Dealing With Stress At Work, Reebok Shoes For The Spartan Race, And ‘Sleep Like A Baby’ Workout


I apologize, but I will take a few moments to nag. *Please, bare with me!* It was a really stressful day at work yesterday. You know, that kind of a day when things are out of your control, and no matter how hard you try to do the best for your clients, it’s somewhat pointless.



I was trying really hard to act more energetic/happy, but my thoughts were focused on the negative aspect of the situation. Normally, I would be looking into one of the following ways to de-stress.

50 ways to take a break


However, this time around, the solution was much simpler: All it took to feel better was a hamburger, fries, coleslaw and BEER! I don’t even drink beer, but I’ve got to tell you, it did hit the spot. I am a happy person again! *Please, don’t judge! lol!*



*Sorry, couldn’t resist! But I really didn’t have much!*

Moving on to some fun stuff, when I was shopping for gifts for my family last Sunday, I FINALLY got myself shoes for the Spartan Race. Buying proper running shoes can definitely be challenging; but I finally settled on this pair.


They are super cute and light, with water drainage system. But the selling point for me was definitely the duragrip!

Can you tell I am a happy camper? Can’t wait to try them out to tell you more!!!

On the other hand, I paid attention to the issues this shoe has. According to one of the reviews, the ankle cap is somewhat high and can cause blistering, so I will definitely make sure to wear higher socks. Here is a product review by one of the ambassadors who participated and won some of the Spartan Races.

*Just in case: I bought these shoes on my own. I was not approached by the Spartan Race or Reebok to review or advertise their product.*

My workout today is going to be intense! *As always, taken from the Spartan Race guide.* After taking a look, I dubbed it ‘Sleep Like A Baby’ workout haha!
