I’ve been pretty bad this week...but I think I’m just going to allow this to be a cheat week :P I’m literally just studying super dry insurance text books and videos this whole work week to try and pass my licensing exam. I need the extra food and sugar to keep my energy levels up!!

Well I have another temp job:( sigh it's the same company that let me go. I am in a completely different department. It's a bit depressing and I need something to pay Bill's. It's going to be super hard today:( it's only a temp job. It us to have a possibility for full time, but my luck with temps it never happens and really dont want it to happen. I did just have an interview so in Hope's something.

I really want to be my own boss. I would love crafting and doing the fair thing. Any advice?

So... been completely unsuccessful so far.
Super depressed this time of year, makes it difficult for me to do anything beyond go to work and get the basics accomplished.

I went off my low-inflammation diet for 2 weeks and gained 15lbs (mostly water weight) So I've spent this week going back to being strict with my eating and getting the inflammation out of my body. I think it should help with my mood too. I'll definitely be happy to just not have gained by the end of this healthy pony, even though Id like to lose about 8 more lbs since I started my diet on 4/27/18.

I do feel a bit better so far focusing on eating healthy. And have gotten more typical tasks done around the house like keeping up with laundry and dishes.

I'm hoping to be motivated to list and sell my unwanted MLP stuff. Ive got a bunch of PE accessories from a lot, as well as handful of G2s (since I splurged on some rarer ones) I'm going to a game convention (PAX) in a few weeks and Id love to have some extra spending money.

I was about to do a poor me pouty post, but I decided positive will be more affective. I hear the not motivated, not doing well, but you really are! You took the time to post! You took the time to think about your goals! You took the time to dream, and a million dreams we are going to make:) 

So you did it:) be happy it's a step in the right direction:)

Ok here is my life. Hubby and I are hard working people. We pay bills on time. Eat little when we have no money for food, if we have money we save, but we are in an apartment. Rent is higher than a house payment, but sadly no bank gave us a loan for a house. We only wanted a 1 bedroom home. We moved for my job that promised more than what was delivered (sadly not in writing) and then lost my job. So we have lost a lot of savings this year. We couldn’t get a house loan even though we have A plus credit. In short broke. Sigh we get by. We might have to move back in with the in-laws in June if something doesn’t change. We have till June.

This is not to bring pity or sadness, I am stating this as I am doing what I can to save money. So I am clearing out anything I can. Meaning I need to sell. Because I love my Healthy Pony Peeps, I am offering big discounts for you. If you see my trades/sales or want something custom down, you get a special discount. Just tell me what you want and put Healthy Pony in the pm subject. If anyone is not in healthy pony and does this, they get a fun discount too:)

I may never save enough for a down payment on a home, but if I could collect some funding I can get help from my family.

Well I fell of the wagon big time.

I am challenging myself. I am going 40 days with out spending money...in my dark, depressed and very scared state I ran off twice to buy fast food. A horrible thing I have been doing for years. I was close to beating it, but I feel my addiction is similar to smoking. You do really well get a taste a small a panic and you just want one last puff/taste...and you fall off.

Well no more. Today is not my day 1. It is my day 0. We have 40 days left. I will count the days and hope I can go 40 days and not spend anything! I challenge myself. No matter what has happend I will report. I will live others as they post as this is healthy pony. Trying to be the best you, and trying different ways to do so.

Even if I do this alone, I will suceed. I will keep this going, as healthy pony keeps me from doing the worst to myself!

We are half way through, it is time to try!!!!

Photo contest is going on !!! Please enter!

I’m here I’ve just had so much going on lately that I’m completely unmotivated. :(  I’m still filling my motivation jar though.

Day 1.

This should be an easy day, as I have no car. It's my day off so my hubby has the car. I am doing something fun and then making a list of what to do today to stay busy. My big one is his all my cash in a wallet my husband sees. I will feel less desire to spend when that is our save for house fund.

Right now I want to ask for pizza...I just got done with breakfast:( I know it's my stress and emotions that causes this issue. It stems from a lot of bullying and since I am away from all the bullies, I almost I feel I want to bully myself....sad how much one can learn about themselves.

Alright day one...

I really want to save up for a house, so I am having a huge sale on my wings. I am making more of them too:) gotta make room.

Giving you all a heads up. I need to save space so I am having a huge sale on all my wings! My eBay will not show it, but any wing you offer on eBay or on the arena is only $5 plus shipping. This will last for 20 days:) I also combine shipping. Other items will get discounted in the future too.

I did it...day 1. I have to go to the post. I need the power to not give in...sigh.

I sincerely hope things start to turn up for you soon Crowning_Glory13! I know you’ll be able to remain strong through all of is though! :hug: I’ve been saving up some of my smaller good day rewards to get some wings from you, so once I get my paycheck on Friday I’ll definitely be doing some shopping ;)

As for my progress I’m a little frustrated with myself. So close to so many 10/10 days this week, but I seem to always be over my calorie budget by about 50 calories!  :sad: I’m getting in so many more steps and active minutes than I used to though, so that’s good! I’m hoping if I can push that just a little more that might fix my calorie problem too! :P

Minty magic you are amazing....you have been close to your goals and almost have daily 10s!!!! That is so amazing. I am so proud of you.

Now you know what is holding you from a 10 and now you can strive for it! So amazing and it warms my heart. I sometimes feel I should give up healthy pony, and then your story comes by and I feel so glad I keep it going.

Day 2. Doing ok. I had to drive to the post, and no desire to stop anywhere. I ate breckfast late, and tried to leave early...so one bullet down. But it is reaching a second. I am feeling hungry and sad, so I know it’s an emotional deal. I am making some tea to help calm me and fight the urge.

I can do this.

Minty Magic, if there is a wing you want or a design you would like made I can hold for you too. With me putting them on sale, I would hat a desired wing be missed by you. Or I can start the design process while we wait...I think you are in my photo contest too. So you just might win it too:)

Keep trying everyone’s!

I got down day 2!

Now I have no cash in my purse. (I use cash because I can hid my crap addiction from my hubby) but I do get sneaky.

I work tomorrow and it's not a harmonious situation....very stressed and fearful of a lot of thing. I have 5 days left, until my new job starts. We are so tight on funds I have to stick it out.....so here is hoping I have a day 3

Well I made day 3...kind of. I bought nothing for me but coffee for my coworkers they might pay me back, but I felt It was a nice thing to do:)

Post Merge: March 16, 2019, 12:02:26 AM

Well I bought a coffee today it was kind if a payback to someone who got me a coffee. So I am ok with that. I almost faultered but resisted today....

We moved the last week of June, and now we get notified that we need to tell them by Wed if we stay or not. So now it's up in the air on the life of my family. I picked up a temp job since I lost mine. I do what I can to make/save money when I can. We have lost a lot of our savings and it's a toss on moving back to the inlaws or find a new apartment as we cant afford this one anymore.

I am just sad because my hubby stated he looked forward to living in the area. But he feels he cant find a job worth it to stay...I dont think he has looked much....sigh I can only say so much.

My new official job starts Thursday, so if I do really well we might just find a different area to live...but fear having to sign a year by most apartments require as no back will give us a loan and no funds for a deposit...

Just going to relax and hope an answer comes to me:/

To be on a lighter side...I have to go to the bathroom so bad but my 2 cats are snuggling on my lap in all cuteness

You can do this, I believe in you!  :cheer: Although things may be bad right now, that means a positive change has to be around the corner! The tough part is just making it through the storm. Since you guys need to move and haven’t had luck finding jobs in the area you’re in now, maybe this is just an opportunity to find a dream job in a different area! :) No matter what we’re all rooting for you here!

I’ve been doing pretty good with my exercise lately! My coworkers have become aware that I’m trying to get in more steps so they are holding me accountable now. :P Anytime we’re on break they always ask how many laps I’ve taken around the floor or how many stairs I’ve climbed. Some days I might even get someone to circle the floor with me on one of our breaks! :lol: It’s definitely kept my motivation up!

Now I just need to pass my licensing exam on Tuesday and I’ll be officially promoted to my new role! ^.^

I'm sick, I'm tired, I have a second job interview with the other company I interviewed with last month and a LONG workday to look forward to after that!
oh yeah they emailed me, last minute last week, to see if I had some time to "drop by and chat." they had told me March 4th at latest so I thought I was not in the running anymore.  now I get this.  Oh... great.
Did I mention I have already had to buy a new car for this job I am working?

oh and we had MAJOR DRAMA LLAMA with family members over the weekend.

early spring is the season of change.... ahhhhhhh....

Hugs squirmy. We are both on a storm. I will be doing extra prayers for us all. Day 4 is down and so is day 5. Hubby has the car so I can go any where and Ihave the day of! So if I want to buy fast food I have to walk...yeah no. Day #6 have to hit the post office so it could be a test.

Well our apartment wants us out by May...and we have no clue what to do. We have time to think but not much.

Long time no post. :P
Things sound really rough for you, Glory, but I know you are strong and can fight whatever life throws at you!
I've been so-so at budgeting but I've been focusing more on eating what is good for my gut. I was able to pick out plenty of low-acidity foods when I helped grocery shop and I'm looking forward to helping out with the next grocery trip. I did eat some questionable foods lately but if I take tums I'm usually alright.
