So how did I do in April/what do I plan to do in May?
1. Go to bed/wake up earlier.
2. Make dinner 3x/week
I have made dinner, but not 3x a week, and I have been tracking my intake on and off with the Lose It! app. I plan to use Lose It! more often this month.
3. Keep living space clean.
I hope to buy the shelving that I mentioned in my last update sometime this week, and then I’ll let you know how this goes next month.
4. Live off salary and save freelance income.
I did pretty well with this, but see above–my salary doesn’t cover furniture.
5. Save $1000.
Have not done this yet… But hope to start really saving soon.
6. Then get a secured credit card.
It has arrived, I have charged $6.99 to it, and I will have no problem paying off that balance.
7. Finish dissertation by end of July/Finish draft of middle-grade novel by December.
May is the month that i will start really working on this. I will need to spend at least one day/week focusing on dissertation stuff.
I did not accomplish my April goal, like, at all, which was not to eat fast food. My May goal is going to be to do a workout with my Pilates bar four times a week.
