Any Time Now...
Wednesday, January 23, 2013
So far this year isn’t going my way. So any time now I’d just like a break. The furnace seems to be working, but hasn’t been able to keep up with this cold snap we’re having. The bathroom, well nothing new with the bathroom has happened. It’s my car this time.
I have been leaking coolant. Now I know that my heat has been wonky. I added coolant and it worked fine. Until a week later I had to add more coolant. And now a week later my coolant light came on again, and my heat is slowly dying a painful death. So tonight I am going to get it checked.
Now my car has been a good car for a long time. It’s time to die, but we can’t afford it to die right now. Rachael’s car still has until 2015 before it’s paid off. *sigh* I need a better job. Rachael needs a better job as well. *sigh*.
Right now there is a car dealership that is running a lease on the Chevy Cruze for $87 a month. That’d be great if I got that rate. I just hope there’s no huge down payment for it. I think we’d be able to do that, but first we’re going to see if I can just get this leak problem fixed.
On top of everything else, I am stumped. I weigh every day just to see if I am on track. I’m not normally stressed about these numbers, except for the past three days I jumped up 6 pounds. I don’t know why. I know I haven’t gained 6 pounds in the last three days.
I drink 9 cups of water a day. I mostly stay in my calorie, carb, protein and fat ranges. Sometimes I am out of it, but I try to stay in it. The only change in the last week or so is that I started working out on a regular basis. I just don’t understand. Why would a person go up 6 pounds in less than a week?
I know weight loss is not just measured on the scale and that it’s how I feel and how things fit. And I do feel better. My clothes fit better. But I’d like to see the numbers reflect that. I just want to know what my body is doing.
Could it really be that I gained 6 pounds of muscle? I’ve been working out since Friday the 18th. I’ve gone four times to the gym, the last three I have started to lift weights to help tone. I do cardio for at least half of my workout time. My fat should be burning off, yes? Any thoughts on the subject would be appreciated.
