It is a new day

Image
That is one really good thing about this life. There is always a chance to start over. Today is that day for me. It all starts anew today. My plan for today is as follows:

Banana with almond butter before Crossfit
Crossfit
Shower
Breakfast
Paper writing
Vacuum house
Walk dogs
Party this evening
Bed

Tomorrow, wash, rinse, repeat.

I have a few things that need to get done this weekend, so I will work on them today. Tonight is a surprise party for a friend, so that should be fun. Oh yeah, need to buy a present. That's about it. Hopefully it will be warm so I can spend some time in the pool. Also, need to do a little cleaning around here, this desk is a disaster. Other than that, just taking it easy.

So one step at a time.

Time to rein all things in

The nightmare that was my last job is now officially over. I got my first paycheck at my new job. This is my first paycheck in 3 months. It felt good to be able to sit and pay my bills. I have gotten behind on one and I need to catch up. What I have decided to do though is put myself on a money diet. For the next few months I am not spending anything except what I absolutely have to. We have plenty of money, we make plenty of money, we just spend too freely. Once before I completely turned it around. I turned it around enough to buy this house. I can do it again and I am going to. The financial goals are to get the three credit cards paid off - that should not take long - get my car paid off, and start putting an extra payment towards the mortgage. It is all possible, I just need to stop the indiscriminate spending. I see something and I buy it. Enough. The only money I'm allowed to spend is for Crossfit every month. That is it.

In other news. I have got to get control of myself…

Another new start

Last week was not that bad. I have to let it go and move on. That started today with a new week. I did pretty good today. In spite of being really tired last night, I made myself breakfast and lunch. I went to Crossfit this morning. When I got to school at 7 am, I wasn't hungry. I ate a banana and moved on. At my break at 10 am I was definitely hungry. I did not want to eat my breakfast though, so I ate my lunch - cheese sticks wrapped in ham delish!!! Came home and jumped in the pool. Had some poke and potato chips. Waiting for dinner of pot roast and veggies. Yum. Hope to have some for lunch tomorrow too.

The good news is that I have stopped the upward progression of the scale. For the last 3 weeks it has been at exactly the same weight. That is a good thing. I need to get in moving in the downward direction, but not going up is good.

That's all I have to say. I'm tired and want to eat dinner.
