The Nike Store has a decent selection of workout shoes. I bought a pair that allowed for stretching movements that are usually difficult to do with regular gym shoes. I actually tried them on first, went on the treadmill they had at the store, stretched side to side, and decided they would do.
Also, there are great reviews on the most oddest looking shoes I've ever seen. My friends swear by them. I'm actually going to buy a pair just to see if all the hype is true.
Protein Smoothies are the way to go for post workouts. I use Jay Robb's Whey Protein or ProGrade Workout with Almond or Coconut Milk. Then I throw in whatever fruit I want, grounded flaxseed, and a few cubes of ice.
The Lean Kitchen Queen posted a real good smoothie on her site- The Thermoccino Smoothie. It's a new blog I found and her cookbook has 21 different types of smoothies that are all delicious!
• 1 scoop Vanilla Iso-Smooth Isolate Protein (you can use what you prefer)
• 1 shot of espresso
• ¼ cup of greek yogurt
• Pinch of stevia
• Pinch of cinnamon
• 5 ice cubes
Blend and Enjoy!
The only way I overcome my addiction to Coca Cola Classic is by making my own Tazo's Passion Iced Tea at home. I put in a packet of Stevia to sweeten a bit and the soda craving goes away. It's really helped me to shed pounds.
