Lisa’s Weekly Wine Challenges

So I had to “incentivize” myself into getting back on the fitness wagon.  I made a deal with myself that if I would JUST. WORKOUT. EVERY DAY. for 5 days, I could have a glass of wine.

I had tried this before and it didn’t work.  There was no guarantee that I would buy in to my own motivator.

But this time, something clicked.

I made it to three days and realized that with only two days left in my personal challenge, I’d be pretty lame to not finish.

I did my fifth day’s workout this morning.  Break out the vino!

My reward!

I got to thinking that I need to up the ante on these challenges and make them more meaningful, especially since I want to use this little incentive tool and lay a solid mileage foundation to take me to the first day of SARR half marathon training in August.

And maybe, just maybe … one or two people will want to join me along the way.  Who knows?  If no one does, no worries.  More wine for me!  🙂

Sooo the challenge is this: complete the weekly task, earn my wine.  Easy-peasy.
