OH! Forgot to add: my doctor left me a vm saying my bloodwork was good, so I just gotta call him tomorrow to get the details. Very relieved! I also bought a pair of size 12 jeans today. They're stretchy, but the waist is still small. Was excited! The exercise is def making a difference.

Thanks! It's gonna be awhile before I can wear size 12s as my regular size, but it's always nice to fit in a smaller size.

I think I need to start doing strength training for my legs to help with not getting injuries while running....I am just intimidated by the weights at the gym though bc I'm worried it's gonna take me forever to figure out the settings/how to use them!

Today hasn't been a good day...TOM is still here, so hormones are still in play. I had to tell someone at work that he & I have to sit down Monday and go over some things b/c I've been receiving complaints about his performance. It made me feel like a bad person to have to tell him that...I've never had to do this before, so anyways...

I have eaten off plan today & I have a bad headache. I'm feeling yucky today.

Thank you, girl...yea, it's a crappy feeling. I know it comes with a position of authority, but it's still hard.

Ate off plan again today...I gotta get my head back in this!

Jayce;
someone at the gym should show you how to use the machines, almost all gyms will do that at a minimum. Depending on the machine they sometimes have pics of how to do the exercises, or if you can, get a trainer session for like a few times, and have them show you, see strength training/heavy lifting is my fav, I would do that before all other activities!

I got a few free trainer sessions when I joined this new gym; however, she went really quickly through the machines & I didn't feel like I learned anything. I kinda wonder if she does that on purpose so that people feel like they have to get a trainer in order to know what they're doing. I'm thinking of asking someone at the front desk if I can get someone to help me or either go in the "Women's Only" area & try to figure out the machines on my own time. At least I know the big men can't come in there. LOL!

Yes, I am def in a funk...Winter is always hard for me b/c I absolutely HATE that it gets dark so early. I feel like I can barely stay awake. I'm going to force myself to take Vitamin D3 & B12 every day...hopefully that will help. I'm going to the gym in the a.m. to start Week 2 of C25K...my calves/shins feel better, so I'm going to take it slower this week & not try to run so fast. I don't want to mess myself up in completing the program!

Amber, my family is going through a hard time...my dad has basically turned into a completely different person & I decided I can't deal with him right now. He's ripping the family apart, and it totally sucks.

Oh hun, I am sorry to hear about the family issues, that is tough and it seems when they flare over the holidays it is even tougher, I hope things work out, if it is not good for you, push him aside for now and focus on you!

Yes I know what you mean about the seasons, I leave at 3:30 and it is getting dark I hate it, I seriously have that seasonal mood disorder I think.

If she rushed you through the machines you should make them show you again, my gym had little cards that you could write the seat #, the adjustments, the weight, etc, and then I used to pull that out so I knew how to set things at first, maybe take a piece of paper and write it all down.

Another thing is you can write down the brand of equipment and the various machines then google them, there are tons of videos to show proper form, that is key!!You can do so much harm not using good form!

Yes just take C25k nice and slow and practice your stride to learn what doesn't stiffen you up, stretch like crazy afterwards, that should help. I will say I am loving yoga, wow the stretches are awesome, and after lifting heavy all week it feels so good to stretch. If you see someone running on the treadmill, maybe ask them for some stance advice, most people feel flattered.

Keep your chin up hun, you got a lot going on, but you are doing great, and you can keep doing great, taking care of you is the priority!

Hang in there honey! I can sure relate to family issues. It's a year this month that I have had no contact with my family. Traditionally we have always gone to CA to be with my family for the week of New years..its all my kids know and my oldest is 19. It's a hard time of year anyways, but then I got 'extra b.s.' going on yanno... but I am determined to not let it get to me. I've had a few days of feeling sorry for myself and now I'm kinda over myself. Chin up girl, you have done ALOT for yourself already you cannot let that all go to waste! Love ya chicky!

Thanks, Amber...yea, the holidays will be kinda rough, but somehow we'll make it. I just came back from the gym. Ran a bit to help alleviate stress! My calves still hurt, but I'm gonna keep trying.

Thanks for your comment on my pic. I hope to find a "boo" soon...lol!
