I’m at least being consistent. Three no spend days again. IF my AC hadn’t gone out last Monday, I wouldn’t have spent that money on fans. $80 worth of fans (and I only bought 2!) in order to keep my bedroom cool at night and to keep my cat less miserable. And if you follow me on twitter, you’ll have seen that my AC was out due to a snake crawling in there and knocking out connections before dying. I went through multiple reactions of feeling bad that the snake died, annoyed that he knocked out the connections before dying, and then the reaction of “well, it got what it deserved because it crawled in there itself.”
In other news, we’re thinking of living in this house for another year. Misery I know but if it will help us get a little ahead on debt, it might be worth it. I’m going to think about it for another few weeks and we’re going to talk about it one more time (well, he’s going to think about it too) before any solid plans are formed. It’s a tough choice-get ahead, or live in this house. One more year would be all I could do though-before we make plans to have a family I want to be in a better rental place. I’m also thinking of holding off of doing the self-hosted blog thing. I don’t want to but again, if it makes saving and debt payoff easier, I might have to. And yes, it’s my money but a lot of the debt is mine. I’ve also been thinking of trying to find a part-time job or side hustle. Easier said than done. I don’t want to work after work mainly because I tend to work from home quite a few times. But a few hours on the weekend might not be so bad. However, I’d still have to find work-I don’t like fast food and that’s really all that is open around here.
I weigh and measure myself today. We are starting on month 2-I still love this program and feel stronger each time a work out is done. I still love this program. After month 2, we’re going to do the recovery week again and move back into month 1. We don’t want to just quit working out after it’s done. Thought about doing p90x but he doesn’t like that program that much and I’d rather just do this one. I highly recommend it to everyone.
