Hit two goals! Plus good progress on some others

September 30th, 2017 at 02:02 pm

Today I tried a new salad for lunch, which takes us to 50 new meals tried in 2017 -- I hit the goal!

It was a kale and spinach salad with shredded beets, kohlrabi and carrots, with toasted pumpkin seeds, baked tofu cubes and a grapefruit dressing. It was awesome! I have a ton of leftover veggies which I'll either eat as salads or cook as side dishes this week.

Also today, I did our net worth and retirement calculations and saw that we surpassed my goal of $350,000 in retirement assets by the end of the year. We're now at $358,790, which I feel gives us a good cushion so hopefully we don't dip below that for the rest of the year.

Actually I feel I may have hit another goal -- to get my weight under 130 -- but that's one that I don't want to call a win until the end of the year, because it takes work to maintain. I've weighed in under 130 for the past three days, though, so I'm hopeful I can keep it up.

As for other goals, it's clear we'll hit the debt below $450K in November, and we're only $1,429 away from hitting a million in assets, so we just need the markets to stay flat in order to get there with our contributions in the next month or so.

I know I won't hit every goal this year, but I'm glad a few of them are looking more possible!

    Congrats on your goals! I've tried quite a few new recipes this year, I know wish I was keeping track! I don't think it's anywhere near 50 though.
