My cycling shoes have arrived!!!! I ordered them at the end of January. D2 Shoes sent me the measuring kit and foam forms for me to give them the size and shape of my feet. Thats right they are custom made for my feet. I sent in the foam and such mid February and I have been waiting ever since. Seems they are very popular and although they have been trying to add staff and keep up … well. I wasn’t too upset as my injuries make it hard for me to walk and bike riding is not much better. I am really excited about this so I tried them on and modelled them around the office. They look great with my black dress. It is amazing to have a pair of shoes with the arch support in the right spot and no crushed toes!!! I have trouble even buying running shoes for these monster feet of mine. All the better to not tip over I say. I guess this means I have to show my sorry face in spinning class again after a long break.
I have been meaning to write about self-hate for a while, but I just have not felt really qualified to speak on the topic. I have had people tell me that I don’t like myself or that I have low self-esteem. I think maybe they are making an assumption based on the way I look. I am a complainer maybe that is what they see. I also make jokes about the indignities of being fat. I find it funny. Maybe my sense of humour is warped. The thing is that I really like myself. I would rather be slim and in the best shape possible, but I don’t really see this body I live in as being a big part of the definition of who I am. I just consider it the house I live in. On the outside it needs a lot of work because it has been neglected but that is just cosmetic. The foundation is rock solid. The interior is clever and artistic and colourful and well really pretty amazing!
This is the first day of the work week for Canadians so instead of Moanday Links Storm we are having a Bluesday Link Storm! If you are looking for unique fitness clothing, shoes, fitness equipment, music, nutrition and food or new exercise ideas you may want to go to the CanFit Pro Consumer Fitness and Wellness show at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre on Saturday, August 18th from 8:30AM to 5:30PM for free. Just follow the link below and on the upper right it says Free Ticket. Fill out the form and bring it with you to the show. I have been in the past and had a great time. I was in love with the yoga wear on sale. Sorry they generally only go up to size large. The fitness and dance demonstrations are amazing. You can participate in the demonstrations just be aware that most people that are at this event are fitness pros so they are going to be able to follow along with little instruction. There is a lot of fitness equipment to try on for size and talks by your favorite fitness personalities. http://www.canfitpro.com/en/trade-show The Huffington Post has a great on-line series of article called Becoming … Continue reading
