Random Tuesday – Cars, ski abs, back pain, etc




  • Sorry for my lack of blogging yesterday. I got the kids all packed up, got in the car, and drove to daycare. Got back in my car and well, it didn’t start. A silent turn, which of course indicates starter. Sigh. Had I not had student conferences all day, I would have stayed with it until I could get a tow truck out there. But no, so I had Ash come pick us up. I walked into my office five minutes before conferences began and then the day got crazier and crazier. I met the tow truck around 4;30 and he toted it off to Honda.
  • Got a call from them this morning and it IS the starter but it costs about 2-300 less than I anticipated. So that’s a pretty nice thing. I mean, it’ll still set me back but hey, cars have issues. It happens. It only needs to last me another 3 or so years.
  • Because yesterday felt exceedingly challenging. I decided I was going to treat myself to Chinese for dinner. The kids and Ash wanted homemade mac and cheese so I made that and then once Baby D was in bed, I went to Bamboo Wok. I ordered my food, got a can of Coke, then went into Publix for a few things while my food cooked. The little drink fridge they have at the Chinese place runs super cold and when I cracked that Coke – OMG – it was kind of slushie and just perfect. I don’t really drink soda anymore so THAT was an excellent treat.
  • I think I pinched a nerve in my back doing the “ski abs” portion of T25 last night. The girl in this gif looks lke she is dying and um, well, those  re just ski abs!tumblr_m6lifnpzky1qz97dv
  • And THAT is how something went all wonky in my back. Ugh.
  • I don’t remember which workout we do today but god help me if there are any burpees.
  • I’m going out for Japanese tonight and I am pumped. You know, I’d eat sushi every day if I could. Not kidding.
  • So much to do, so little time. I’m out. Enjoy your Tuesday!

  1. Car trouble sucks it was only a few months back that we had to replace out starter motor in the car that was around the same time we had other car trouble and I had to be towed back from Lemon Tree Passage which is about an hour from where I live

  2. Ohhhh burpees…I’ve developed a love/hate relationship with them. When I first started working out, I wouldn’t even attempt them. Then one day, I decided I should at least give them a shot… I was so proud of myself that I could even do them half-assed, and I still kind of get that glow when I’m done them. “I couldn’t even think of doing these before, and now I can!!” – but WHILE I’m doing them, I do NOT enjoy them. lol

  3. UGH! Sorry about your car. Those issues are always ALWAYS unexpected and annoying. Glad it was less than you anticipated, but still – spending any money that you don’t expect to shell out is not fun.

    That girl in the gif sure doesn’t look like she’s having fun…hope you didn’t end up with burpees the next day, and that your back is back to normal! 🙂
