Another card bites the dust,

The shopping Gods are mad at me. I am trying to schedule pay off dates for my credit cards, and I had one scheduled to be paid off in December. I was so excited about paying a card off Monday, I just went ahead and paid this one off today. I even paid it two weeks early, which is NOT how I usually do it. I had a good tip night while bartending last night, so I took Mr. Whoa to lunch today, and decided to put the rest toward my Dillards card. As I logged into my email to get my statement, and then I get this:

Nice try asshole. I thought maybe I should take advantage of the pretty mustard (which is one of my favorite colors by the way) for under $200. That was only for a second. I clicked off the page and proceeded on to my online banking. Officially paid in full. Woot.

I did have an earlier financial distraction.

I got a lot of nays and yays about I'm on the fence. I think they are totally cute, but I have to wonder if they will even go over my tree trunks that I have for legs. Or will I be mistaken for Vivian Ward? Don't remember who that is? Well here....let me show you:

Now I think Miss Kim Kardashian wears them wonderfully.

I haven't been shopping for myself in a long time. I've been doing well with paying things off/down, I bring my breakfast and lunch to work almost everyday, and I check ads and coupons before I grocery shop. I stopped getting my hair colored and I no longer get my nails done. I cancelled Netflix (not for financial reasons, just because they were asswads), and I stopped drinking soda. Plus I work two jobs. I may go check the boots out, but I want to wait a couple of days to see if the novelty wears off.

I wish the debt fairy would come take mine away! Happy Wednesday everyone!

Curb stompin the credit cards. in the hell is it mid-October already?! The weather has been crazy weird here in Iowa. One day its 80 degrees, and the next its 35 degrees and raining. Monthly weigh in is approaching, which I am a little nervous for. I'm going to the Packers vs Vikings game in November, so I wanted to get a jersey for the occasion. Even tho I may have not lost (probably gained) weight this month, I felt pretty stinking cute when I tried this on. I know a lot of people say skinny jeans aren't for girls who have tree trunks as legs, but I think they look good. :)

Mr. Whoa and I went to Branson, MO for a little getaway earlier this month and the day we got there I got the flu. It was horrible. I couldn't keep a thing in me. So when I was feeling up to par, all I wanted to do was eat. I was SO was terrible. I also did have a few sodas, which made me feel even worse. I guessing from going from three sodas a day to about five in a month isn't so bad. I felt icky after we got home. I couldn't wait to detox.

I have kicked major ass on the no fast food. I thought it would be the hardest thing in the world to do, but it hasn't been. Sometimes I would eat it twice a day, so to not have it for a month and a half I'm pretty proud of myself. Now if I could only work on not having bar food at work....I'd be good. :)

One thing I really need to work on is hitting the gym. I pay for it, but I never go. Sometimes I hate working two jobs, especially when my part time one goes till 2-3 in the morning. I love my bartending job, and the money is great, so quitting is not an option right now. I've cut back on eating there a lot, especially since I no longer drink soda. It's hard to choose between sleep and gym time, because sleep usually wins. I need to start making it a priority.

Another goal I have added is to be financially fit. In the past month I have paid off two credit cards, and am very close to paying off a third. I feel the less stress you have, the more control you have over your life. When I'm stressed I can totally eat enough food to feel an army, so the less I have to pay for the better I will feel.

So I apologize for being such a lazy blogger lately. I have no idea where the time goes!
