My new exercise plan

So I'm really depressed about my weight at the moment. I feel so stupid and disappointed that I let myself get so overweight. Today I made a positive step towards trying to fix this. I gave myself a plan and incentives to exercise. I have set up an easy spreadsheet that has the type of exercise I am likely to do(walking, Wii Fit, hydrotherapy and gym) and time increments i would do them in (15min, 30min, 45min, 1hr and 1hr+). Then i mark the date that i did this exercise on.

I have decided that i need incentive to keep me going. I LOVE buying things from It is one of my favorite websites and i love just going to the forums and checking out peoples shops from there. I try to buy hand made gifts now so I try to plan and get things from there too. So for incentive, every hour I spend exercising I get an Etsy Dollar. A dollar to spend on I think its a great idea. not only will it give me incentive to keep exercising. it will save me money because i wont just go and spend money in the shops anymore. I think that maybe i should get a bonus for weight loss too but i haven't decided how much weight loss and how many dollars i should get for it. I know i want to loose 15-20kgs. so maybe every 5kg i can get a bonus of $10 or something like that.


  1. What a great idea!...look forward to seeing how u go with it...

  2. That sounds like a great plan. I never thought about doing incentives like that. I think you've inspired me!

  3. hey hey! keep motivated! I lost 20 lbs since the new year. ( last couple of pounds are have been tough though)

  4. That's a great idea--I like your reward system. Good luck with it!

  5. You had an awesome idea! It´s a very good way to keep you motivated ^_^

  6. That's actually quite an inspiring plan! Of course I am an etsy addict myself, hehe.
    I should also really lose a bit... still waiting for Summer though, nicer fruits are available and swimming is more fun. :)

    Best of luck!
