Is that a challenge?? Huh, punk?? You challengin' me??

Oh, he di-ent.

Nooo, he di-eeent.

But, yes he did.

Last night I caaasually mentioned to Mighty M that I was thinking about a little reward system for this week for myself. I'm on my new Training Peaks plan, and it has quite a few more sessions each week then my flybytheseatofmypants plan I was making up as I went. So, knowing my proclivity for bartering with myself in the morning when the alarm goes off and the propensity of my life to blow up at least once each week, I figured a little wager was in order.

IF I make all my sessions for the week, THEN I will treat myself to an eyebrow wax.

(And, frankly, people, I'm due. It is definitely time for some TLC up there on that brow of mine. I think I saw an icicle hanging from the left one yesterday.)

So, M hears this and ups the challenge, the crafty man he is. He'll match my brow wax and raise me a mani or pedi for a 100% week.

Did he really just bet me a manicure that I can't finish the week of training? Did he REALLY JUST DO THAT???

Get out your checkbook, M. I'm all over this challenge. I have something like 8 sessions between me and some perdy nails and some perdy brows.

Now THAT'S what I call motivation.

I know you will win this one. Why not go ahead and get him to bet you on something else for next week? Do it now before he sees how dedicated you are ...
go girl is right!

Seriously, get him to bet something for next week before he realizes his error.

Glad I'm not the only one who makes deals with myself :)

You deserve that TLC! I am all over the reward system, I already have my 80 minute massage scheduled for a week from this Saturday! Have a great weekend and earn that pampering!

I'd say the nails are as good as done. Keep up the good work!
