determined not to fall back into old habitsRight now, money is tight, as we get accustomed to paying rent and utility bills. I put a little away in savings each pay period, and when I mean little, I mean $20 to each savings account. It helps, every little bit does. More than ever I don't want to fall into the cycle of using credit to pay for life's necessities to have extra cash on hand - but I see why and how many people do that. I know poor is a relative term but this sure isn't fun. Oh well.
Nick and I decided to wait another year to get married. We got excited and would love to have it this year - but the smart thing, from every angle, whether it be financially or time-wise, is to wait. So October 2007 will be our time. I am relieved actually. I was getting a bit nervous anyway, wasn't sure if we'd be able to do it, and even if we could, why strap ourselves? Well, I'm off to work out - this goal is proving to be much more difficult than my financial goals ever were. I am still motivated and working out 5-6 days a week, and when I say I am being good, I am being GOOD. Healthy meals all the way, eating small portions, every couple hours - I am following all the rules. Not to mention I've drastically cut down on soda, almost to the point of elmination. But I've only lost 3 pounds. I know better than anyone not to base your progress by the numbers on the scale, and I also know slow weight loss is the best, but STILL. It would be nice! Grrr. :)
