Putting my best foot forward
It’s a lot more enjoyable to me than running on a treadmill every day. Prioritizing my physical fitness is very important to me, so I make sure to incorporate some sort of aerobic exercise activity at least 4 days per week. I also try to consume plenty of fruits & vegetables, along with drinking enough water throughout the day. A great, comfortable pair of sneakers, like the Women’s Revolution 3 Running Shoe, gives me the confidence to focus on my tennis game & wholeheartedly enjoy the outdoors!
After completing a few exhausting sets of tennis, there’s nothing more fun than sitting on edge of the court and chatting with my friend. As a mom, I’m used to talking with the kids about cartoon characters & magical kingdoms, so it’s always a nice change to have some adult conversations. We usually wind up talking about our kids, our favorite TV shows, and our summer vacation plans!
That day was a really hot one- temps soared well into the 90’s. So after tennis, I decided to head to my favorite coffee shop. During a hot summer afternoon, there’s nothing better than sitting in a cold, air-conditioned space, sipping a sweet iced coffee. I bring along my smartphone and catch up on some blogging tasks: respond to blog comments, consult my editorial calendar, check my social media channels, etc. With my iced coffee, my smartphone and my fabulous sneakers, I have everything I need to make the most of my day.
At this point, it’s almost time to go pick up my kids from school, but before I do, I decide to take a nice, leisurely stroll through the park. Sometimes the stress of everyday life can get to me, but I always find that walking in open air is a fabulous way to unwind. While I walk, I focus on my surroundings: the beautiful flowers that line the trail, the cool shade provided by the big trees, the sounds of distant birds, etc. Paying attention to the sights & sounds of nature is always a calming activity.
I bring along my favorite glass bottle and fill it with water flavored with lime & mint. Flavoring my water with herbs & mint is a great way to motivate me to stay hydrated, especially during the hot days of summer. My awesome sneakers provide enough support for everything from a strenuous game of tennis to a leisurely stroll. And they’re gorgeous, too!
At this point in the day, it’s time to pick up my girls from school. Once we get home, we all decide to go outdoors and draw on the sidewalk with chalk. Seeing their creativity and imagination come to life is always so much fun! My sneakers have come with me everywhere today. When I have a fabulous shoe that is supportive and totally attractive, I don’t have to think about my footwear throughout the day. I can slip these sneakers on early in the morning and then spend my day enjoying the precious moments with my friends & family. Like making pink hearts on the sidewalk with my daughters!
Whether I’m playing a competitive game of tennis or drawing magical kingdoms with my daughters, my summer days are full of fun. And my shoes need to be able to keep up with me and empower me throughout the day. Here’s a close-up of the Women’s Revolution 3 Running Shoe that I chose from Famous Footwear. I love that they feature a comfortable mesh upper with cooling knit panels. Thanks to the padded collar and cushioned insole, this sneaker is so comfortable to wear every day all day long.
