February 2010 Wrap-up
February Goal Report
- REPEAT: Establish a consistent work schedule. Not really. I did better at this, but I still need to fight at this. I am going to change this next month to a consistent wake up time.
- Run 3x a week, 8+ miles/week Yes! There was one week I ran just twice due to rain and only got 7, but I did so good I’m counting this as a win anyway. Weekly mileage count was 11,12,7, and 12.
- Complete 12 days of 30 day shred. No. Two times a week was all I managed. I want to step this up.
- Keep eating out budget below $40. Oh no. We were so close but then decided to go out for tapas Friday.
- Don’t buy any work clothes or boring clothes. Yes! So I bought bras and they are boring, but I needed them. Aside from that, my only purchase was denim leggings — definitely not work appropriate.
- Save 100% of my bonus. Yes! It is all saved up, mostly in the car and long term fund.
- Go on a backpacking trip. No. As usual. I blame wedding planning and T’s cycling. March isn’t looking much better
- (Repeat) Passport Finally! After like two years on my to-do list.
- (Repeat) Finish two books Nope
- (Repeat) Call cable company Nope
- (Repeat) Wash my poor dirty car! Nope — and you can tell!
- Send out wedding invitations Yes!
- Find a florist Yes! On the last day of the month, I drug my mom (who came to town!) and we got this taken care of. Damn, flowers are expensive! If I was having a big wedding, we could NOT have done floral centerpieces.
- Call the hairdressers Yes!
- Start programs (my first DIY wedding project) Not really, just looked up ideas.
- Mail birthday presents Yes!
- T, order your guys’ tuxes! No, but this is as much my fault than his — we’ve procured a swatch and can proceed
- T, max your 2009 IRA! No! Get on it T!
Net worth report: $62,604
My first month to end over $60k! The cash tracking is often off by a few hundred either way due to the complicated way I manage my accounts (note to self: fix this), but either way, I saved a ton for retirement and a good amount in various targeted savings. Wedding spending took away nearly $2,000 this month and the wedding fund is slowly dwindling. I was always unsure if I should even included it in my net worth, but that question will be moot in less than 2 months.
