Payday update from an MIA blogger

Greetings, all. I apologize for my radio silence this past week. A lot has been going on in the Loonie household, which you might think would mean more stuff to post about, but I honestly just haven't had a lot of mental energy to devote to blogging. I should be able to go into more detail in a few weeks, but in the interim I'll have to ask you to bear with me.

The injection of a paycheque into the old chequing account always seems to reinvigorate me, so I'm happy to pick up the reins of the blog today, and update you on my progress so far. My progress bars and NCN Network chart have been updated with today's payday changes, and I'm so close to bringing my revolving debt under $20,000 that I can taste it. I'm well positioned to hit my target of $19,850 at the end of the month. My Emergency Fund will also come in easily above the target of $1,370, provided it's not needed for an actual emergency this month (touching wood as I type).

I've brought my lunch every single day so far this month, and have also walked to and from work without fail. Both of these behaviours have now become basic habits by this point, which feels good. Making a lunch and walking to work are just parts of what I do in the morning, and I don't even really need to think about them. We'll see how well I stick to the walking thing once the summer temperatures really hit (my thermoregulation is much better suited to winter than summer), but for now I seem to have cracked the nut on these two.

Mid-way through the month, things are looking good.

Good for you! I found your blog when I was looking for "how to make a progress bar" and your post back in January was very helpful. Thank you. I now have a nifty progress bar on my blog.

Keep up the good work!
