Get Moving: Girls and their shoes.

Let's talk about fitness goals.
You've got all this awesome stuff going on lately.
You're trying to make the right choices in the kitchen.
You've been doing the 30 day challenges.  You keep doing them even when your arms are like jello.
So. Many. Push-ups.
You're getting out there, getting active, and seeing results.

Like many people, my goals have started evolving as I'm getting further into fitness routines and taking care of my over all health.

Don't worry, babes.  I'm not going to tell you about New Year's resolutions.
Frankly, I don't get them.
Just get up and do what you want to do.  You don't need a whole new year to start going after your goals, just to get your butt to the gym or start saving, or whatever it is you want to do.

But, I am going to talk about how things are changing for me.
What I want to get out of my workouts is different than it was six months ago.

Six months ago I wanted to get "toned".
I wanted a workout that wasn't too hard on my body.
Honestly, I wanted something that wasn't too challenging.
Something I knew I could do.

So, I signed up for 6 months at Pure Barre.
The workout I know and love.
Don't misunderstand me here, I think Pure Barre is a great workout if it lines up with your goals.
But, as time goes by, it just doesn't work for me anymore.

Now, I want to be strong.
I want to be fast.
I want to surprise people.

Being little, people always assume that I can't do things.
I want to prove them wrong.

So the first step for me was to challenge myself, and pick a high-intensity workout that pushes me to the limit.
I'm getting out of my comfort zone, and doing something I've never done before.
And I'm doing it alone.

Starting in February I'll be taking boxing classes at The Punch House, and I can't wait.
I'll definitely be sure and let you guys know how it goes.
It's guaranteed to be an adventure.

But before that, you guys:

I cannot even begin to tell you how badly I need new shoes.

My athletic shoes are terrible.

First of all, they're 5 years (at least) old.

Secondly, the heel cup on my right shoe is all smashed in.

Thirdly, I'm fairly certain they don't actually fit.

This is a real tragedy, you guys.  I sold fancy orthopedic shoes for five years in high school and college.  I should own the proper athletic shoes.
It's a disgrace.

So I started doing some research on it.  And by research I mean I asked a certain CrossFit guy what he recommends.  I want something that I can use for running but will also work well when I start boxing.

We landed on the Reebok Crossfit Nano Speed.

They're multi-purpose, light-weight, and durable.

But really, ugh, the colors.
They aren't the best.

But we're in luck!
You can design your own!

All the colors, girl.
I've gone a little freaking crazy with it and have 16 designs so far ( ! ) but here are some of my faves:

Mostly, I think the rainbow ones are obnoxious, and that's why I like them.
What do y'all think?

Oh, go ahead and design your own here.

Have fun, and let me know all about your favorite designs.
