October goal checkin

So my brilliant idea to get up an hour early 3 days a week to get more stuff done? Huh. A 50 per cent pass rate is a pass, right? It was good when I managed it. Not so good otherwise, like post-Metallica, in the throes of a sudden and random spring bug, or just general fatigue that kept me in bed.

Sadly, I lost my other October financial info, so my plan to track both mine and T’s accounts like a bounty hunter was derailed. But! I did keep careful track of my savings – I loftily aimed for 50 per cent and managed a respectable 44 per cent.

Also, I hit my big goal of $10k in the bank. Woooo!

I really need to keep better track of my cooking. I can’t even remember what we ate three days ago, but I do recall whipping up (throwing together) a rather tasty baked potato/eggplant bake. So that was at least one new dish.

I’m feeling on track to regaining my teenage fitness levels. Not only did I run every week, some weeks I went twice! (Perhaps even three times this week? I’m not sure; they all blur together).

Finally, I donated to charity. Not just the $10, mind you! I also donated some old clothing – handily enough, there’s a clothing bin for cancer fundraising outside the primary school around the corner from my house.

How are your goals coming along?

    10K in savings? I’m trying to get $10! Good job woman.

    Teenage fitness level made me laugh. When I was a teenager, I ate like crap, didn’t exercise and was still skinny, but I sure wasn’t in shape. My best shape was my early 20’s.

    Congrats in reaching your $10k savings goal! I had 3k for a while but now almost down below the 2k mark thanks to buying supplies and California-trip related things :/.

    Also, at least you made goals to begin with, regardless of if you reached them or not. I haven’t set any goals yet… and I probably should. Especially with uni off until the end of Feb… eeeek.

    Congrats on the 10K in saving! I’m shooting to have $500 by next year, lol. I’ve had about $1 in my savings for the past few years.

    My goals… hmm… let’s say that so far I am just paying off debt and still not quite on a goal. 10K in savings is my goal too. But it is a looong road for me.

    I’m almost ashamed to admit that it’s Nov. 2 and we’ve already spent $250 out of our $500 “extras” goal…I DON’T KNOW HOW THIS HAPPENS!
