Car stunt of the year (so far)

Check this out. I personally find it cool when people take crap-ass cars and do stupid things with them. This is one of them. Made me laugh out loud.. loved it.

Gaining weight

Over the past few weeks I've put on a few pounds (about 4). Not good. The reason I'm gaining weight is basically because my job is stressing me out something fierce and I eat to calm my nerves - and I've been eating nothing but crap.. mostly chocolate. All junk. This has to stop.

It's okay to have a candy bar every now and then, it won't kill you. When you start having a candy bar every day (sometimes two or three,) that's when it's a bit out of control. I have to make a conscious effort to stop eating chocolate and sweets. Unfortunately there's a vending machine less than 15 feet from my cubicle. Not good. Sometimes it's really hard to say no to that machine when your day is full of nothing but stress (and that's every day where I werk).

I've started doing a little overtime on the treadmill, and it's working. I feel better and my stomach is starting to flatten up. There's still a lil' ways to go.. but as long as I stay on track, the pounds should drop off fast.

Plan F

Plan A: Pay all the bills, get back to zero (as I've mentioned a million times before), move to southern Connecticut.

Didn't work. Reason: Had to buy a new vehicle. Old one crapped out. Back in debt again.

Plan B: Pay just the credit card off, figure out something later.

This won't work either.. it's not a plan, really. More like staying in a rut.

Plan F: Save together some money and move somewhere else, start over. "F" is for fuggit.

After a discussion with a friend last night I came to realize that..

a) We all got bills and trying to get out of them is a futile attempt, because once you pay one off there's another right around the @*&#% corner.

b) Happiness is more important than money. At present, the happiness factor is low on the scale - that needs to change.

c) I've said it before, I'll say it again.. I really want to get out of here. After much thought, I don't believe "there" (my destination) will be another "here".

Time to execution of Plan F: Indeterminate, but I'll let you know. 😉
