Do it anyway...

It was almost 2am before I left work tonight.  Someone called in sick which meant more tables to serve and longer hours.    I realized I hadn't completed my planks, push-ups and jumping jack for the day.  I really wasn't in the mood to do it all especially after working for almost ten hours!!    But something inside me said "Come one Joy!!  It will take less then 5 mins and then you will be done so Just get it over with!"  So I did at 4am in the morning did my 70 jumping jacks, 14 push ups and 60 sec plank.  It really wasn't that hard, sometimes you just have to do it anyway.   
Weekly Workouts
Tuesday- Elliptical (30 mins)  Stationary Bike ( 15 mins) Push ups (100)
Wednesday- Push ups (185)
Friday-  Elliptical (30 mins)  Weights ( glutes, triceps and abs)
Sunday- 90 Jumping Jacks, 12 push-ups and 1 min. plank
Rob and I have to send our car to car heaven :(   We thought we had another six months so we could pay off some debts but no such luck.   We took it into the shop yesterday thinking we could put a few hundred dollars into  it  to last the six months  but has gotten so rusty that our friend/mechanic handed over the keys and said " it's time to buy a new car there is nothing left I can do for you."   Our poor silver bullet...   I will always remember you for the good times, road trips, camping trips, driving us to work, to the gym and so much more!    
I am not looking forward to car payments, but we our pretty excited to buy a brand new car!    I was upset at first today about the extra  cost to our budget but in the end we have been good with our finances.   It is just a little setback and a bit of an adjustment to our budget.    
That's enough about that!!  I have been thinking lately that I would like to do more research on eating healthy  and exercise and posting my findings on my blog.  I believe this could not only help with my weigh loss but help with gaining some extra knowledge.   I will keep you posted on that in the next week or so.  
First I have to research what kind of car we have to get lol?  The joys of being an adult!! 
How is your week going???  Is their any websites you use for learning how to eat healthy?

March Goals

February is behind us, thank gawd it was a tough month!   March is a new month to start new goals.  Not only is it my birthday month but it is the start of spring and longer days, yahoo!  Jump for joy!  Can you tell I am excited for summer???   
 I was looking at pinterest a couple of weeks ago and I stumbled across my next fitness challenge:
It should be an interesting challenge seems easy at first but once you get to the end of the month Yikes!!
Since I have a 5K race at the end of May.  I will be starting a jogging program in March  (I also found this on pinterest)  
As for my eating plan I am still trying to figure it out but I have decided not to eat after 11pm for the month of March.    It may sound late to you but most days I don't even finish work till 1am.   
p.s   I was able to conquer the 1000 push-ups challenge and what awesome feeling it was to complete. 
What are your goals for the month of March?
