GoldToe Support Socks For Work-It Wednesday!! #WorkItWednesday

Compression socks may not be the first thing you think of for a workout. And for a lot of workouts you'd be right. However, I have an ankle that tends to give out during high-impact activities such as running, jumping rope, etc. I've sprained it twice, and now I have to be careful with it. One thing I've found that helps is compression socks or sleeves. I have tried a lot of different brands in the past, but recently I received a couple pairs of the Women's Support Knee-High Socks for review from GoldToe, and they are now my favorite!



The first thing I noticed as I put my GoldToe Support Socks on is that they are a much higher compression than any other brand I've tried. This is a very firm compression, which makes it perfect for wearing during running, racquetball, or any other high-impact sport. There are toe and heel "pockets" to allow normal fit in these areas (unlike some other compression-type socks that just cram your toes together!) but the rest of the sock is contoured to fit just right with the perfect amount of support and pressure-relief.



Another reason I like these GoldToe Support Socks so well is they're a much thinner material than my others. This makes them cooler and thus much more comfortable, especially when you're sweating during a workout!! The socks also stay up very well, even during a 2-mile run. No having to stop and adjust the socks or keep pulling them up.



I would like to point out that even if you don't need compression or support socks for your workouts, these are great for other reasons. They promote healthy circulation in the legs and feet, which makes them perfect for people who are on their feet for extended periods of time, have swelling, leg pain, or varicose veins, or even for someone with diabetes. Whatever your purpose for needing support socks, I haven't found a better pair than these from GoldToe!

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
