I didn't make it to the gym this morning because my arms refuse to lift one more thing. Over the weekend, my husband and I did a touch of remodeling upstairs, and let me tell you, gray is a hard color to paint over - especially with shades of yellow (and I even got the good paint). We started this last weekend and it turned into a two weekend project. We laid flooring, taped, painted, moved furniture, and in the end, found a really happy place. I never thought about what a workout it would be, but I guess that's a side bonus. I'm up to 43 stickers now and am pushing hard for 100 and that trip I promised myself in May (check out our group The Sticker Revolution on Facebook).
I've also found an awesome incentive app called "Yes.Fit". It does cost money, but the money pays for your rewards. You sign up for virtual races, and choose a medal or T-shirt as a finishing prize. Along the way, you get to see Google Earth shots of where you are on the trail and you can compete with your friends. I set a goal to finish the Unicorn race across Scotland in 48 days (it's 121 miles at about 2.5 miles per day). So far, I'm ahead of goal which is awesome. I just keep taking my goals one day at a time and striving to be better.
This time last year, I was very sick and going downhill fast. Now, I'm finding strength I never knew I had emotionally and physically. Stick around to see my awesome unicorn medal!
