Did I ever tell you...

I joined a gym?

If you are done laughing now I will continue...

I joined a gym for some much needed away time from the stresses of work and because let us face it, My muscles could use a little stimulation after sitting in the studio day in and day out. The real shocker is I have actually been going to the gym! And I like it. The first couple of days my Nike shoes were really tearing up my feet. So I tell the Boss I need new workout shoes and he says "Maybe you just need to break these ones in." and I said back to him "These are like 4 years old, I got them when we first got married." So he says to me... get this "Yah, but you need to wear them more than 3 or 4 times to wear them in." huh hemmm... I can't repeat what happened after that because this blog is rated G for NO Violence. Embarrassingly enough the man was right. So I stuck it out another week with the Nikes but the Nikes wore me out and not the other way around. So I text the Boss a graphic picture of my bloody socks and shoes and my ouchy foot and he text me back in his queasy grossed out text tone "Yeah u need new shoes-" So glad we agreed that time Boss ;)

I immediately head on over to the shoe store to try on all the latest athletic shoes and one shoe stood out above allllll the rest as far as fit and comfort. That would be the Ryka running shoes. They were simply divine. But I didn't want running shoes (not quite that devoted yet) because I stick to my studio classes. So I go online and do a little research and I am blown away by the concept behind the Ryka shoes and the women who design them and guess what! They have studio shoes! So then I hit up Amazon.com because I know they will have the lowest prices and I buy me the Ryka Studio Flex Low in Black.

They got to me in TWO days and my feet have been pampered ever since. So that is why you will find my Ryka shoes in my Amazon List of Favorites in the left sidebar. I'm obsessed. Currently converting my sisters over to the dark side. And when I say dark side I mean Black because I think black athletic shoes are sophisticated and sexy and they go with everything (because when you are red, hot and sweaty at the gym at least your shoes still look good). That last bit about the dark side and sexy workout shoes may be a bit of fluff... But aren't they pretty?


Ok. Shutting up now.

Disclaimer: Apologies to the Boss for throwing him under the bus for what he said about me not working out. Ever. In his defense he was right and he meant it in the sweetest way possible. The truth hurts, (sorry I punched you babe! jk)  I don't punch. Anymore.

I have to say I have been looking for black gym shoes for a long time... Impossible to find! They definitely match workout clothes better. Thanks for the heads up.

I have to admire your dedication, Becki. I have a pair of New Balance I bought only because I was pregnant and they were pink and gray. They haven't seen sunlight in at least a year.
I really ought to consider taking your advice. And maybe the Boss's too. LOL!
