David and I decided to change up the rewards. Every week that I meet my goals, I will reward myself with $10 for crafty-goodness (or anything else I choose). Also, there will be separate larger rewards when I hit predetermined milestones.
As far as participants, there is a sweet little gal that lives with me that also wants to share her weekly progress.
Week 1 Rundown:
Thank you to those that are supporting and encouraging me. I really appreciate it! My first week was successful. I did make it to the gym twice. Even though it has been about 9 months since I have worked out, it didn't go as bad as I thought it would. I definitely am not able to do as much as I did when I stopped going, but it was a great start. I really want to make sure I don't push it too hard, I don't want to end up with plantar fasciitis again. I worked out both times on the elliptical. Also, I did great at making better food choices as well. I am usually a junk food junkie but really didn't have that desire during Week 1. All but one meal I ate was homemade, so points could be tracked and portions/ingredients controlled. The only meal I ate out was a very healthy one.
