I should be 1/2 way through my second 40 Day Challenge. Instead I am not more than treading water. I did, however, loose the pound I had put back on that I blogged about 11 days ago + another 1 1/2 pounds. I am down 9 pounds from exactly 2 months ago so I'll take that as a win.
Of course I had hoped to be further along at this time. On the weight tracker, based on the goal I had set two month ago, I am exactly on the goal line this morning. Up to now I had been below the goal line, meaning I was ahead of goal. Now I'd better get back on track or I will be behind goal this coming week.
Lots of stress. I am basically out of money due to a financial drain that will total over $5,000 by a month from now. I won't go into details at this time.
God does have a sense of humor though. I've been praying for some money to come my way. I got an unexpected check in the mail from Ford for $250. This was due to their overestimating the mileage on my car. I said to God, "Thank you, Lord, for this unexpected check. I was hoping, though, for something with some more zeros at the end " Hey, I'll take what I can get though.
Just re-read the goals I set for my second 40 days. Although I have not actually been doing the challenge I have been good on a couple o the goals:
My drinking of soda, diet or regular is now down more than 75% from 2 months ago.
I've been working on my condo trying to clear two rooms that I can then rent out.
