Okay this sounds weird but I decided that I can give myself goals and for every daily goal I accomplish, put a quarter in the weight loss jar. Also, for every mile I walk a day in excess of my goals. I started at 192 and got on a slippery slope after I reached 188 and decided spice things up by adding my daily reward to be used at certain milestones (like each 10lbs.).
Weekly Goals for May two fruits a day = .25 Vegtable 1x a day = .25 5,000 a Week = .25 (per 1,000) Strength training 1x weekly = .25 (per 15 min.) Zumba 1x weekly = .25 (per 15 min. of class) Water aerobics 1x weekly = .25 (per 15 min.)
