July Goal Recap

It’s funny, my husband has been home all summer and somehow, I seem to have less time than when he’s at work :S Go figure!

As a result, this blog and my goals have been suffering – but time to regroup and reprioritize!

So here goes:

Lose 2lbs a week by December 31 2014–NOT ON TRACK– July was absolutely terrible. I actually gained 6.3 lbs in July :S Oh man! This has been a real eye opener, and I’ve already started making big changes this month. After this weigh-in, I’ve only lost 3.7 lbs for the year 🙁

Put $12000 into savings by December 31 2014–NOT ON TRACK– My maternity benefits ran out at the end of June, which means I’m not bringing in anything substantial yet. This means absolutely no savings since we are living paycheck to paycheck now.

Earn an extra $12000 by December 31 2014– NOT ON TRACK– Outside of regular income, we brought in an extra $456.58 – this makes $4437.52 for the year thus far.

Start a daycare in September 2014–ON TRACK– All is a go – just need the kids!

Read a book a month by December 2014– NOT ON TRACK– I’m still loving The Birth House by Ami McKay. It’s absolutely amazing, but time hasn’t afforded me much reading enjoyment.

Finish the basement by August 2014 – COMPLETE

Plant a fruit/vegetable garden in spring 2014–NOT ON TRACK– Garden looks like a no go this year 🙁

I’m pretty disappointed with the month as a whole and I’m absolutely amazed at how quickly it flew by.  The dog days of summer really trapped me in and I slacked big time.  Now it’s time to put on my big girl pants and get to work!  August will be a better month!
