The Plan!

I've been trying to figure out for a while how to motivate myself into exercising more.  I think I might have it figured out.

My goal is to engage in physical activity at least 3 times a week.  This can be an exercise video, a Kinect game, my physical therapy, a one mile bike ride or walk, as long as I move for 15 minutes or more, etc.  At the end of the week, if I meet my goal, I will transfer $2 to my savings account.  This money can be used for whatever I want it for: books, clothes, jewelry, whatever and it will be guilt free (or that's the plan at least).  If I don't make my goal, then all the money I've transferred to that point goes back into my checking account and I start all over again.  If I should manage to exercise more than my goal of 3 times per week, I can add $.50 for each time.

So far this week, I walked a mile to my work and earlier today I did my physical therapy.  I'm not sure if my walk to and from the store 2 blocks away counts, so I need to exercise at least once more this week.  I'll talk to my hubby about hitting the gym on Saturday.  Oh, and I'm counting the week as being Sunday-Saturday.
