I was so excited when the postman delivered these gorgeous Pilates shoes!

You see, I have foot issues. I hate bare feet…and the thought of standing bare foot and doing Pilates or Yoga makes me shiver…so I tend to just slide around in socks and do the best that I can.

But not anymore. I took these beauties with me this morning and was incredibly impressed! :-)

Not only did the packaging make me smile…

20140614-172832.jpgSo I managed foot slides, roll-downs, the clam…all sorts of moves in my Pilates class today, without any sign of slippage. I also had a little thought, as I was trying to point my foot during a certain move, that it was the closest to feeling like a ballet dancer that I would ever get! ;-)

Actually, I have found myself wearing them around the house too…I am not really a slipper person, as my feet get too hot, so these are perfect for my slippery wooden floors at home.

I have to say a massive ‘thank you’ to Lisa and Eleanor at Daisy Roots – I was really cheeky and asked them for a pair in return for a review…something that I have never done before. I did warn them that I was incredibly honest, and that if the shoes were a bit pants, I wouldn’t be telling any fibs in return for a freebie! They have faith in their Pilates shoes…and so do I now. If they can prevent my not very stable bodyweight from sliding around, then they are good to go as far as I am concerned.

If you fancy purchasing a pair, they are £26 and can be found here. They come in black, pink, and baby blue and are lush to wear – so soft and squidgy! They also do a wider fitting one for people like me who have square feet! :-)

I will give you some bumpf off the website too – or else I won’t feel as if I have done a good job…

Pilates shoes – key features:
Designed in conjunction with professional Pilates instructors
Soft chrome free leather upper, slip resistant sole and padded insole
Lightweight and flexible, allowing a natural feel but with added resistance
Elasticated cross straps and heel ensure shoes stay on throughout your workout
Extremely lightweight

Not only do they make these lush Pilates shoes – but they also make gorgeous little leather shoes for babies. If you want to take a sneaky look at these, then have a look here!

So that’s it from me…I am off to stick my Pilates shoes on again and do a few stretches! ;-)

  

WeightLossBitch

On a health and fitness driven journey to lose over 32st / 448lbs / 203kgs – yes, it is a considerable amount – I am committed to losing my excess weight without the aid of weight loss surgery, diet pills, or quick fixes…as there aren’t any! Changing my eating habits and building up my fitness levels, along with addressing the ‘head issues’ will be crucial in order for me to achieve my goal. Living in England as a 31 year old super morbidly obese woman can be challenging to say the least. I have been shouted at in the street and verbally abused far too many times to mention; hence the name ‘Weight Loss Bitch’…the day I am just called a ‘bitch’ instead of a ‘fat bitch’ will be the day that I know I have cracked my weight loss! With many reasons to lose this weight I am documenting my journey for a number of reasons. Firstly, I would like to keep a record of the ups and downs, the highs and lows, and the challenges I face with such an enormous task to tackle. Secondly, I would also like to inspire and encourage other people who are in a similar situation and to show them that significant amounts of weight can be lost naturally…with a bit of motivation, hard work, dedication and will power. Thirdly, all of the blogging, Facebook-ing, Tweet-ing, Pinterest-ing and YouTube-ing keeps me occupied and keeps my fingers out of the fridge!
