It’s been a great day so far. I painted my nails, took a shot at waxing my own eyebrows (for the first time – woohoo!), did some other strategic hair removal and a little bit of housework, and now I’m getting ready to grab my things and head off to yoga class in about 20 minutes. Before I get into my sports bra, I wanted to take a second to jot down some thoughts about the rewards system I’m going to build to help me stick with this weight loss plan this time around.
If you’ve been reading Compass & Quill, you’ll know by now that I’m a shoe fanatic. I love them. I obsess about them – especially finding comfortable shoes that are also stylish and hip. Right now I’m thinking that I should set a weight loss goal, and if I can reach that goal and stay at or under that number for a week, I get a new pair of shoes. What do you guys think? Am I being too easy on myself – should my goal be to stay at or under the number for a longer amount of time? Or if I have multiple goals in mind, say a pair of shoes at 155, a new dress at 150, a new pair of jeans at 145, do you think my plan will work (assuming diet and exercise remain my constant)?
I want you guys to be a part of this, too. After I figure out my goal points (I’m thinking every four pounds to give myself something to look forward to), I’ll start picking out a few items that I would love to have, and present them as a poll here on the site. Essentially, you guys will be choosing my reward for me! Sound cool? I think so 🙂
