2022 Goals: April Progress Check

Pretty good start to the goals for this year!  Lots of ones done, including all the streaming ones, and the big house one is well underway!  I’ve had a lot of the selection meetings, now it’s waiting for the final costs to come to see where it stands versus the budget and if we have to cut some stuff back to stay within said budget.  Wee!


These are goals revolving around anything related to my personal finances.

  1. No new credit card debt
  2. Calm my tits on Twitch giving to no more than $100 a month in bits/subs/tips/donations, plus 2 6 mth subscriptions – MODIFIED because I was not accounting for my 6 mth subs; I’m also failing this to ridiculous levels
  3. Drainage loan balance to $3,500 or less
  4. Figure out best way to finance foundation/crawlspace/bathroom stuffDONE! Took out a personal loan

Fitness and Health

Anything related to exercise, weight loss, general fitness, and being a healthier me.

  1. Strength training at least 3 times a week
  2. Cardio at least 2 times a week
  3. Redo Wondr program and try better to stick to it
  4. More mindfully practice self-care
