The good with the bad

I'm feeling guilty about eating too much today
I didn't really plan well today, but I also need to go to the grocery store with my few remaining dollars...not a great combination. I can't drive right now, either, so I have to pay $2 round-trip on the bus or catch a ride with my family at their convenience. Those are just excuses, though. I could at least stay within my calorie range, right? I've also been pretty sedentary today apart from my workout, so I guess I'll see how all that comes out during my next few morning weigh-ins
To be on the positive side, I signed up for the Trick or Trot 5K! I'm excited about that and determined to actually finish my training program and the race. This is the third 5K race I've signed up for, but I have yet to actually complete the race. I keep having this problem with blisters
I'm not going to let that stop me this time! Plus, I have a few weeks to either get better shoes or replenish my blister arsenal. I'm talking, Band-Aid Advanced Healing Blister bandages, moleskin, and blister defense stick. Also, more blister protection socks would really help. Yes, believe it or not, this has been proved by trial and pain to be what I need to walk any longer than 30 minutes without getting blood on my socks and shoes from broken blisters rubbed raw. Ouch! I've gotten different pairs of shoes but to no avail. If I do get those, I'm going to the sporting goods store and getting someone very knowledgeable to help! I digress: let's get back to the good of today. I did do my workout, a thirty-two minute walk after it was a little too hot, but I wasn't overheated. I also tried a new Spark People video, the 10 minute stretches for runners. I figured they were good for a walker, too. I would like to start running for zombie survival training, but I don't think my knees can take it yet. Plus, the blister thing...Last good thing is I met several of my Team goals today and have tracked everything I ate. I must try harder! Imagine what would happen then
Goodnight all and join me in the 5K Trick or Trot!
