    I would recommend getting fitted for running shoes at a running store. I started CT5K with my regular cross-training shoes and I would get shin-splints and other minor pains in my feet and legs. I decided one day to stop at a local running store to get fitted for shoes and it was one of the best things I could have done. The sales associate who assisted me had me first put on a pair of basic/normal running shoes and had me jog on the treadmill. While I jogged she video recorded my feet to see my running style. She then had me try on three different pairs of shoes to find the pair that fit just right. I was worried that the shoes would be really expensive, but I ended up paying around $85 for them...(they were even discounted because they were "old colors" - how silly, but great for me!). Seriously, one of the best investments I made. On the first day jogging in my new running shoes I felt completely different/better...and now I hardly ever deal with feet/leg pain.

    Doesn't matter when you eat your calories bud as long as you don't go over. So if you know you get hungry(or the munchies) at night, reserve some of your calories. For me crunchy veggies help with the munchies cause I'm not hungry... just want to chew on something. Carrots or celery and salsa is GREAT! The crunch reminds you of chips but waaaay better for you and doesn't have a lot of flavor to overpower the salsa.

    Awww... I love A!

    Vibrams("Five Fingers") are minimulist shoes... meaning there isn't much between your feet and the ground. I have been running for over a year and a half and am finally considering making the switch over the summer. They recommend you start slow in minimulist shoes, so it's possible if you haven't been running in anything but those, they are the reason for your pain. When I make the switch I have to do it slow and change my running because I won't be used to changing my heel strike and such. There are some great articles on minimulist shoes and how to run in them and making the switch. I wouldn't get rid of your shoes... but maybe take A's advice and go to a shoe store for something to use more regularly for now. Hope this helps!

    Tilipia, Yeay!

    I had it last night too and I'll be having it tonight again for dinner. Glad you liked it a lot and broke down and cooked some. I bought filets from Costco, sundried tomato and then cooked them in the oven one night but last night I pan-fried them.

    Tonight I'm going to the Fish Market restaurant and having dijion-crusted tililpia.

    I normally use the recipe section here on Spark when I cook from scratch, I recommend that highly. I just typed in ground turkey and have been going crazy cooking with the recipes I found.

    Can't help you with the running.
    Glad the tornado, or did you say hurricane? whatever missed you & your house. That's scary! Good luck!

    I honestly don't know how anyone runs in those shoes - but I have heard people say that they love them. I go to this store in my area called "Run for your life" and they fitted me for some New Balance shoes and I have never had a shin splint, sore knees, or even swollen ankles! I think different shoes work best for different people though!
