2016 recap

Well, I didn’t do a great job of keeping up with this, huh? Steph and I were talking about how we’ve both fallen off the wagon (I moreso than her), and we think maybe some kind of simplified, more frequent check-in will help. Neither of us wants to let the blog go, so we’ll work…

September

1. Move 401ks to IRAs at my bank. No progress on this. 2. Lose 20 pounds. I still have five pounds or so to go. I just can’t seem to commit to those last five pounds, but I did try a little in September. 3. Clothing budget of $500. Make 5 items of clothing. Still…

May-August 2016: Goals progress

Guys, it’s time to get ready for summer. Oh, it’s Labor Day? Well, shit. 1. Move 401ks to IRAs at my bank. I have gathered most of my documentation and have been researching what types of accounts I need, but I think I really just need a financial adviser at my bank to do it…

August 2016 Goals Update

Oh man, I’m the worst.* This is my second post of the year? Really?? Well, let’s see where we are. CRAFTY THINGS: Knit a pair of socks. The sock cuff has grown. It’s actually rather sock-like! Knit a pair of mittens. Still in progress. Get better at calligraphy. Haven’t done much here. Do something creative for at least 30 min. a…

March 2016: Goals progress

March has been a month, my friends. 1. Move 401ks to IRAs at my bank. Nope. We’re moving in late April or early May, so this will probably be a June thing. 2. Lose 20 pounds. I’m really, really doing it! I’ve been following the eating part of the 21-day fix since the end of January, and I’m down…

February 2016: Goals progress

My year has an extra day to be productive! Thanks Leap Day. 1. Move 401ks to IRAs at my bank. Nope. I’ve collected the majority of my documentation, but I don’t want to move anything financial around until we buy a new house. Otherwise, I have to explain all that, and I’m not interested. 2. Lose 20 pounds….

January 2016: Goals progress

Already 1/12 of the way through 2016. 1. Move 401ks to IRAs at my bank. Nada on this. I’m collecting the documentation to do it, but I haven’t actually made any phone calls or anything. 2. Lose 20 pounds. Right at the end of January, I started doing the 21-day fix — just the food part. Goodness….

2016 goals

Whaaaat, two posts in one day? That’s right! (Am I still putting off packing up my apartment? Maybe!) My 2015 goals were kind of a wash, and I think that comes down to a few things. First, I was busy—like, really busy—at work. I hate when people say that because it sounds as if they’re…

Stephanie’s 2016 Goals

1. 401ks. Move all my old 401(k) accounts into an accessible IRA at my bank, linked to my online dashboard. 2. Lose 20 pounds. For serious. At least make some significant progress. I lost six pounds between Thanksgiving and leaving Dec. 21 for the Florida Keys. I’m ready to do this. 3. Clothing budget of…
