So last night as I was driving home from seeing my sister, my car started acting funny. The seat belt light wouldn’t go off, all the lights on the dash lit up and my radio cut off. My mom and boyfriend said it was probably my battery.
I woke up this morning and first thing I did was try to make myself some oatmeal. BUT the MICROWAVE wasn’t working. So I couldn’t eat breakfast and I was hungry. So then I threw on a raggedy house dress and didn’t do my hair and drove to WalMart to get my car fixed.
I was so stressed about the price of a new battery, plus I needed a oil change too, and with that cost, plus last months car maintenance cost, I spent almost $550 on my car in 2 months. ALL of that went on a credit card. I feel like I can’t take any steps forward and I am taking HUGE steps backwards financially.
Anyway, I was so stressed and hungry that I went inside WalMart to the bakery section and bought: carrot cake, white cake, banana pudding and doritos. While I waited for my car to be fixed I ate HALF of ALL OF THAT junk food. Came to 1500 calories. I ate 1500 calories in 15 minutes. That’s 100 calories a minute.
Of course that just made me even MORE stressed. I threw the other half of the food in the garbage.
My car is fixed now. I drove to the mall to walk off some of what I ate. I burned almost 200 calories at the mall window shopping in every store. Who knew that Dillards sells Louis Vuitton and Coach?
Anyway, I am in the hole calorically and I still don’t have a fixed microwave. My landlord said she would replace ours soon.
I’m having salad for dinner.
