That's awesome...always good to mix it up and add things to your push-ups though! I personally suck at push-ups, but I'm hoping that will change soon.

I start my 3-day training this week, need to walk minimum of 3 miles every other day to start. Time to try and get my stamina back!

It's "health week" at work, they invited a personal trainer to show us some exercises, it was quite crazy. 20 minutes of non-stop action.

some of the workout: 2 minute plank, 2 minute wall sit, lunges, push-ups!

I liked the push-ups, I'm good at those. I've been doing them for 704 days in a row now, not a single day skipped. :)

If becoming a cyborg helps, then it's not too much of a bad thing I suppose.
Just don't tell Arnold Schwarzenegger.

My show season is off to a great start.
I've done two car shows in one week, and even brought a cup home already. :)

I got the Lexus her 20k service yesterday...we've put 22k miles on her in just a little over a year. Bought her end of February last year. Crazy how city driving racks up the miles...well she's also made two trips to Arizona at 1100 miles one way as well.

Haven't done much on cars lately, still getting my strength back after surgery and now the hubby is going under the knife again to get the same surgery I had. His discectomy in October has re-herniated and they are just going to go ahead and make him cyborg like me :)

That's pretty cool. :)

I finally got my car back from the painter, and just in time for a huge show this sunday. I spent today washing both of my cars, and I'm supposed to get up at 5.30 in the morning to drive to the show. it's currently 0.45AM and I'm still not tired.. this is going to hurt in the morning...

A lot of shows here are charity. In fact one of the biggest car meets in the area is called cupcake meet. The move all over the South show wise, and they charge 10 to get in. It is just a huge meet up, not a show. But most of the proceeds raised from these meets go to whatever charity they are supporting at that time. The meet is so big, they have raised thousands of dollars for some pretty awesome charities.

I'm going to have my car back on May 8th, so just in time for the first major show of the year.

Charity shows aren't a huge thing here, I've heard of a few but they seem to be very rare. The last charity show that I knew of (and visited) was a Paul Walker memorial meeting, the proceeds of that meeting went to Paul Walkers' own charity, Reach Out WorldWide.

I'm visiting my painter tomorrow, his company also does window tints and I want to get the rears of my daily driver sedan tinted, mostly to block the badly set-up xenons that people seem to have lately..

We have our first car show on Saturday. It's a show that raises money to help kids get food/supplies they need and education they need in our community. A guy in our car club that works for the school district is the one that has set this up, this is the 2nd year he has done it. Last year had a good turn out, we are hoping for an even bigger one this year for him.

Saturday is also the once a month cars and coffee, but it starts at 6 am in Dallas, I don't know if we have time to do both. We will see.

The most I've done around cars is waiting for my lowrider to get back to me.
I really hope the painter can deliver her back to me next weekend,
because time is running out..

I'm at a race track on May 10th,
then a safety inspection on May 12th,
and a VIP event on Mat 14th!

After that I'm taking it easy on the car shows, as I'm going to be moving into my apartment very soon, which will drain almost all of my money and time.

Awesome job on the push-ups!
My weekend was pretty lazy, still getting used to getting around again, although I did get a good walk in Sunday, actually over a mile, which is a great start I think.

The staples and stitches came out yesterday. Now I need to set up PT. I've been cleared for mild exercise outside of PT, like walking, sitting leg lifts, etc. But my full healing process from inside out I guess is around 3 months...1 month will be on the 8th...so two more to go!

Haven't done much with cars lately, since I cannot do much and the hubby has been having some pain as well. He is seeing a specialist next week.

I've got a 3-day weekend as it's "Kings Day" on monday, which is a national holiday which celebrates the kings' birthday.

I didn't have much plans at first, but as usual my weekend is quickly filling up..

Today I spent time finding a company to make the floor of my apartment that I'm moving into in about two months, I also bought some more parts for my bike so I can do a handlebar swap which I'll finish tomorrow.

Riding my bike is still my main way of getting in shape, and I try to ride 3 to 4 times a week if the weather allows it. of course I also do my daily push-ups, I'm on day number 680 today, that's 680 consecutive days of doing my push-ups, not a single day skipped. :)



When I finish my handlebar swap, I'm going to sand and polish the tow hitch of my Corolla daily driver so I can clearcoat it and put it back on.

I'll find something to do on monday as well, I bet. what about your weekend? :)

Yikes, I'm sorry to hear that you passed out. I get blood taken so often for testing it doesn't bother me any more. They did do some testing at work for us too, if you passed at least 3 of the 5 assessments for the insurance company you got a discount on your deductible for insurance, which is always nice.

Do you have anything fun planned for the weekend?

I hope you had a good birthday :)

Take it easy while you're recovering, increase your movement but don't be too hard on yourself. :)

I had a medical examination at work and after they took two vials of blood from me, I passed out. Took me nearly two days just to recover from that, it's crazy how harsh the effects of passing out can be.. that never happened to me before and I hope that it won't happen again any time soon...

I got outside in the beautiful weather yesterday, got my tennis shoes on and the hubby helped me walk up and down our block, yes I had my walker and back brace, but it was amazing. I feel like I haven't been outside or seen the sun since I checked into the hospital on the 8th. Today is my birthday and I told my hubby I want to go into the office. I do not want to sit at home trying to work when I can be much more productive and see some people I love working with for my birthday. I don't want to be home alone I think is part of it.

This week we are working on increasing those fit bit steps. I want to work towards 1000 steps a day to start :)

Take it easy while you're healing, it might be the most boring thing to do, but it's the best in the end. :)

I went to the Amsterdam International Motorshow today, saw a whole bunch of awesome cars by different manufacturers, even got to go backstage at the Toyota stand and was offered drinks by the Lexus stand, good people. ;)

Surgery went well....few days afterwards stuck in ICU did not. I am home now and I am healing though. Been a long couple of weeks. Trying to get back into the work thing seems harder than I expected, even more so doing it from home.

I am eager to get moving again, but feel stuck in the house because I am not allowed to drive while I still have staples and stitches in my abdomen and lower back.

I hope the surgery went okay.

I'm planning on fixing up my steel wheels, giving them a chrome lip (eBay!) and painting the center in my cars color, that'll make them look decent enough, and it's cheaper than getting alloy wheels.

I ordered a K&N airfilter and received the wrong one, so that's been fun.. waiting for the right one to arrive now.

Do what you can, it's all you can do. The car is meant to be a daily correct? Don't need to do too much to it if it's your daily driver now. Just keep it clean and running.

We are starting to look at buying a car for the daughter. She can start driving in December...that's a scary thought. She will be able to drive herself to school in no time. Another scary thought. lol

I've been super busy with work and stuff at the house. Surgery is Wednesday morning, and I have a lot to do before 5:30 am that morning lol. I'm finishing up laundry now before work. I got some things done this weekend, but not as much as I had hoped to. I'd like to get this house looking nice before hubby comes back from vacation tomorrow night. kiddo said she would help me.

If I got an AE86 I'd also need another parking spot in the garage, hahaha.

I'm working on my sedan on a budget. I did a ton of paint repairs using a paint marker today, I also used a tire/trim gel on my tires and black trim. I've been looking for different hubcaps on eBay as well, as I won't be able to afford alloy wheels for a while.

I'll get alloy wheels next year, as I'm using my old 15" alloys for winter wheels, and the current summer wheels are 14" steelies.. I'm not going to enjoy going back to steelies after the next winter, that's for sure.

Well look at you and your Corollas, now you just need an AE86 model :P

I just had to pay the government a crap ton of taxes, so I won't be working on the cars for a few months. Time to build up my savings again. Between that huge chunk of change and the money I have to cough up for my surgery on Wednesday, I have only $100 left in my savings account right now.

I got the car :D a 1997 Toyota Corolla sedan. :)
My showcar is a 2002 Toyota Corolla hatchback so they really work well together.

They're one generation apart, both are pre-facelift versions of their own generations.

I've had nothing but rain so I haven't had a lot of time to work on the sedan, unfortunately.

So did you get the car yet?

We installed a lift kit and new suspension on a Jeep this weekend, lowered another xB and put new exhaust on it. Been a busy install weekend, but the weather has been gorgeous!

T minus 9 days (not counting today) until my surgery.

I've got many people guessing and so far everyone's wrong. :D
I'll just say this, the car is surprisingly similar, while not being similar at all.
That'll make sense once I show a picture of the car when I actually get it this weekend. ;)

Installing electronics can be fun, but quite a bit of work!
I'll probably install some parking sensors on the rear of the daily soon.
This car is a bit longer than the Modded Corolla.. :)

so the new ride is a guessing game or a secret...got it!

We are hoping to finally install the strobes in the xB this weekend. They were originally in the tC I sold a year ago, and we have yet to install them into the box. Part of it is due to how many wires you have to run and finding the room for the control box...the xB is pretty filled with electronics already.

Yeah, I'm not moving away from Toyota, that's for sure.

In fact I just signed a contract for my second Toyota today. ;)
I get to pick it up next week, I'll have an absolutely bulletproof daily driver!

One bit of luck today, the wrecker that bought my car was able to pick it up today.
So the car is gone, and gone forever. I no longer have to see it parked outside my house,
that'll bring my mood up at the very least.

yeah I know about being broke right now. I have been pinching every penny I have, since the US government on April 15th will be taking 3800 from me for taxes. Still not sure how I owe that much and why, but I do. Yay me. I've already changed all my tax forms so they are taking more out of my paycheck now. Sucks so much though.

I'm going on 3 hours of sleep right now, couldn't sleep last night, so it's going to be a long tiring day.

Yeah I'm down a ton of cash and will only get wreckers' prices back for it.

So I'm on the hunt for an older generation Corolla with no budget at all.
I'm looking around the house, trying to find things I can sell off for some money.
I need something positive to happen to get my mood back up.
Getting a proper reliable car to play around with could definitely do that for me.

I'm sorry to hear the Subaru didn't work out. My friend with the STI, is ready to blow up his Subaru. After seeing all the issues he has had with it and how much money he's wasted on it, I don't think I will ever buy one. I think I will stay in my Toyota family. Fast wise, I will get the IS-F eventually instead of an STI.

This week is off to a meh start. My back is acting up extra bad the last couple of days. Surgery on the 8th cannot get here fast enough.

well, here's some news:

The Subaru is gone.
Still didn't run properly so it's up for sale, first bidder is going to get it.
I don't want that one tonne paperweight in front of my house anymore.
I'm taking my losses and buying an older generation Corolla as a daily driver.
At least those are reliable, Toyota's 4AFE engine is absolutely bulletproof.

I've put the summer wheels back on the Modded Corolla because the season is about to start, and because it's actually driving on a daily basis right now, it's too warm to be using winter tires during the day so it only makes sense to switch back to the summer tires. :)

I agree about the 20+ years, I do not care. The fact that I can now legally import one to the USA is fantastic and it's not too bad in price, only problem is you have to pay cash. So I have to save up 23k pretty quickly lol
I am glad you have both cars back, shame on the garage for taking so long in letting you know your car was ready, that's not cool. So the wheels going back on the Corolla because it's officially show season again?

I called the garage again, reached down my phone and strangled the guy that answered.

Result: My car is actually done now, after having been in repairs for just over two weeks.
Part replaced: fuel pump
Time taken: 2 days
(what the heck have they done during the other two weeks?!)

I'm picking the Subaru up on saturday and I'm going to be working on both the Subaru and the Corolla all weekend. I'm going to put the 18" wheels back on the Corolla and I've got a lot of small parts that need to go on the Subaru.

R32 Skylines are awesome cars, the 20+ years really doesn't matter.. That car is absolutely timeless. :)

Yeah my friend's WRX is down again....this car is seriously cursed. He bought it used for 20k, and since he bought it, he's dropped another 10k into it, having to rebuild engine, etc. It's just one thing after another. We are wanting a performance vehicle again, but this one is not going to be it, if I have any say. We are actually looking into an R32 Skyline, they are now legal in the USA and we can actually buy one through a company that already imports them. Talk about a fun car if we can get our hands on one. Because they are 20+ years old, they won't have to go through inspections like normal cars do, and we could find parts for them pretty easily, we've done our research. We can get a NISMO fully loaded one for around 23k and it will have less than 60k miles on it :)

I have driven my car for a grand total of 3 days and it's already back at the garage with a dead fuel pump. They're stalling the repair and have looked at every single part they could look at aside from the pump.. I went to give those guys a surprise visit to "have a look at their planning" and I think I got my point across to them. I better have the car back next weekend or my next surprise visit might not be as friendly....

I'm glad that I don't have a performance Subaru because those can get real expensive to repair. I've got a simple 1.3 liter engined Subaru that doesn't actually use a Subaru engine. it's the body style of a Suzuki Swift / Geo Metro, so it also uses the Suzuki engine. and its single point injection system is known to be sensitive.

Unfortunately I can't get a brand new injection needle, as it would take about six weeks to arrive. I don't have that kind of time. The car has been running on pure injector cleaner for half an hour today, and the entire system from tank to injectors has been cleaned. so hopefully I'll be able to reliably run the engine again for a long time. I will be looking for a used injection needle on a scrapyard somewhere, and I'll keep that in the car as a spare.
it's only a 4 minute job to replace the needle and I'd be able to do that at the side of the road if the problem ever occurs again.

The rest of the car seems to be in perfect shape as far as an 18 year old car goes, so I should be able to drive the car around for at least a few more years.

I am sorry to hear the car had you stranded...that sucks.
Yeah used Subaru's tend to be a headache at first. A good friend bought a used STI about a year ago. It's been out of commission and in shops more than he has driven it. He completely rebuilt the entire engine and turbo in the car when it decided to kill itself coming back from a big car show we do every year in Arkansas. In repairs, fixing and tunes, he's dropped 10k into a car he paid 20k for. At this point he could have bought a brand new one. I feel so bad for him, he is so frustrated with the car, and I don't blame him. It's truly a love hate relationship.

I'm currently collecting Subaru parts in a big box.

My Subaru left me stranded yesterday, after several hiccups on the highway, it eventually stalled and refused to start. the fuel injection system (single point injection) has died and I'm waiting for a replacement part. I suppose standing still for 3 months at the dealership hasn't done the injection system any good, and single point injection is a sensitive system to begin with...

During the test drive the car still ran fine, so I've just been very unlucky with this one. some brake cleaner/degreaser in the throttle body got the car to start again and I was able to drive it to the Toyota dealership who will be replacing the fuel filter, checking the fuel pump, checking the spark plugs, and replacing the injection system.

Cleaning the injection system might be possible, but I really don't want to risk this happening again in like 8 months, so I'll probably go for the more expensive option and have it replaced. I got the car to the Toyota dealership that also services the Modded Corolla so I know these guys are honest and won't be trying to rob me blind.
They're part of a dealership chain that also has some Suzuki dealerships, and as my Subaru is Suzuki-engined, it's safe to say that the Toyota dealership will be able to check on my car properly.

Thanks :)

I'm having loads of fun with the car already, got about 7 small mods done.
I've uploaded a new picture on the team wall, definitely looks facelifted with the clear indicator housings that I put on. :)

I picked up my new ride today!

The first mods are already lined up and I'll probably work on the car a bit over the weekend.
installing a radio, possibly replacing speakers, replacing the front indicator housings with clear housings, removing damaged stickers, fixing up some of the silver paint that's flaked off the bumper. I'm using the Corolla's old silver paint for that last one, I'm on a budget!

Yeah in AZ we didn't have stickers, in TX we have two big ugly stickers on our windshield, one is registration and one is your inspection.
Good news, starting March first, there will only be one sticker. You will be required to go get an inspection and then go renew your registration and to get your registration you will now have to give them the inspection report and your insurance card showing active car insurance (insurance was already required). They will now link your inspection to your registration sticker. I won't get the one sticker on my cars though till next year. Both cars were due for registration in January and the new Lexus isn't due for inspection till 2016 (new cars don't have to have an inspection until 2 years old).

The car passed inspection (after repairs) today, I'm picking it up on friday.
DMV website hasn't updated the inspection date yet,
but I guess that's just the government being slow.

We get a piece of paper that goes with the cars registration papers in the glovebox,
no stickers or anything like that. :)

Yes you definitely need a radio!
Sorry you did not get the car by the weekend, but those inspections are a good thing. We have to get yearly inspections in Dallas County as well, but they are not as in depth as the ones you guys do. They check tires, brakes, all lighting works (headlights/tail lights, etc), horn works properly and it passes all the emissions tests. Then you get a sticker that goes on the inside of your front windshield next to the registration sticker...well that where it goes in TX. When I lived in AZ, the part of AZ I lived in didn't require inspection, and our registration went on our license plate. Each state/county is different here.

Well I'm all about the Subaru's now, hahaha. get the WRX! ;)

an xB is a nice car for her to start with, not a bad deal at all!
Insurance is definitely high at the start so it makes sense to go with the oldest car.

Unfortunately my Subaru got delayed by another week. The garage was unable to get it road worthy in time for me to pick it up this weekend. Cars need to pass a road safety / general conditions check every year, and the certificate of the last check ended two days ago.

I knew that after standing outside and not moving for 3 months, the car barely had brakes left, they were rusted too badly and would need replacing or repairing. They probably found some other things that needed to be replaced or repaired to get a new certificate because they were still waiting for a few parts last friday, and haven't managed to fully finish the car before the work day ended.

They told me the car will actually be done on monday, but I can't go collect it halfway through the week unless I take a day off.. I might actually do that on friday to go get the car.

I want to spend the next weekend just working on it, I have some small mods planned, putting a radio in being the main one, as there's no radio in the car at this point.

I saw the pic...what an awesome daily driver! How exciting!
I'm hoping after taxes are due on April 15, to start stuffing savings for the Lexus. We have the BBS wheels sitting in the garage, her stereo system is hooked up and sounds amazing, the tint was done when we first got her, but we have some other plans. We will put her either on coilovers or air ride, and we really want the Rocket Bunny Kit, and put the dual exhaust that goes with the body kit (even if it really has not much purpose on a half electric car), it would make it look nicer.
Our goal in the next year is have enough down to buy a house and a 3rd vehicle again, since the kiddo will be able to get her learners permit around Christmas time. We are going to probably give her the xB, it is the oldest vehicle we have, it is safe, runs great and insurance will cost the least on it. We are looking for a faster car again, leaning towards a used IS-F or RS-F Lexus or a Subaru WRX STI.

Upgrades are good, and it's good to hear she's doing well. :)

There's two pictures of the Justy on the team wall.
I'm most likely picking it up this saturday.

OMG, I've actually heard of the Justy, but never actually seen one. hahaha, I can't wait to see a picture, I bet that will be a fun daily driver!

Mum is doing really well. She was home from the hospital in less than 36 hours, and she is so stubborn she was taking care of her drains on her own, without my help. I am hoping she might get one of the two drains removed today. I will have to get with my sister to see where she is on the amount of cc that is still draining.

I am back in TX, flew back Saturday night, my sister is now there for the week with her. She bought my 1 year old niece too so mum gets to spend time with her grandbaby too. My younger brother went to up visit this weekend as well, and he bought my mom a new fridge! Hers has been on the outs for awhile, leaking and no ice working, etc. So it was an amazing surprise, I am sure she probably cried, but that was amazing that he did that for her. I replaced her coffee pot and microwave with new ones when I was there for Christmas. It seems we are slowly upgrading her :)

I hope both you and your mum are doing better!
That's a disease no one wants to battle with..


I did end up finding a daily driver and I bought it yesterday.
They're going to service the car as it has been standing still for 3 months.
And I'm picking it up next week.

The car that I ended up getting is an AWD Subaru Justy.
This generation is a Suzuki Swift shell with Subaru's AWD drivetrain underneath.
These things are heaps of fun in the snow and off road!
Low weight, so low tax, and fuel economy is about the same as the Corolla.

I'll put up a picture of the "Suzubaru" on the main page of the group.

Yikes, I am sorry to hear you had to chase someone down and are not having much luck finding a daily driver.

Sorry for the slow response, I have spent the last 2 days in the hospital with my mum, she had her breast cancer removed yesterday, the entire left side, all tissue and first and second level lymph nodes in her armpit. She is home tonight, comfy in her own bed, so I might actually sleep a little bit tonight.

Ouch! I know my cashflow will start hurting once I move into my apartment..

The 1.4 Micra got sold, another one I looked at got sold, and so did a third one.
There's one 1.4 left but it's at a car dealership that's known for selling cars that have been crashed and badly repaired (they'll put a new bumper on and sell it, even if it's crooked underneath) so that's a no-go.

I'm currently out of cars to look at, unfortunately.

I also got in contact with the wrong side of a moving car yesterday.
I jumped but still got tapped by a car that didn't stop at a pedestrian crossing that I was walking on.. they didn't even stop after they hit me.
I literally chased the car down on foot and made them stop eventually.

oooh that would be a great little daily driver! I hope it works out for you.

We are going to work on budgeting better this year. Looks like the IRS doesn't like the new income and we came up short so we have to pay them $3,800 on April 15 this year :(

I already changed my tax documents for work so this shouldn't happen again, but now my paychecks are a bit over 200 less, that's 400 less a month :(

I have been so busy, I haven't topped those push-ups yet.. I'll get to that soon!
I did walk close to 13 miles last weekend, nice cardio. ;)

The search for a daily driver might come to an end this friday.
I'm going to look at a 2002 1.4 Nissan Micra.
Hopefully it's in good condition, if it is, my search is over!
