In the last thirty days, I've talked a bit about my goals for the new year. Here's how I'm doing...
Goal 1: lose 49 pounds in 2011.
Progress: I've lost 8.6 pounds so far in 2011.
Left to go: 40.4
Feelings: YAY! This is going to happen! I'm doing great at this goal!
Goal 2: Establish a $500 savings buffer.
Progress: I've budgeted $30 toward this cause so far.
Left to go: $470
Feelings: All of my financial goals are going to be hard to meet this year due to unforeseen expenses that recently cropped up. However, I will keep at it! I might even be able to totally fund this with our tax return. We'll see.
Goal 3: Make at least two double car payments.
Progress: So far, none.
Left to go: $993.56
Feelings: not insurmountable. I plan to use some of our tax refund to do this. Taxes are already filed, so I'm hoping to have this goal crossed off the list by late February!
Goal 4: Pay off credit card.
Progress: None. Paid $100 this month but ended up using it! :(
Left to go: $1800
Feelings: Just keep swimming. Just keep swimming.
Finally, just because I'm so crazy about them, here are a couple pictures of my dogs. I hope you enjoy your Thursday!
