed, oats, field greens, bananas, limes, and plums
