Week 17 and it’s gonna be….

Sorry…as a product of the 90’s I can’t NOT make this joke.

General Health

Man…when I’m down, I am DOWN. Week 17’s WW mantra was to be kind to yourself and treat yourself as you would a friend on the same journey. I’m hard on myself. I am mad when I don’t accomplish my goals and even more mad when it’s because I am getting in my own way.

I DONATED BLOOD ON WEDNESDAY. So I’ve stayed on track with that side goal holla. I always feel better doing things that are for the greater good even though I hate needles. I was stabbed a total of 6 times last week between birth control, allergy shots, and blood donation.

My diet was a battle as we managed to get 4 boxes of Insomnia Cookies for Administrative Professionals Day (aka my bosses like me more than your bosses like you day) and I have very little control around baked goods. I also ate a LOT of barbecue so I bet weigh in is going to be rough.

Handling this new StepBet well still. 2 weeks down, 4 more to go!

GYM July 2016 – June 2017: 82(as of 4/28) /120 

Well…..at this point I would have to go to the gym every day between now and July 1 so I think I may have to shift this from July 2016 – August 2017 :( I’m going to keep going and keep trucking to do the best I can but it’s not looking great.

Be Creative
I’ve been knitting AND journaling again. I always get to work early so I’ve just been jotting a few lines down before work hubbub starts. It feels good to try.

I’m still reading “The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck” by Mark Manson and loving it.

I’ve also taken to listening to podcasts instead of music at work and I’m finding it helpful. Personal finance, comedy, and personal growth seem to be my podcast genres.

Financial Goals

Pay Down Some Mortgage
I threw $61.40 in there just to get myself up to an even $700 by the end of April.

Frugal AF
Man, I’m just trying. I slip up here and there on food but at least they’re small. I need to find new breakfast options as I am starting to loathe oatmeal (again) and have fallen prey to the breakfast buffet downstairs because bacon. My budget gets blown one bacon at a time.

I’ve been listening to some personal finance podcasts and find them helpful:

Bad with Money with Gaby Dunn

Radical Personal Finance with Joshua Sheats

Mortgage: $700/$1,000

$300 by the end of June? I hope I can make that work in 2 months!!

Professional Goals

Continuing Education Credits for Health License
I have one more free training with our insurance company and I have not been doing my license stuff. I told you when I’m down I’m DOWN

Learning About Annuities
We’re not getting far with these and it’s a little annoying.
