My Experience:

Measuring food was a foreign concept to me not long ago, but I gained an interest in it after learning more about how consuming certain macronutrient ratios may be able to maximize health and performance during workouts.

I came across this opportunity to try out an Eat Smart Scale and it couldn’t have come at a more perfect time. I’m new to using scales (thus, I don’t have much to compare it to), but I wouldn’t see a need to ever get a different scale. This one seems to do an excellent job and is easy to store (we keep it on top of our microwave).

I like that could can measure in various ways like grams, ounces or pounds. My routine has been to the scale on with the bowl I’m using already on it, that way the scale is at zero with an empty bowl on top (it doesn’t weight the bowl this way).

I’m excited to have this fancy tool in our kitchen and have found it useful espescially for measuring out fat servings (like nuts) as well as measuring ground coffee for consistent brewing. If you do any kind of measuring in your kitchen on a regular basis, this is definitely worth having.

Mizuno Wave Sky Review

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Fitfluential.

Mizuno Wave Sky

Overall Rating: 5-stars

About:

Maximum cushioning meets maximum comfort in the new Wave Sky, built for neutral runners. A full length U4icX midsole works in harmony with new cloudwave technology for a plush and lively ride.

  • All new Mizuno SmoothRide: New maximum cloudwave technology coupled with full length, articulated U4icX midsole delivers a plush, flexible ride
  • New thicker and premium anatomical sockliner for improved fit and comfort
  • U4icX strobel lining for added comfort
  • Mizuno DynamotionFit: 3 panel upper construction with skin-like seamless midfoot and minimal forefoot for a disappearing fit

My Experience:

Mizuno made my go-to pair of volleyball shoes back when I was competing. Because those were my staple, I was eager + quick to accept the chance to try their running shoes. This pair of Wave Sky’s is pair #2 of running shoes I’ve tried by Mizuno; you can read that first review here on the Wave Catalyst.

What I love most about the Mizuno Wave Sky is that from the second I slipped my first foot into the shoe, it felt comfortable. I didn’t have to wiggle my foot around a bunch to get comfy and I didn’t feel like I needed to break them in. That’s HUGE to be able to take them for a spin right out of the box. For me, that’s rare.

I’ve done a few sprint workouts and a longer (3 mile) run and these shoes suited both distances great. I’m sure at a higher mileage, they’d be perfect.

With the Crossfit I’ve been doing, I don’t run more than a few miles at a time. I actually feel like a much better runner when I’m focusing on shorter distances at a faster pace while being super mindful of form. I’ll be keeping these in my gym bag especially for days when the WOD calls for running.

They provide enough of a cushion that they will sufficiently absorb the shock of several mines, yet low-profile enough to feel sleek and smooth; not clunky. That combination of not clunky + adequately cushioned seems like a hard one to come by. Mizuno knows what they’re doing in constructing this shoe.
