My planned reward for reaching my goal has always been an adult trike. I know that might sound silly, but I had one when I was 12 years old. I used it to haul recycling into town. That's how I got some pocket money. It was extremely useful...and would be today. I could use it to go to my local grocery store and farmers' market. I could go fetch my morning latte by peddling my way to Starbucks, instead of hopping in the car, wasting gas, and missing a calorie-burning opportunity.
But I haven't reached my goal yet...and I don't work during the Summer. Money is alway tight during the Summer months. Spending $500 on a bike would be difficult to justify. I was really counting on reaching my goal before my Summer break.
Not reaching my goal yet...along with stress caused by my work and family have really messed up Sparking this week. I need to knuckle down, but my planned reward seems increasingly remote.
