I didn’t do a goals update for June because I was terrible about making progress towards my goals in June. July was a much better month. My first goal of not acquiring any new debt other than student loans is still being met. This one is pretty easy to meet. I made some progress towards my goal of losing 20 pounds. After gaining 8 pounds earlier this year I’m now back to my original weight. I’ll now need to lose 20 pounds in six months rather than a year. This is doable but I’m going to have to put a lot more effort into it. I did make good progress on improving my blog. I started the Frugal Blog Network and I was featured twice on the Smart Spending blog at MSN.com.
