AKA my new self-stimulus plan!
Here’s the deal: I love fabric. I’m addicted to it. But my storage unit is getting full and my pocketbook is running low. So I can’t be buying fabric and sewing things willy-nilly these days. Also, I really need to dedicate my time to actually sewing up what I have.
Also, I’m overweight, but more importantly, pretty darn out of shape with quite a few unhealthy habits. I need a way to build new habits and reward myself with something other than food.
So, I have decided that I now need to earn my money that I spend on Fabric, new patterns, and sewing classes. Here is my new deal with myself:
I will earn $1 towards fabric/patterns/etc every time I accomplish one of the following:
1. Loose a pound
2. Loose an inch off of my thighs, waist, or hip measurements.
3. Complete a 30 min or longer workout.
4. Go a full day without eating any junk/sugary/trigger foods (Especially coffee, ice cream, pizza, candy bars, etc)
I will reward myself with double dollars for any of these that is completed during a tech week, as that is when I have a tendency to eat really badly/not take care of myself.
I will also earn $5 if I go down a jeans pants size.
Now I just need a fun (and easy) way to track this money that I earn so that I know what/when I can spend it! Any tips?
Here are the current Items that I most want to earn ASAP, especially before Christmas!
