August Goals

To understand my thought process behind my goals, you must be aware of my motivation. To learn more about my motivation please read my $$ Money is My Motivator $$ blog. www.sparkpeople.c

I have decided to pay myself for exercising! I don’t have a lot to spare (you will know that if you read the other blog), but I think I can pull this off, heck I know I can!

This is my daily exercise routine & yes, I found this on Pinterest! Feel free to follow me (Patriciaintx).
* 10 Push-Ups
* 10 Sit-Ups
* 25 Squats
* 10 Lunges Per Leg / 20 Total
* 50 Jumping Jacks
* 30 Second Plank
* 60 Second Wall Sit

As the month progresses & I build my stamina up, I will add in increments of 5 to each exercise. How I will pay myself is $0.01 for each repetition. That may not sound like much, but I did the math & to just do what is listed there for 31 days is $63.55 or something close to that.

I plan on putting that money back for a treadmill. That way I can start adding in my cardio.

I will work on continuing the following streaks for August also:
* No trips to the vending machine
* No Soda
* No Sugar, by sugar I mean cakes, pie, cookies, etc.
* Take Meds Daily
* Exercise 10 min./day, haven’t been doing very good on this one, heck haven’t been doing it at all. That is why I need the motivation.
* No potatoes . . . I am trying to kick the potato habit, just a start to working towards better nutrition. I do good for a couple of days then I crash!

Sounds like some awesome goals to me!! Of course I have set goals before only to fail. I get side tracked, I get tired, something makes me upset, etc. This time I am hoping that with all of the support from all my wonderful SparkFriends I can stay on track for the month. I feel, as I have always felt in the past, if I can just get back into the habit of exercising regularly, that I will feel better, as well as begin to look better!!
