It turns out I completely missed week 8! I've thought about blogging so many times but I just haven't felt like I could write a well thought out blog post and I just hate trying to squeeze a lot of things in while I'm rushing. So instead of writing a little, I guess I just haven't written at all. Going back to work part time has just made my "want to do" list a little more difficult to accomplish than I'm used to. :) I know that in time I'll find a balance and rhythm; I'm just not there yet. So please bear with me.
It's another manic Monday and I'm linking up with my friends Laura, Jill and Hollie. We link up every Monday to get our week started off with some accountability and we share our weekly plan. Please stop by their blogs and leave them a little hello or shout out of encouragement and feel free to join in for Manic Monday if you'd like! :)
My last weigh in was February 10th and I'm frustrated to say that I am just about right where I was at that last weigh in. The truth is, I'm pretty sure that I gained a few pounds throughout the month of February and I spent the last week taking them off.
My exercise is spot on and I'm so proud of how far I've come in both my ability and consistency. It's the food choices that are giving me issues!
I've been having some knee pain and I think it's related to a lot of squat focused exercises my trainer has been having me do. I'm confused by that because I know my form is good and I'm not coming forward on my toes. Or maybe it's the elliptical (?). I am wondering if it's not time for new shoes as well. However, new shoes just aren't in my budget right now (more on that later).

About a week and a half ago, I took my mom to Chicago for a doctor appointment. On our way we drove in extreme, EXTREME fog. I heard a rock hit my windshield when we passed a semi but didn't see any damage so I just went on. Then the next day, on our way home, I got pulled over for speeding and got a ticket. I was honestly speeding and was stupidly rushing to get home. It was my own fault. I own it. But that bad choice cost me $150!!! Yikes!
Last week as I was driving down a local highway, I watched a crack shoot up and across my windshield! I actually saw it cracking! I called my husband and he asked if I heard anything hit my window and I said no .... and then I remembered that the week before, something had hit my window. The spot of the crack is just below the dark area at the bottom of the windshield (tint or antenna tape or something, I guess(?) ) so from inside the car you can't actually see the spot where it was hit. But as soon as I got out of my car to look, I could see where the rock had hit and the crack is coming up directly from it. If we turn it into our insurance there is a $100 deductible. We need to find out how much the cost actually is and determine if it's worth it to just replace it ourselves and not turn it in. Sooo frustrating.
I don't remember if I mentioned that I had washed and dried my Fitbit just before Christmas, so I've been without that. I was hoping that now that I had a part time job I would be able to purchase a new one without feeling guilty. Heck, now I have to pay a ticket and replace windshield. And after that get new shoes. That means there is not a Fitbit in my near future. :( Oh well, at least I do have an (albeit small!) additional income. I should be thankful for that!
