four days or else you’ll pay.

A few work friends and I are starting a 3 month workout incentive program that we invented called, “Four days or else you’ll pay”. This program is designed to push us into working out that fourth day. As many of you know, working out three days per week is pretty easy. But working out that fourth day is really, really hard.

Here’s how it works. From now until August 1st, each of us has to work out four days per week. We keep track by using stickers on a calendar….because really, who doesn’t love stickers?!? At the end of the week, we each owe $5 for every day we didn’t workout four times. For example, if I only exercised three times during the week, I’d owe $5 to the pot. If I didn’t workout at all during the week, I’d owe $20. We collect the money weekly and at the end of it, we celebrate together (with drinks and food of course…we have to negate all that exercising)!

Today marked the end of our first week, and I’m proud to say that I’m rocking four stickers!

morning glory.

Last week, the impossible happened. I actually dragged my sorry butt out of bed at 5:30 to go to the gym before work. My goal was to go Monday – Friday for 45 minutes, and I only made it 3 days.  I only have 45 minutes to work out in the morning, so I feel like I have to go 5 days a week. Regardless of missing my 5-day goal, I’m still extremely proud of myself. To be honest, it’s really not that bad and I absolutely love not having to worry about it the rest of the day. No talking myself in and out of working out 14 times; no getting home from the gym at 7:45 pm; no feeling guilty when I opt-out. It’s awesome! However, it does mean getting to bed early. No more late nights for me.

Hopefully I can make it 5-days this week. Fingers crossed!
