Positive Rewards

Saturday, January 16, 2010

Last night and today we were out of town for my daughters Hip Hop compitition. They will now be going to Las Vegas in April!!!! They did awesome!!!!!! :o) :o)

So anyone that is farmilular with my goals may know that I allow myself a "free" day I guess you would call it. One that I don't have to track or can go over within reason. Well I have been wanting to get a two of Jillians books that I have read the samples of, I was talking with Trever on Friday about wanting to get them since they were $10 each. He was talking about some stuff he wanted to get for his salt water tank too. So we came up with a great plan. If we stayed on track Friday that we could get one of the things we wanted, and if we stayed on plan today we could get the other thing. :o)

Instead of getting the things we set small goals to get them :o) Proudly I would like to say that we both earned both rewards !!!! Yeah !!!! The best part is that we probably would have spent almost that much had we not stayed on plan due to the food being so expensive. We brought our own snacks so we knew the calories and we didn't really go out for desert. :o) A win/win for us!!!!!!! We also got lucky and saved $5 on parking for walking a block further where it was $10. Then when we left they were charging $20 a spot where we were parked instead of $5. WOW

So today was a great day, I hope everyone elses day was too!!!!!! Oh yeah how could I forget I got up at 5:45 a little over an hour before everyone and went down to the hotels gym and did intervals on the treadmill for an hour going four miles then another half mile when I got home !!!!!!! Also they made me go up a hula hoop on stage, I learned that I can only hula hoop on the Wi. HA ha ha ha !!!!! I'm sure it was very funny. Here are a couple pics from today

    The girls look adorable! Thanks for posting the pictures. What an exciting event.
    I like how you handled your food and traded in eating more expensive stuff for rewards!
    Yay for the treadmill!
