So like most women I have read the novel 50 Shades of Grey. I have to be honest that it is not very well written but I think that everyone knows that. I am not a crazy fan geek for the novel but I had an idea while reading it yesterday. 50 Shades of Sweat, My own personal contract with myself. Below are the rules and consequences of my contract
1 Wake up at 7
2 Eat Banana before exercise (or other fruit)
3 Exercise for 30-40 mins
4 Enjoy Work-(I HAVE JOBS)
5 Keep a clean life (appearance as well as living space)
6 Write down what I eat (Needing continual practice)
7 Drink 8 pints of water a day
8 Keep trying, even if I break rules 1-7
The Rules Explained
Rule 1- Wake up at 7
At no point in the rest of my adult life will I ever be able to sleep in till 9 or 10. I would like children, and children do not sleep past 7 (well not till they are teenagers anyway). If I have no reason to wake up at 7 I will make one up!
Consequence- Well this has natural consequences I will be messed up the whole day!
Rule 2- Eat a Banana before workout
Well this does not have to be a banana it can be an orange or apple, just something to get my metabolism working before my workout. It makes me less hungry as well as feeling good before my workout!
Consequence- Being hungry during my workout and possibly stopping
Rule 3- Workout 30-40 mins
Now this is not everyday because I believe I would be pooped! But If I strive to do this everyday than I will be sure to do it at least 5 times a week! It does not have to be vigorous, just something that gets me going!
Consequence-not working out leads to not being healthy and I want to be healthy
Rule 4- Enjoy Work!
This life changing experience can be positive in all areas! I want to enjoy my work so I will try and make that happen each day!
Consequence- Not enjoying work leads to not being happy...and I want to be happy!
Rule 5-Keeping a clean life!
I have never been the one to look exceptionally pretty, but since I have changed what I have been putting in my body I am beginning to feel great about myself and I want to look better! I want to wear nice clothes, and shoes! To maybe even get contacts!
Consequence- I would not be living up to my potential and thats just not ok
Rule 6- Write down everything I eat
I have found this great! I can keep up with what I am eating and make sure its all healthy for me!
Consequence- Not writing down what I eat would lead to going to MCDS everyday!
Rule 7- Drink lots of water
This is a rule I am glad I am making, I have issues in this area. DRINK DRINK DRINK WATER
Consequence- When I dont drink water...my consequence is going to be to drink water. This way I am drinking water!
Rule 8- Keep trying
Ah the most important rule, the fact is I might not stick to my rules everyday...but this one will always bring me back
Consequence- not being happy...and lets face it, I am ready to be happy!
