I kept getting knocked down this month. We had to bury my Aunt, and now Her father, My Grandfather passed away 2 days ago. He was in Hospice for almost a week. And I let it get the best of me. I stopped paying attention to what I was eating. I didn’t feel like cooking so I ate out a ton, spending much more than I should have. It is a big reminder how much my mental state can change my entire world. Spending, eating went up, physical activity went down.
I also am getting my tonsils out, as a 29 year old, which apparently is not fun as an adult) which is going to end up costing me a decent chunk of change. My wife had an MRI and might need surgery on her skull and brain stem, as well as another surgery on her ear.
The only positive is that we’ll probably reach both of our deductibles by the end of March, so it looks like its time to get everything done this year. I’m extremely grateful for my employer’s plan. We just meet the HDHP requirements so I can have an HSA, and they are super flexible with recovery time and other needed time off. However, 1-2 weeks of not being able to lift much and other restrictions might make me go crazy. So if anyone has any ideas for hobbies that I can have while sitting on the couch that don’t cost a ton, hit me up!
Next month will be better. With being laid up for a bit, I’ll be spending a lot less on fuel, and food, especially with a liquid diet for the first couple of days. I’m going to be best friends with my blender. Once I’m healed up, I plan on going back to the trainer, as I had to postpone my sessions because I stupidly threw out my back and then my shoulder. I will lose weight, I will save money, and I will get better mentally. I will.
