If I could share one piece of advice I would say create groupings. Groupings allow you to:
--Enter food quickly into your menu for the day
--It then becomes a recipe for future meals
--Doing so just makes life easier

    That is a fabulous goal!!! No, it is not cheating to do C25K on a treadmill. I did :-)
    A track is a great alternative to the street if you have on available...just make sure you change directions so you're not always turning the same way. A heart rate monitor is what I use to track calories burned (and you can get one with a GPS to calculate your mileage).
