There are so many new things this month I have been using and loving, but I will pick the top 5 that have really helped me turn my fitness and weightloss around.
The Copco ColdCup is awesome! It's a refillable water glass with an awesome plastic straw that makes is so easy to bring water around. I was using so many water bottles and I really wanted to cut down on my consumption of plastic bottles. I purchased this cup from Bed, Bath and Beyond for $8 and I bring it everywhere. It makes drinking water much easier for me.
Couch to 5K has really been a beneficial tool in getting my lazy tush off of the couch and running. It's a slow program to motivate people to go from being lazy to being a runner in 2 months. The program stresses 3 weekly runs for about 30 minutes. It's just the right kind of exercise and gets me closer to my goal of running a 5k.
My running shoes...I love Asics...they are perfect for my higharches and give me great support. Of course I cannot wait for the day to get professionally fitted for the right running shoe, but so far my shoes have worked great in aleviating shin splints and pain in my high arches.
These headbands are Goody stayput headbands. I am growning out my hair and all my layers are held back by these bands while I run, lift weights or sweat. They are a great and cheap accessory for me.
