    Thanks to Sara, this is what started this thread lol I am finding it very difficult to have the energy to workout after work, because I am too tired. I walk for an hour every evening with my dogs but that doesn't seem to be enough for me to lose the weight. My question to all of you: what...
  2. Question and Answer
    How do you stay motivated to scrimp and save? I have no debt and money sitting in the bank, lots of people around that don't get why I'm saving the money and tell me "well you say you want a new car, you have money in the bank just go buy one". Ive been hearing it so much lately that man do I...

    I am so amazed by those who can get out of bed on a chilly morning and get their exercise in early! I'm more likely to burrow in deeper under those snuggie warm blankets, or do a little knitting in front of the woodstove. Then by the end of the workday it's late and I'm tired and I'm getting...

    Winter is coming and I can feel my hibernation instinct coming with it. Does anyone else have trouble getting things done when it's cold? I find that in the winter I need really to push myself to do mundane tasks like laundry or housework - i always want to curl up somewhere instead. I do...
  5. Meal planning
    I always have good intentions on planning out all of our meals (dinners) and preparing everything at home so that we don't blow our budget on restaurant food. Some weeks we end up eating out several times. How do you stay motivated to cook and eat your meals at home?

    My husband and I read Dave Ramsey's TMMO and we are motivated to get going on this. Problem: We are behind on payments :( Good thing: We make enough monthly to pay all of our bills including retirement and insurance and also have a little left over for savings and such. We've had some...

    Hello! I just finished reading TMMO and have Financial Peace and More Than Enough on my bedside table thanks to my library. I started a budget last month and found out we randomly spend around $600 a month inexplicably yet have $88,000 in debt NOT including cars and the house (I can only stomach...

    Or times of the day when you get more done than others? For me, I seem to get a lot done on Wednesdays (not sure why). I get more done in the morning than at night. I suspect that's because I need to be up to get the kids off to school in the morning, and it's also when I have my 1 cup of...

    This is my only day off this week and I have so much I need to get done, but I am so not motivated to get out of my PJs and go do them. What do you do to get off your behind and start cleaning, run errands, etc. when you don't feel like it? Katy
  12. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    The months drone on in our attempt to be debt free including the mortgage. When we we're getting rid of all our other debt money was tighter and we stayed intense following DR's snowballing. Our motivation stayed renewed by watching those debts go away. We've now focused on the mortgage for over...

    How I stay motivated about what I eat lately is I just say to myself . . . Just for today I will eat healthy. Just for today I will drink my water, eat my fruit and remember my veggies. If I thought about having to do this everyday it would seem like too much! But, I can handle today. I can...
