Weight Loss Goals and Rewards

It's that time again and here they are.

Ideally I would like to lose 10 pounds a month, but I am setting my goal at 5.

Okay, these are the rewards(trying to save money so I am being creative and incorporating my healthier eating choices)...

Every 5 pounds -- 1 scrapbook crop

Every 10 pounds -- craft purchase

Every 15 pounds -- massage

Every 20 pounds -- new article of clothing

First 25 pounds -- spa day.

Weight loss goal -- 60 pounds. That is 12 scrapbook crops, 6 scrapbooking purchases , 4 massages, 3 new articles of clothing and 2 spa days.

Exercise rewards.....

5 times a week(later 3) at decided time -- polished toes (every 2 weeks)

15 minutes straight running -- regular pedicure

30 minutes straight running -- spa pedicure

I also want to start particpating in runs and walks. I may need to adjust this if I feel I can do more or need to do less. I am planning on doing half during weeks when Aunt Flo visits. I am also planning to alternate the walking between my neighborhood and the track at the park next to school for awhile, just for variety.


Who else had a weightloss and/or fitness goal for the New Year?

Those are great rewards and goals Robyn! Don't stress too if you get off plan for exercise; just go right back on it and tweak it as you start doing it to what works best for you and your schedule! Come Monday I'm going to start eating healthier; no snacks, more veggies. Been going to the gym somewhat regularly, so going to make sure it is 5 times a week. We can get healthy and fit this year!
