Newness all around

What a week this has been… Last night for the very first time bought myself a BRAND NEW car! My old car was on its last legs, and I’ve been on the hunt for a car for the past couple of months. Originally, I was convinced that I didn’t want to spend more than $10,000 and that it was going to be a used car. Well, it turns out the used car market is awful right now and that wasn’t even a remote possibility money-wise if I wanted something that wasn’t already out of warranty with a ton of miles on it. After much debate, it became obvious that I could get something brand new for not much more than I’d be paying for one of the used cars, so I upped my budget a tad.

D and I headed over to the Mazda dealership after work and we looked at a few different ones, but in the end I fell in love with a silver Mazda 3 and it was a done deal. We negotiated the price down a little bit and traded in my car, and as of tomorrow afternoon, I will be driving it! Every other car I’ve ever had has been used and was nothing that made me excited. In fact, I have grown to really dislike driving. I think this car might actually do the impossible and get me to like driving at least the tiniest little bit 🙂

Luckily, none of this excitement has thrown me off my fitness plan for the week. Wednesday after my lunch workout, my stomach started to feel a little upset, so I took it easy for the rest of the day. My heartrate had climbed higher than I would have liked during that lunchtime workout, possibly due to a combination of lack of sleep the night before, and pushing too hard while I was there.

Thursday, everything seemed to be back to normal and today, I think I may be taking a rest day. I was scheduled to do a workout in the morning, but last night’s sleep was the WORST one of the week. I woke up at 3:30 and didn’t get back to sleep until 6! So, a morning workout wasn’t exactly in the cards.

No worries though. It’s Friday and with tomorrow being wide open except for picking up my new car, I’m sure I’ll be able to get in a very quality workout with D in the morning. Tomorrow will also be the first weigh-in since I started making progress on the project so I’m excited to see what the result will be.

Have a great Friday, anyone out there who might be reading!
