Dumb question? Can you teach yourself to run, or at least jog? I've tried jogging on the treadmill and outside and let me tell you it wasn't pretty. I feel like I'm flopping all over the place, and when my feet hit the ground, it's like a great big jar runs through my body. No way is that relaxing to me! Am I not doing something right? Any ideas?? I read on here how so many of you enjoy running or jogging but I can't seem to get the hang of it!!
I bought a new scale today, a digital one..WooHoo..so no more weighing-in on the freight scale at work. I did get a lower number though, which I liked, but I know it was because I wasn't wearing steel-toes work boots and a heavy sweatshirt over a t-shirt and heavy duty blue jeans, but I think I will be better able to track my true weight now.
Have a great night all and please give me ideas on the running thing!

This has been a crazy week! Sunday night when I was getting ready for work I felt so tired, but then it had been a long night the night before and I didn't get my normal Sunday nap so I didn't think to much of it. As the night went on I just never "woke" up. Skipped going to the gym Monday morning and went straight home and to bed. When I got up Monday it felt like someone had pounded on my back and was now squeezing the heck out of my back and chest. It hurt to even take a breath. Ended up going to the doctor and was put on steroids because of some viral thing that caused swelling in the airway and lungs. No exercising at all, barely felt like getting out of bed until Thursday, and the doctor said the steroids would cause a weight gain, oh lucky me...LOL!! Finally made it to the gym on Friday but I think the damage was done for this week, didn't eat healthy at all this week, just grabbed what was there and back to bed, so am worried about weighing in on Monday morning.
One good thing is that at work we have started a Healthier You Challenge, not just the factory I work in but a whole company challenge. You have to have teams of at least 5 people and you track your steps, and if you want, your exercise minutes and daily weight lose. The winning team gets a pretty good prize. One more way to push myself towards my goals...YEAH!!!

Yesterday I spent the whole day with my daughter. I think it was a great day of bonding! We spent most of it baby shopping and planning. I ended up spending way more money then I had planned but there are just so many cute baby girl things out there. Bought the babies coming home from the hospital outfit, complete with little shoes and a headband with puffy flowers on both. Then a few other little outfits, and an adorable little hat with a huge pink flower on it, matches one of the outfits perfectly, and some bibs that are all about GRANDMA!!! My daughter registered for her baby shower at a few places also. Boy was I tired by the time we were finished! The only down side is that since we were celebrating her birthday, she will be 20 on Monday, we went out the eat, and boy did I eat!! Which would have been ok, if it had only been lunch, but she wanted ice cream really bad before we left so of course I had to have some with her. I don't know if you all know about Stone Cold Creamery, but the ice cream there is to die for and I'm sure the calories in it would cause a heart attack if I had been thinking straight, but I wasn't....all I could think about was ICE CREAM, with BROWNIES, pecans, HOT FUDGE, and CARMEL, and I ate the whole darn thing...UGGGHHHH! You would have thought that would have been enough but not for me. At 2:30 this morning we got a phone call that a friend of mines 16 year old had been in a car accident and they needed me to come watch/stay with the younger 2 children. She ended up being ok but I think the world of her and was really upset so when I got back home instead of going to bed I sat in the kitchen and ate everything I could get my hands on. The worst part was it didn't even matter what I was eating, just had to shove something in my mouth. The Cadbury mini eggs that I had for Easter are now gone, as is the pretzels, the leftovers from my husbands supper and everything else that wasn't nailed down. Weigh-in tomorrow is going to a bad one.

I was a bit nervous for my weekly weigh-in this morning, but very happy with the numbers I saw, down 3 pounds this week!! WOOHOOO. The extra time spent working out this past week paid off, so glad I stuck to it instead of just leaving the gym like I REALLY wanted to a couple of mornings. Some of the jeans I was wearing before Thanksgiving are starting to fit a bit better, still snug but I can actually zip them without laying on the bed or jumping up and down (what a sight that is). The husband still isn't very supportive but the kids are!!
Ten weeks until my daughters due date!! Can't wait to be a GRANDMA!!!!
