Your Body Is A Gift

Image
It was like I had a major light bulb moment. I mean for the last 6 years, weight loss has always been a goal along with getting more physically fit and stronger. And I've heard people say that you only have one body, and you need to take care of it blah blah blah...

But it's like I felt this on a personal level - like WAKE UP GIRL! You have ONE BODY. It's YOUR responsibility to take care of the GIFT that you have been given. I experienced this while I was in bed with pain in both of my feet. My right foot was throbbing from the arthritis, and my left foot was in as much pain from my plantar fasciitis. In that moment it didn't take a genius to figure out that my body is really dealing with a lot of inflammation. And that I had been eating more for fun than for healing and nutrition.

It was definitely another nudge for me to really work on focusing to eat with a purpose. Oh, another highly processed cookie, another scoop of ice cream, another handful of marshmallows re…

SureSport Graduated Calf Compression Sleeves Review


Full Disclosure: I received products free of charge for the purpose of providing a review. My opinions are completely my own based on my experience.

Well, if you've been reading my blog, or know me in person, then you know that I love compression. After my calf injury this last year, well I won't workout without them. Yes, I even wear compression sleeves to spin class, on the elliptical... even rowing. For me, they aren't just for running.

Yes, I am that girl that you see at the gym walking around with compression sleeves while doing bicep curls. Granted, I don't put them on just to do upper body work ;) But usually if I'm at the gym lifting weights, I am also doing some type of cardio while I'm there also.

I had honestly never heard of SureSport Graduated Calf Compression Sleeves, but I was more than happy to give them a try.

My first thought?

I loved the design. Since I wear compression sleeves so often, I like having ... well... cute ones :) So I was really pleased with the overall look of this.

And the fit?

They fit great! Some of my sleeves, I have to roll at the bottom because I am so short. As you can see, these fit great.

The feel of the compression? 

The squeeze was just the right amount of pressure. I have tried some sleeves that I felt the compression was just too much (especially for working out). I like to use compression for both exercise and recovery. And if the compression is too intense, I can't use them for my actual workouts. But the compression with the SureSport Calf Compression Sleeves were just what I needed. I could definitely feel the support, but it wasn't too much to cause pain or make anything uncomfortable. 

One thing to note is that the washing instructions are to lay flat to dry. I have a bad habit of tossing everything into the dryer. But I washed these according to the directions, and they retained their shape without stretching or shrinking. 

My overall thoughts? 

I have now added the SureSport Calf Compression Sleeves to my list of favorites! I feel the cost is reasonable, and that they are good quality. I would definitely recommend them to my friends.
