Budgets and Diets

Friday, July 12, 2013

Gave myself a realty check after balancing my checkbook, paying some bills. I am getting tired of robbing Peter to pay Paul, it is not scriptural, it is not something I was taught by Dave Ramsey Financial Peace, it is not comfortable or cool to be broke. I am not going to claim it, but I am also looking at my actions and what I did to "temporary lose control " and what I must do to get back on track.

Budgets are like diets-sometimes they are not easy or fun, it takes discipline and consistency. Those are two areas that I need prayer, guidance and I have to show my own self tough love! I have been tight situations before and I have dug myself out. I am capable and I have the courage to pull myself up by my bootstraps and dig in and do the do!

    These are two areas I have struggled with as well. Money stress make me want to eat and gaining weight makes me want to shop to take my mind off my weight. I make progress in each area and then I have a set back. It is a vicious cycle. Praying for all who struggle with these areas, especially you.

    I think you also need support. Often times when we don't get enough support in our lives things happen like overeating and over spending... at least for me anyway!

    Big Hug!!!

    You might want to edit your blog - I think you mean "it is NOT comfortable or cool to be broke"
    I also have the same problem - "things" just seem to mount up just when It looks like things are getting better - UGH
