November Expense Tracking FAIL

Another month, another spend tracking fail. I started doing so well, I tracked everything I spent for the first half of the month. Then B started paying for some things, groceries, dinners out, random stuff and I realized what’s the point of my tracking if I don’t track B’s? Then I just sort of gave up.

Going to try again in December with B on board. Maybe by January, I’ll get it right.

The exercise and diet was also a bust. I got sick and didn’t feel well, stupid winter colds. So I just let myself rest and take a break. I don’t think I’m too far off track, but most likely will not make my weight loss goal this month.

I’m keeping my goals for the end of the year. I also have 9 Hot Yoga classes to finish before the end of the year, they are no longer doing roll-over when you purchase a new package and this annoys me to no end. Enough that once I finish this package I will not return there. They used to be so nice and accommodating. I vow to use all classes, then good-bye Hot Yoga, it’s been a nice ride. On to BalletCore and Zumba!

November 2012 Goals

Pleased to report that I got up this morning and ran on the treadmill, slightly ashamed to admit it was only for 1 mile, ha! Small victories.

I really struggle with tracking all expenses, I start with the best of intentions, then falter after a couple days. I am happy to write that this month, so far, I have tracked all expenses, yay!

Here are my goals for this month:

1. Track all expenses
2. Lower weight to 144.5, this might be a stretch, as it will mean losing 5#, yikes!
3. Zumba 4x – this is a treat, I so enjoy these classes and they burn a ton of calories.
4. Run 12x – not sure how many miles? Trying to come up with a mileage goal for next year, something between 500-1000? Gotta narrow that down to something where I feel accomplished yet not overwhelmed.
5. Yoga 5x – this is tough I have 11 classes to use before the end of the year. I have such a love/hate relationship with these classes.
6. Exercise in the a.m. before work 4x.

Working on my goal list for next year. Going to try to be more accountable both financially and physically. I even have a spiritual goal to read the Bible daily, one that’s been on my list for a long time. Originally it was to read the entire Bible in one year, but I’m not sure if that’s doable. Now if I at least commit to daily reading, I will eventually accomplish the goal of reading the entire Bible, even if it takes me 5 years. I would rather go slow and do extra research than blitz through it without understanding, to just be able to say I read it.
