Soooo in July I took on a personal challenge of The Hermiting. I focused this month of 5 goals:
1. Saving money
3. Weight Loss
Here is my recap:
1. Saving Money
So I spent $966 through my bank account in July. Since I didn’t have to pay rent (paid in advance when I had more money) this isn’t exactly the best.
I spent the most on auto/transportation and food/drink. I had to drive a bit more this month and the tanks of gas added up. Food and drink was my second-highest spender which is common.
I was able to get my student loan payments lowered considerably! I have already paid for August…but depending on what my paychecks look like, I may pay again.
I SIGNED THE LEASE AND GOT MY KEYS TODAY!!!!!!!!!!
Last night one of my besties came up and we packed my back room and half of my living room. Now that I have the keys and movers are schedule for August 13th, I can transfer all of my utilities, lower my comcast bill, and start moving small stuff so the movers won’t take so long. Fuck yeah.
3. Weight Loss
I am still around 5lbs away from goal and it has gotten really discouraging. I haven’t dipped below 138 al lmonth and my goal is 135. Starting to wonder if I should just make it 140 because I’m happy at this weight and in order to get to 135 I really have to like…stop eating everything I love. I’ll talk to my dude tomorrow.
I did finally go through my surveys and I really need to meet with my adviser to handle business. But I worked on it!
So I think I did pretty good! I also now know where my biggest spending areas are and I totally know what I need to do keep that up.
I think August will be another month of hermiting. It’s too hot to go out and I know that I will want to do everything in the fall. If I take another hot shitty month to work on me and what I need to do, I will be good for the future. FUCK YEAH!
