Ok, not your typical work out tips. It’s kind of laughable me giving out fitness tips.
The most I can tell you is some obvious things… stay hydrated, keep moving, I can even give some opinions on some workout clothes…but to actually give you work out tips, I don’t work out enough to do that. Haha.
But I’ve found a way to get myself to work out more! Which is the whole purpose of this post.
I found it on Pinterest. Throw in some money every time I work out. There had been a couple of ideas I’ve tried along the same lines. Accomplishing goals (which were wayyy to abstract) and losing pounds (that was with rocks…and didn’t work too well). But this is purely for working out.
Kind of rewarding myself for working out…which I guess in a roundabout kind of way it could motivate me to work out. I have no idea how much money to put in the jar. That’s the problem.
It needs to be an amount that is substantial enough to make me want to do it…but not so much that I’m throwing in 15 bucks a week or whatever. Although… 15 bucks a week would be over 700 bucks over a year, tempting… but I’m not that greedy. Haha. So I’m not entirely sure how much I’m going to be throwing in there. But we’ll see.
Thanks to whoever thought this idea up…I love it! Now it’s just up to me to actually use it. At least with this…I can’t take away a work out. It isn’t like when I was thinking about doing it with pounds lost. Throwing in two bucks, then taking out three, just to put in another one. Didn’t make too much sense. With this, once I’ve done the workout then the money is in there.
So I am currently working on it.
So, here’s a picture of mine….work in progress, you can see around the letters. I wanted to throw a picture on here really quick, but the paint wasn’t quite dry. Soooo, once it dries, it’ll need another coat and re-edge the black. And it’ll be super cute! But if you look really closely at the picture you can see that I have already earned a dollar. Before I even started on it I had went on the elliptical for a half an hour! Yesssssss. So in goes a dollar. I wanted to throw something in there, one dollar might be fine. Who knows?
Did I just shamelessly steal an idea from someone, heck yes I did. Because it’s a brilliant idea. Super thanks to whoever did this first!!!!!
