Reward system for working out?

I have been doing pretty good in the last 24 hours with exercising. I did around 8 miles between yesterday & today. I even used the 30 Day Shred twice, and two other DVD's. I also cleaned up the kitchen, bathroom, and living room yesterday and believe me, that was no fun. Cleaning my house should definitely be considered a workout.

After being sick all week, it took a lot of effort to get moving, let me tell you!

I've decided that I will only allow myself computer time (something I generally don't even get that much of, believe it or not) if I've earned it by working out. This is probably one of my better ideas since this is actually getting me moving! I love going online & checking cnn, facebook, and my blog. I really look forward to it every day, in fact! Now I have to earn the chance to do so, and I think it's fantastic.

From now on, I will only come on the computer if I have walked at least 2 miles, have done something with my workout DVD's, or have had one fruit or vegetable. I need to do at least 2 out of those 3 things in order to come online.

Do you reward yourself with something for working out?


  1. The computer time reward is a great idea! God knows I should certainly be instilling that one! (Addicted to my blogs... :)

    P.S. I'm a new follower! Hi!

  2. Sounds like a great plan. I found that with me working at a desk 8 hours and then in the evening doing my writing for 6 hours, I was like a sled dog in an apartment, ready to tear up the furniture because I wasn't being exercised. Adults gain mostly because they lose that thing that kids always knew, our bodies need to move! I know people who are exhausted after desk jobs. No, their minds are exhausted, their bodies are waiting to wake up because they've been in the still sleeping mode all day. My incentive now is to think like I'm my own pet pup and I need exercising regularly. For 10 minutes out of every work hour, I workout on the elliptical. It's like taking the dog for a run.

  3. Sarah, Hi! I love your blog! Congrats on all your awesome achievements this week! And hey, believe meeee, I know what you mean about being addicted to the blog! I have only had this one for maybe a month and I am constantly thinking of new things to put up here. I still have over 10 articles saved on another computer I am in teh midst of researching! Blogging is more addictive than anything I've ever experienced!

  4. Autumn, Ooh, I love that idea for working out 10 minutes on the elliptical for ever hour worked! That's a very cool idea. I don't have a real job so I don't think it would work for me, but I may suggest that to friends! Love it :)

  5. Micro-finance schemes for self-employment, by commercial banks and other
    institutions such as the Small Business Finance Corporation (SBFC)
    and the Pakistan Poverty Alleviation Fund (PPAF) are considered pivotal for creation of
    opportunities for educated youth since employment prospects have significantly
    worsened. Yesterday, winds actually pushed the east flank of the Beach Fire up against the west side of the
    Arnica Fire. Immer noch viel wird ihm Generalisierung,
