Rewards - what it's all about!
Yes, yes, my greatest reward awaits me in heaven. I know this. I look forward to that day. But let's face it, hard work in our earthly realm needs a just reward! Don't cha think? I do. If I lose 40 lbs then I get my boots. That's it. Self-imposed. And now egads.... public.
Goal: 40 lbs.
As Corey (Tongue in Cheek) says, eat less move more.
Lose. 40. pounds.
