Shopping, Eating and exercise oh my

Today afterwork, we decided to go to Meijers because I had heard that they had a sale on the south beach wraps (which are like lunchables) that I really like. They were 2 for 5 and if you buy 6 you got 5.00 off a clothing purchase. So I got six wraps and I got a running shirt for only 3.99 as a result. After shopping we decided to go to Fridays, I had the santa fe chicken salad, one of their lower-fat options. It was 500 calories and less then 10grams of fat. It was pretty good, next time I would order it with the dressing on the side as it was really hot. My mouth was burning. I ate 3/4's of it. I also am not a fan of iceburg lettuce, it tends to upset my tummy. So we shall see. My husband ordered one of the 3 course combo, so I had a bit of the chips and queso, mostly chips, a little queso. He got key west shrimp as his meal and said it was very good. I don't like fish.

For dessert, he got the cinnabon cheesecake which we both had 2 spoonfuls of. It was just like a cinnabon.

After we got home , the hubby felt guilty because he hadn't worked out and said he was going to do the Biggest loser high cardio.

I must be a glutten for punishment , since I decided to join him, despite know I shouldnt do more cardio after running this morning,
but I did anyway.

IT was a good work out and I don't feel too bad. I am pretty sure I will never workout after eatting again. Also, I had a calf cramp in the middle of the football drills but otherwise it was good.

Cold Morning

This morning I woke up to and it was 12 degrees with a windchill of 2. Today was my scheduled day to run and I was determined I was not going to let the cold stop me. I decided that if I wore the same outfit as last time but added a scarf that I would be ok. I headed outside at about 7:00 am, the sun had yet to come out. The streets were empty, but I could see clearly from the street lights. There was very little wind and it didn't seem much colder then Tuesday morning so I thought it would be ok. I took the same path I did last time, since I knew it well. The running portions went fine, I found it harder to breath through the scarf so I pulled it down a little on the run portion. Once I was warmed up from the activity I didn't really feel the cold at all which is good. The sun also came out, which I am sure warmed the temperature at least a few degrees. I am beginning to enjoy running more and actually look forward to the run segment, that isn't to say I'm not ready for the walk portion when it comes time. I finished my route and headed at about 7;28 and got ready for work and left the house in time to catch the bus. Of course I forgot my IPOD which made the walk to work from the bus stop a lot less enjoyable.

I wore the inexpensive shoes I already had for the run and they feel comfortable...so I am wondering if I need new shoes now at all ...or if I should wait until I am running longer distances.

Shoe Decision

I have yet to decide if I am keeping my shoes from zappos. I wore them last night in doors for cardio and thought maybe they might rub wrong on my foot. I am beginning to think that I might return these and hold off buying new shoes until I know exactly what I want. I don't know though.
