Lets see how I did this month:
Financial Goals: I would like to see if we can live off of Todd’s income this month so that we can pay off Todd’s vehicle by mid-November. Todd gets paid 5 times in October, but we are going out of state for the first weekend of October for a 3-day weekend. Can we save $2150?
We failed at this! Miserably!
We paid off $1527 toward Todd's vehicle. We were off by $623.
I have a post listing the reasons (excuses) why we failed that will be posted a little later.
Personal Goals: I would like to finally get the fireproof safe organized with all of our paperwork. I keep adding to the stack of paperwork that needs filed, but none of it is going into the safe for some reason! Right now, the pile is daunting.
I finished the fireproof safe yesterday at 5:30!
Mind you, this does not include the paperwork that is on my desk and has been piled up on my desk for over a year. I will try to get to that soon. But this was all of the paperwork from our closet that has been accumulating.
This is the before picture:
Sorry, no after picture taken. It is just like this, but no paperwork piled up!
Weight Goals: I would like to lose 10 lbs this month. Instead of my drastic measures I usually do (drinking raw shakes every meal for a week,) I would like to try to do it with eating smaller portions, healthier food, drinking more water and exercising regularly.
Another fail. I lost 6 lbs the first week, and nothing since. I am not doing well with my portions at all, but I am definitely going to work on it in November! I have an app that will help me keep track of my calories and weight. I will be trying to eat only 1200 calories during the week while I'm at work. We will see how I will do with that!
So, as you can see, I only got 1 out of 3 goals complete this month.
Oh well. There's always next month, right?
