i am rambling again, but not far!!

Honey goes to the doctor today and while he is there, I am going to get on their scale. Why?? Who knows!! Self abuse??
Possibly just to remind myself of what I am doing to myself.
I am staying home alot more now since the weather has been so bad, and trying to save money and trying to keep my car in half way decent running order.
We have 4 vehicles, 2 currently are sitting with flat tires, one leaking transmission fluid and missing.
Then there is the "new" truck, which was purchased in May, and spent the entire month of December in the service department.
Only to go pick it up to find the same exact problem as before.
Then words were exchanged with myself and several people who work there, not to mention a tit a tat with the warranty holder.
So, it still needs to be checked and worked on, however, it is currently being driven to get Honey to work, as it is his only means of getting there.
Then there is my car.
11 years old and still running, but starting to have some issues, and just had to replace the battery and as it is my only way around, I try to keep it parked as much as possible.
Money is so tight right now.
Honey is working a new job, and making less than he was at his old job and with the car repairs and high electric bills and less income, we are struggling to keep afloat from week to week.
I would love to be able to find a nice little part time job, but there is no one hiring within a reasonable driving distance.
One store is closing in our little village town.
So, I guess I will stay home, keep what little money I have in my pocket and save wear and tear on my car til spring and summer so I can make it to the walking track.
Back to my slow or in this case, NO progress.
I long for the days when I was seeing the pounds drop away week after week and feeling it in my body.
Now, I feel like I have lost.
Not weight.
But, my ability to lose has stalled for some reason,
It could be that I am not working hard enough. and add to that, the fact I am eating way too many carbs.
I tried this granola bar one day while shopping just because I was really hungry and wanted something quick.
It was Nature Valley oats and honey and NOW I am hooked.
And so that has to stop.
I have to get away from carbs and back to protein and veggies and working out.
So, as you can see, my mind tells me what I need to do, but getting my body to go along with it is another thing.
Icy here today, So, I am staying home again and away from the granola bars!!!!
Maybe I will crumble them up and use them to walk across my icy porch, lol!!!

    This is a rough time of year for a lot of people. Living in the Midwest means the only time we get sun is when it's brutally cold. My nutrition has also been lousy, but I have easy access to a gym. When you live right outside of Chicago, options are plentiful.

    Good luck and start lifting heavy stuff. Keeping your muscles engaged helps you burn more calories.

    I feel your pain - your struggle. That is being honest to the core. Thank you for sharing.
    You are not alone... Many of us feel and live this too and too many of us don't acknowledge it..
    I know you will get through this gloom of winter.
