Running shoes

After years of no sport (except the occasional very slow swim) I have done day one of the couch 2 5k programme. And discovered that my trainers are really uncomfortable. So what should I look for in a new running shoe? Can I buy them online or will I have to go into a shop?

Also I don't know what to do with my phone while I run ( /mostly walk) - should I get trousers with pockets? Or one of those things to attach it to my arm? Or just keep holding in my hand? Maybe something else?

Final question: to those who record what they eat (with something like myfitnesspal or whatever), how do you put in food other people have cooked? Or when you eat out? Buffets? Brought to you by me failing to continue for more than two weeks....

So my husband and I are house hunting for a 3-bedroom house. (I have a 2 year old son and a ten week old daughter). We have a really tight budget for how much we can spend. A ton of great houses in our price range have 3 bedrooms, but only one bathroom. :P

My husband doesn't think its a big deal, but with two young kids I can't imagine only having one bathroom. And as they get older I imagine that my daughter might want more privacy from her brother and vice versa. I also have nightmare of both kids having the flu and only one place to puke, lol.

Am I being silly about this? Does anyone here have two kids and only one bathroom? Would one bathroom be a deal breaker for you?

(P.S. We don't have a lot of money or experience to do any renovations or somehow add a bathroom, btw, as I know some have done that.)

god bless the world

How often do you exercise?

What kinds of exercise do you enjoy?

What's the most amount of weight you've lost in your life (because you were trying, not due to illness or something unrelated to diet/exercise)?

Do you place more emphasis on healthy eating, or working out?

What do you consider healthy eating?

Supposing you won a minor amount in a lottery, like $100,000. How much would you keep, and how much would you give away? To whom would you give away some, and how much?

I understand. White socks + sandals = horrorshow.

So what color socks can I wear with my sandals?

I mean, should I match them to my shorts?

What if I'm wearing white shorts?

Or does this meant that if I want to wear socks, I'm not allowed to wear sandals with them at all?
