Dave Ramsey (who I LOVE) is giving away $999 a day (plus $1) to someone to start their first emergency fund (baby step 1 in his Total Money Makeover Program). You can register every day from 9/9/09 to 9/18/09. Have your spouse do it too!! Oh how I hope to win! That's about how much we have left on our minivan (which we are paying off in October, win or no win)!
Second thing, I didn't post my WW results on my facebook page yesterday like I have been doing each week. I bet you can guess why....yep, I gained a pound. So now I'm only down 9 pounds. And I'm kinda mad at myself. I have been NOT keeping track of what I eat, and not really doing much. I always do this, I do pretty well for about a month, then I give up. Don't know why, I'm still doing ok, but I have decided I need to get my bottom off the couch. So, I came across this blog that I've been occasionally reading. And, I've been thinking to myself, I NEED to start working out. We are keeping with our savings goals, so there is no gym membership in my future, so I need and want to start running. But, I have asthma, and I have always not done well at running. Well, she posted about the couch to 5K plan that takes around 2 months! That sounds like a plan, and you know I love plans!!! So, I am going to start the plan tomorrow (I know, why not today), but I will, I promise, and I'm putting it on my blog so if you read this and talk to me, you will ask me how it's going!!
That's all for now. I hope to start redesigning this blog thing soon, but I'm also super sewing lately, so that's been taking up my time. I actually opened an etsy store, but will not be posting to it or adding things to it until I can get it just how I like it (and Val, I need your HELP!!). Have a relaxing weekend!
