My Fabric Incentive

In an attempt to find ways to get my butt in gear and get more exercise, I've decided to offer myself an incentive. Starting last week, I'm transferring $3 into a separate account every time I do an hour of exercise.

Last week I managed 6 hours of exercise and I treated myself to some cute FQs from a local quilt shop and a few vintage pillowcases from the thrift shop that is conveniently located just next door. A good haul, and a few dollars left in the kitty for next time.

I love fabric. I don't always love exercise, but I think it makes sense to push myself a little in this regard, and 'earning' fabric seems like just the push I need.




Off to go to a spin class . . .there's fabric in it for me!

Great idea - I'm rooting for you! You can make an entire quilt one day of loot you bought with your earnings. It would make for a funny story of how it came to be.

Great idea, Donna! Lovely fabric you chose, too!
Now can you think of a way for me to justify my habit? Do I have to exercise? Really?
