Saucony is a good shoe. If you cant afford a new shoe, buy new insoles to give a bit more support. Any runner store or sports mart. Roadrunnersports.com is a phenomenal resource for stuff, and has the best online catalogue evah for the running afficianado!

I have an athletic insole in the Nike's. The Saucony I have might be well worn but are also to big so I need to watch for sales on them :) Never needed an insole for them at all. Just put on and hit the treadmill.


I LOVE the scale again today. Think I might have busted my plateau... 171.2!!!!!! I am almost there!!!!!

172.0 Again I am going to say that my leg workout had me gain probably water weight. Today I woke up and just felt like I was crawling out of my skin cause I just wanted to move. But the more I was up moving around the more I just wanted to keep going which isn't exactly possible at my job. Really sore from legs yesterday that it did effect boot camp tonight. Tomorrow is weigh in day and I think that is one reason I am crawling out of my skin.....

Cardio: 32 min 2.66 km walk with dog, 22 min 1.88 km walk around neighborhood, 45 min fat burner program lvl 5 step mill, 30 min 5% incline 3.0 treadmill walk, 50 min boot camp

Yes I might have overdone it on cardio today but like I said I just needed to move around

I can say that the scale my trainer had me weigh in on are SOOOOOO off... really 179.4???? Going back Monday to reweigh so he can make sure the scale is right. He did take measurements today and I lost .5" around shoulders, .75" around my chest, .25" around my waist, .25" around hips and .25 around my quad... I think those were the measurements lol. My tummy was growling at that point and just wanted to leave. He thinks the spanx are helping already. Says I have a straight line from side view but think that had to do with the shirt lol. Going to take it easy the next 3 days on cardio and kill it tonight with the trainer for back and biceps. Pulling out foamy and will roll around on him today too and trainer said to bump up my glutamine today so that I can repair. Might need to invest in a better protein powder.....

Ok so today was a much needed rest day. I decided that since I was dressing up for a wedding I would dress up for work and running errands before work. Needless to say I got a TON of compliments. Still a little shocked about all of them. Nearly cried on a few.

That's great, Synny, I'm glad you're happy. Allow me to share a sage piece of advice from one smart woman to another: watch where the compliments come from.

I've done a few dramatic transformations in my day. I've grown my bright blonde, Barbie doll hair down the middle of my back and then cut it almost Annie Lennox short three times in my life. I've lost large parcels of weight--once, I dropped 280 pounds! (I dumped a 230-pound boyfriend and the fifty pounds that rode in with him.) I went from dressing uber-feminine and frilly to lounging around in relaxed sportswear 24/7 almost overnight. (It was cheaper and took less time in the mirror.) I did all this stuff because the timing was right and I felt like it. The bizarre and varied attention I got for it, however, unnerved me.

At first, the compliments were an awesome high, like crack cocaine, then they felt off for some reason. Then I realized who was giving them: people who never acknowledged my presence before suddenly thought I was pretty when I lost weight. Conversely, guys who flirted with me constantly at the gym treated me like crap when I cropped my hair. I realized then that physical attention is completely arbitrary and, subsequently, a really lame way to rate people. I made a mental note of who treated me differently when I changed my look and I dumped them from my life, both the complimenters and the haters. I was (and am) left with an amazing group of people who love me regardless of my physical appearance. I can become whoever I want and I never have to worry about them, they only notice when I'm happy. Now, THAT'S a compliment.

:love3:

Well all the compliments I got came from people who liked me before I lost all the weight. It really made my day when my friend I haven't seen in 3 yrs almost fell over when she saw me. She was like omg I really had no idea you lost this much weight. But yeah know what you mean about taking note of who treats me differently and when

That's awesome! Did they compliment you on your appearance before, too?
