Day 5 of 84 - We can breathe now!

You know that situation I've alluded to?  It's finally resolved!  And we can breathe again.  We've both felt that we've been holding our breath for about the past 5 weeks.  We (me, actually) had gotten into a financial mess.  We were one step away from refinancing a couple of weeks ago.  Then someone pulled the rug out from underneath us.  That's when the stress got out of control.  But I'm a firm believer in things happening for a reason.  We're in a better position financially now than we would have been if the original plan had gone through.  So now it's back to life!
I bought myself a pair of Reebok Easytone shoes.  My other runners were dead.  A while ago.  And I love to walk but haven't been able to because my old runners had lost their support and it was doing more damage than good.  And I've been waiting for the refinancing to go through before spending just over $100 on a pair of runners.  So I got them tonight.  WOO HOO!  I was intrigued by the Easytones.  I didn't know whether they were just another gimmick or not.  They're supposed to improve your glutes and hamstrings.  here's the trick tho.  You actually have to be active and eat healthy too.  By themselves, just walking a little here and there ... yeah, nothing.  But combined with everything else ... we'll see.  The jury's out but I thought it would be great to try them.  They do keep me a little off balance (like I need any help in THAT department!) and my legs feel a little stimulated.  So I'm going to wear them for my cardio workout tomorrow and see how it goes.  But I'm pretty sure I'm keeping them.  How exciting!
We went out to Kelsey's for dinner tonight.  I remember why I don't eat like that any more.  'cause I can't.  I should be in bed sleeping by now (its 10 pm)  ... I'm on my way there after I finish this post ... but less than an hour ago, I felt like a stuffed pig.  I can't do this any more.
Other than dinner, my nutrition wasn't bad today.  except for too much coffee.  I missed my upper body workout this morning.  Lack of sleep.  Yes, I wimped out.  But I'll be up tomorrow bright and early to do my cardio workout in my new shoes!  YAY!  I haven't updated my journal in the last couple of days either.  But I don't care!  Things have settled and I will get back at it tomorrow.
So remember to stay active, eat healthy, breathe, drink lots of water, get sufficient sleep, and remember you're special and loved and deserve the very best that life has to offer!
Until tomorrow.....


  1. Yeah baby! Now what do we do with the 350 boxes of Kraft Dinner?

    Nice shoes BTW.


  2. The shoes. I have seen them on TV and i've read varying reviews of them. Let us know if they help!

    I'm not going that route but I have been wearing ankle weights for some of my ellitpical work because I think that might help me tone OR burn more calories (I'm not really sure)
