Resolutions: September Update

Well, it's September 1st, and that means it is time to update everyone on my resolutions. In March I gave myself a C+, and in June I upgraded to a solid B.

1. Get Married- done and done.

2. Be on time- I was going realllly well with this. I started to slide a little with getting to work on time, but I think the fact that my ceremony and reception started on time, I should get extra credit points. Don't you?

3. 86 Chunkasaurus- eh. I did really awesome around the wedding. I was down to 116 (in fact my wedding gown was too big on me!) but then then we returned from vaca, I was back up to 123. No bueno. At all. I had to remind myself that just because it doesn't bite me first, I do not need to eat it. I'm back to eating better, and NOTHING after 9:00 pm.

4. Cha- ching!- I am so proud of this, but JEGs and I are slowly but surely putting a little chunk of money away. Along with the very generous gifts from our friends and family, we have are about 7% away from our goal! We are going to meet with our bank's financial advisor soon to learn how to divide our money between savings, vacation fund, emergency and other things.

5. Good stuff- now that the wedding is over, I feel like I have more time to focus on me. As much as I love my job right now, it's not something I can see myself in for more then three more years. I want to start working on my next career move. I'll keep you updated.

All in all, I feel pretty good. I think I am holding pretty steady at a B... maybe a B+. But I'm not trying to get too cocky.

How about you friends? Are you holding up your resolutions? I love hearing your stories as well!

Always & Forever,

nope. nothing. nada. zilch. My ONE resolution back in March was to loose weight (health issues) and I haven't lost one.miserable.pound.
I blame it on stress since life has been pretty hectic but I need to do better since I promise my physician I was going to be down 30lbs by our next appointment in March. I give myself an F

#3 makes me not want to read your blog anymore. I know I don't know you & I don't know why I care, but 123 is hardly overweight.
