October Goal Recap

October just flew by! Although, my goal progress wasn’t the greatest, I still got a fair bit accomplished.

Here’s the recap of October:

Lose 2lbs a week by December 31 2014–NOT ON TRACK– I finally got my scale working again and was shocked to see I had gained 8 lbs in September and the first half of October. So, the past two weeks I put the pedal to the metal and lost 7lbs. Myfitnesspal has been my lifeline in losing 7lbs in two weeks and it’s going to help push me all the way!

Put $12000 into savings by December 31 2014–NOT ON TRACK– Living on one income for 2.5 months, combined with a few unexpected large expenses, left us with some debt. This month all extra cash went into paying down the debt.

Earn an extra $12000 by December 31 2014– NOT ON TRACK– Outside of regular income, we brought in an extra $424.34 – this makes $5055.27 for the year thus far.

Start a daycare in September 2014–COMPLETE

Read a book a month by December 2014– NOT ON TRACK– I started White Girl Problems, by Babe Walker, which is a lot of fun. Unfortunately, taking 2 courses this month left me without the time to do much fun reading.

Finish the basement by August 2014 – COMPLETE

Plant a fruit/vegetable garden in spring 2014–Unsucessful
