School starts on Monday! And I have another full schedule which means I might not be around here much for the semester. I am taking 3 art classes, Painting, Life Drawing, and Expressive drawing, and Conservation of Natural Resources. I am excited to start school again because it will mean that I will be moving more.
Right now I think I am stuck on a plateau. Mainly because I am not putting as much into as I have been. I went to a Weight Watchers meeting last night and bought a calculator so I could start tracking again. Now I just need to do it. I will do it as soon as I finish this blog post.
I went running two days ago, today is another running day but I am going to wait until tomorrow when hubby has the day off and I can do it in the morning and I will *hopefully* be off my monthly, which really hasnt been as bad as usually but it still makes me unmotivated and mopey.
Having not hit the 100 pound mark has made me a little depressed as I am about 3-4 pounds away depending on the day. I want to hit that mark but maybe I am not ready emotionally yet. I think that is it, every time I hit a plateau I feel like I am using the time to adjust mentally and emotionally.
I have had the book The Total Money Makeover by Dave Ramsey recommended to me several times the last couple of months because of the way my husband and I live, without credit cards and car loans, and because we want to buy a house. So I checked it out from the library and it has been sitting next to me for about 5 weeks. I finally picked it up yesterday, after yet another recommendation, and began reading. I covered about 1/3 of the book and got to the first baby step which is to take control of your budget and save $500 fast, within the next month. So I have sat down and budgeted our next paycheck and put aside a little for the saving.
This process reminds me of Weight Watchers, your first goal is to hit your 5% and then your 10% and then 25 pounds, then 50 pounds and it just turns into a snowball and keeps going. I feel comfortable with his makeover so I am going to give it as much energy and time as I have my weight journey and it will pay off.
