Slow Going (Weight Loss)

April 23rd, 2006 at 12:05 pm

I lost another pound towards my Weight Loss Goal. I can't remember it being so hard to lose weight. Use to be that I could drop a few lbs just by thinking about it.

I guess those days are gone. I still haven't sacrificed much yet, so I guess I should be happy that I'm losing at all.

I've lost 7 of my 20 lb Goal.....by end of June. I'd better get serious, as May is just around the corner.

Paid In Full

April 22nd, 2006 at 02:33 pm

I received a bonus in my payckeck which will allow me to pay off one of my CC in full.

This will eliminate approximately 1/3 of my credit card debt.

Feels good to pay down my debt!!

BOGO groceries

April 21st, 2006 at 01:11 pm

Had to make a dash into the grocery store to buy some chicken breasts and a few side items for a family cookout. I was surprised to find that the chicken I needed was BOGO free. Since I was already buying the item and I got another free, I'll consider it as a savings.

Mad dashes usually end up costing me money. By keeping my blinders on and only buying my intended purchase, I consider myself one up on the grocery store!!

Slow progress....but progress.

$30 Rebate

April 8th, 2006 at 11:03 am

I received a $30.00 rebate for my computer printer. It took several weeks, but it finally came. I was afraid I missed some of the details of the rebate.

I did this rebate myself (usually my more experienced wife does the rebates).

Three cheers for rebates!

Blessed to be a Blessing

April 7th, 2006 at 12:29 am

My adult daughter called and said she's on her way to visit (to FL from TX)! Yeah.
A friend had a fly for free plane pass that was to expire if not used, and offered to her if she could use it.
Normally, the timing for her and us would have been challenging...but this was perfect.
Friend was blessed with opportunity to share with my daughter, who in turn blesssed us with her visit. And it was all for free!

Weekly Summary

April 3rd, 2006 at 04:26 pm

I found myself extremely busy this week. In fact, I was unable to keep up with my daily entries to my journal.

For that reason, I'll have to estimate my savings for the week as $18.00. This amount is from monies saved from my Weight loss goal. I will schedule an out-of-cycle CC payment of $18.00 against my highest CC balance for next week.

My weight loss goal for losing 20 lbs has stalled at 5 lbs (no change for this week). I am still at 25% if my Goal.

That gives me some degree of concern, but I will not panic.

I will commit to more disciplined journal entries for next week, plus focus on my weight loss goal.
