find.your.motivation

My name is Brittany and this is my weight loss, motivational and inspirational blog. I started this blog not only to help motivate myself to lose weight but others as well. I have tried the unhealthy ways of losing weight and found that it was wrong and that I am strong enough to push through and do it a healthy and safe way. I hope that this blog can educate and motivate others to join me to a healthier lifestyle.

Healthy Eating
Here are some reasons why you should Run Barefoot:
Barefoot running or running in minimal shoes encourages a more natural foot strike pattern that does not involve landing on the heel. Barefoot or minimalist shoe running can be healthier for you than wearing running shoes. Overall health benefits include strengthening of the foot and softer landings with less impacts. If you are not comfortable with running barefoot or you live in a big city, minimalist shoes may be the perfect compromise-not only will you be more agile when running in minimalist shoes, you’ll burn more calories. Without the support of traditional running shoes, tiny muscles in your feet will be called into action.
Whether you’re going barefoot or almost barefoot, here’s what you need to know before you give the trend a try:
1. Know it’s safe for you. If you have any sensory loss in your feet, you should not attempt barefoot running — it’s too dangerous. In fact, if you have any foot-related injuries, it’s best to consult a medical professional before you try the trend.
2. Take it slow. You must progress slowly to allow your musculoskeletal system to adapt to the new running pattern.
3. Want to go barefoot? Start with walking before you run. It is best to learn the right way to run without the interference of shoes,adding that walking barefoot is “the best way to try it out”. Once you’re up to walking briskly for 30 minutes, slowly begin to replace the walking with running. Then…
4. Consider minimalist shoes, either some or all of the time, depending on your comfort level. No matter what You should protect your feet when necessary, such as in the cold, heat, dark or on surfaces that may have hidden sharp objects.
5. Seek out smooth, hard surfaces. It might seem counterintuitive, a smooth, hard surface is best for learning to run with bare feet or while wearing minimalist shoes.
