The place where I work out has given me an incentive. I work out 12 or more times per month and they give me $20 off my monthly fee. Excellent. If somebody is 'giving' me money, I'm not one to turn them down.
So, I've been diligent on attending at least 3 times per week in order to fill my minimum quota.
One would think if you work out for at least 30 minutes 3-4 times a week, you are bound to loose some pounds right?
Not this girl. And I know why. I have no will power. Zip, zilch, nada. I rationalize everything I eat. I say to myself, "I'm going to work out tonight, so I'll go ahead and eat these 12 Starbursts. Ah, what the heck, I'll wash those Starbursts down with a couple of Tootsie Rolls." See, makes sense right? Not if your goal is to loose weight. Apparently, this method only works if you want to maintain. Oops.
