Reebok Crossfit Nano 2.0 Sneaker from fitbloggin!

I got Reebok sneaker swag at fitbloggin from (…again!) this year!  (Last year my kid stole the shoes from me and I never got a shot to share them with you.  You don't want the review now.  She's um, made them special.)

This year – they are all. mine.  Muhahahaha.

Reebok Crossfit Nano
Behold the Reebok CrossFit Nano 2.0!

The new CrossFit Nano 2.0. has an upper designed for lateral support, and a low profile platform that balances cushioning and stability so you can stay quick, safe and comfortable through even the toughest WODs.

  • Breathable mesh upper for added ventilation
  • Low-cut for added mobility
  • DuraGrip print along the toe cap makes it durable for longer use
  • High abrasion rubber outsole for improved durability
  • Upper designed for lateral support and stability
  • Full length low profile with EVA midsole for cushioning and low-to-ground soccer feel
  • Forefoot flex grooves for added flexibility

I will wear them to the gym tonight and check-back with a review immediately!

Thank you Reebok and fitbloggin!

In order to keep her family on track, some Moms pass down advice through generations; others create their own pieces of wisdom. Sometimes the advice Mom gives can seem a little “out there”, influenced by her own unique traditions and values. But there’s no denying that Mom’s advice always comes from the heart. We celebrate Mom for all of her unique wisdom.


Moms have provided many pure words of wisdom. Listed below is some of our favorite advice.

  • “Be patient, breathe, and smile. Everything will always work out.” #momswisdom
  • “Don’t be a worrywart” #momswisdom
  • “Be independent and follow your dreams.” #momswisdom
  • “If someone is giving you a hard time, give them kindness in return.” #momswisdom
  • “It’s always better to walk away than to say words you can’t take back.” #momswisdom
  • “Don’t let small details upset you. Look at the big picture and what's really important.” #momswisdom
  • “Your individuality makes you unique and wonderful.” #momswisdom
  • “Mother knows best” #momswisdom
  • “Opportunity is always knocking, you just have to listen hard enough to hear it.” #momswisdom
  • “Trust your gut instincts.” #momswisdom
  • “Learn from your past but do not let it define you.” #momswisdom

    – In addition to drinking plain water every day, eating foods with high moisture content—such as fruits and vegetables—could be a good way to increase total water consumption. Water constitutes 90% of most fruits and vegetables and about 50% of meats.  Source: USDA Center for Nutrition Policy and Promotion


    – Drink water instead of sugary drinks when you’re thirsty. Regular soda, energy or sports drinks, and other sweet drinks usually contain added sugar. To manage your daily calorie intake, sip water or other drinks with few or no calories. Source: ChooseMyPlate.gov


    – Drink water with and between your meals. Adults and children take in about 400 calories per day as beverages—drinking water can help you manage your calorie intakes.  Source: ChooseMyPlate.gov

    – Water is a great choice when it comes to daily hydration. Have ready-to-go containers filled with water available in the refrigerator. Place them in lunch boxes or backpacks for easy access when kids are away from home.  Source: ChooseMyPlate.gov
