Mostly a success. Lot of discipline. Not a lot of money-making. Bought a domain name for the site. Have not started building it yet. Not a good job on erasing the bad habit of sports media. Slowly but surely coming along, however. Every month I get less interested, read a little less.
Great month in terms of fitness, school and food intake. Great month with Melinda. A tough, challenging month. But great nonetheless.
Website built. Ticket to Boston bought. Completely out of debt (1.5K to go). Continued discipline and consistency.

Potential disaster averted… for now.
Pretty much a lost day due to poor sleep quality. Or that’s what I’m blaming it on. Bleh. Chalking it up as an impromptu off day and getting back on the saddle tomorrow.
Not sure how committed Melinda is to becoming great. I’ve decided I can’t keep spending so much energy worrying about her. I need to do my own thing. Make sure my shit is on point. We don’t have to do everything together. I’m putting too much energy into her shit and allowing that to bother me when she doesn’t reciprocate that energy.

Stressed about finances. Ugh.
I have $700 saved. I have less than $100 to spend. I want to get completely out of debt. $530 to Mom, $500 to lawyer, $500 to credit card. Have $600 of supplements to buy that I’m hoping Mindi helps out with at least $300.
Times are lean right now. We both have $194 of EBT each month. But we eat like $800 of food. Everything organic. Quality ingredients. Lot of home-cooked meals. Whole Foods, Sprouts, Trader Joe’s, Fresh and Easy. I don’t mind spending on that.
My fixed monthly expenses are very low to non-existent. No rent. $50 for my phone bill. That’s it, really. Once I get out of debt, I’ll be able to save at least 1K every month. That’s the goal. Really, I want to save 2K. Which means earning 5K. Like I used to.
Need to get this website up and work my buns off. Need to market and advertise more effectively.
Her fixed income is $1400. Rent, debt, storage, phone, chiropractor.
Stressed stressed stressed.
Psych test on Saturday. Three chapters down, three to go re: studying.
StrongLifts yesterday. 160/160/160. Squats/Bench/Deadlift.
Yoga today. Ran today. Lower back/upper hip is killing me.
What else? Andy and I are doing the podcast thang. Two weeks in. We’re gonna just learn and adapt!
