Hope and Change.
Hope and change. That’s what I call these.
I know that’s a lot to expect from a shoe but these aren’t just any shoes. These are my favorite tennis shoes, Brooks Cascadia. Actually my third pair of these comfy, bouncy, sturdy, make me a little taller, empowering shoe. Did I say they were my favorite?
Anyway, I recently purchased this pair and before you go checkin’ ’em out, gawk at the price and say…
“What? She’s not a runner. She’s hardly a walker. How can she justify the cost? Who does she think she’s foolin’?”
Please note that…
#1 when I purchase shoes, any shoes for that matter, I’m making a commitment. I only buy new tennis shoes about every 2 years.
And #2, when your feet are unhappy, the rest of you follows. That’s one of my mantras and I’m stickin’ to it.
Back to the hope and change…
My hope was that a brand new, springy pair would encourage me to get moving. Already I’ve surpassed last weeks one day of exercise with 2 days this week so far. It’s all about baby steps people.
The change? Well, to the state the obvious for those that know me in real life, a hiney change. Smaller, less jiggly.
It’s a fine goal to be sure.
I can almost feel my butt getting smaller already.
Do you have any new goals? Or old ones you’re working on? How’s it going?
