I do what?

leave a comment »

I’m trying to figure out if I’m over pronating… who knew this could be so had to figure out on one’s own.
Next week, I’m going to Super Jock N Jill in Greenlake, I hope they can figure me out. I’m so done with blisters and my heels not fitting well in my shoes.

Welcome a new classic to the closet.

Hmm. If someone would have said the classiest plain black pump you’ll find at Nordstrom would be by BCBG, I might have laughed.

After deciding to try on women’s shoes more than juniors shoes, I found these. Totally classic, plain and versatile. No weird trendy embellishments, no crazy square toes, not pointy, and pretty damn comfortable.

They actually replace the last pair of classic black pumps I had… the ones my mom bought me in 1997, when I was a senior in HS. Hopefully, I’ll take amazing care of them and I’ll have them for 10 years as well…. until I’m 40?

hot damn, a post about shoes and ice cream!

Noting says day off like homemade coffee.

Nothing says awesome like making your breakfast in new shoes and your bathrobe. My mom insists that I dress up for this 75/55 party for my grandparents. She said no jeans. Ha, I’m an adult, I’m wearing jeans. I bought a new top(Macy’s Style and Co on sale for $9.99), which looking at clothes right now is crappy because I’m between sizes…. medium boobs, large shoulders, large but flat waist, and larger hips. Well, if since I got really frustrated I bought new shoes… and charged them to my mom’s Nordstrom’s account. I know she’ll like them and understand. Anyway, gotta break them in. They’ll be great for summer and I’ll get my use out of them. I could even go back and buy them in navy to go with the Ann Taylor Loft dress I’m wearing to Desirae’s wedding in August.

If anything, some of the people I’ll see at the 55th, I haven’t seen since the 50th. I was at my highest weight then. I’ll look hot!

Kevin bought me Ben and Jerry’s Cake Batter ice cream on Sunday. Worth 7 points a serving… and I think it’s totally worth it!

Running needs shorts.

leave a comment »

Newcastle + running + epsom salt bath = not to shabby.

I have decided that wearing Converse for 8 hours and then putting on my awesome Mizunos seems to confuse my arches. Are we flat and walking in circles? Or are we supported and running on the sidewalk?

I read something about drinking beer after running, I can’t remember what it said… but I’m determined to have one after every running adventure, even if they are still small. Beer is nice.

I drove my normal walk/run course and I’ve discovered that it is almost 2.5 miles. A 5k will be really easy. Sweet.

I really want a pair of running shorts with pockets. I know that they will be very unflattering, but if you choose to look at me when I’m working out it’s your own damn fault. But for my own reasons, I’m so mortified to try them on. I haven’t worn shorts in public in EONS! 10 yearsish? Like I’ve seen plenty of fat folks wearing elastic waist shorts but they have nice or decent legs. My legs are like sausage links covered in spider veins and bruises. Yum-o. I usually wear my awesome black Lucy capris and pants or my not as awesome blue capris… but shorts? I yearn for the days when my legs are a bit leaner! Shorts damnit, I want some shorts and I want them to look okay.

Eew, and I supposed in a few months I’ll need to buy a new swim suit that is more flattering and shows off my boobs… then one I have now is more for swimming laps and has a high neck.

I’ve started to rub calendula oil on to help my skin stuff issues. Plus, who doesn’t love soft skin?

It rubs the lotion on it’s skin or else it gets the hose again….
