my son is 11...:)

Monday, January 06, 2014

my lovely middle child's 11th birthday today. and tomorrow, we clean alllllllll the junk food out of the house! seriously it's bad.

30 spark points a day: only 12 today, didn't track my food so it makes for low points. that's why the junk has to go, I have this mental block that if i'm eating junk I shouldn't bother tracking, when the reality is the opposite, I know!

8 cups of water: yes. I can do the water thing - I actually need and crave it, water is now a full on habit that isn't going anywhere.

8 hours sleep: 7. close but not enough, I definitely feel it when I don't get that 8 hours!

Actively smile/actively be nice to DH (added that one): yep! I am really working at this one - putting the work back in the marriage, we manage quite well but I don't want to be complacent!

Exercise 10 minutes a day (good goal to start with): not as such - lots of housework and running about but no.

Come up with a savings goal: not done yet :) but I have spent the last couple of days organizing bills and seeing where we sit financially so we're facing the scary as a good start.

Do something towards automated income: today was a great build day for this - learning a few new and concrete things towards how to do this, have a couple of products, had a good meeting yesterday with the team, we are rolling.

Kids are back to school tomorrow and I am off to find a place that can get us the flu shot, apparently it's a bad one around here that I need to protect against - hope you are all healthy and happy!

    How I started saving was when I went to the store and used cent off coupons I came home and added up the coupons I used and put the money in a bank in my bedroom. That was how I had money for my little ones for Christmas when the were small. Now no problem saving and still using lots of coupons. Good luck

    About the saving of money let me tell you a little trick I do... I go to the dollar store they have these cute little metal cans with dogs or cats on it and you can't open them (they are banks with just a slit to put money in and can't take it out) I don't open it until the can is full hahaha you wouldn't believe how much you can save...
I did one with all quarters and saved almost 200 and then I did one with dollar bills and 5's if I had it and saved over 200... it doesn't hurt cause a lot of it is spare change and best thing is you can't open it hahahaha good luck!
