November Goals & Link-up!

Happy Halloween!  I can’t believe that it’s already the end of October, and November starts tomorrow!!

With the end of the month comes a review of October’s goals, and a plan set forth for November.  Just a little refresher here:

October goals
– Cut food spending by 75%.
– Cut Caribou spending in half.
– Put all extra income to credit card debt.
– Workout 4xs per week (shouldn’t be too hard since I’ll be starting a fitness challenge with the sister-in-law mid-month).
– Do at least 10 flights of stairs at work each day (one flight at work is basically the amount of 2 normal flights).
– Work on a bit of meal planning for my hypoglycemia and now that I found out I have slightly high cholesterol.

So how did they go?

– Cut food spending by 75%. – fail, it actually increased…what??
– Cut Caribou spending in half. – Sucess!  I actually only spend 44% of what I did in Septmeber!
– Put all extra income to credit card debt. – Success!  Almost $500 extra went to my credit card this month!
– Workout 4xs per week (shouldn’t be too hard since I’ll be starting a fitness challenge with the sister-in-law mid-month). – Sucess!  The fitness challenge has been going well, too –> 10 inches gone so far!
– Do at least 10 flights of stairs at work each day (one flight at work is basically the amount of 2 normal flights). – Almost success – I have done more than 10 most nights, but there were a couple days that I had less.  I’m averaging over 10 a night though!
– Work on a bit of meal planning for my hypoglycemia and now that I found out I have slightly high cholesterol. – Almost success – the meal planning side has been getting a bit better, but my snack choices have greatly improved!

Well, it was a pretty good month!  There a couple things to keep working on, but I like not seeing a lot of red!

Now onto my goals for November:

November goals
– Cut food spending by 75%.
– Save at least $250 to our Wedding Fund
