Shoe Review: Adidas PureBoost X


Women's Adidas Pure Boost X

I know, I know… y’all are aware of my love for cute Nike shoes, but the thing is beyond the Nike Free 4.0 Flyknit or 5.0 (which I do like) Adidas are just my jam.  They fit my feet SO well, which is why I always suggest trying on several brands & styles to find out what fits YOU best!  Go to a good store with a huge selection and just try on everything.  Then once you know your size in a particular brand… you can always shop online for the best deals.

Anyway, these Adidas PUREBoost X’s are brand new and specifically designed for women.  There’s a running version (which I haven’t tried) and a training version, which is the one I purchased.  You’ll notice they have a floating arch, which is kinda like walking around on a cloud.  I wore them for leg day and a bit of cardio and felt stable and well balanced in my new kicks.

You can wear them with or without socks, but they are very well ventilated and are meant to have a sock-type feel on the foot.  The material is super comfortable to wear, so I chose to try them without socks.  I wore them for over an hour yesterday, 1st time wearing the shoe, and my feet felt awesome!  No blisters, no sweat, no discomfort!

I feel like I could almost throw all of my other shoes away (but I won’t), because these are SO awesome.  

So if you’re in the market for a new training shoe… these get an enthusiastic 👍🏼TWO thumbs up👍🏼 from me!  In fact, I might need a few more colors, dontcha think?!?!  ;)

21 Day Fix Approved Turkey Tostadas

Meal planning & prepping is a SNAP with the 21 Day Fix!!  I eat what I like (tacos!!!🌮🌮) and I can still make it all work... chocolate & wine for Valentine's Day included 🍷🍫

It's not about dieting (they're boring, don't work, typically involve unhealthy boxed foods & you end up eating everything but the kitchen sink by dinner because you're starving or deprived), but making a healthy lifestyle change is what it's all about 🙌🏼 

So, here's my 21 Day Fix breakdown for lunch, Leslie's Turkey Tostada:
💜1/4 purple: salsa
💚1 green: chopped bell peppers
❤️1 red: ground turkey, seasoned
💛1 yellow: 2 baked tostada shells
💙1 blue: avocado
