Accountability Day 8

Monday, January 21, 2013

I took my Dodge Caravan off-roading yesterday. Apparently it's not an off-roading vehicle. I bet if we weren't in Canada in the dead of winter it could be...

Footage of results can be viewed at...

Day 8 accountability.

How I am losing weight is an absolute enigma to me. I'm BARELY staying in range, chewing gum like a baseball player chews tabacco and I discovered 154.2 smiling up at me from the scale. I think it was God's way of keeping me sane since the running total to maintain our vehicles for the month of January is $4000.00. (not including gas at 1.18/liter) I do NOT make enough as a maid to have these lemons in my laneway. I may need to invent teleportation. Stat.

Portions: Decent. I'm dancing around 1600. Except last night when I celebrated cheating death with a bag of corn chips and a can of knock-off rootbeer. Next time I almost die I'm hitting up the L.C.B.O. (Ontario liqueur store...Tequila is NOT overrated).

Water: 10 cups...BOO-YAH!

Sleep: Shhh....let's not dwell on the negative

Attitude: Absolutely fabulous. I love life. My hubs called me tonight to hear of the car doctor's prognosis but, because I have a son that was suspended from school for getting in a fight (Cops & Robbers does not mind their "Hands Off" policy, F.Y.I. my son was the cop), I didn't care to check.
I have no clue if I'll be walking 40km to work on Wednesday...I don't care!

So glad that you are OK. Too bad the car is not as well off as you are. Praying for some financial relief for your family.

    Wow, yes I noticed how expensive gas is up there when we went to Kimberley. Sheesh, at least we could get gas here and not need it until we got back to Montana. A bit better here than on the west coast.

Hang in there! Attitude is 90% of it! Spring will be here before you know it! The days are already getting longer! You'll be able to get out and enjoy it then!

    emoticon My, you live an interesting life!!!! I certainly have been there with sons, so I can understand your issues well with the suspension, and living in Colorado and driving two very old vehicles in our cold winters also makes me very sympathetic to you as well. We are still trying to save up to finish the repairs on the newest one (a 2006 Ford Taurus). The older one (a 2003 Subaru) is probably the more reliable of the two even with well over 200,000 miles on it. I t certainly is much better in the ice and snow here!
