Stay away from sodas, candy, white flour and junk food.
Eat REAL food like vegetables, fruits, homemade chicken, and almonds.

Look up Runner's World.com for great information about your training.

I suggest you walk daily and every other block or so on your walk, jog for a block and then walk the next two blocks. This combination of walking & jogging will be great for your heart. Be sure to slow down if you feel really tired and just walk.
