I just had to share with you all. I had a great NSV today.
My new car... my 2009 Jeep Patriot that should NOT be having any problems, had problems. The roof leaks, through my map light. Long story, shorten, I had to bring it in for service to my local Jeep dealership. Now with the economic downturn of last year, the dealership I bought it from was no longer in the Jeep business, so I had to go to a different one.
So while I am checking my car in with the service department, I asked the kind individual how long it would take, he said that it would be a few hours. Seesh! I didn't want to waste it just sitting there in the waiting room reading the book I brought. So I said to myself, self, the gym is a little over a half a mile walk from the dealership, why not go get a workout in?
And that is exactly what I did. I walked the 0.7 miles to the gym, had a good hour and 20 minute workout, did a mix of cardio and some weight training (cuz weights are for girls!). I didn't even really look at the time when the dealership called and said my car was ready. So then it was a quick walk back to the dealership and I was on my way. All in all it was that errand was less than 2 hours. And in that 2 hours, I feel like I got so much accomplished since I didn't sit on my duff and read, instead I went to the gym and got a fantastic workout in.
I was super proud of myself for this non-scale victory. I can see that these changes are not temporary, but they are lifetime changes.
I am hopefully going to be weighing in tomorrow, not sure how it's going to go, it's tough to get a rough estimate when I am working the night shift the night before a weigh in. But DBF is taking me to Rhode Island this weekend and I really just don't have the time at any other point this week. I will already be two days late due to my crazy work schedule. Oh well, I hope to be back to a somewhat normal schedule for next week!
