Jonesy’s Choice Challenge. Word!

Recommended Posts

 

lpo.gif

 

I’ve been hit or miss with challenges lately. Mostly it’s getting online to update and just being too lazy to turn on my computer or feeling overwhelmed with updates. I need to get over that. This challenge I’m going a little more complicated but nowhere as complicated as I have in the past. I want to work on a lot of stuff and since I’ll be starting another new job halfway through the challenge I figured I’d really stress myself out. I need to find a good way to deal with stress anyways so I’m going to force myself to get it together.

Good luck with it! (If I had to do so many grown-up things in one challenge I would die)

HA! Agreed. A few challenges ago I did a whole bunch of adulting - IT WAS THE WORST :P

Haha ok here’s some encouragement - it does feel awesome to check off adulting boxes! Oh and putting on good tuuuuunes helps a lot in making it suck less! :)

Thanks guys! Adulting does suck but as a reluctant adult, it needs to be done. Haha

 

Also going to participate in the mini but I don't know what to make my character. Need to think on it.

No paleo today. I was sick this morning and slept in way too long which also made going to the store not happen. Spent all weekend out in the woods with no service and no meal planning.

Great! You went hiking?

 

I could have but I did not, too rainy! A group of us went up to a cabin and crafted. Most knitted, some crocheted, and one friend was making a paper mache Loki helmet.

Budgeted $30 for dinner and only spent $18.94! I was going to get frozen yogurt because I had some extra to spend but I talked myself out of it. Honestly I didn't need it and I was already full.

Gah I was lazy this weekend. 

 

Grindage!

WEEKENDS: I did not do horrible except on Sunday. I am going to have to give up ice cream. I decided to have some for dessert on Sunday and was in pain that evening. Also I'm going to have to restrict coffee to before 12pm on days prior to a weekday. I did not get to sleep until 6am on Monday.

-50 (35.93) grocery 

-20 (20) gas

-25 (37.89) spending money 

TOTAL : 760 --- ACTUAL : 709.95

5pts for sticking to my budget for the week and coming in under target! I did spend a little extra spending money (most of it Starbucks) but since I saved some money on groceries, my tabs, and dinner out it was ok to me.

Oooh, good work with your budget! Sorry ice cream isn't agreeing with you. :(

 

Thanks! I'm trying to do better about not buying whatever I feel like without budgeting it. This weekend I had a pretty hard wanting to do some shopping. SO BAD! Like I have all these ideas. I want to update all my nail polishes since they are all like 15 years old. I want to reduce what I have and get some good quality standard colors. I also wanted to buy some leggings and work pants, which would have led to a few outfits. I know I'll need to buy at least 2 more work pants soon though. There were a few other wants like bullet journal pens, gifts for Christmas, and I wanted to get some pictures printed. I want to start seasonal containers that have all my seasonal decor in them. Then yesterday as I was riding high on my caffeine hype, I wanted to redecorate my whole living room, dining room and desk area. Oh and I also want to get another tattoo.   

 

You know, the ice cream, it's not a huge loss. I'd rather have frozen yogurt anyways. Now if that is not agreeable...woe will be me.
