Debt Update - 2/15/19 - Another tough month life wise

February 17th, 2019 at 09:48 pm

$1071.51 paid off in the last 2 weeks!!!

Today was Day 77 of P90X!! Tomorrow will be one month until our next trip to Laughlin, and 3 of our favorite casino friends are coming too! I would really like to lose 9 more lbs and then I will have lost 10% of my weight since giving birth. MO and I had a little side bet that if either of us loses 10% (this was over a course of 3 1/2 months) that we get extra bonus money for the trip. NINE MORE LBS.....its gonna be tough but I am trying my hardest. I worked out twice yesterday and twice today (may do another one tonight just cause it's something to do to keep my mind off of things). I know my real struggle is the eating part, specifically my terrible Coke addiction. I am only have 1 a day, but am going to try 0 tomorrow. Would be awesome if I could do no pop or alcohol till the trip, but I love my Coke!

February has been another tough month as the twins were "due" 2/22/19. The best man at our wedding had his 3rd child a few days ago and when we had found out that both wives were pregnant and due dates were so close we were so excited for our kids to grow up together and be best buddies. I feel terrible that I had to unfollow both of them on FB because I can't handle seeing all the new baby pics. I broke down yesterday while I was on the treadmill and couldn't stop crying, one of my poor puppy girls tried to climb on and comfort me and ate it hard. So I sat down and she attacked me with kisses. So thankful for my husband and my puppers.

MO and I had a nice weekend in Deadwood last weekend. I had lots of good hits and bonuses and lots of drinks. It was great to get away and enjoy each other with out all the normal distractions. I ended up $100 ahead but MO lost (it's usually the other way around), but overall a cheap getaway.
