    A teeny step better today. I still didn't get any exercise, but I did better in the water arena.

    Diet. Nibbled all day, so let's see if I can remember. Going chronologically, I started with two cups of coffee, one small soymilk smoothie (about 1.5 cups total), crackers and cheese, a bowl of veggie soup, another smoothie, some more crackers and cheese. I think that is it. Oh, and a handful of blackberries that I picked while out messing around in my garden.

    Water. ...

    Bad day, diet-wise.

    Food. Four cups of coffee, two power bars, one stale oatmeal cookie, one small soy milk smoothie and one sucker.

    Water. None.

    The goal: to raise as much money as possible this month to pay down debt.

    Total so far: $ 127.87

    Ransacked my change jar and found $86.26 waiting there. I am going to take exactly $100 in small bills and change with me to the garage sale this Saturday, so it will be easy, at the end of the day, for me to figure out how much I made.

    I also made up a BUNCH of lavender sachets yesterday, which I sell for $1 each, hoping that people will pick those up. ...

    The goal: to raise as much money as possible this month to pay down debt.

    Total so far: $41.61

    Deposited a check from Inbox Dollars for $28.46. I go through Inbox to make purchases from eBay and Amazon, and I also do as many of their surveys and paid emails as possible. It takes me about 90 days to earn $30 that way, but I would be making the purchases anyway, so it is free money to me.

    I also sold $13.15 in books to the used book store. The bookstore ...
