February is almost over, and the gyms are empty! If you’ve fallen off the New Year’s resolution bandwagon, it’s time to revisit those goals!
Hi Rachel! Our goal is to have our van paid off by January 1st! We are on target to do this!! Yipee!!
Hi Rachel! My word for the year is Motivation! Yes, I’m still tackling some of those goals that I’d hoped to be motivated to tackle, BUT I’m not making the progress on credit card debt relief like I’d hoped. That was actually my only resolution, so-to-speak.
We’re also having a baby this year. And working on sticking to our budget the rest of the year.
Our goal was to get our grocery budget down from $650/m to $400/m (family of 4). So far it’s working, I just have to cook a lot more from scratch and we go out to eat less.n
We have 8 children, 16 to 2, and have made some New Year’s financial goals that seem totally impossible. We have surpassed these goals so far in a way that we know it is only God’s grace.
Oops, I hit send too soon. One goal has been to pay off two of our credit cards. By the end of this month, all 5 will be totally paid off.
And it is only February!!!!!!! Woo Hoo!!!!!
One of my goals is to lose wait. I only need to lose 25 pounds and I hope to do it before my oldest son gets married on May 29th but I have only lost 5 pounds. Our financial goals are to have a fully funded emergency fund. And now that our oldest is also graduating from college we will have more money to save.
Hey, Angela! I’m a health/fitness accountability coach, and I’d like to help you with your weight loss goals. If you’re interested, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Three goals: Take control of my health, pay off the last loan standing between me and debt free except the house, and (my dearest goal) to learn new and useful things. So far, I’ve gone from a person who drinks only soda to a person who drinks only water and occasionally orange juice. Six weeks, no soda! I’ve joined Weight Watchers and lost 15 pounds. I’ve reduced my debt outside the house from 17,000 to 12,000, thanks mostly to a tax refund. Most importantly I’ve had my first sewing lesson and made 3 projects. I’ve apprenticed with a local butcher to learn to butcher my own hogs. (No more paying someone $150 per hog to do it for me.) We have learned how to tap our maple trees and make homemade maple syrup. The syrup project started out in the learn something new category, but it turns out that it will help with the financial goals as well. Our local co-op will pay $128 a gallon for traditional wood fired maple syrup. (The stuff you buy in stores is made by reverse osmosis and tastes nothing like the rich, dark syrup using the old fashioned evaporation method.) Oh – and this week, inspired by the maple syrup project, I’m going to learn to make waffles. 🙂 Then we’ll see what’s next!
