Money and Fitness

I've signed up to work with my trainer again. The package last for 6 months. The money for the trainer needs to come from another area of my cash flow, without messing with my Sallie Mae pay off flow.
Recently made a phonecall to Sallie Mae just to make sure she's doing right with my money.

No Thank You Chase

I bought my apt in 2009. The mortgage is a 30 year fixed at 5.00% APR. Today I received a call from Chase Bank asking me to come in to talk about my options. What options???? huh??? Bye?? Not interested. Refinancing isn't something I'm looking to do right now. My financial focus is Sallie Mae and my cc. More so, Sallie Mae. After that my focus will be maxing out my IRA and putting more into my pension.


Operation pay off Sallie Mae is still on target. The checks are going out on a weekly basis. I keep following up to make sure the payments are posted properly.

I've been exercising. Zumba, Jazzercise and West African dance. The great thing is these classes are not costing me too much out of pocket. Jazzercise was courtesy of BK over at The Fit Family Lounge.

My electric and gas bill is down by over 60%. Why the drastic drop you ask? Winter is over, my nieces are in Florida and the AC hasn't been on too often. Energy and dollars saving all around.

There are still a few projects to do around my apt: paint, buy more furniture, plants, flowers etc. These will be done in stages.
