Another failed week. It’s cause my eye wasn’t on the ball. The object of this challenge was to get more money than you already have. I eyed my change jar longingly, wishing I could just turn that into digital money and count it as part of the challenge. But I already have this money.
So, continuing on to earn $10k in the next 52 weeks brings us to Week Two. Thankfully last week I got lucky with an escrow overage check and it boosted up by $33.62. This week’s goal is $150 earned.

This weekend was a caloric nightmare. It started with coffee and donuts in the office. Then me not bringing lunch and eating out instead.
7am Snooze. Alarm ringing in 5 min intervals.
It was a blustery day. Wake and Bake to get my day going. Made coffee and breakfast and listened to chill hop radio on Youtube… it’s really too bad I can’t get the same vibe on Slacker Radio. Completed Barbell Strength class and then worked on my glutes. 20 reps of 3 various leg positions … More Mixed Berry Shortcake
