May 2012 Net Worth

This is a little post I like to call, "Let's pretend April never happened."  Not only did I spend more money than I even care to calculate, I also diverged heavily from my eating plan, which up until then had been working like gangbusters.  Goals for May: stop buying coffee and junk during the workday, recommit to the plan, and spend less on going out.

Oh yeah, and I turned 28.  So help me, God.
