Holes. They are annoying. I get them a lot in t-shits – especially at the seams. But t-shirt holes don’t cramp my style I still wear ’em. Well, as long as they are not too revealing.
Holes in pants. I get those too.Not the crotch splitting type… fortunately. Mostly – holes are at the bottom of pants. Where my stiletto heel decided to make its mark.
I can live with that too – though I do try to by pants at the appropriate length –
Why am I writing a post about holes then? Well, it is simple.
I get them in these:
Yes. My sneakers. Not on the bottom from wear and tear. Nope. On the inside. In right where my heel is.
You may be wonder who or what the culprit is of said hole.
To be more precise – the heel of my right foot is the cause of these extremly annoying holes. (Warning – if you have any sort of aversion to feet, you may want to come back for tomorrow’s post.. I even disliked these unflattering pictures of my tootsies.. but I am desperate for help. If you have an suggestions as to how to beautify feet that are often running.. feel free to share)
You see, I have this large bump on the back of my right foot. It may not look so large in this photo – I guess my foot isn’t so photogenic from this camera angle.
So – these holes…
It begins as a wearing down of the soft material in the back of my shoe. Over time, however, the structure/plastic-y part of the shoe also wears. So – I am stuck with jagged edges digging into my foot while walking.. running, using the elliptical..
Can I get an OUCH!
It is a given that this hole will appear in my shoe. It has happened in every single pair of sneakers I have owned..for as long as I can remember.
I have changed brands of sneakers. The pair of Asics that you are seeing now – are actually a half size bigger then I normally wear. I figured if I gave “the bump” some extra room – I would be all set.
In fact, I just bought these sneaks 4 weeks ago. Yes- 1 month old. HELLO, HOLE!
I’ve mentioned it to doctors in the past- they don’t have much to say.
I am at a loss – and can’t keep shoving out money to get new kicks.
Have you ever had an issue like this? Do you have any advice on what I can do?!
Okay – enough with the sneaker/feet problem.
SCREAM if you are happy that tomorrow is Friday!!!!
Today was an uneventful day. I did however – get to that cardio kickboxing class that I had planned out in my goals for the week in my last Weekly Workout Wrap-up!
I am kind of torn about my feelings on it. I mean – I got a decent work out – but there were only 4 other people in the class – so it wasn’t too motivating of an experience. I can surely motivate myself – but the reason you take group classes – is to be with a group of people. I didn’t feel as if there was any more individualized attention from the instructor because there were less people in the class.
The class was 60 minutes – I wore my Polar F7. With a 10 minute bike warm-up pre-class, I burned 485 calories – with an average heart-rate of 146. My maximum heart rate was 167.
It was definitely a great way to mix it up – but I am not sure if I will become a regular of the class. The instructor said that this class is really iffy – sometimes there can be 25 people – sometime 5… like today. (There was actually only 2 when we started.. 3 people came late…)
Upon arriving home, I had a large task at hand.
Tomorrow – is the last day of school before Mother’s Day.. so it is time to bring the beloved plants back to school.
There was only one problem. ONE out of the 17 plants.. decided not to grow. It was time for me to move mountains.
Or – take one plant from a planter that had multiple growths… and move it to the empty one.
Strategy #1: Just pull.
Good thing there are a couple planters with a bunch of growth!
Strategy #2: Use a knife and cut the soil around one of the plants.
I am no expert.. and don’t know if this trans”plant” will last – I just need it to make it through the day tomorrow.. 😉
All 17 children can head home with a plant in hand!
Little bit of food lovliness to end our night:
Breakfast for dinner! Egg white omelet with spinach, cherry tomatoes, mozz cheese. Ezekiel Toast with honey and a naner 🙂
Have you been to a fitness class that you really just weren’t digging? Did you give it a few shots.. or just say nay?
