A while back I signed up to be a part of an awesome program that allows me to sample new products in exchange for me writing reviews on said product and I'm loving it! So far I've just gotten two small sample boxes (called voxboxes), but there are larger ones to qualify for. (I'm hoping to get the next one!) The first sample I got was of some mouth wash. The second was for these awesome Dr. Scholl's Active Series insoles.
They are so nice and comfy and are bresthing new life into my old running shoes! As some of you may know I have plantar fasciitis in my left foot, so exercising is sometimes a painful experience, but not anymore. These things are the best I've tried (and I've tried many insoles). I would recommend them to anyone suffering from foot pain or that are just thinking about giving insoles a try!
If you want to become part of Influenster, let me know and I'll send you an invite!

I did not mean to abandon this series for so long! Some of you may have been wondering if I'm still keeping up with my health journey. Sorry to leave you all in the dark! We've been staying busy here finishing up the school year, having Gabriel's birthday party, took our first real family vacation, had all the kids sick with colds/sinus infection for a week and had Josh away for a week for fire training in Texas. So, not a lot of blogging time for me.
I've been doing really well at keeping up with my exercise routine of working out on my elliptical machine for 20 minutes every morning except Sundays and have only missed 1 or 2 days since getting the machine! I've also been trying to stay active throughout the rest of the day and going on walks or playing outside with the kids later in the day. Eating well is also going well, even while we were on vacation! Juicing has fallen by the wayside for a bit, but I'm hoping to get back into that soon.
I've had days where I felt like nothing was improving, no weight was being lost and just plain discouragement, but I pushed through it and kept working and am now starting to see the affects. I feel like I'm slimming down, but thanks to being a taller person haven't gone down in my clothing size yet. Finally yesterday, curiosity got to me and Elli and I walked over to the fitness center here and used their scale to check my weight... I lost TWENTY pounds! I can't believe it! I was expecting maybe 10, but not 20!
|I have lost the equivalent of 2- 10 lb bags of potatoes!!!|
