  1. HI, Christie – I love how you focus on physical, intellectual, emotional, relationship and financial fitness. You are incredibly balanced and a true inspiration!

  2. Well done on all fronts, Christie. Great savings found that you can put towards future fun experiences. The Utah Valley 10K course looks scenic and downhill, wow! Enjoy the rest of May!

  3. You introduced me to the idea of a seasonal list and checking things off. And you’re showing me truly how it’s done! Love all the completes. Congrats!! I think your insight into putting fun activities on the list is important…and one I’ll keep in mind for my summer list.

  4. Isn’t it satisfying to be able to check things off a list and see progress… good for you! I love that you have saved some easy money by removing unneeded services. Too many people just allow that to continue just because it’s easier.

    • It is satisfying, Janis. I let those services continue for much longer than I needed them. Then when I decided to terminate, the vendors did not make it easy to do so, but by then it was a matter of principle. I hope all is well with you and that you are enjoying your spring.

  5. Wow, Christie! You’re doing great! I admire your health and fitness goals and the progress you’ve made. That takes determination and hard work, for sure! And hooray for new clothes, saving money, and travel! I’m off now to see where in the world Mazatlan is! Thanks for linking up! I enjoy reading all the updates!

    • Thanks for the encouragement, Michael Ann. One of my favorite things about Mazatlan is the stunning sunsets, and of course, the ocean, since I live in a land-locked state.

  6. I think I am losing my mind. Have thought so for about 50 of my 60 years. But I remember reading your post and thought I remembered commenting. Have been out of town with a sick (adult) daughter and sick toddler grandbaby. Maybe I dreamed that I commented??

    A birthday celebration in Mazatlan is my idea of a good time. And you inspired me (the first time I read this post) to take a close look at my recurring charges. Right now I am not working and really struggling between paychecks. I am afraid my charitable donations may have to be postponed for a bit.

    My daughter gave me a light kit several years ago. I have found it to be just perfect for my uses and it was quite affordable on Amazon. This is the link: https://www.amazon.com/CowboyStudio-Photography-Portrait-Umbrella-Continuous/dp/B003WLY24O/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1527824484&sr=8-1&keywords=cowboy+light+kit

    Looks like the price has gone up! But it has been a good kit!

    What color analysis did you use? Love the outfit you purchased. That top is right up my alley.

    • I know that feeling Leslie! I’m pretty sure I lost my mind a long time ago. 🙂 It’s so easy to let those recurring charges just keep on recurring long after the service is needed. And they don’t usually make it that easy to turn it off, but it’s worth it. Thanks for the recommendation on the light kit. I did the color analysis online at http://www.style-yourself-confident.com. She has you submit photos and answer an online questionnaire. I was pleased with the process and the results.
