//hello september

I am seriously so excited for September. I love Fall and Christmas so this month just marks the beginning of wonderful things!

School has started and is in full force....it's SUPPOSED to be cooling down (San Diego is currently going through a heat wave, however).  This weekend, I am headed to the storage unit to take out our fall decorations...bring on the Pumpkin Spice EVERYTHING!  I can't deny I am VERY basic when it comes to the holidays!

August goals recap:

**$1,175 paid off in debt! That's one entire student loan, plus a hospital bill!  It's such an amazing feeling to be in control of our finances!

**I dropped off the gym wagon...already!  We had family visit, and in addition to the business of life, I just fell off.  I am not a morning person, and I've struggled with waking up early to go to the gym.  However, September is a new month and we are going to start again.  I did lose 2 lbs and 2 inches off my stomach, thanks to endless ground turkey/vegetables/chicken dinners that we prepped for last week!  So something is much, much better than nothing but it's definitely not where I want to be!

September goals:

**Stick to our budget! We just started Dave's "envelope" system, and I'm a little nervous!  Wish us luck...


**Pay off our Amazon Credit Card (this sucker can getcha, especially when you have Prime!)

**Go to the gym/exercise at LEAST three times week (let's try this again!)

**Wake up with Gabriel at 4:45am.  This will give me time to prepare for my day, mentally and physically before Dresden wakes up!  And will help get my booty to the gym.

Happy September, everyone! What are your goals this month?!
