Day 4 of 28- I Crave Results!

Monday, December 24, 2012

Well my mother helped me yesterday to figure out that watching what I was eating lately has been easier after I started Boot Camp, because I crave the results over the peach pie I keep craving.

She of course told me this loudly and clearly after I was annoying her with my giddiness of how I was so happy that I haven't had to worry about food so much. Actually I do worry about food, but it's just getting enough food into my system.

But today I do have to say was very stressful, my 13 year old van had decided to give out the transmission as I was doing my early Sunday morning paper route 5 o'clock in the morning having no idea which back road highway I was on.

Which this was the last straw for my mother and I, since I have been having issues with my van while my mother and I haven't been able to afford to fix it no less give it an oil change or even gas every week.
Which to me has been a pain since this past semester the cost of gas for me to drive everywhere that I needed while the emergency brake wouldn't turn off had me in a pickle.

So now I don't have to worry about the van, because this next week my mother is going to figure out how we are going to scrap the van (hopefully get $200 back from the metal, since the body is still in good shape) while we are going to share the newer van.Since my mother figured out that it was easier for her to find places to call to get a ride to her appointments while I am turning out to be the main driver (which is one of the main reasons why I did stay close to home instead of going off to an university).

Though there will probably be troubles in the future of having to share a car with my mother but in the end it will be cheaper, and safer for me when I have to do 4 a.m. driving everyday. And maybe in the end I will be able to save money over time to actually buy myself a car within the next year.

Well for my workout today, I did 20 mins for one of my paper routes that I walk weekly. Which I did as fast as I could so I could go home and take a nap. Since with the car troubles I ended up working till 10 a.m. with my mother.after having gotten up at 1 a.m.
The enforcement that did get me to unbury our family's treadmill later that night was because I didn't want to lose any results I that I'm striving for (and not have to walk extra another day, or feel bad about not finishing my workout). I would of walked outside but by the time I felt alert enough it was getting dark, and after the first snowstorm of the season I haven't been able to trust drivers as I walk along the high traffic road I live on where people tend to rush during the holiday season.

So in the end I was able to complete my workout with the Day 4 video, which was a core workout. And I was actually able to do it without complaining, since they where all doable even with my horribly weak core.

So far the hardest video I would have to say is the cardio workout, since I can't seem to handle that much movement in a short burst of time without having breathing problems.

And now tomorrow will be a busy day for how many things I have to deal with before everything shuts down for the holidays. But soon as everything does slow down I will be able to relax and enjoy my break. I'm just hoping though that the gifts I had
bought for my family will be enjoyed for how much I had buying them.

And maybe one day I can right a blog post that isn't a novel long.

Merry Christmas! emoticon
