I can't believe it is June already. Half the year is already over. So much has happened and we still have so much planned. Busy, Busy, Busy :)
I thought it would be neat to see where we are in our 6 month goal update.
Our 2017 goals are:
1) To get out of credit card debt- we are currently sitting at $9,919.34
We are still climbing this mountain. We are doing great with this but we had a few setbacks. Nathan and I got new glasses that added over $750 to our debt :( But I am happy at the progress we have made so far. Our new debt total is: $8773.39
2) To finally lose this extra "baby" weight- this has been a goal for a few years but some how the scale went in the opposite direction and instead of needing to lose 10-15 pounds that number has crept up to 35 pounds :(
Still working hard on this and trying to work out a new plan.
3) For Nathan and myself to get new glasses. I desperately need new glasses, we have figured out that super glue is not all that super or permanent :(
YAY :) We finally got new glasses. I had been putting it off now for a while. The final straw is when the other side of my glasses decided to break. Many thanks to a mini basketball that bounced off the basketball hoop and straight into the side of my face, leading to the breakage of the other side of my glasses :(
4) To get a new to us vehicle. I LOVE the fact that our vehicle is paid off and do not look forward to having a vehicle payment but our poor poor van is on its last breath :( We keep having to take it in to the mechanic and right now are paying $500 a month just to pay off the repair bills :(
We were hoping to pay off our credit card debt before making such a large purchase. But it couldn't wait. We sold our old broken down van and purchased a new to us 2015 Chevy Equinox with awesome low mileage. We hope to have this vehicle for a very long time :)
I was hoping we would be further along with our debt and weight loss journey but things came up and things don't go the way we planned. I do have faith that we will conquer these battles :) 2 out of 4 isn't bad LOL :)
How are you doing with your 2017 goals?
