So many times, it happened too fast you trade your passion for glory.
Don't lose your grip on the dreams of the past you must fight just to keep them alive.
It's the eye of the tiger. It's the thrill of the fight. Risin' up to the challenge of our rival. And the last known survivor stalks his prey in the night. And he's watching us all with the eye of the tiger.
Risin' up straight to the top had the guts, got the glory. Went the distance, now I'm not gonna stop. Just a (wo)man and his (her) will to survive.
That's right - I DID IT! I had the eye of the tiger and I was not going to accept defeat. I posted every single day for all 30 days of November. I realize they weren't all Pulitzer Prize-worthy, but that's not the point Negative Nancy. The point is that I set a goal (trivial, yes, but a goal nonetheless) and I achieved said goal. There were definitely nights I wanted to throw in the towel and just go to bed, but I love a challenge and refused to give in.
Speaking of challenges, did I succeed in the Thanksgiving Challenge or fail miserably? Any guesses? Well if you guessed success, you guessed right! If there's one thing this Frugal Frannie knows how to do, it's how to stretch a dollar. I even passed up Torchy's Tacos this weekend, so you know I was dedicated and not going to fudge the numbers.
Truth be told, I actually came in about a dollar or two under the $70 goal and it definitely made me rethink my trips to the grocery store. I can certainly be more resourceful in terms of my lunches during the workweek and have every intention to continue making batches of soup to last the week. Also worth noting is the incredible, edible egg. They are truly a low budget wonder and got me through many a dinner.
So, I'm going to make the grandiose claim that November was a very productive month. I set not one, but two goals and managed to stay the course and complete both. I shall now give myself the veritable pat on the back and thus conclude this rather pompous post.
