Lately, people have been asking me (relentlessly) if I'm pregnant...
I'm beginning to think I look (and act--sorry hubby) the part.
So. In hopes to shed a few, and maybe get some people off my back, I've made a new years resolution that has turned into this....
A weight loss jar.
Originally seen here. (obviously.)
This girl added a pebble for every pound she lost, but seeing as I don't have 365 pounds to lose (or however many pebbles are in that little $1 basket...), I decided to make up my own pebble scale:
Each night I add a pebble for all of the things I did during the day that relate to my weight loss goal...
i.e: Go to the gym (1 pebble), pass on seconds at dinner (1 pebble), skip treats for the day (1 pebble), eat a fruit or veggie (a pebble for each serving), etc.
For each thing I don't follow through on,
I take a pebble away from the jar.
It seems to be working for me so far, because it makes me more accountable for the things I do throughout the day.
(I still haven't decided what the prize is for filling the jar...A shopping spree? A double decker oreo ice cream pop? A puppy??
I think I'll stick with the natural consequence: a smokin' hott bod.
I'm up for doing this with anyone who wants to join in on the fun!
The husband wasn't too keen on the idea...
I guess it's a girl thing...? ha.
And for the record, it was a cheap little DIY craft!
Dumpy Basket: $1 D.I.
Blue Mason Jar: $5 D.I.
Assorted Pebbles: Free with leftover gift cards from our wedding
Losing weight: Priceless
(ha! Sorry, I couldn't resist...)
Seriously though, any takers on joining in with me?
I'm open for suggestions on pebble adding ideas, too!
Also, I wanted to say thanks to all of my readers out there.
(Even if it is only my mom and auntie...)
You are great.
