Good day: Woohoo Jar, Reward for Onederland & New Shoes!

Thursday, January 10, 2013

Today was just a good day. emoticon Walked 2 miles at the mall with bro to get some exercise in, I'm in range, made some delicious turkey meatballs, today is definitely a good one.

I don't know if you guys have seen this idea floating around, apparently it's on facebook, pinterest and all of that. But I saw that a fellow sparker BogusAnnie is making a Woohoo jar! She has a vlog on it if you want to check out the details, it's basically a jar where you write down good or happy things that happen throughout the year. Then at the end of the year you can open it and read through all the good things that have happened. Or, if you are feeling down and need a pick me up, looking through the jar and reading it could be very inspiring. I think it would be a great way to record those NSV's and just happy things in everyday life that we feel good about in the moment but forget about them shortly after. I got some cute paper and stickers from the store, and I decided to use this candle holder I had at home. I love pumpkins because it reminds me of Fall/Halloween/Cinderella which I love love love, so that seems perfect for a emoticon jar!

I decided my reward for getting to Onederland was an Ipod Touch 5... Target had a deal where if you bought it this week, you could get a $30 Target gift card. I couldn't pass this up so I got it today. It is at my brothers house and he has strict orders not to give it to me until I get to 199, and he means business! emoticon I really want it, and I don't have a fancy smart phone so this is going to be my coolest gadget yet. Plus I will use it at work when I walk my laps, woohoo.

Got some new work shoes that are great for walking, super excited about that. It doesn't take much to make me happy these days. emoticon

I hope everyone is having a nice week! emoticon

    I have a jar. I already have a few things in it. I get to add that I got on the Silver Spies today! Totally stoked! Woot! Yay for you on your reward! You will have it in no time!!!!
Oh! And I hope you dont mind, I totally am stealing the tracking idea you have for weigh ins for BLC to put on my spark page. I've been trying to figure out where to put it, and I saw your format, and love it! If you do mind, send me a message and I wont do it! (Imitation is the highest form of flattery ;-) )

    emoticon Keep your eye on the prize! You know where it is and you have the visual to keep you keeping on until it is YOURS! How great that you have your brother on your side and your spark and BLC friends too. What an awesome support system. You will be rockin' that pink iPod Touch SOON in ONEderland!

I have a January Jar and did a blog on it. I got the idea from another sparker who did one too. This idea in one form or the other is infectious for sure! Maybe we can have a party on 12/31 and open them "together" and celebrate a year FULL of FUN and magically memorable moments!

Bring it!

    Sometimes it takes just a little bit more motivation to get to that certain goal. I'm excited for you to hit Onederland soon.. and I can bet you are overly excited now. Before I hit it, I felt like it wasn't such a huge deal.. but when I hit it, something just clicked and it felt like a HUGE achievement. Glad you could get your brother involved so there is no way you are getting it without achieving some goals!

    What a great idea that WooHoo jar is. I think it would be very rewarding and motivating, especially when you begin to start doubting why you are here. Hope you have a good day.
