New Shoes!

Today I woke up excited! I knew that I was going to go check some running shoes out.  I had tried some on the other day, but wanted to check them out online to see if I was getting a good deal or not.  After some research I decided I was.  I got up and had some toast with jelly, coffee, and banana and pear.  I ate it while watching, you guessed it, I Love Lucy!  After that, I got dressed and headed out.  It takes about half an hour to get down to the outlet mall where I was going.

I decided to try on a bunch of different ones again to make sure of which one I wanted.  Last time, I didn't really spend time trying on other shoes.  The ones I ended up with are just a bit too big and it causes a lot of problems.  My toes and arch are sore from my foot sliding around in the shoe while running.  I did not want to have to deal with that again so I made sure to take my time.

 I finally decided on some Nike Zoom Vomero's.  I remember looking at these years ago when I was still wearing the Nike Pagasus.  They just weren't around for me to try on at the time.  They have a wider fit and don't sit too high on my heel, which I seem to have a problem with a lot of shoes doing.  They are also not too cushioned.  For some reason that bothers my feet. Another great thing about these shoes?  They were an extra 30% off!  I got a $130 pair of shoes for $50!  It was a great day.  So to celebrate, I stopped at McDonald's and picked up some crack...I mean Coke.  Diet Coke.  There is something about their Diet Coke that I really love.  I have not had it in months!
It was almost noon when I got home.  I wanted to take my new kicks out for a test drive before work, so I quickly changed and took off.  It was a really beautiful day out, even though it looked a bit overcast and dark in some areas.  I just love these fall days and am glad I run outside so that I can enjoy them!  They sure don't last that long!  So, I ended up taking a 2 and a half mile run just to get the feel of the shoe and to make sure they weren't going to cause problems.  They felt good.  I don't remember the last time I had to actually break shoes in.  After that I had a rather large lunch.  I had 2 cheese sandwiches ( I would have been satisfied with 1), apple with peanut butter, a clementine, and some apple juice.  It came in just under 1000 calories when I logged it.  I was SO surprised.  That is a very large lunch.

 For dinner I had the very same thing I had yesterday.  I had the Smart One with 2 Boca patties and a Chobani.  When I got home there were Swiss Rolls on the kitchen counter.  I really, really wanted one.  I use to love eating those when I was younger.  I would put them in the freezer and eat them frozen.  Yum!  But, I can't make any excuses for them now. I don't need them, they really aren't that good, and if I have one I will automatically want more.  It's just how I am.  So, it's better to just ignore them until they are gone. 
Tomorrow is Friday!
Any plans for the weekend?
