Boysenberry magic shoes
Happy Tuesday all!
Yesterday was pretty productive. I got some Christmas crafts done. (Yep, still workin' on those.) I was bummed that the Christmas in July Christmas music was over with on the music channel. It helped set the mood when I was working on them.
I think today and tomorrow I get my new shoes. When you have big, wide feet and don't want to look like Walt Disney threw up in technicolor on your feet, your choices are very limited. Basically like three. Here's an old lady, Herman Munster clunkerf**k shoe. Here's a pair with velcro on them. Here's the ones you're going to buy. I was literally in tears after looking for three days straight online. The doc recommends Brooks based on my overpronation and needing a wide toe box but those are either boysenberry colored or black. God forbid they should carry white ones. So those will be my workout shoes (the black ones) then the Saucony Women's Grid Omni Walking Shoe(replacing them) but I'm putting in some pronation orthotics in there to try to correct the massive issue that is contributing to this horrid condition. Pffft.
We did Walk Away the Pounds and when I was doing the bent side steps, the ankles said "nope, stand up fool." It was the kind of pain that tells me I need to get on the balance board...which you know, is off limits right now? *bangs head against wall*
I noticed we had a buttload of Fairlife skim milk and I had a goodly amount of extra calories for the day and the Mr was low so I changed up dinner. Instead of Chinese with shrimp, I did the Mr's requested lemon pepper pasta with homemade roasted garlic alfredo sauce.
Man, I can't believe how easy homemade alfredo is. We don't have it often but I'll never buy that stuff again!
Then I streamed about 2 hours worth of 80's commercials from YouTube. OMG, I want to go back. Calgon...take me away!
What are your favorite everyday walking shoes? Any other overpronators have any suggestions for shoes?
