A Perfect Secret Santa Gift

I was only moderately surprised to receive a pair of light up shoes as part of the Secret Santa program at my job. In the last six months I’ve made a big deal out of exercising and losing weight. Everyone in the office has noticed my boxes of low carbohydrate crackers, my mugs of water, and my bottles of supplements. They’ve also commented on how much weight I’ve lost and seem to be proud of my accomplishments. I had to lose weight because my doctor diagnosed me as pre-diabetic and said if I didn’t drop the pounds I could be in trouble in as little as a year.

That’s why I’m a water junkie and started cutting out the carbs. I also started walking, at first around the block and then longer distances as I increased my stamina. I’ve gone through two pairs of walking shoes already and needed a new pair as the holidays rolled around. Someone at work hinted I should hold off on the purchase due to Santa making a special stop at the office. I figured someone was buying me some shoes, but I was pleasantly surprised when the Christmas office party rolled around and I actually opened the box!

They bought me these really cool shoes that light up when you wear them! They have a row of lights on them that goes around the whole shoe and they’re really bright. They’re comfortable too as someone figured out my size. It’s funny they picked these because I always made sure to do my walking before the sun set because you just never know if someone in a car might not see you and run you down. I can’t wait to take these shoes out for a spin! My husband says he can now see me coming and going!
