A Smart Idea
My scale is still reading the same as it has all month. I think this weekend will mean a trip to Wal-Mart to get a new scale. I have been working out pretty consistently this week and eating healthy, so I'm expecting some change soon.
Here's an idea my mom came up with that I have been implementing at home. For every 15 minutes of exercise I do, I put $0.50 in a bank. So, if I get a good 30 minutes 4 days a week I will earn myself $4.00. Not too much, but not a bad amount either. By the end of the month I will have $20.00 and by the end of the summer I will have about $60.00. Another month and I can get some new running shoes! Or an outfit, new running watch or maybe go crazy with a pair of heels. Who knows. I pull the money from a big change jar my husband and I drop spare money into, so sometimes I have to scrounge for the quarters, but it's well worth it.
Good luck with your healthy living weeks!
