exercise jar

If you’re tired of starting over, stop giving up.

I stole this idea from Pinterest to put a dollar in a jar every time you go to the gym as an incentive to work out more. I picked one up from Ikea a week and a half ago, and it’s still empty! Although now that I think about it, I should really put $5 in it for every hour I was hiking that god awful mountain last Sunday.

I feel like I’m always losing the same ten pounds, because I do really well for a good chunk of time (usually around 8 weeks and when $407 is at stake—I’m just throwing random numbers out there). But soon after I remember how much I love food and hate exercising. I have yet to find a balance between the two.

A friend once told me, “I don’t live to eat. I eat to live.” At least I think that’s what he said… I could barely hear him over the crunching in my mouth as I polished off my carne asada chips! Ha.

    totes, love! that balance is always hard to find! But remember? That survey i told you about…the reason why people loose 100+ pounds is because they finally started to give a shit about themselves. i love you…and all your forms, love. You just have to do the same =)

    We ate carne asada fries for dinner our first night in SD. It made me never want to eat again…until we had pineapple upside down pancakes for breakfast the next morning at Snooze.

    I had the pancake trio (red velvet, Heath bar, pineapple) and only really liked the pineapple upside down one. We didn’t have time to really enjoy our meal because we were late for kayaking! Pictures next week 🙂
