This year is going to be one of great change for the whole family and I can't wait to see every new moment that comes along. It all just makes me nervous about how I'm going to handle everything with all these new challenges. So when I saw today's Momentum Monday quote, I knew I had to use it.
I'm going to make mistakes, I'm going to do things that are different than what you would do, I will be finding my way through the maze that is parenthood and doing the best I can. It's a good reminder for myself and those around me that I will strive to do what is best for my family and your encouragement is appreciated, but leave the snarky criticism at the door, because nobody got time for that here.
::getting off my soapbox::
Now onto the recap of my 10 Days of Compression from this weekend! It starts off with Friday, I was going to put up a blog post but work got crazy and I just couldn't make it work. So Friday was Day 6 of Compression and it featured Marathon Purple!
Saturday was Day 7 of Compression. I had to go out and brave the crowds to finish up some last minute shopping, so I knew I would need some good compression since I would be on my feet all day long! Day 7's featured sock was Marathon White! It had snowed in our area the day before and it had all melted away already, so I was missing it. I thought it would be fun to wear the white's as a way to dream of a "white Christmas".
Sunday was Day 8 of Compression and featured the Marathon Baby Blue Argyle socks! I am such a sucker for argyle! I got this pair at the same time I got the Pink Argyle socks and these have been in my compression arsenal for about a year now. They look great and have a really tight compression! For some reason, my argyle socks tend to have more compression than the other styles, could be a fluke, not sure, but I do know that if I need a tighter compression sock that day, I go for my argyles!
This also makes me think of the Muhammad Ali quote, "Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee." These are the colors of the monarch butterfly and commonly of bees, so it totally fits the bill. It encourages me to attack my goals, gives encouragement during my run and helps me to fight a bit harder for what I'm after. Who knew colors could be motivating?
There is only one more day left of my 10 Days of Compression, sharing my fave socks and giving this pregnant lady some much needed compression and leg/foot love. Hope you all are ready for the holiday coming up in two days, TWO DAYS!!! Can you believe it? So crazy.
Now it's your turn: Do you use compression socks? What is your favorite brand? Are you ready for Christmas?
