My programme - see if it works for you!

Tuesday, April 14, 2009

I have made up a user friendly programme for myself - feel free to do this too if you like - here's what I do:

I walk for an hour with my littlies in their double buggy on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Fridays. I am pleased to say week 1 has been successfully completed and I am half way through week 2 - yahoo. I am doing this for 10 weeks then I will take a 2 week break and begin again thereafter.

This is a moderate walk so that I remain in the fat burning zone. I also have a cup of coffee before I go as the caffeine assists with the fat burning.

Also (and I love this part) I 'pay' myself $2.50 for each completed walk so by the time I've completed my 10 weeks I'll have $100 to spend on some new clothes as a treat and also because my shape is bound to have changed! This is a great motivator too!

I figure I will have, in the 10 week period, walked approx 160 kms, and will have done 40 hours walking.

I am feeling really good, even after just a short while, I feel empowered and positive - such a great feeling!

    This programme has worked so well for me. I became pregnant in March 2009 and had baby Daniel in December 2009. My jeans were tight in March 2009 and the same jeans were loose around the tummy when I was full term in December 2009. I am about to start my walking programme up again (went a wee bit off track in the last couple of months) and will enjoy the results :-)

    Hi all, thanks for the comments - it's super to know I could be inspiring you too!

    Well, I've now got $25 saved - a quarter of the way there - and I've walked 40 kilometres, all in the space of two and a half weeks! I am positive I can see a difference, small yes, but it's there and I FEEL GREAT!!!!

    I'm looking forward to completing my next quarter and, before I know it, it'll be time for my two week break and shopping spree with my $100 emoticon

    Sounds like you have a good routine set up for yourself and you have a goal at the end too. Terrific!!

    Great idea. Love your blog. I should pay myself for each lap round the garden. Im just learning to walk again, so this is a real achievement for me.
