Time On My Hands

Monday, January 21, 2013

The day started great other than being the really cold out. I got ready to go out, went out to start the car, it didn't really want to start but it did, so I came back into the house while it warmed up. I went back out a half hour later to every light on the dash lit up and the radio and back window defogger not working. Shut it off to reset the computer (should mention my car is a Civic Hybrid), it wouldn't start. Okay after the last couple of days where it's been cold and high winds, the battery probably crapped out. So called the hubby to tell him I wasn't going anywhere. I was upset. I had to go the studio today tidy up and move some things as the real estate was showing the building this afternoon - my landlady has had it for sale for over 6 yrs. I called the hubby who informed me that our nephew was home from work today and call him to go to the store (he lives in the town and has a spare key).
With that done it was like...now what do I do. All my plans for the day were centered around being away from the house. So I grabbed paper, pen and my water bottle and re-wrote my To-Do List for today. It was a short list as we had cleaned the house over the weekend. So I had laundry, treadmill and vacuuming. Decided after I was done (except treadmill that's tonight during Biggest Loser) to turn on my laptop and watch Netflix. Of course, no new movies I was interested in watching but wait what's that..a documentary - Hungry For Change. It actually is a pretty informative and thought provoking piece. It talks about food and why/how our body needs/uses it. Didn't agree with all their suggestions but I do have a few notes from it. It was also a great motivational tool. To have a voice put into words what I've been feeling since I made the change in my food choices. I highly recommend it.

Now to find another documentary to watch after Biggest Loser.

Have a great evening everyone!

    Its a great idea to keep a running list of things to do. Action type items that can keep us away from TV (and its food commercials) and the no paying attention food eating. A "to do" list of chores, improvement projects, or even relaxing items like reading a book, writing a letter, calling a friend, taking a bubble bath, trying a new workout DVD, or doing the WII. Anything to distract us from being emotional: Tired, Lonely, Angry, Depressed, Bored, Disappointed, Frustrated. Its really good that emotions come and emotions go, so if we find something to do and wait around, another good emotion will come along soon.
    Have a great day tomorrow!

    Don't you just hate car trouble... I dread it! I got called in as a substitute cook at the soup kitchen today - first time I ever did it, and had to do it solo... Sure changed my plans for the day as well.... but in a good way. Hope car is in a better mood tomorrow..

    We've had super cold weather too the last couple of days. So sorry about your car problems. We had our car do the same thing last week and we got a new battery and away it started the next time. Our car is a 2006 and it still had the original battery in it, so stands to reason! Sure are thinking of you with your car. If we don't have wheels anymore, it sure is a bummer it seems. You got alot done though because of it! emoticon Good for you!! Take care and have good days ahead.
