Ok, here it is Thursday, I've made it to the gym 1 time this week. However I have jumped on my tredmill and elipitcal machine the past 2 days.
I didn't make it to they gym again this morning, all because I'm stressing out over money and what little of it I have. Here lately everything I do I stop and think ok how much is it going to cost me. For example, drive 20 mins to gym=gas money, or stay home run on tredmill and elipitcal=sweat for free, lol.

We are even thinking about cancelling our vacation that we planned back in February. It SUCKS, I can't stand living like this, its driving me CRAZYYYYYY.

I'm at least doing something I guess, and I do feel better after running on tredmill, however when I'm at the gym I get a full hour of "ME" time. Kids go into the daycare and I get to take a class where my instructors kick my b'hind. As much as I miss being there, I should just be happy I'm still motivated to use the equipment I have at home.

I know I'm just blabbing here and I'm not the only one that is strapped for cash. Lord knows our gas prices are breaking us all. I've even had to discontinue my home phone service, one less expense, I'm on the verge of discontinuing the DTV as well. I don't ever watch TV and my children have enough movies that if they wanna watch something they can pop a movie in.

I've got so much going on right now, I wanna scream. I'm not only going to college, but I'm also taking a course to become a medical transcriptionist. Which will be something I can do from home until I'm done college. But its hard to concentrate on it when the kids are fighting. I get so aggravated when I'm trying to work on my studies and the k ids can't get along. Mostly because I know the sooner I get this done the sooner I can start to work......aaaaaHHHHHHHH

On top of the fact I can't get my desktop to work so I have to do my transcribing on my laptop which is a little unconfortable. As well as the desk chair I have, I need new one, but once again, it cost money I don't have. eeeerRRRRR

I just need to take a chill pill..........................

    Sorry about your computer issue from your last blog. My dh got in way to late and I had already shut the computer down. Did you manage to fix the problem? Sorry about your money troubles... it is such a challenge. But kudo's to you for still being motivated to do your exercise at home. YOU CAN DO IT!!! And... kids fighting... that's my life story too!! Maybe you and I should get together and have our own little kid free party. LOL

    Have a great day, Naomi

    I totally understand. I actually used to go to curves but I decided that I couldn't afford it. I have cancelled cable, I have cancelled home long distance, caller id, etc... I try to keep my driving to a minimum because of gas, I drive an hour to work so I limit the rest. I hate grocery shopping because everything has gotten more expensive. However, I too have not lost my motivation to work out. I have some old vhs workout tapes that I do at home and I have a gazelle glider that is really fun. I do what I can when I can. I figure as long as i am up doing something, it is way better than I was before.

    If you have the gym membership, I would try to go some, but alternate days or plan for when you go to do other errands so that you aren't just using gas to go to the gym.

    I am glad you vented. Do what you need to do. If you can't go anywhere on vacation, do something fun as a family close to home. There are always things you can do. Ask your kids for help with your workouts and let them encourage you. Make a reward system where your kids are able to reward you for meeting your goals. If they are working with you, maybe they will fight less when you are trying to get something accomplished.

    Good luck. You are an amazing woman working so hard. Read Proverbs 31 if you have a bible close. The woman of good character is a very uplifting story and you fit right in there. You are more precious than rubies :)
