Ok, so time to distract myself from the food orgy that is currently happening on my tv right now. I did NOT get on my treadmill last night - family on the phone kept me from getting my run in. However, I did get down to my fitness dungeon today and did do my 3.5 miles as per the schedule. Tomorrow I have to get in 3 miles and then 5.5 on Sunday. Hopefully my legs don't give me the middle toe and tell me where to shove it!
I've been toying with a few incentive plans for my runs. I'm a person who likes pretty things. I like new things and since I don't feel comfortable buying new clothes when I'd have to buy them in a size that I'd never like to see ever again hanging in my closet, I've had to come up with a new plan of attack. In the past I've rewarded myself with lots of different things. I tried bribing myself with the lure of new shoes. That failed. I tried food rewards (I know SO counterproductive!) Obviously none of these plans worked so, of course I started creeping Pinterest to see what I could find there!
Some people were paying themselves money, some people were using complicated colour coded charts and some people were just talking about what everybody else was doing! Sooooo, the question is, which incentive route do I pick? I'm leaning towards the financial incentive plan where I pay myself a toonie every time I run and watch the jar fills up. The ultimate goal is to go into LuluLemon and buy this:
