So, things are getting better. We paid off another credit card this weekend!
That was exciting!!! Christmas was meager, but perfect at the same time. We relaxed, spent time together, and created great memories.
Thanks Goldie for your thoughts. We did get everyone else presents. Actually, it was amazing how perfect it all worked out. We found perfect presents for everyone for really inexpensive. It was awesome!!!
I can hardly wait to pay off the last debt... We are still working our plan, and eventually, we will see grand results!

So, I haven't put anything on the blog, because the debt reduction plan - not working so well. I am still working two jobs, I am still trying so hard to get those paid down, and we are not making a single dent!!!
Now here it is Christmas, we are working tons, and we still don't have money for presents. Grrrr!!!
Looking back over the blogs from the past year, I could see my own progression, so although I am frustrated right now, I decided I wanted this feeling documented. :)
That way, when things are more positive, I will see that I didn't have any reason to worry...

So, after accomplishing my weight loss goal, my goal has been to get rid of debt. I figure its done in just the same way. Making some sacrifices today for a bigger picture; making small choices day-to-day, and seeing small changes until one day - We're debt free!
I remember it being a struggle when I first started changing the way I ate and exercising. I was so frustrated that it didn't go faster. That is the way I am feeling right now. Working tons of extra hours, spending little to nothing extra, and well, there is very little change on the financial statements.
Gratefully, I have been through this already. I already know that the changes will be small (if there are any at first). I feel all the pains of changing and working and see no results... yet.
I am excited for that day when I open up a bill, and the balance says $0!!! And in not too long, I will have paid off the first debt, so the 2nd debt will go twice as fast. (Twice as much money to spend towards the debt.) And it will keep snowballing!
So, although today things aren't working as fast as I want them to, it feels good to know that we will still hit our goal, and it will still feel sooooo good!

So, it has been a year since I changed my life to get healthier. It took a while for me to lose the weight, but I did it. These past couple of months have been rather stressful.
I figure stress is the best test to see whether this was a lifestyle change or something temporary. It feels good to say that I have done pretty darn good keeping myself healthy. I have kept eating good, and I have kept exercising, and I have kept drinking water and taking vitamins. Somehow, I have found the time and the energy to make it all work.
IT FEELS SO GOOD!!!
Now, on to some of my other goals... Getting completely free from debt is next. I will follow a similar pattern - learn how to live my financial life healthy.

I've been thinking about the things I would do if I knew I wouldn't fail.
It would be much easier to love unconditionally. I wouldn't be afraid to share my whole heart with anyone.
I would start on my own business doing events planning for others.
I would become a sign language interpreter - not because that's what I want to do, but I would like to be able to do it.
I would play the violin again, and I would learn every instrument.
I would sing.
I would try out to be in an orchestra for the movies.
My most important dream is to be a mom, so I guess, I would go make that happen. ;)
I would help build Dann's businesses... I don't know what I would do, but if I couldn't fail - I would want all of his dreams to come true too.
I would become a runner.
I would go rock-climbing.
That's a good start...
