What I’m Loving Wednesday #6: Tuft & Needle Pillow and OOFOS

Tuft & Needle Pillow

So you have read that I LOVED my Tuft & Needle mattress and still do!!! Well they were so kind to send me TWO of their pillows. Let me start by saying a week or two prior we had gotten these amazing memory foam pillows deep discount that I thought I would never love another pillow again. 

And I didn’t…for awhile. We received these pillows and I held it and thought it was TOO soft. Most people don’t know this about me, but I normally don’t even use pillows. I LOVE to scrunch up a blanket that I’m cuddling and use it as my pillow. Or be straight laying on the mattress. So I had my memory foam deep discount pillow and this one. Throughout the month I have been using my Tuft & Needle Pillow exclusively. I gave my other pillow a shot the other night and in the middle of the night I switched back. I truly think this pillow is great and I’m honest with you that I didn’t think I would like it and didn’t like it to begin with. Zimmerman holds his or scrunches it up to prop himself up, but likes the other pillow better. Just like mattresses, pillows are very individualized on who likes what. But I will definitely recommend this ESPECIALLY because you can mold it to however you want or scrunch it up and that’s awesome to be flexible like that. I will say that had I not been sent these, I would not have purchased them myself because #ballinonabudget. I cannot afford that.

But if you want to check it out you can over on Amazon! *affiliate code

Here’s their mattress as well

They also sell sheets and OMG I don’t even know how those would feel! 

OOFOS Recovery Shoes

Here’s another one I’m being completely honest about. If you follow me on twitter you will find that I get obnoxious on certain days when I’m twitter chatting it up, normally on #runchat. I finally joined #bibchat and had no idea who the sponsor even was, I just conveniently was able to join that night and had great conversation and enjoyed the questions. Normally the questions in some of those chats are boring or some I don’t even want to answer. But this night we were rolling, GIFS and all. I felt like I found my PEOPLE! Well, I happened to be a winner of a pair of OOFOS recovery shoes of my choice. I’ve recently seen these around the social media realm, because let’s face it, my running coolness isn’t as hip as it used to be with the trends. These are the ones I chose because I really enjoyed the look and thought they would go great with anything and any weather. Unlike the flip flips (which I could’ve used now that my other flip flops need to be retired.)

Women's OOmg Low Shoe - White & Black

You can see me rocking them here from my instagram post!

I can’t say enough great things about these shoes. The arch support is great and they are so comfortable. I’ve started to even use them for my grocery shopping adventures because they are great to slip on and off between batches. 

On their website here are a few key things from their page “WHY OOFOS”:

ABSORBS MORE SHOCK THAN TRADITIONAL FOAMS

REDUCES STRESS ON SORE FEET, KNEES AND BACK

CRADLES YOUR ARCHES

ENABLES MORE NATURAL MOTION


Q: Have you tried either of these products?

Q: What about the sheets from Tuft & Needle?!

 

Motivational Monday #29

Workouts

On Monday I ran 3.7 miles. I had plans to run throughout the week, but I just didn’t feel like it and that was okay. I ran on Saturday, but only 1.2 miles as I wanted to make a smoothie and needed some orange juice. So I ran a mile then ran to Walgreen’s and walked home. I also did a Nike Training Club workout and am going to start incorporating those into my weeks. 

I was trying to find a race to increase my motivation to get out of the door and put solid training in, but just couldn’t find one that was worth the money. Now that I have limited funds, I have to be choosy. I was looking at the Hot Chocolate race series because they normally have great swag, however I wasn’t a fan of the pullover. If it looked like the Magnificent Mile jacket then I would’ve signed up ASAP.
