Upgrade

This is the replacement. I am very sad to see my extremely cute pink Nike's go. But it needed to be done.

I would like to think the Walking Co. that let me use their technology to see how my weight was being distributed on my feet. My left foot is actually flatter than my right foot! They had me try some insoles that were amazing. The only problem is they cost as much as my shoes.
So I decided to see if I could either get much cheaper shoes so I could afford the insoles, or find shoes that didn't need them.

Next I would like to thank Macy's for completely ignoring me for about 10 minutes, but also for not asking any questions about my return when they did finally acknowledge me. Basically a hassle free transaction.

Last, I would like to thank Lady Foot Locker for providing lots of information and being very patient with me as I tried on several pairs of shoes and even ran around their store a bit. Sadly, they had some really cute pink ones, but they didn't have my size and I would have had to wait several days for them to ship to me. I didn't want to have any excuse to miss a workout. So I settled on the purple ones. They look much more pink out of the context of the store and much more pink than the picture makes them look. So I am happy with this choice. I'm going to try them for a week and see if I should go back and get the arch support insoles that she suggested I try with them.

Day 10

I got some much needed me time today. My mom came with me to look at countertops for the kitchen remodel that feels like is never going to happen and then took the kids so I could go to my chiropractor appointment without them. I love my mom.

I have been really stressed about our moving timeline, the start of school, and the money tied to all of it. I feel a bit paralyzed right now, there's not much I can really do until there's a bunch to do at once. It makes it kind of difficult to really enjoy my last few days of summer. So does not eating ice cream. Or anything that gives me joy.

I took advantage of the little bit of "me time" and went to Costco to replace the mass amounts of fruit my kids eat. (yes, I spend my "me time" grocery shopping) I'm already starting to dread having to feed them when they're teenagers. It was a bit more brutal than I had anticipated. Who the hell decided to put the pastries right next to the produce?! Really?! I could h…

Day 3

Today reached 106ºF outside. We don't have air conditioning. It sucked.

We stayed in to avoid the heat and left the house in the afternoon for my chiropractor appointment. I made sure to pack whole30 friendly snacks for me and the kids and took a very large cup of ice water.

I got my results from my x-rays last week and the scoliosis that was under control a year ago is back with a vengeance. (Yay for a year of having no time whatsoever to schedule an adjustment!) The good news is that it's treatable. The bad news is that treatment is expensive and I don't know if I can afford it. Yay stress.

After a very very long appointment at the chiropractor, I decided we should beat the heat at Ikea. We're in kind of a limbo period where I can't really do much to prepare for moving yet, but the Ikea kitchen planning tool online has kept me feeling like I can do something while we wait and I had some questions about cabinets anyway. It's therapeutic. But, yet another sourc…

Why Whole30?

I'll consider Monday my trial-run (although this proved a bit devastating for Charlotte). I didn't realize that pasture butter was only okay if clarified (milk solids are a no-no) and that pretty much all bacon has added sugar.

I procured the book from the library and dug in. Let me just say, this book feels like it was written by real people. There's a whole chapter dedicated to walking you through how you'll probably feel from day to day and I really like that. It reminds me of pregnancy books that tell you how your body may change each month and how your baby is growing. It's helpful to have an idea of how you may react to the changes and why.

"Day 4 to 5: Kill all the things  ...You walk into the kitchen and, upon being greeted by the smiling face of your significant other, you are suddenly overcome with the desire to punch them in the face for being so darn cheerful this early in the morning." They know me.

Having done every diet under the sun and sw…
