Down to $150/workout

Monday, March 09, 2009

Today I started on my next workout streak. $1 in the jar. $4 to go. It was my second workout of my $300 membership; so it has brought down the average cost of the workout to $150!.

9 March: $2 towards weekly goal of $5. That also brings the average daily cost of my gym membership to $100.

10 March: $3 towards weekly goal of $5. That also brings the average daily cost of my gym membership to $75.

11 March: $4 towards weekly goal of $5...thanks to an extra long boxing session. But, it was outside of the gym.

12 March: off; time to color the naps.

13 March: Last of the week's workout is scheduled today to bring in my $5 and I'll double it. This means I'll have 5 workouts at the gym and my average cost will be $60.

Done. That is 225 for this week!

I finally got back to the gym. I bought a two year memberships for $300 (thanks Costco) But, as I've only done one workout, that workout cost me $300. But, I'm back to rewarding myself with $1 per workout. Soon, I'll have a pot full of cash to spend on something great! I am starting to enjoy tracking my achievements. I get the 'streak' mentality.


a step back

Wednesday, March 04, 2009

Working out with a gym membership has not worked. My membership lapsed and my schedule became more intense. My chores are piling up and I haven't worked out. Today, I had a doctor's visit. Since I had gained five pounds from the last visit a year ago, she advised me to lose weight. Ay Ay, I thought no one had noticed the extra pounds. Well, I know what I have and haven't done. I did lose momentum at the end of last year. I haven't recovered and I need to turn it up again. I will reinstate my membership within the week. That is my new goal....


Two Week Streak

Monday, February 23, 2009

Rewards and streaks have kept me motivated for the last two weeks. I've make $20 in rewards! But, next week I enter a challenging time. I will be taking some classes. One class is a PE class that will only require a couple of hours class time. But, the other class, a music class will require me find time to practice. This combination of commitments will require real planning. I need to schedule how I use my time very carefully. On top of that I need to be even more careful about my food choices as I will have to cut down my workouts from five times a week to four times. I'm already feeling heart palpitations of stress. emoticon

p.s...once we get going the PE classes will count as a workout. Yay.
