With only 2 weeks left in July, I’m doing pretty well on my goals for the month. So far, I’ve paid off my personal loan and opened a Roth IRA! I feel like I’m making real financial progress, and I’m so happy about it. I’m going to add the $1000 to my E-fund with my July 31 paycheck, so that won’t happen until the end of the month, but I think I’ve made some major strides forward.
The exercise goal is still not going well. I think what I really need is some kind of exercise calendar, where I plan my workouts and stick to them. Exercise is just a real struggle for me and it always has been. I wish I was someone who was really into fitness and working out, but the truth is, I really, really hate it.
Other random updates: I started reading Twilight (finally!) and I’m loving it! I’m not going to over-intellectualize it, I’m just looking at it as a fun story to read. Also, I just ordered the second season of Madmen (a.k.a., the best show of all time) from Amazon, and the third season is starting soon. And, I found out that teachers are getting an extra day of summer this year. We’re only having 4 inservice days before the kids come back instead of 5. Sweet!
No big plans for the weekend, just hanging out by the pool, doing laundry, and perusing Georgetown. What does everyone else have going on??? Whatever you’re doing, enjoy!
