    ~Get rid of at least 25 things. (The cellar looks like a flea market. The rest of my house is neat. People could stop by anytime and I would not feel uncomfortable. Now the cellar is a different story.)

    ~Pay off at least 1/2 of a cc balance
    ~Drink 4-5 glasses of water per day.
    ~Buy vitamins and take them every day.
    ~Pay off daughter's camp.
    ~Pay a portion of a doctor's bill.
    ~Try and keep pantry stocked so I don't have to do a huge shopping order.
    ~I need to get us on a budget.
    ~Try a new recipe.

    I guess that is it.

    I have been so off kilter with my goals since the beginning of the year. Now that I'm starting to feel a little better I can't continue to hide behind being exhausted. (Side effect of a chronic illness). I watch some of you plug on through your own illness and know myself well enough to know that it's time to hold myself accountable. So I say to myself "Self, you've rested enough ..... now let's get on with it!"

    APRIL 2007


    ~No more weight gain
    ~Continue to stay smoke free
    ~Excersize at least 15 minutes 5 days a week


    ~accrue no debt
    ~$200.00 on groceries
    ~$500.00 for water heater


    ~Finish ironing out financial plan (map) with DH
    ~One large home project completed
    ~Two small home projects completed

    Here are my revised and updated goals. My first set were so vague that they weren't very motivating.

    Goals were:

    pay off 500$ to my dad
    lose 5 lbs.
    not eat out as much
    drink water
    exercise
    love myself more.

    Goals are:

    1. Keep Groceries under 400$.
    2. Eat out as little as possible.
    3. Work out more. (I've been doing this!)
    4. Lose 5 lbs. (Went from 117.4 to 116.8 this morning. Every bit counts!)
    5. Reduce by 500$. (Mailed a 170$ car payment.)
    6. Get an A in my class. (At last check, I had a 98%)
    7. Add 100$ to my emergency fund.
    8. Add 200$ to our money market.
    9. Pamper myself.

    And that's all. PHEW!

    My goals for April:

    *Finish painting the trim around the house. Replace an older window in the cupola with a newer efficient one.

    * Continue helping neighbor plot out and till up the garden space. We are sharing a huge garden and will work it together.

    *Try to spend $200.00 or less on food at the store. Replace as much meat as possible with fruit, veggies and grains.

    *Eat out only two times.

    *Exercise daily.

    *Clean carpets over at the duplex.

    * Work on our solar panels.
