Default Red Team Earning Exercise Challenge Part 2

Okay Red Team...we need to do some chores to earn our allowance this week!

I've got kids and they have each have reward charts, on those charts are a list of chores that need to be completed during the week in order for them to earn an allowance. What you need to do is this -

1. Make a list of "chores" one "chore" for each day of the week, we'll start on Monday since its short notice (Monday October 26 - Sunday November 2)

Here is an example of your chore list-
Monday - 30 minute walk
Tuesday - Last chance workout during TBL commercials
Wednesday - 45 minutes yoga
Thursday - 15 minutes on the elliptical
Friday - walk somewhere instead of driving
Saturday - weights
Sunday - Workout DVD

2. At the end of the week, when you've completed all your "chores" you will have earned your allowance. If you can make it through the week, you need to take go buy yourself something, doesn't have to be anything major just SOMETHING! A new book, a starbucks coffee, a new toe nail polish, a nice candle, a get the idea.

Can you make a list and stick to it for 7 days?

Post up your lists! Check those chores off as they are done! Then we want to know what you bought for yourself!

Kelly's Chore List - (after last weeks big pile of sucky not completing, I'm going to try again)
Monday- Cardio at the gym
Tuesday- light weights and step aerobics at home during the biggest loser
Wednesday- Cardio at the gym
Thursday- walking at the dog park, light weights at home while I watch something on the boob-tube
Friday- Cardio at the gym
Saturday- This Saturday I am going to TRY to get to the gym but given what is going on this Saturday, it may not happen, however, I think I will be getting plenty of ACTIVITY in this day if not exercise...of course there will be food EVERYWHERE! I have the New Hope Cattle Dog Roundup (an event that the dog rescue group I work with has for all the foster families, volunteers and adopters past and present - we're looking at 70+ humans and around 40 dogs that have RSVP'ed and who knows how many who haven't!) and this is followed by a yearly Halloween Party with folks from my hubby's dojo. Does this sound like excuses? It does to me too...shoot. Let's see, I don't have to be to the roundup until 0900...I guess I'll be going to the gym early!! I WILL do it!
Sunday - Cardio/lifting at the gym

My allowance...same book from last week that I didn't earn
