Lazy Days and Tootsie Repair

I just wanted to start by saying how happy I am that so many of you are as obsessed with Jack’s Mannequin/Something Corporate as I am.  If you’re not, you should be!

Though I thought my workout and motivation mojo had returned, it was really hard to get my butt to the gym today.  I wanted to start running outside this week, but it has been really rainy!

Instead, today I did some elliptical cardio for an hour, and after class I will be doing some strength training with good ol’ Jillian Michaels! I need to get my body (and mind) back in gear!

Another reason I feel lazy today: I have two cuddly kittens that I don’t want to leave! And another cuddly big man cat will be coming home shortly post-neuter. I am anxious to see my brave little man!

I hope the weather looks up soon because I bought a new pair of kicks.  Well, they are the exact same pair as I had, but I love my Mizunos! I need to break ‘em in.

Here’s where it gets a little gross:

I hope I don’t get bruised toes and blisters with my new shoes! I can’t tell you how many toenails I have had fall off because of bruising.  I just got some new running socks and I hope that helps. I have even been to a running specialist to see which shoes would be best for me.  The specialist advised that I up my shoes by a half size.  I did that, too, but I still get nasty toes!

Anyone out there know the secret to no blisters and bruises on my tootsies? My poor feet need some help!

  1. Oh my goodness, cutest kitties ever! I just love their fuzzy little faces! 🙂

    I’m no help on blisters/shoes… I have zero experience on that one.

  2. AWWWWW I love the cats.
    Have you thought of trying vibrams? Maybe it wouldn’t do that to your toes. They take a while to get used to and they don’t work for everyone, but I love them! Never had any blisters or anything with them. That’s just what works well for me personally.

  3. Goooo those cookies are adorable!
    I hope those shoes are helpful for you, I have had those kinds of problems before too

  4. Your kitties are so cute! I started wearing a half size bigger in running shoes a couple of years ago and I loooove the extra room! As for toenails, I keep mine cut short! As for blisters, I only buy Wright Sock socks – they are pricey, but so worth it! They have a few different types, the WrightSock Lite is my favorite 🙂

  5. Er

    I love No More Trouble Zones! I haven’t done it in awhile, but I remember being so sore the first few times lol

  6. LOVEEEE Jack’s Mannequin!!!! I love them. I need to update my music …

    I wish I had a tip for you about your toes 😦 Hope they get better soon!!

    And um, you lazy day sounds like mine! Love it!

  7. One of my friends has major toe issues with running – losing toe nails, blisters, everything. I don’t deal with it too much but I feel so bad for you guys!! I hope these new shoes work out for you.
