I do however get to update this little guy because I have passed 25 pounds now so that's kind of fun. I'll take it! I never thought it would be thrilling updating the badge every 5 pounds but it really is :) This week was pretty good food-wise right up until the end. More on that in a bit. Almost all of our classes at the gym were cancelled due to Spring Break this past week so the only one going was boot camp on Tuesday night which I DID GO TO! Then on Saturday morning I went for a brisk 7 km walk with one of my boot camp girls (Lindsay :). It finally felt like spring, then promptly snowed the next day.
Now I'm going to whine a little bit. It's not really weight-loss related but it did make me jump head first into a giant bag of chips and container of dip last night. I ATE THE WHOLE THING.
For the most part, the older I get, the more okay I am with being single. People that know me in real life will scoff. But it's true. The older I get, I'm getting better at it. It's not something I would EVER choose but hey, that's the way it is. That and hearing annoying stories about friends husbands sometimes makes me glad I don't have one. :) Keep them coming ladies!
This brings me to the last one, financial calamity. The one striking pain right now. By this I mean the unexpected things. The unexpected $$ expensive $$ things. While I LOVE the condo I bought last year, sometimes I do feel the weight and the pressure of being a single income and would so love to split the mortgage and bills sometimes. The pressure that would alleviate would be wonderful. When I'm really into worrying, I start thinking about money for retirement and where that's going to come from and hope like crazy that I won't be an old lady eating cat food. I mean, what would my cat eat?? Or when something breaks down, it would be so nice to say "hey, can you deal with this one?" I've had one thing after another this past year and most recently, which has prompted this whole whiny thing, is my transmission. Yes, sigh, my car. I have a 97 Honda Civic with very low kilometers on it and right now, it's been at the garage since Thursday and my mechanic (I love him) is looking for a used transmission for me because my choice is scrapyard or transmission for around $1300 or $1500. I can't afford a car payment of any kind at the moment so my choice is really transmission or no car at all. No, I won't rob a bank!
|Not my car but exactly my car.|
Better go start taste-testing cat food. KIDDING!!! I'm going to make a tuna melt, shower, get my pj's on and settle in for The Good Wife. So happy it's a new episode tonight. :)
Can't believe I've got 99 followers that I know of. That's crazy. Crazy awesome but crazy all the same :)
