Do you know the different between shoes? I see many people wearing the wrong shoes for different activities. That’s why I was so jazzed to get a pair of the Asics GEL-Fit Sanas. The GEL-Fit Sanas are an amazing training shoe for all those cross training activities in your life. The shoes are made of stretchable mesh.

The shoe retails for $80 and is available in different colors. There will be a color for everyone! The shoes I received were navy/white/hotpink!

#Ad Did Group Power in @asicsamerica GEL-Fit Sana this morning! I'm loving these training shoes. #FITwithAsics #fitfluential

The shoes are light and flexible. The shoe adapts to your foot to give a barefoot like feeling but it’s a truly well-supported shoe from toe to heel. I really enjoyed wearing them for my strength/weight sessions. I was in constant search of a well supported shoe that wasn’t so bulky and this ended up being the perfect shoe for me. I was really surprised, especially since it came in my size of 11.5.

I really loved how light the shoes are because it really felt like I wasn’t wearing any at some points. Plus, the shoes are really cute! Every girl loves a cute shoe, even when she’s working out. I usually don’t get the fashionable shoes because I end up wearing men’s shoes most times because my foot is so large.  The GEL-Fit Sana will take you from the gym to out on the streets while still looking great!

I also took the shoes for a roll on the row machine, elliptical and a turn on the stationary bike.  I don’t want you to think I’m pimping these shoes out for just weight lifting shoes because I did so much more in them.  This is a versatile shoe for your cross training activities! The shoes just slip on and fit like a glove.  There’s no weird rubbing to cause blisters or that too tight feeling.  It really does feel like you’re barefoot.  I can’t say that enough.  These shoes are just that LIGHT!

I never would have thought about purchasing this shoe but that’s because I’m a little close-minded when it comes to shoes. BUT I am glad this shoe made it’s way into my workouts because it’s going to be my go-to shoe for my cross training workouts. I really don’t think it gets any better than a light, fashionable, support adaptable shoe. Give it a try!

Dealing with maintenance mode

Dealing with maintenance mode

People are very curious to see if I’m still trying to lose weight.  I am here to answer that question: no! I’m in maintenance mode and I’ve been that way for almost two years now, I think.  Two years seems like a really long time.  It took me 13 months to hit my first goal weight and I continued to shed the pounds after that, not intentionally but I did still have more to lose.  At some point my body just stopped and that is how I knew it was time to maintain. It was a hard switch to make…
