New Shoes....etc....

I went on a shopping spree today. New running shoes (Pearl iZumi) (which have the colour of this font on the soles), new running bra (pretty blue) and new running socks (Running Room brand). Yay! I will be tearing up the trails now for sure. The lady who gave me my massage yesterday suggested that I get actual "running" running shoes. The shoes I had were really for walking.

I'm happy to report that I had a much better swim class today. Much, much better. We worked really hard. It was good though - it didn't feel as hopeless as last week.

So, I was busy sabotaging myself - really working hard at it too - and I realized that I really don't have time for self sabotage - I vacation again in 2.5 months. No time for monkeying around or feeling sorry for myself. I have a plan to end the week on program, so I feel pretty good.

On the German front, class last night was sehr gute. Today I bought index cards to help with memorizing my vocabulary. They are rainbow coloured cards. Oooo, the fun of it all.

So, it is sounding like Veronica Mars isn't going to make it to next season. Silly CW network. They need a kick in the ass.

Well, it is gorgeous outside and my new shoes are calling me to the open roads....well, to the bike path anyhow........

Have a healthy day bloggers.


  1. I agree with you on the cw being stupid they cancelled Reba...WTF...


  2. Awesome shopping spree. That's great. It's good that you've got your mind set on ending the week right as well.

  3. Great mindset about ending the week on program. Everytime you feel like going Off Plan, just remind yourself of your vacation, and how awesome you'll look if you stay OP for the next 2 months!

  4. Congrats on the new kicks! Good for you!!

  5. Ooh! I bought new shoes too! But I'm a couple of steps behind you on the road to excercise, I bought walking shoes =)

    I'm curious, are the socks "special"? I went to the store the other day to buy some good, thick socks for walking and they had all kinds of specially designed running socks. I never knew special running socks exsisted. hehe
