Payday Update

August 30th, 2019 at 11:38 am

Got paid today. Yay! I love payday. Quick updates:

1. Paid $1400 towards the last credit card. Looking forward to being done with this card in December.

2. Paid $233.46 extra to mortgage bringing it to a nice even $2000 payment. Every little extra bit counts.

3. Added $200 to EF

4. Sent in my taxes for the 3rd quarter.

5. Got a $40 gift for my friend who came by and helped water my garden while I was gone, put out the trash, let the meter reader in, etc.

I calculated how much SE income I actually lost while I was gone. $2080.18 in gross, but I save 40% to go towards taxes, so would have lost $1248.11 net. I will adjust my budget for the 2nd half of Sept, and the 1st half of Oct to reflect this.

I contacted all the people who wanted to see the old car while I was gone and let them know that I was back and could show them the car. No response yet. Maybe they all found other cars. Hopefully I will get a few more people interested.

True to what I had promised myself, I am trying to take better care of my health. For the last two days, I have been eating low-carb (I have diabetes), and I am certainly feeling the withdrawals - not so much in terms of hunger, but in cravings, and some headaches. I plan to do some meal-prep this coming week, and also will go for a walk and maybe a hike if it's not too hot or humid.

    I have been doing keto since March and I have to say it is well worth it from my perspective. I don't have diabetes, but I do have hypoglycemia, which means I am at a higher than normal risk for diabetes. Adjusting to keto was not a big switch for me, as I have been eating dairy free for 20 years and grain free for 10. Going low carb really tipped the scale in my favor and I actually lost over 20 pounds. Woo-hoo! I hope it works for you.

    Glad you are getting those bills paid down. Keep up the good work.

    It is smart to take care of yourself and eat healthy.
