So last week I earned my 20 lb reward (again…I gained and now lost again). I am so excited to be halfway there! It’s only taken 9 months, but at least it’s coming off and not going on! I am switching around some of my awards…because I made my bib and medal racks/displays a while ago. And I got my massage and mani/pedi for Mother’s Day. And I traded my Fitbit for a Garmin 220…and I got 2 new pairs of shoes. Plus with the added bonus of losing some of this weight…all of those cute workout clothes from pre-pregnancy are like new! I was really excited to pull them out of storage a few weeks ago!
So I need some new rewards! I decided that my 20 pound reward was to be personal training! I adding personal training to my gym membership this week as a way to keep me motivated, and give me some new stuff to work on! So once a month I will be meeting with a trainer! Woot!
And this time I am posting progress pictures!
Please excuse my dirty mirror! I love that I can actually see the progress now. For months now I’ve still been seeing this same chubby Mama, and felt like It just was not changing. But now I can see the changes.
I had sort of forgotten how skinny I was until I saw this photo while looking through some old pictures for a project.
This was during our honeymoon, and I was about 15 weeks pregnant here…but I was so small! Crazy…
The next milestone is 30 pounds…and I am already 1 pound closer! So 9 more pounds to go until I get a… ‘nother massage! I really need it with all of the hell the trainer has put me through over the last 3 weeks… and by hell I mean awesomeness.
Do you give yourself rewards for accomplishing something? Do you have to have a race or an event to keep training for?
