New system of rewards

Wednesday, May 30, 2012

I was out walking yesterday and started to think over what kind of reward system would work for myself. They haven't usually worked in the past because I either can live without the reward and would rather just have the food, or I'd just get myself the reward if I wanted it badly enough.

I decided that I'm going to try money.

The system goes like this.

1. If I stay in my calorie range (1200-1400) AND meet my exercise goal for the week (burn 2800 calories), I get $30 for that week.

2. If I either mess up one day OR miss my calorie burn by up to 500 calories, but keep logging and trying, I get $20.

3. If I mess up on calories AND miss my calorie burn by up to 500 (OR go over on calories twice, but meet my burn amount, I get $15. But, only if I log everything and keep trying.

4. Even if I overeat all week and/or don't exercise enough or at all, as long as I log everything, I get $10.

My list of things I'm going to want are: a new bathing suit, some new clothes, a winter trip to the U.P. to see the ice caves.
