Nike shoes Feed


I am sitting on my balcony of the room with my Starbucks tumbler filled with delicious hotel lobby coffee. lol  I woke up at 6 am this morning.  Yikes! My friend was up too, and he pulled up the #ScoobyNatural episode of Supernatural. I've never watched the show before, but I'm a long time Scooby fan so I had to see it.  It was hilarious.  I loved it.  After watching that, I was totally awake and he was asleep!  I said phooey on this.  I'm not going to sit in the room and be quiet until he gets up.  I decided I'd take an early walk.  That is exactly what I did.  A six mile walk baby! I walked to the Starbucks and back.  Let me tell you about that.

So, I get to the Starbucks. I've been to this one once before.  Nice location, busy.  I get up to the counter and I ask the barista if they happened to still have any cascara sryup left.  i figured he'd say, no.  Well, he says, "We just got that back in."  I goggled at him and said, "Are you SERIOUS"!?!?!?!?!"  lol  He said he was, so I ordered my beloved cascara latte with almond milk.  I got a venti since I had free drinks.  OMG was it delicious.  I was so happy.  That first sip just soothed my soul.  Ive been smiling ever since.  I sat in there while i drank my deliciousness.  I wrote in my trip journal and posted to Insta.  I then headed back.  I did stop in one Bargain Beachwear store but i didn't see anything I wanted... well... I saw a lot of things I wanted, but i only have twenty dollars on this trip. lol  I got baqck to the hotel and stopped in the lobby to fill my Starbucks tumbler with coffee.  The coffee here is just as good as I remember it from last year.  

I am sitting here squinting in the sun typing this.  i see people walking two cute weiner dogs on the beach. I love those weiners!  I got to pet and love on an adorable Golden Retriever at Starbucks.  She was a sweet old girl.   I'm not sure when my friend will wake up.  I'm starving as I've only had my latte, this coffee I'm drinking now and a granola bar that I carried with me.  I have leftover pizza from a late night order, but we have no plates to heat it up on. lol

Ryka shoes

So, I wore my Ryka shoes for today's walk.  They were really comfortable.  I didn't put the extra insole in them like I usually do with new shoes.  I get a Dr. Scholl's  athletic insole that I add to my walking shoes.  I was going to use the old ones until I could get a new pair, but the old ones are so worn out, they were fused to my Nike insoles. lol  I didn't feel like these shoes really needed them.  They had good cushioning and they were quite comfortable. It was really nice when I would accidentally stepped on rocks or other hard things not to wince.  

The soles of the Nike were almost worn through!  This is my first pair of Ryka.  I saw these and fell in love with them at the beach in June.  I had been to many different shoe stores and tried on all kinds of shoes.  I came across these and tried them on.  They felt good and looked good so I thought I'd try them.  I'm glad I did.  I like the feel of them. My ball of my foot on the right side has been giving me some trouble lately because of my worn out shoes.  It did bother me some on today's walk, but it wasn't too bad.  I am pretty sure that will work itself out now that I'm wearing good soled shoes!

All in all, I like the new shoes.  If I make it to the beach again this summer, I'll try to find some more.  I know I can order them online, but I really prefer to try on fitness shoes.  I can sometimes try on a gazillion pair before I find the right ones! I also did my daily #Blogilates workouts. :)  It was ab day.  It wasn't too bad, but I have a feeling I won't be saying that tomorrow when I sit up! :p


I didn't post the last two days.  I haven't really done anything new.  Just walking, workouts, walking, workouts, walking... you get the idea!  It turned a bit cold here.  It had been so nice, and then the last three days has been cold.  At least yesterday and today was sunny.  No rain.  Yay! I retired my Nike shoes today.  I bought them in May of this year and I've worn them for my daily walks ever since.  They have worn almost completely out on the bottom.  I posted a picture of them to Insta.  I also posted my new shoes.  

I found a pair of Ryka shoes back in June.  I have never seen or heard of them before I saw them in the shoe store at the beach. They look so nice and they are COMFY!  I can't wait to try them out on tomorrow's walk.  I'll try to remember to post tomorrow a review of how I liked them. If you don't follow me on Instagram but want to see what I post, look to the right.  I have a link to my Instagram and I also have a widget showing my latest posts.
