What 's a girl to do?

So I am in a slump right now. I have no motivation at all to work out. I tell myself that I am going to wake up and go before work but then the alarm goes off and I change the time so I can sleep longer. Then I tell myself that I will go after I get off and it does not always happen. Tonight I did bust out the ole wii fit. I actually had to replace the batteries because we have not used it in so long. I worked up a little bit of a sweat but I am not sure if it was because I was working hard or if it was just hot in the house. Maybe tomorrow I will change my act and get up early. We will see. But on a better note I have lost 7.9 pounds in 5 weeks so I must be doing something right. I am training to do a 10k later this summer. Which will be super fun. It is my first 10k and I am a little bit frightened. But slow and steady wins the race right.
Anyone have any good healthy summer recipes? I am sick of the same old stuff that I am always making. I want to try and mix it up somehow. Let me know if any of you have any easy, healthy go to meals, or even snacks. I got an email for the most dangerous chocolate cake recipe. It is as follows...
The most dangerous cake recipe

4 tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
1 egg
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)
a small splash of vanilla extract
1 large coffee mug

Add dry ingredients to mug, and mix well.. Add the egg and mix thoroughly.
Pour in the milk and oil and mix well. Add the chocolate chips (if using) and
vanilla extract, and mix again.

Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts (high).
The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don't be alarmed!
Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired.
EAT! (this can serve 2 if you want to feel slightly more virtuous)..

And why is this the most dangerous cake recipe in the world?

Because now we are all only 5 minutes away from chocolate cake at any time
of the day or night!

Anyone that know of weight watchers knows that there is a point system to everything that you eat. I get 27 points in a day. This cake would be 23 points. That is almost all my points for the day. I guess if devided it with some people it would get better but I am not sure how much it makes and the pieces could get pretty small. But if there are any of you out there that are blessed with beautiful bodies that can eat what ever they want without gaining a pound or if you just don't care, try this cake and let me know how it is! Happy eating!

Stupid Murdock Chevrolet

So I am very upset with Murdock Chevrolet at this point. When we first got the car and test drove it Kellan said that it pulled to the left. Then we went in and signed the papers for the car and forgot to put that to be fixed as part of the deal for getting the car. The drivers side speaker was also out so they had to order a new radio to see if that would fix the problem. When I took the car in to get the radio installed, which by the way was like a week later, I mentioned to them that the car was still pulling to the left and to check it out. So they fixed the radio and said that the alignment was off. But it would be like $90 to do an alignment. We declined at the time thinking that it would not be that bad. Well 4 months later the cd player quits working and the drivers side tire is almost bald. So I take it back into Murdock to get the radio fixed again and come to find out they no longer make the radio for a 2005 and that we will always get a refurbished one. Kellan has me give his number to the guy so that he can talk to them about the tire and they say that since it was not part of the original deal that it was our problem. The guy that sold us the car said that he does not remember the situation and the service guy says that we could have hit a pothole right out of the dealership on the day that we bought it and so it could have been our fault. He also informed us that the tires were not the right size for the car and that we would not need 1 but 4 new tires. But they are willing to work with us by giving us the tires at cost and doing a free balance but we would still have to pay for the alignment. Heck No. If they are willing to do that it says to me that they realize that it was their fault but they are going to do all they can to get around it. So I guess that I will take my business else where and get the tires done right. Sorry this is so long but I had to vent my frustrations of the whole situation. I tried to go to the gym tonight and I think that this was in the back of my mind just festering so I did not get in as good of a workout as I had anticipated. So again I say stupid Murdock Chevrolet. I guess that is what I get for buying a used car.
