I’m back…again!

For the last two weeks, I have had “write a blog entry” on my daily to-do list. I finally asked myself why I have stopped making blogging a priority. Was it finally time to be like Elsa and let it go? Even though my writing has diminished to twice a month, I am still an avid blogger in my mind. 🙂  For now, I am going to try to keep on going, but giving myself an ultimatum. If I don’t get better by June, its time to say good bye!

Recapping March, I did pretty well on the health front. My appointment at the end of the month was very successful. The doctor didn’t even hint that I should be on blood pressure medication as my reading was wonderful. For the most part, the headaches are gone and I have much more energy. She did say I was dehydrated which comes as no surprise since I can’t stand water. Still looking for hacks to help me with my water consumption. I’ve tried apps, trying to drink a cup on even hours of the day and getting a fancy water bottle. Still riding front seat on the struggle bus.

As far as finances go, I have been horrendous! It seems like March was a constant shed of money, both planned and unplanned. I can still make my goals for the year if I get it together NOW! I have decided to jump start my rededication to savings by attempting a 10 day “no spending” fast. Similar to a detox, I am hoping to reset my mind and focus on savings again! Yesterday was the first day and I almost blew it. We had an extremely hectic morning. 1pm rolled around and we hadn’t eaten lunch. My daughter was on the verge of having a meltdown so I stopped at a cafe to feed her. Luckily I remember I had a gift card and used that to purchase our lunch. Meltdown averted!

The one rule for my mini-fast is simple: do not spend any money using debt or credit cards. Let’s see how I do!

Day 1 – April 4

Money spend: $0

Our tanks are on full and there are plenty of groceries. I am actually excited to use this opportunity to clean out the pantry a little bit! Lets see how we do!
