you can read my original post here and the mid way ish update here
to have a working budget
we have a budget and I am working on tracking my spending to keep on top of things.
To reduce debt
My credit card balance is lower than when I wrote my original post but there’s still a way to go with it.
To start emergency fund
this hasn’t happened despite it being a line in the budget – I would rather just pay more off my debt.
To do at least 4 £10 week’s
there have probably been weeks I’ve only spent £10 but I have not kept track very well
Get rid of at least 30 items
I made it to at least 27 items so I’m going to call that a success
Put up proper curtains
I now have thicker curtains in the living room, which I am,really liking.
Sort bedroom including new headboard
My new bed – with headboard arrives in just under a week 🙂
Re sort kitchen cupboard to make more room for making things
this is an ongoing work in progress
Get planters for balcony to grow veg
this didnt happen then only thing we are growing this year is a tomato plant
Be happy with my space
we are getting there slowly, having a bed with increased storage will definitely help.
Fitness / Diet
YES – I have done a lot more proper cooking and preparing meals for the freezer
Use or ditch kitchen gadgets I am using the blender a lot more – hello breakfast smoothies
Try 10 New foods
This didn’t really happen, my appetite is not very good at the moment
Cook 10 New recipes
Don’t think I made it to 10 but I have cooked more different things.
Eat more fruit and veg
I’m doing really well with this as T eats more food with us now I’m making an effort to make sure it’s healthy
Have at least 8 date nights
We haven’t done any date nights but we did get away for the day for my birthday.
Have a weekend away
We looked at going away for my birthday but just went instead for a day in London as I didn’t want to spend the extra money on a hotel.
Do more together
This is something we have struggled with as I now work every other weekend, and we are both trying to revise for exams.
Be more active
I an walking alot more rather than automatically jumping on a bus but Im thinking or going back to the gym.
Not as much as I want to so this is a work in progress
Learn something new
😦 complete fail
Look into finishing degree
My current course finishes in 2 weeks and I then have 3 more course til I have finished my degree
Look at returning to work and creating a work life balance
I am back to work now but still working or finding a balance.
Take more pictures
this is something I struggle with part of me regrets not taking more but I like watching T with my eyes not through a camera lens
Attend more groups
We haven’t been to many groups but I am making an effort to make sure we get out every day.
I’m happy with what I have achieved but I think I prefer goals with a shorter time frame.
