Progress on goals

February 23rd, 2011 at 01:13 pm

Well, I still haven't worked out or really tried to eat healthy this year (although I haven't been super-unhealthy either). Combination of laziness, lack of focus and a series of mild but unpleasant colds. I'm currently on the second week of a persistent cough, and if talking spurs coughing, I can't imagine what cardio exercise would do.

As a result I haven't bothered to weigh in; I know I should be doing it anyway, to keep weight loss top of mind, but I just haven't felt like it.

However, I've made some progress on other goals.

Charitable donations: AS donated $20 to a nonprofit, bringing our total to $145
AS's net worth: AS's negative net worth decreased by $802 since last time I checked, bringing her to negative $5608.
Read a book/creative project: I've started a book and hope to finish it by the end of February. It's interesting; I just never seem to find time!
Make money with side hustles: Finally some progress on this! NT's job, out of the blue, asked me to do a light proofread of a book they're reprinting. I'm charging $40 per hour and it's about 500 pages, so even going super-fast I'm going to make probably at least $800. This will go to the tax bill or lawyer fund.

    Yeah, I haven't been able to go to the gym for a couple of weeks. I have had a bad cold for three weeks. I worked out a couple of times with it, but my nose started bleeding in class both times. It was icky and embarrasing. The air at the gym is so dry, plus I was blowing my nose more so I could breathe. Bad combo, I suppose.

    Great job on the proof-reading number !!

    Yeah - there is a really bad flu in my area at the moment - one that doesn't come every year. I think it has to with different Air Masses and the colder winters we've been having.

    Hope you're feeling better soon !
