How do you get rid of a "free spirit"?
Wednesday, October 12, 2011
Well, this week went pretty fast. I tried my best to stay on track and exercise each day (I wear a pedometer almost every day to make sure I put in my 10,000 steps). I weighed myself today and I weighed 175.8, so I did lose about 2 pounds, but for some reason I don't feel so joyful about it - I just really detest being in the 170's. It is hard working full time, wife, mother to two kids with Autism. It gets pretty overwhelming, but I will not give up on my dreams.
So who is the "free spirit", well if you are a Dave Ramsey fan you would know that is the spender/shopaholic of the family, and that would be my hubby. It takes a great deal of love and patience not to strangle him when he looks at his tool magazines, my hubby so loves tools and anything to do with cars - that is where the majority of our debt stems from. Anyhow, I lovingly removed his cc from his wallet, and told him that we were starting to steal from Peter to pay Paul (haha). He was all on board agreeing to end our bit of spending splurge, and I hope and pray that he stays on board. Anyone have any good ways to get your shopaholic to stop shopping?
Until next week.
