goal update!

I’m not happy with how Mint calculates whether or not I’m in the red for a particular month.

Despite not technically being in the red, because my last paycheck came in on the very last day of January, Mint thinks I haven’t earned anything and I’m “in the red”. Argh. It’s annoying because I know I’m not spending above my means. Mร‚ย & I take our finances seriously so I know that Mint is lying through her teeth. ๐Ÿ˜› It’s not that serious. Things will even out a bit once I get paid (biweekly schedule) and when M starts getting paid, things won’t look so red all the damn time. ๐Ÿ™‚

M got a new job (as an intern) in his field and the location is practically in our backyard !! I don’t think you’ll understand how CRAZY it is that he got this job. In Athens, GA. But it worked out and I’m so happy that it did.

I’m still hitting the gym. I’m starting to realize that going to the gym (working out, saving, etc) is not necessarily about getting ‘swole’ anymore. It’s a symbol to myself that I can do things that I set my mind to. It’s about cultivating a new habit that just happens to be a great thing for my body. I don’t know who this new gal is but I love her! ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m actually at the heaviest weight I’ve been in a while (~ 122 on a 5ft 2in frame) but I’m quite muscular and lean-looking so it’s not a bad look for me. I am working on reducing my body fat (mainly around the midsection) and it’s a bit early to judge but I feel ‘tighter’ already. ร‚ย Now, all i need to do is learn to swim and I’ll be ready for swimsuit season. ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m a chronic nail biter. It’s ร‚ย a nervous habit but I’m putting this here to publicly state that I will once again attempt to stop biting my nails. Back in 2009, I quit and ร‚ย my nails grew quite long. I’d like to have them back so wish me luck. ๐Ÿ™‚
