Where is my tog bag?.
Am I the only one who likes rewards?.
Imagine if you were promised to lose a guaranteed 10kg after following an exercise programme for 10 days. Would you not jump to the opportunity?. Because I will.
Our gym club realised that it can not guarantee or promise us to lose a certain amount of weight at a certain time. Then they promised to give out tog bags to new members. All you need as a new member is go to gym 16 times in the next 2 months. Very easy hey?.
I had a problem with my gym contract so I decided to just cancel it and rejoin (long story). I was like a new member because I was starting a new contract. I then qualified to enter the 16 days tog bag challenge.
I was in need of anything to motivate me to stop staring at my cutie nugget all day long and start working on my body. In the past three weeks I have been going to the gym 6 times a week with ease.
It was a fair deal since I just had a baby and my body needs serious rehabilitation, I took it to myself to clap these 16 days straight, resting only on Sundays. You probably saying fit new mommy. No, I am not fit and after 16days I am still not fit but I am definitely getting there.
When I started my 16 days tog bag challenge, I could not finish 15minutes of cardio exercise without feeling seriously tired. Now I can at least keep active for 30min, which is huge for me.
This morning I could not wake up. I was exhausted. Sleepless nights and all, I made it to gym because it was the 16th day. I was going to get my tog bag, so I thought.
I handed my card to the receptionist and I said “I’m getting my tog bag today” with a huge smile. And he said “Oh good, I will take your card to the manager and he will email you to let you know when to collect the bag”.
What?. Aaaag I was seriously pissed. Now I finished the challenge and NO REWARD.
It took me a good 8 minutes to convince myself to workout that day. I looked on the positives and reminded myself of my fitness level when I started the challenge. I also took a glimpse of my facial skin which was looking much more radiant compared to when I started the change. I enjoyed my workout that day.
Truthfully the last 16 days of workout was kind of miserable but once it was done I felt great. Isn’t that always how it goes?.
I am looking at ways to motivate myself to keep going to the gym for the next month. Maybe I will buy myself a good running shoe.
