My day started out well….
I had to work during the day today (my crazy schedule), but it wasn’t too bad because I had taken Saturday and Sunday off. When my alarm went off at 4:00 I hit snooze so I could get an extra 30 mins of sleep and then it started. I knew I wanted to get up and exercise. I knew that I would be happier if I did, and I knew the guilt would keep me awake, so I might as well get up, and so I did. I got up at 4:00 this morning to do my 30 day Shred Dvd and I felt good afterwards! I did it. I got past the hardest part and that is the start of the exercise. I ate my pumpkin oatmeal with the fixins like I had been and was set for the day.
I got to work and we started decorating for Christmas, and though I’m still not in the Christmas spirit, every little bit helps. I knew that I needed to take my car into the shop to get the brakes worked on, so I dropped the car off and headed back to work to get in my snack plain yogurt with blueberries, coconut, white choco chips, and almonds.
And then I got the call….
$700 to fix my car. Say what? Yea that’s what I said when they told me. I was not expecting a $700 dollar bill today, $200 maybe. My stomach sank…
My heart dropped…
and I knew I needed one thing…
For lunch I had a ham sandwich on Arnold’s sandwich thins with flax and fiber. I used Laughing Cow cheese and I must say it was soooo good.
And Snikiddy Cheese Fries
And for dessert Weight Watchers carrt cake bites? I’m not sure really what they are called. I got them as a sample from the Prior Fat Girl Get together, and I must confess I think I left them for too long. I ate one and it was okay, but then I started thinking that maybe it had gone bad… I know, crazy, but I still ended up throwing the other one away, and you know how I hate to waste food 😦
So I had my lunch, but didn’t get too crazy, I was just heart broken over the car thing. I wasn’t expecting such a large bill come this time of the year. I have Christmas, and my big 30th birthday party…. it was just a little too much.
One good thing is that my grandmother let me use her stand mixer. I’m going to have to take a picture of this thing because when I saw it I thought Whoa… this thing is an antique. 🙂 It’s pretty old, but I went right home and made a batch of Mama Pea’s Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Balls… and remembered all the ingredients this time… soo good! I could have eaten the dough by itself. I was in love with the dough at this point.
For dinner I had a Morningstar Riblet sandwich with pickles and onions. It tastes just like a McRib. Not that I’m bragging about knowing what a McRib taste like… it’s just what I heard. 🙂
I got to spend the evening with my friends…
I put up the Christmas tree though it’s not decorated just yet.
I had a glass of wine and a shot of patron.
It ended up being an okay… if I could just get that $700 car bill out of my head.
I won’t be posting tomorrow. I have a Christmas event that I’m going to with the fam. I’ll def post again on Sunday.
