Anytime you or your friend skips a planned workout the one who cancels has to put $5 into the jar. At the end of the month the person with the best track record gets all the money in the jar!

>Scheduling four may seem like a lot, but consider the fact that “something will come up” on one of those days and you will have to cancel. In that case, at least you will get three workouts in. Consider that fourth workout as a “bonus” workout. If you complete it, reward yourself!

>Try this at home:

Place a calendar dedicated to keeping track of your workouts in a prominent location such as your refrigerator.

  • Each day you workout draw a smiley face (or give yourself a sticker) on the calendar.
  • Each day you do not workout draw a big red “X” on the day.

If you see XXX you better get a move on!

Any week you have more smiley faces than X’s reward yourself!

>Yesterday we went to the Reforestation Camp to go cross-country skiing for our xo expedition. I inadvertently earned at least two hearts because I could not read the trail map!! Jack (our 8 year old) and I left the lodge at about 4 PM. I was planning to ski with him for 30-45 minutes. Unfortunately, I was more than a little confused by the map and we ended up on a MUCH longer loop. I couldn’t even call Ryan…no signal on my cell phone! We were out for 90 minutes! I am lucky that Jack is a good skier (not to mention a tough kid) and that the sun sets later these days. Jack earned a whole week’s worth of hearts.

Hope you all have started working on your hearts for this week. Try not to get lost while doing so.
