Step Forward and Try Something New

This is a Sponsored Post for Famous Footwear and The Shelf.  However, all opinions are my own.

The seasons have changed, the Holidays are coming, and I sense a shift with everything around me.  I love this time of year.  It’s the beginning of a new school year for my kids, and I usually do a lot of self-reflecting after a hectic summer.  It’s time to change up my routine!

During the summer, we go on a lot of road trips.  The kids love the theme parks like Legoland and I get my exercise running around with them.

But the best thing about staying at the hotel is that I also get to lounge around a little while they play!  It’s a win win situation!

Because it so busy during the summer, I hit a wall with my exercise routine and I’m yearning for something new.  Basically, I haven’t hit the gym in about six weeks.  But I know I need something.  When I find something I like, I get pumped too.

I’ve been curious about spinning but fear has held me back.  The longer I go without hitting the gym, the more I sink into old patterns, like not eating healthy.  Thanks to Hurricane Irma, I became a pro at that!

So, I have decided to step forward.  I’m stepping forward with a new hobby and a new attitude.  Tomorrow I’m going to my first spinning class and I’m excited!  I’m stepping out of my comfort zone and trying something new.

Ideally, I’d like to lounge around while both kids are in school but that is not going to happen.  Motherhood is a full-time job and at forty-six-years old with two boys under six-years-old, I need to be healthy and active to take care of myself and family.

I step forward and find my confidence when I decide to get back on track with my health.  No matter what, I can find the time to exercise and get back into shape, even when I feel like I’ve hit a wall.  So, it’s time to put on my new Nike’s and get cracking!

Thanks to Famous Footwear who is empowering women everywhere to #stepforward confidently, I’m running straight to spinning class tomorrow and I couldn’t be more excited! Famous Footwear has everything from Sketchers to Converse to stay fashion forward while switching it up! With over 1,000 stores nationwide and even more selection online at, Famous Footwear is a leading family footwear destination for the famous brands you know and love.

I’m excited to get back on track with my fitness and keep putting miles on my Nikes.  I’m stepping out of the box and #steppingforward trying something new. Is there something you’ve been meaning to try but have held back?
