I had big plans to show you some pretty pictures from my holidays today, but alas, I forgot my memory cards... so instead I'm going to write about incentives.
Incentives to lose weight.
My little blog started as a weight loss blog... then transitioned into a maintenance blog.... then kinda went to a running/fitness themed blog.... then to it's current state where I just ramble about whatever the hell I feel like writing about.
If this was a fluffy blog, I'd likely say things like "You don't need incentives to lose weight - a healthier you is incentive enough"
I need incentive. I like competition. I also like sparkly things.
Remember my Trollbeads bracelet that I got for Christmas?
I've decided to return the Trollbeads bracelet, and keep the Pandora. The most important part, is that the "N" bead (for Nanny) fits the Pandora bracelet. Sadly the other 2 do not.
I've got a lofty weigh loss goal - 30 lbs. God, I hate writing that.
I have decided to procure myself a Pandora charm for every 5 pounds that I lose.
Materialistic? Yeeeeeeeeeep. Do I care? Not so much. Will it keep me on track? Absolutely.
....and that is what is important.
Breaking it up into mini 5 pound chunks will keep the goals realistic and attainable.
I'm thinking this little beauty will be my first purchase:
