Oh Those High Heels

So I’m taking creative liberty here to deviate from my usual health and fitness itinerary to write about something else that I love probably just as much…

Fun and unique fashion, cool, trendy clothes,  and amazing high heels.

Oh those high heels.

My mother schooled me early in life that if I was going to wear them I’d learn to walk in them properly and not “like I just fell off a tractor” ( my mother had rather interesting, colorful ways of illustrating things for me 😛

Spending some time in modeling school pretty well sealed the deal on nailing “the walk”

I’m always amused when I come into a room and the first thing I can spot is someone looking at my feet…assessing how tall I am and if I have any assistance with it.

If I happen to be around a really tall man, there is a straightening of their posture as if trying to assess my height ( which is amusing 😉

I especially love little kids. They can be so delightfully obvious…for instance… this one little girl… she started at my feet and slowly looked all the way up to my eyes when she declared… “You’re so tall!”

And probably to a 6 year old… I most definitely was…

Why yes, I’m a tall girl. And yes, I can rock the heck outta high heels because well, I can and why not ?

I guess I’ve always been comfy in them and as far back as I can remember they’ve been a part of my wardrobe.

Oh, I did try a brief stint of wearing flats. I did.

I just can’t think if I’m wearing a pair of them… like my brain isn’t fully engaged or something… 😉

But… slipping into high heels… well that boys and girls… is a game changer.

There is something rather empowering about them, a “I can take charge of the world feeling”, and well hey, topping in at 6’4 , I have no problem seeing over people, getting what I want off a shelf, or helping random petite people who ask me to drag things off an upper shelf for them 😉

Oh yes, I’ve gotten the “don’t you think you’re tall enough?” comment said with a laugh

Tall enough for who? and really, who determined somewhere in that random book of societal rules ( that I threw out a long time ago) that if you’re tall you can’t wear heels ?

Nonsense 😉

I don’t save them for special occasions either.. if I want to wear them.. I do.

It’s actually my perspective on pretty much anything fashion oriented. I don’t save stuff for special occasions.

Today… this day we’re given… IS a special occasion.

Of course, I had to share with you in this post some of my most favorite high heels. Here’s a sample of some ….  🙂

Last but not least…. crazy high black heels. I will confess to having many black ones in my shoe wardrobe 😉

 

 

ok tell me… do you love heels? or do you prefer flats or other shoes? Sorry guys, I know this might limit convo for you 😉

8 years ago I began what I now refer to as my "journey into lifestyle fitness". After a yearly check in with my Dr he said I looked "really good on paper, but I might consider losing a few pounds" I wasn't offended... I knew I needed to but it seemed like to much work at the time. In that year we had adopted 2 girls out of foster care, plus caring for my 3 sons & husband sort of left me on the back burner taking care of "me". I told him I "used to" walk & he encouraged me to at least get back to that. I left his office that day, started, & never quit. As time moved on my walks increased in length & speed. I started mingling some jogging into it...then after more time some short sprints. One day I realized I was doing more running than anything else. I learned to run longer and farther. I constantly challenged myself to do more. I realized I had turned into a runner & was loving it. I have since run 6 half marathons, 2 full marathons, and my first 50K scheduled for March 1,2015. Not bad for a girl who just started off walking not quite 2 miles! My body was now beginning to show the results of my work as weight & inches dropped off. I began to add in boxing & weights on days I wasn't running. Over time as the fat left, my new muscles were waiting underneath =) Obviously, I also made some food changes. Nothing drastic..just started eating less and trying to eat better.. I hated diets and how they made me feel....deprived & left out of all the fun...so adjusting & eating less of what I liked and moving more.. I found myself getting in decent physical shape. It began my thinking of lifestyle and not "dieting". As I got stronger,healthier & more fit it was an easier process to "let go" of some of the foods I had enjoyed. I had more energy, strength and confidence in what I could do. It was empowering. It made me realize that I probably wasn't the only one who wanted to lose weight, be healthy & strong but not always be on some sort of "diet". Maybe my journey & what I had learned & been doing might possibly help others to success in their lives... I consider myself to be rather normal and ordinary ( meaning I haven't always been into fitness and healthy eating) it has been a steady, daily, learned process with good days and bad days and my hope is that you too, will see the greatness in you, and that you have the ability and power to change and do anything you put your mind to. If you want change, you can make it happen. It's just one day at a time, making smart moves and better choices, and before you know it, things are happening. Get started on your journey, really, what do you have to lose ? And yet, so much to gain =)
