I haven't been to the gym in a week. But I am planning on trying to go tonight for a short session. Then a hard session tomorrow morning. After that it will be all morning workouts. Just need to get back on track, and even with me tracking my calories and food it's tough.

I was used to going 3 to 6 days a week. Now I don't know how often I will be in the gym. I am working on trying to get things done the right way. That includes getting Nikki's car fixed. I don't have the money to buy a new motor, so I have to find a way to make a deal with the mechanic. And I want to join a gym over in Bend or Redmond that has a daycare, and possibly does CrossFit.

Things are getting more and more hectic. I have so much to do here and I do all I can to get everything done, but it never gets done. Because so much lands on my shoulders and Nikki's shoulders. Since her mom left, she up and left everything to us and it kills us all the time. We try to keep up with the demands of what happens here, but we can't do it all the time.

I try to make sure I get the yardwork done. Things of that nature are what I care about getting done. But I can't always keep up with everything. I try and it gets hard. But I have to push on and show that I can do this and not break under all the pressure.

Well I went and talked to the mechanic today again. And he told me it was pointless to just replace the one piston and all else. He would just rather replace the whole motor. I can understand that. It makes more sense.

The problem is my income. I would have to make payments. He would have to buy the motor and I would pay him for the motor and labor in payments. It's a difficult situation. This is the first step towards our freedom from here.

It could cost upwards of 2000 or more to do what needs done. I am prepared to pay it, but it would have to be in payments and not all at once. If I had the money I would pay it all, but that isn't the case at all. And the work market here is way too slow for me. Can't find decent work, even if you constantly talk to the people that you gave applications to. So it's a whole different thing. I hope we get the car fixed and get out of here soon.

Well I dropped off a note to the mechanic today to release the car and have it looked at. It needs so much work done, and I have no idea of where to start. But I did it so we can get it fixed, and so we can FINALLY move from here. Get a life and start all over again.

These are the important things. People think that what we view as important isn't, and they are wrong. This has been a priority for a long time. And it's just now getting done, that is sad and not acceptable.  I have tried and tried to get the original mechanic to fix it, but he is an ass and refused to do anymore work. Even after I paid him close to 3,000 for all the work he did.

Now we are working on finding a place and maybe even getting a gym membership. But the gym has to have a daycare. And group classes are a bonus. We are trying to get out of here before the end of the year. Let's hope it works

Well the Monday workout is complete. I did a circuit workout today with a 60 second break between rounds. Weigh in was done this morning, and I weighed in at 157.8. So I am maintaining my weight and working on the conditioning aspect of everything now.

Working out helps me to relieve my stress and leave my problems in a pool of sweat at the gym. I am just so glad that I have a gym here to work out in. If I didn't I would still be a time bomb exploding all the time. I am trying to focus on so many things.

Getting a place, working, and all kinds of other things. I have several other issues to contend with. But they will be dealt with in time and in a way that only I  can deal with them.
