Yes, Mowing is listed as a cardio exercise on Sparks. I have used it many times as well as weeding the flower bed and other outdoor chores. LOL.

It's pretty interesting about the "Research" part, because now that I have a background for coding, its like you can see the code as you play (well, at least the logic setup of it) and having a background in playing games really really helps when developing one. When we created our demo, my two other programmers didn't really like playing games, so there was alot of arguements on what would be cool gameplay or not (cheat codes are not for cheaters! they are for developers tools!) Oh well.

haha, this could relate to that goal reaching.. I get Halo 3 by mowing my parents yards! Since my fiancee doesn't wanna spend that much of our (my) money on a game, I have to do some extra work to get it :( Mowing is cardio too!

Really, so does Nintendo consider that as a business expense? Since it is related to work.

Haha, games would be a great reward... except we buy pretty much any game we want anyway. XD My fiance is in the gaming industry as well (he's a programmer), so if a game comes out that we want it's basically "research" for us, and it supports our industry... whatever gets me my games, haha =)

HEY! That's not sad!!!

Or, if so, I'm sad too... cause I'm the same way.

My halfway point reward was running shoes (up till that point I was working out in Chuck Taylors...) and at the running store I was so giddy I was telling the salesman all about how I was halfway to my goal and had lost 50lbs so far, and now I was going to learn to run, yadda yadda yadda and had this big goofy grin on. :) hahahaha

Thats nice motivation DRWALKERIT but i think you should do a lil more than that. You cant cheap out now, you can only do that after you marry her, like my hubby!!! Hahaha....j/k. When i lose weight i usually get more equipment, i get all giddy about new workout eqipment. I know, thats sad!

I made a mental deal with my future wife, every 10 pounds I lose, I get to eat some cake. And for every 10 pounds she loses, I will applaud her when she's getting out of the shower.

She doesn't know about this deal, but I think it's great.

That is a pretty sweet deal. I would want to do that for every 20 pounds that I lose. A new game would be sweet. I am going to reward my first 20 lbs lost with the Halo 3 game on September 25th. That is going to be awesome. I do not know about making the deal with the wife for purses. That will get pretty expensive.

Cool deal! Goals are so important and you've set some great ones! Maybe in between you could do something to encourage each other, like buy your wife a little purse charm or something similar at the dollar store for every 10 pounds. It's always great to have something to look forward to!!

Good luck!

so me and the wife sat down and did some talking and came to a conclusion to reward us for small goals. well every 50 pounds i lose i get a new ps3 game lol. now thats motivtion. since its $60 a game now pretty much for the ps3. it gets exspenive. and every 50 pounds she loses she gets a new purse. but in the end i get shafted since she is only into the $100-200 purses like (coach,D&B,LV etc.). buts its all good to me lol.
