Pad Your pockets ~ 52 Week Savings Challenge

Are you ready to take the Pad Your Pockets 2014 Challenge?!?!?

We've seen these before. We've all wanted to do it. But what happened?
Too much commitment to deposit a larger sum of money at the END of the year when the money is even tighter? That wouldn't work for me - I need every extra penny I have during the holidays to spoil my boy!!
I liked the fact that money is put aside for your savings, for a rainy day, for a trip....hmmmm...I'm sure you can name a couple of things worth saving for. But the "other challenges" seemed to come up short.

I like the idea that this challenge brings you OVER the $1500 mark.
Boo-ya! Fifteen Hundred Bucks. Now we are talking!

Take a look at the chart above. See that we start out making a larger deposit working our way down. Now, the difference with this challenge is that we are not depositing $1 at a time, at any time. I figured since we have built our new savings habit, that we should keep it rolling without insulting ourselves with a measly single digit deposit - we are worth more than that. 
From Week 33 - 47, it's a $20 deposit, then we are taking it down to $10 deposits for the last 5 weeks of the year. This keeps our new saving habit alive and well, while taking our savings total higher!! Oh and P.S.... the balance you see above does NOT include interest! So, if you manage to have or find a savings account that has a great interest rate, well....you'll be even richer!  While I am no financial advisor, I would recommend looking into opening a Tax Free Savings Account (for my fellow Canadians, anyway!)

Manageable!

Go on. Pad your pockets!!

30 Day Challenge

I am not an athlete. I am not a professional. I am simply someone who wants to get off the couch and make some changes. Who wants to join me!? Start whenever you like, but don't give up!

Right click to save, and print! Cross off each day as completed! We can do this!!






































As noted above, I am not a trainer, athlete or even good at getting my ass on the treadmill when I know I should.  I have made this chart to give myself a challenge, and would love if you joined me. By sharing it with you, I am assuming that you already know what squats, push ups and planks are. If you don't know the proper form for these, I highly suggest googling them.
Print the challenge up, tape to your bedroom door (or anywhere else you'll see it daily to keep you motivated) and cross off each day with RED marker. You've done it! Woot! Woot!
Be sure to take base line measurements and weight. And if you are brave enough, photos!!!  Use the bottom area to make notes such as what you are eating (ie gluten free, clean, etc.) and any other exercise you are doing, if any.  Please feel free to leave me any comments and I will do my best to answer any questions. Good luck and have fun!

An Ode to my Uterus



On Thursday April 4th, 2013, I had a partial hysterectomy. This came after MUCH thought and deliberation. This will mean a better quality of life, fuller enjoyment of life and more time with my family!! Today, 4 days after surgery, I am resting at home, very comfortable, and basking in the love, health and healing I am feeling!!

So here it is.....

Ode to my Uterus



Today I say good bye

The feeling bitter-sweet

To an old friend, an organ,

Between my boobs and feet.



Today I reminisce

On the days we spent together

Of the times we spent indoors, in bed

Regardless of the weather.



The pain of monthly visits

You brought without fail,

The joy of bi-weekly agony

I would wave the white sail.



Before I say good-bye to you

There is one thing you should know

I am truly full of gratitude

For the son you did bestow.



I do not begrudge you

Poor bloated little uterus,

But I am happy to be healing

Now that you are out of us.



So in closing I say to you,

To the organ I have no longer

Farewell, so long, Adieu and

Thank you for making me stronger.
