Where I've Been and Why I'm Back...Sorta

Saturday, June 01, 2013

I just wanted to post a quick blog to let y'all know where I've been! Reiko and I started our own automotive shop!! I've been spending most of my days there, putting my BA in Communication to use by handling all the marketing for the shop! We've been open about a month and a half and things are going well! We've hit budget almost every day which is comforting and we're hoping once our sign is up, we're still waiting on our permit, business will pick up.

For those of you in the San Antonio area, especially North side, remember Braun Road Automotive for all your auto care needs. Reiko has been a mechanic for almost 20 years and is ASE certified. She's also honest and trust-worthy...and I'm not just saying that cause she's my wife lol You can find us on Facebook, Twitter, and Foursquare. We're located on Braun at the corner of FM 1560 at 10934 Braun Rd.

So of course I haven't been working out and my eating has been less than stellar! The only thing that has kept me from gaining weight has been being at the shop all day. I do a lot of walking and standing, but I know that's not enough. I'm committed to getting back on track and trying to find a schedule that works for me.

I can only take things one day at a time, so today I put in 30 minutes on the elliptical and made smart eating choices. I also pledged to track 500-1000 fitness minutes on the SA team, so that's going to be my goal. I want to get back in the habit of regular exercise and eating right. I can't promise I'll be here every, single day, but I can promise that I will try. That I will be here at least 4 days a week!!

    Wow, that is a huge undertaking! I don't live on that side of town, but have lots of friends who do and will recommend your shop.

    I am impressed that you're making time to work out--will hopefully relieve some of your work stressors. Good luck with that, and sure good to hear from you!

    Anytime you blog it makes me smile. By the way, if anyone is interested, I can give a recommendation as to Braun Automotives. I send family and friends there and no one leaves unhappy. Best of luck to you and Reiko and I'm so happy to see your beautiful face gracing Spark today! emoticon
