I believe it was a post from Spark Coach Nicole that encouraged us who are coming back to exercise to set a goal of going 14 days in a row. I had been doing well exercising but let myself go for a little over two weeks now. I started back to the gym doing cardio today, but i did not have a specific goal in mind. Well that has changed now, I have a simple goal in mind thanks to Spark. Starting today I am going to exercise 14 days in a row, as per Coach Nicole and Spark. This is day 1, which leaves 13 to go. I'm going to define exercise as at least 30 minutes either of cardio, strength training on machines at the gym, videos here on Spark, or a workout with my Wii Biggest Loser game. Now my question is what, or even if, I should give myself when I make my goal. One thing is certain, I'm not going to make food a reward. No, I'm thinking along the lines of buying myself a nice pen for use at work. I'd also consider a book, but more often than not I use the library for my books. Please feel free to leave suggestions for a self reward or perhaps even if a self reward after this goal is a bad idea.
