I let lifestyle creep get in my way this month. Although my net worth went up, I swiped my cards too much. mainly on food because I was “too busy” to make food. By too busy, I mean too lazy. This also is hurting my weight loss plans. food on the go is definitely not food for good. The actionable news is that This week I’m going through all of my subscriptions and cutting the fat. By my calculations I should be able to trim around $200/month from things I don’t use anymore, or need. My saving grace this month has been the fact that I’m back at my old job and that means I am once again getting money going into my SIMPLE IRA. without that, I would have had a negative month.
Last year I was able to shift my net worth up over $16,000. My goal this year is to at the least go up $10,000. If I can match last year, I would be ecstatic.
Now that I’m back at a job that is less physical than delivering packages, I need to be more aware of what is going into my mouth and fining ways to exercise. Since my wife is still having some balance issues after her surgery, we’ve been going walking almost every day (weather permitting), but they are only 5 or 10 minutes in all. I’ve started a workout routine in the morning to get my day started, but when I got my first dose of the Moderna vaccine, the vaccinator must have not wanted to inject me through my tattoo, so it was damn near in my shoulder joint. Let me tell you what isn’t a fun feeling. Lifting weight with a very sore joint. So for a couple days laziness has set in. Gotta fix that.
