So when I hit six weeks postpartum I laced up my running shoes and set out to conquer the monstrous hill by my house. It doesn’t look so steep, but trust me, when you’re on it, it’s a beast! 🙂
Though the view was gorgeous and almost a distraction from my breathless gasps, needless to say, I came back feeling completely exhausted and discouraged at my fitness level, or serious lack thereof.
The next evening when it was time to hit the hill again, memories of the previous day came flooding back and made me want to stay in and lounge on the couch instead. 🙂
So because I’m a very reward-driven person, I decided to come up with a system to get myself back in gear. I needed a sure-fire method of motivation and this was it.
