Last week I was dedicated to my mission. Time. For. A. Change.
I made a big swing in the right direction. My snacking habit improved for sure. I slept better and I didn't go in the red everyday with my calories :)

I did have a hard time falling asleep Sunday night, but I fell asleep, and I stayed asleep.
Monday ....I got up and decided to run, so I could start the week off on a high note. This selfie didn't really work out. It is dark out!
I went to the gym and did a leg work out. At the time I was questioning if I was pushing myself hard enough. Thursday, when I could still feel my quads going up and down the steps, I decided the work out was good enough.
I did take a break from my desk, and took a short walk and ran up and down the stairs a few extra times though.
My new running shoes arrived in the mail...hear my sighing, yet another pair that didn't fit quite right. The search for shoes has been extremely frustrating. I have spent hours trying stuff on and nothing has been great. I started trying men's and they seem to work with my orthotics better in 7.
I went out and picked up a pair of Nike's, then came home, and went for a run.
Apparently, a stiffer sole isn't going to work for me. It wasn't completely uncomfortable while I was running, but I felt clunky and my feet, both feet, felt fatigued. I gave up after a few miles, and actually returned the shoes the next day. The search for shoes continue.
I woke up and felt like I had gone back in time three months, my feet were sensitive and swollen. I was frustrated, but when I got in the shower I was completely freaked out. My right foot now looks like my left. My second toe is drifting, so the Capsulitis is progressing. You would think all the time I spent off my feet was enough to let the inflammation calm down, but no.
My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 was awesome. My kind of movie, nothing blowing up, no stress, just laughter :)
A good distraction from my sore feet.
My feet are feeling better, but I am afraid to try to run again, so I will be back on the bike next week.
I finally found a pair of Dansko shoes that fit. After three months, I am going to graduate out of sneakers at work...finally.
I have no idea when I will make it back to running. It is quite bothersome, but I still managed to keep my diet going in a good direction, I am still sleeping okay, and I have new shoes, so I am marching on...
Linking up with my gals, Holly @ hohoruns and Tricia@ MissSippiPiddlin for the weekly wrap up.
