January was a powerful month. For the first time, in what could be our entire relationship, Hubs and I have a common drive pushing both of us. It’s tangible and feasible. Good gracious, it’s motivating the heck out of us. We found our Holy Grail.
In accordance with our Holy Grail, we cashed out our Down Payment Fund and split it between my Roth IRA and my loans. You’ll see the final result is pretty awesome.
On top of an amazingly motivating goal, I was rewarded with a sweet raise and bonus at work this month. I must be doing something right. 🙂 To make matters even more awesome, my boss told me this week that he’s trying to promote me. We’ll see if he’s successful. If he is, I’ll be looking for a contractor to build my Scrooge McDuck pool. Please send any recommendations my way.
January wasn’t all roses. I got some bad news (that I already knew) about my physical health. Essentially, my laziness and poor eating over the last 5 months robbed me of all progress I made with my health last year. How Rude! I’ve gained back a bunch of weight and I’ve lost a lot of muscle tone. I worked so hard to get where I was and it’s gone.
I was so focused on Debt last year that I let my health slip away, which is so stupid because paying off debt is no more than going to work and watching my spending. There is no reason I can’t add proper eating and a bit of body moving to my to do list. Tracking my debt has worked wonders to keep me motivated with my monies, now I need to implement a system for my tummy.
Ok. back to positive.
- End of December Student Loan Debt: $15,908
- End of January Student Loan Debt $6,340
Those numbers don’t deceive you. I annihilated $9,568 worth of student loan debt this month. Weeeeeeeeee!
Sorry. Can’t finish the post. Too busy dancing.
How was your January? Do you have any motivational health advice?
