Getting in shape with Dr. Scholl's Active Series!

I've been quite unhappy with my body for several years now. I'm not overweight, but I just am not satisfied. I have even been asked when I'm "due" twice and I wasn't pregnant either time. Sure, friends and family always tell me I'm not fat, I look fine and etc. but that's not how I feel. My clothes keep getting tighter and my self esteem keeps getting lower.

The problems are:
1. I hate exercising.
2. I have no motivation.
3. I don't want to change my eating habits.

Too bad for me, right? I don't think I've mentioned this before, but Tim is really into MMA and he has had several fights. He actually has another one at the beginning of December, so he is really trying to eat right and workout/train right now. We have a room in our basement that we call the "workout" room. It doesn't get used as much as it should though. We bought a treadmill a year ago and have lots of weights down there too.  We just recently bought a tv/dvd combo for down there too and also a couple of Jillian Michael's dvds. I bought the Kickboxing one and also the 30 day shred. Tim made me workout last night. :( I about died.

Very very dangerous!!  I was only able to do half of the workout last night. I felt so stupid but oh well, I have to start somewhere!

It's a good thing that I was recently lucky enough to be able to participate in Influenster's Dr. Scholl's Active Series VoxBox!!  Influenster sent me a pair of Dr. Scholl's Active Series Replacement Insoles to try out!

There they are in my shoes! And let me tell you, while the rest of my body is hurting because of Jillian, my feet are NOT!!

  • Reduces shock by 40%
  • Designed with Triple Zone Protection for your ball of foot, arch, and heel
  • Helps relieve and prevent pain from shin splints, runner's knee and plantar fasciitis
  • Helps reduce foot odor with SweatMax™ technology
You get the inserts and then it instructs you on how to cut them down to your shoe size. It was very easy and they work very well. I'm excited to have these to use now that I really honestly plan on getting in shape. I just got my shoes in August and never really thought I would need inserts but they help a lot!!  I really recommend going out and getting some for your shoes too!


"I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes."


  1. Inserts definitely help to save you from aches and pains ;) No one can influence you to workout and eat healthy. You will have to find the desire within yourself!!

  2. Those inserts look awesome!! I so have the same issues with no desire to workout or change eating habits but wanting to get in shape. It's tough. hahahaha

  3. That picture is hilarious, and so true! And those inserts look awesome :-) I hear you though, I have no desire to work out either, and it only gets worse for me in the winter!

  4. i love jillian dvds, well love/hate. she is pretty annoying :) once you do it a few times you'll want to mute it!
