Little Things for Which I am Thankful

Although I was quite grumpy this morning, I do feel like this was a good week, overall. Feel like I am writing from a place of abundance, you know? (I just wish I also had an abundance of time to get everything done that I want to do!)

  1. Finally found out what is wrong with my stomach, and the good news is that it is totally fixable. I have something called diastasis recti, which is normally something pregnant or post-natal women get. Or, you can get it from doing exercises incorrectly. I think a large portion of my problem with the tummy and also my back pain is that I breathe incorrectly. I don’t breathe properly through my diaphragm like you are supposed to. So, in a way, it’s good that I have this problem. I’ve thought about having my target audience of clients be middle aged women, who will likely suffer from this problem. Consequently, it will give me more insight into their problems and how to fix it.
  2. I am taking an online course about planning your way to mortgage-freedom. The teacher is quite hands-on, which I absolutely love and the class is very involved in the discussions. We have a lot of writing to do on our own, and we can share with the group if we want to. I think it’s really, really helping.
  3. I started training another friend this morning. She calls herself a founding member of the Chubby Buddy Club, lol.   I am grateful that she’s willing to put in the time with me, and also that I am finding I really love helping people feel better about themselves through exercise and fitness overall. This tells me I am on the right path in life.
  4. It is finally, FINALLY beginning to feel like springtime with temps expected to rise to the 50s. It’s not a moment too soon, believe me.
  5. I am hoping to finish yet another chapter for my author this weekend, which always makes me feel good.
  6. I have some really good friends in this life who have been keeping me focused on my goals and dreams, and they always help to pick me up when I start getting frustrated that it’s not happening soon enough.

Getting Rid of My Debt, Part 13 (Catching Up)

Don't we all wish we could stay in bed some mornings?
Don’t we all wish we could stay in bed some mornings?

Been a few weeks and I haven’t reported in on my progress. Well, not much has changed since the past two weeks, but that is about to change this week. I should have been able to pay my extra $430 to my private loans, as usual out of my regular paycheck, but this month that didn’t work out. I am now taking an e-course called Dreaming of Mortgage-Freedom that is run by Hari of the Tiny House Family blog and one of our first assignments is to start tracking our spending.  (To get to where you’re going, you need to know where you are right now.) She suggested an app and I know others who do the same thing. (By the way, she was on the Today Show this morning! But for me, sometimes, it’s literally the writing down of everything with pen and paper that helps me to see things clearly. And here’s what happened this month: Read more
