Learning to focus less on dieting and more on overall health and wellness

My special gift.

Check out the new wheels.

That’s right, now Len and I don’t need to share a car because my nana has HOOKED it up!!! Unfortunately  she is quite the hazard behind the wheel so she hasn’t driven in a whole year. Her perfectly good car has been sitting in the garage waiting for some lovin’. I’m here Hyundai Sonata, cry no more. This is so awesome because clearly I’m too broke to buy a car. (Hello? I pour cereal for a living!) Len and I bought a car to share about 1.5 years ago. It worked out perfectly while I was in school because everything was in walking/bus distance. Now that I’m searching for a job, I need the freedom to look outside Boston for more opportunities. Santa Nana really helped a sister out and I’m SO grateful.

In other news,  I cannot for the life of me get motivated to work out. The heat has been really putting a damper on my workouts so I’ve been procrastinating all day. My triathlon is in less that 5 weeks (!!!!!!) and I have SO much work to do. Swimming doesn’t sound like a terrible option but unless I hit the pool before six I must share lanes. Who enjoys that? Not this bird. Is a lane even big enough for two grown swimmers. Last time I shared a lane this man had some sort of OCD ritual he had to do at the end of the pool. It made for some awkward moments.

I’m off to get the car washed and detailed. Right now it smells like moth balls and geezers.

  5. GORGEOUS!! That’s so sweet of you Nana. My very first car had been my Grandma’s. An old 83 Buick Skyhawk with roll down windows! I had only driven it twice before our trip home from NJ to Michigan!

    Enjoy the car and the freedom!
