Trying to do the right thing...


440 (+/-) calories, 40 minutes in the gym this afternoon. Once again, my kids made me go. It's been a hell of a day.

I slipped on the ice this morning when I was getting into the van. And then this jerk was SO rude to me when I was dropping my kids off. I knew the day would be rough. Thankfully, work went well, and I was in a positive state of mind.

Until I got home and checked the mailbox...

I got a letter from the IRS stating they were levying my bank account for a tax debt. Of course, it's a mess that my EX-ASSHOLE-HUSBAND got us into, but since he is rotting away in jail, who do they go after? Me. Good thing I'm already BROKE and only have had $9 in the bank.

SO I spent the next 2 hours on the phone with the IRS...

I had already promised the kids on the way home from school that we were going to the gym tonight. When I came out of my room where I'd been talking on the phone, the kids were changed and dressed and ready to go. So guess what? I got ready, too. I figured some good 'ole exercise would help clear my head. And I was right.

I am tired as HELL right now. Can't wait to sleep well and wake up in the morning to do it all over again!

I swear, I try to do the right thing. I try to be good to people, and treat people the way I want to be treated. For some reason, I just can't seem to catch a break. But just like with the weight-loss, I refuse to give up. My time HAS to be around the corner!
