I know everyone has the same old new year's resolution to get in shape...

This has less to do with any new year resolution and more to do with the fact that I am getting married 5 MONTHS FROM TODAY! yay!

I "liked" this pin on pinterest last night and it really got me thinking....

The idea behind this money jar is that every time you complete a workout you put $1 in the jar.  
When you've reached a certain goal you can take the money and treat yourself to something special.

I need some type of visual and physical motivation like this.  I used to be such a fitness junkie but this past year I have been slacking...BIG time.  It's not that I have gained any weight at all...if anything I have lost a few pounds...BUT I have lost so much of the tone, definition, and muscle that I used to have.  

I really think I'm going to start a jar like this.  I plan on saving up and after a few months I can go out and treat myself to a few swimsuits for the honeymoon!! :) What better way to get motivated to get in shape.  I have to look good on the beaches of Jamaica come June :) 

My workouts are going to consist of P90x videos which I LOVE and get awesome results from.  I'm also going to try out Zumba on the Wii for a fun change of pace.  I love dancing and have heard that Zumba is fun so I'm going to give it a try. 

This really is going to be a challenge.  I am now working a full time job, will be starting grad classes next week, and am entering the crunch time for planning a wedding! Despite my busy schedule, I'm determined to get motivated and make time to workout each night or even morning! I'm hoping to get back a toned and defined body by the time the wedding rolls around.

Wish me luck! I'll be back with progress as the months dwindle down!
