2. I almost gave in and went for a trial run on the treadmill last night before my spin class. I even brought my running shoes with me which I usually leave at home so I don't get crazy and actually run. I was thinking about it all day and but resisted the urge. I wasn't really in the mood to be in the saddle last night but I forced myself to go anyway. I think I kept my eye on the clock the whole time and couldn't wait for the class to be over. Not good..I know.
3. Today I have my annual performance evaluation at work. I think it is going to go well but I get nervous anyway. Sitting one on one with my boss for an hour and listening to what he really thinks of my performance makes me a little nervous. The good news is that I will get a raise if all goes well! I have to admit that I have a great job and I feel really lucky to be in the position that I am in. Sometimes I feel like I don't really deserve the job that I have so I am thankful for it everyday. So once I get the house refinanced and my new raise kicks in, I will have more money to spend on races, Lululemon running skirts and a vacation. Just Kidding! I am a little smarter than that. I am actually looking forward to stashing more money away for a rainy day or paying a little extra on my mortgage every month. You never know what life is going to deal you at any given time!
Are you a saver or a spender?
I have my moments but I think I am "financially smart" for the most part. I definitely know my limits. I use my credit cards for everything because I like to see my reward points build up and then I use them to get extras like my Starbucks cards. My rule is that I have to pay my credit cards off monthly and if I cannot then I am over spending and cannot afford it!
