August is over so it’s time for something new.
The monthly review.
The one important thing that I learned during my time at big blue was
track your progress or you will get lost.
Sounds very simple, but it’s sometimes as easy to forget.
So I am going to do this each month from now on.
****Only 3 posts this month
Not as many as I had planned, but I stuck to it and did at least some.
August started off pretty slow with the Twitter post.
I did manage to get the twitter followers from 6 to 66,
without degrading myself to buy followers.
The Fixed vs Flexible was a money related post.
I had it in me for a very long time, but never found the words.
And – I did track my spendings during August,
well I tracked the flexible ones, but that’s a good start.
(More on that further below.)
The 1 Push-Up a Day post was about slowly starting to get my (and your) fitness back.
I did 1 push-up every day for the last three month and it’s starting to pay.
Well, I just realized that I forgot my daily push-up today.
Maybe I should use the Dots to track that too.
****As I said above: August 2011 was the first month where I tracked my flexible spending.
I might have missed a few leaks, but the overall picture should be in the right ballpark.
Well, it doesn’t look too good
My felxible spending in August 2011 was: 2061.09 Euro
Yes, that includes the 500 Euro for the Contour+ I had wanted for a long time.
It includes a 340 Euro car repair, which was a total rip off.
And it includes the 300 Euro sponsoring for an art event that I have sponsored for the last four years,
but even 921 Euro are a little bit more than I expected.
I will keep an eye on that and see how it works out.
****I managed to do a little exercising this month, including 1 push-up a day.
I managed to keep an eye on what I eat (more on that in another post).
And I gained 2 kilos (~4.4 pounds), I really hope that’s all muscles.
Write more articles.
Yes, I have quite a few ideas, but I simple don’t follow through with them.
There are some changes upcoming that should help make things easier,
but it will be a while until all that is done.
