Reward Yourself

I read an idea in one of the articles on Spark that I liked, and thought I should share. They said to start a reward jar. Put $1 in it every time you reach a goal. When you get to $50, treat yourself.

Household Exercise

Remember that cleaning house and working outdoors is exercise. Time your intervals & wear a pedometer to get your mileage in (since you probably won't get in much other exercise that day). You will be surprised how it all adds up.

Don't let sickness get in your way!

When you are sick, and too weak to exercise, don't let that get you off track. Journalise your food, and post on the message boards. Earn as many Sparks points as you can. Then you will stay motivated, and be ready to go back to your normal schedule when you get well.

Don't push yourself too hard!!

Yesterday, I thought I could go a little farther with my daily walk. I ended up doing 2x my daily goal. This was good in a way, but I had pushed myself too far.
