So Much Incentive

Tuesday, July 31, 2012

31 day countdown to my 20th wedding anniversary. We are going on a weekend trip to the Steamboat Springs, Colorado area. While we'll spend the first couple of nights at a motel. Then we intend to do one or 2 nights of wilderness camping. emoticon

My incentive is to wear a pretty, feminine dress in a smaller size on that special day. I've always felt "boxy" in a dress so have avoided them for years.

My 2nd incentive is to build up muscle for all the hiking we'll be doing. My exercise has to be tougher than my walks with Leslie Sansone barefoot. I'm going to need to dig out and put on my hiking boots and get moving on some rougher terrain.

We're in week 5 (or is it six?) of the 5% summer challenge. I'm also participating in the weekly challenge (Freggies from the Rainbow) on Feeling Fit Friends, and the 100 day (countdown to election) challenge on FFF and the Pueblo Sparkers.

With all that support it's going to happen!

    Awe. You're going to look so great in that little dress.
You are so focused on your goals. I wish I could be, but that's why I'm hanging out with you on spark.

    Great incentives! I'm positive you will look smashing in that special dress for your groom of 20 years and be ready to hike the days away! I too walk barefoot with Leslie! Haha! It is much harder outside with any shoes on!

    Happy up-coming Anniversary. Your plans sound like a lot of fun. Enjoy your frilly dress. I've heard Colorado can be wonderful, and camping sounds like a lot of fun for just the two of you. emoticon
