July 1st

Sunday, July 01, 2012

I started the 28 day bootcamp today. Last time I didn't quite get it finished. This time I am going to make sure I finish. I have a sit down job now and I need to make sure I exercise daily or I won't be able to get the weight off. I am going to do all the videos that I can and I a going to walk daily before I go to work. Yesterday I walked two and a half miles and today I walked almost 3 and a half. I think I am off to a good start.

    Good for you! That bootcamp has great workouts! I tried it once but didn't finish either (darn knee wouldn't allow it at the time). You can do it this time! Great job on the morning walks too ~ what a great way to start your day!

my car

Monday, January 16, 2012

Well I am going to start all over for the month of January. I had little sleep last night because I am trying to decide what to do about my car. Today I emailed the Attorney General and hopefully I will know something by the end of the week. I have to get my positive thinking back on. I will let you know later this week if things are looking up for me. I really need to start reading more blogs and trying to keep all my thoughts positive. At least I took the first step. Yeah me.

stressed out

Sunday, January 15, 2012

No wonder I can't lose weight. I have a housefull of stress. Mom and I pay for the food and bill for seven people. My sister needs to take responsibility for herself. I have had my fill of her and her family taking advantage of my mom. She only thinks of herself and no one else. My moms savings are almost gone and she doesn't care. I am going to go out and find a second job tomorrow so I can help her out. She has such a good heart and it is sad that my sister has to take advantage of that. We had supper tonight and we didn't have enough for everyone to eat. Are they really that dumb that they don't need to buy food for the house? I just don't understand their way of thinking. They are buying the food to eat during the day but mom is buying all the meat and supper makings. That is the most expensive meal of the day. How can they not understand that she needs help in paying for things


my car

Sunday, January 08, 2012

Today I got bad news on my car. I will have to go and have the engine rebuilt. When the car shop changed the oil they didn't get the plug back in right and it blew all the oil out of the engine. Now I have no car until I can get it fixed. I don't know how I will pay for it. All I can hope for is to be able to make payments on it. I will find out more on Monday when I get it diagnosed.

    I knew a lady at church years ago, same thing happened to her - this has been most of 35 years ago, as I was still living at home, so I really don't know how she resolved it, but I know there was a lot of talk about it at the time. Your other blog said you had called the Attorney General's office. Yea! Sometimes just making that first step IS the most positive outlook you can take on it. I bet if you posted your story on the Click and Clack Brothers ("Car Talk" its one of the NPR radio shows or maybe off PBS? I dunno), they'd tell you what to do too and how to make it stick!! I am not sure if they mention names but a business does NOT want their mis-deeds being made public - quick way to dry up business. And it doesn't matter if you have owned a car 1 year or 5 years, if your oil is changed every 2-4,000 miles, it still doesn't justify them not putting the oil plug on correctly!!

    Well I talked to the car shoppe yesterday and they told me that I have had the car for a year and I should have had the oil changed every 3000 miles. I told them that is just a guideline. I am neglegent in not getting the oil changed but I am not the one who didn't put the plug back in right. Therefore it is still their responsibility. I am going to call a lawyer and then we will see who is at fault.

    So sorry to hear that! I had an engine rebuilt in a car once then someone rear-ended me a few months later and totaled my car. The insurance didn't cover the rebuilt engine so I didn't get my money's worth and had to buy a new car. UGH! I hope you can get some help from the car shop.

Please don't turn to eating wrong to deal with this stressor! Do some exercise instead. Thinking of you.

    OMG...they admitted to not putting the oil plug back in? They have to pay for the you locate comsumer protection office and get them involved.

I ALWAYS check my oil and look under the car for leaking after an oil change, I have always heard about this happening.

    If it was the shops fault, shouldn't they be responsible for fixing it? I would sure inquire about it!

    Good for you! I had to make a few modifications to the video since I haven't worked out much in December, but I did it! It felt good to move even if it was just for 10 minutes! I waited till 9:15 pm to do it since I was at Dave and Barb's for New Year's Day. Should have done it in the morning before I went there, but I was too tired and lazy from my NYE dance. That was the first New Year's Eve in years that I have actually gone out. Thanks to a reconnection with a friend on Facebook!

Here's to Day 2!
