$300 just for working out!

Saturday, February 20, 2010

Yesterday I got a wonderful surprise.... $300 just for working out.

In January, I turned the big 30, and at the beginning of the year, I decided to whole heartedly jump into an exercise and healthy eating plan. I decided that I was going to get myself into the best shape of my life, and possibly find some new doors of opportunity to open. I began eating healthy, and cooking at home as often as possible. I also started the P90X workout plan on Jan 2. I've really stuck to my plan, and I've been doing very well (on Valentines day, i even fit myself in to a dress that I haven't worn in probably 4 years or more). WooHoo!

My P90X package also came with a membership to , where they have a WYWO (Work Out With You) gym. The idea is to track your workouts online and find other people with similar goals and work out plans as yourself. Every day that you enter your workouts on the site, you are entered in to a Daily Sweepstakes were you can win prizes like iPods, digital cameras, portable DVD players, and CASH.

So, fast forward to Yesterday... I received a very surprising email notifying me that I was the winner of the most recent drawing, and I will be receiving $300! Lemme get this straight.... I did something good for my health and body,and they're going to give me money for it? I'M IN!!!!

Recently, I was starting to feel a little bit of burn out (could also have a bit to do with Tech week at the theater), and I was really starting to dread working out each day (but I still forced myself). Now, all of a sudden this good fortune has really boosted my motivation to keep going! After all, just because I won, doesn't mean I cant win again. I just have to keep pushing play! And, even if I don't win another daily drawing, i know I'm still going to be a winner because I'm improving myself.

Here's to opening new doors!!!!
