I'm in love!!!

No, I'm not going to gush on about my husband. (Tho, I do kind of like him!) I'm going to gush on about my new shoes!

They are super comfortable! I didn't want to go the gym today because my feet were hurting so bad yesterday. I did an hour on the treadmill and my shoes were slipping around on my feet. I ended up with some spots that were rubbed pretty raw. :( But, I got up this morning (a little bit later due to excessive snooze button punching!), put on my new shoes and went to the gym. I only had time to do the treadmill for 45 minutes. :( But, my feet didn't hurt at all. They actually felt better once I put on the shoes. Sarah had recommended some socks for me to get, but they didn't have them anywhere around here. I did buy some athletic socks with moisture wicking. What a difference new shoes and socks make!!!

We were out really late last night. I tried Foot Locker. They had the Nike + shoes that I'm really interested. But, none in my size. The good news about going there first is that I finally learned my shoe size. All my life, I'd had wide feet. I've always bought wide shoes. But, apparently losing weight has changed the size of my feet as well. I went to Famous Footwear. I found the above shoes. I bought them, still wanting the Nike+. I figured that if I found the Nike+, I would still need a different pair of sneakers for things other than the gym. Then we went to JC Penney. They had a pair of Nike+ in my size. They are pink. I will have to learn to get over that. :( I bought them. Now I need the Nike sensor. I tried Best Buy, Target and Wal-mart. NO luck! :( I did buy an armband for my 2nd Gen ipod touch. But, my arm is still too big for it. I don't know if I should buy a different one online. The armband I bought doesn't have a lot of stretch. Maybe a more elastic armband will do the trick, but I would really hate to waste money on something I can't use. :( Stupid fat arms! When are you going to get smaller?!?!

I did some looking online this morning. It turns out I only need the sensor and not the receiver. The second gen ipod touch has a build in sensor. How sweet is that? Now I just need to figure out what to do about an armband. The sensor does me no good without the ipod. :(

Here are my Nike+ Shoes:

I'm jealous. I've wanted Nike+ shoes forever!

good on you for going to the gym today even though your feet were bugging you. i've been known to curl up in fetal position at the foot of my bed when avoiding gym time!

I finally went and got myself sized at a running store - Fleet feet. They had me try on shoes ad run in the store to see how my feet looked. I got a super light pair of New Balance that they suggested. Justw aiting for them to show up at my doorstep any day. My skechers are cute but not really made for running :-)

I think I will get sized at a running store after I lose more weight and know I'm serious about it. :) It sounds like fun, tho.

Jenn, it was fun. On top of it, just get them to tell you which shoe(s) are good for you. Then, buy them online. My New Balance were going to be $99 at the store + tax. I found them on shoes.com for $8- w/free shipping and free return if they don't fit right and NO tax!!! On top of it, I went through ebates, which agve me 10% cash back on my purcahse.
