First let’s see how I did in January…..
January Mini Goals:
+ Track my calories. Exercise at least 23 times. Kick start my weight loss plan.
I tracked 25/31 days, exercised 16 times and lost a total of 4lbs. 3lbs of that was holiday weight that I lost early in the month and so total weight lost towards my 2014 goal is 1lb/30lbs. It’s a start!
+ Achieve a 46% (of net income) savings rate
This gets a little complicated as we added gift money into the mix in January so we either saved 44% or 47% of our net income.
+ List every item that comes into our home
Yes! Post to come next week!
+ Blitz clean (and de-clutter if needed) at least two rooms
Yes! Linked to goal above!
+ Make (or save from budget) at least £150
No. Total fail. I made £18.07 extra income in January.
February Mini Goals:
+ Lose 3lbs & record all calories eaten 28/28
+ Read 3 Books (all from the library) and continue my unofficial book buying freeze!
+ List every item that enters the house
+ Complete a ‘Not Buying It’ month*
+ Stick to our £200 grocery budget
*A ‘Not Buying It’ month means no retail therapy – I can buy food or pay for train fares if I’m in London, but I can’t do any shopping!
