My wife is brilliant!
With our kids being out of school all week for Thanksgiving, we need to keep them busy.
We’ve got a ton of leaves to rake and pick up.
SPOILER ALERT: My sons HATE raking leaves.
My wife comes up with the brilliant idea that whoever rakes the most bag of leaves, gets to choose between a movie date with mom or go shopping at 5 and below (their favorite store).
Their motivation completely changed.
I’ve never seen two kids more excited to go and rake leaves on a Sunday afternoon:).
They even came up with the idea to rake up the same number of bags so they can both win:).
This got me thinking about our approach to exercise and eating healthy.
Sometimes we need a motivational reward to stay consistent with living a healthy lifestyle (especially during this season).
With Black Friday coming up, go and buy a outfit that’s one size smaller.
Hang the outfit up in your bathroom so it’s the first and last thing you see during the day.
This will be a subtle reminder to continue to stay consistent with eating healthy and working out so you fit into that outfit.
