Walking Challenge

In the interest of full disclosure, I didn't complete my walk this morning.  I did go on a walk today, but not until the afternoon.  Sorry to disappoint you, Kimberley.  I know that habits are hard to break, they also take some time to establish.  And sometimes it takes more than will power to make a change.  So, here's the deal.  I promise to walk tomorrow morning.  If, for some reason, I don't, though, I'll donate $20 to charity for each comment made on this post (only one comment per person will count).  If I get 5 comments and I don't walk, I'll donate $100.  If I get 15 comments and I don't walk, I'll donate $100 dollars.  If I get 25 comments and I do walk, I won't have to donate any money.  I'm sure it all makes sense to you all.

Also, as you can see, I didn't do that much in the exercise department today.  That's mostly because I had to leave work at 12:30 to go to a mitigation hearing for a little speeding ticket (Now does that whole 2010 goal make more sense?).  I love the state of Washington, too.  I don't think that anyother states out there have a Deffered Judgement program, but it's super cool, and I'm very happy for it! 

"Upon deferring findings, the court may assess costs as the court deems appropriate for administrative processing. If at the end of the deferral period the defendant has met all conditions and has not been determined to have committed another traffic infraction, the court may dismiss the infraction" RCW
Essentially, I got a speeding ticket, but after paying a court fee and having no more infractions for a year, the speeding ticket comes off my record and never gets reported to my insurance comapny. How cool is that??  So, yeah, I didn't get too much exercise in, but I also limited my intake today, too, so it should be fine.

Okay, I had to kick myself in the butt a little bit, so I'll be the first to make me donate money if I don't get out of bed and take a walk. :)

Great idea! What's your charity of choice? Does this count as a comment when I've only asked a question?

You're Deffered Judgement sounds kinda like Maryland's PBJ (Probation Before Judgement), which is what I got for my one and only speeding ticket (I have no idea HOW that has happened, but WooT!)

I don't know why your blog isn't updating in my reader on time Beej - I would have promoted this on my blog if I had known in time. I am sure it my my RSS reader. Maybe I just need to check the blog manually every day.

What a fantastic idea for a motivator beej!!! You can do it. I SO know what you mean though, it's hard. I'm rooting for you to get up and do it tomorrow, but really it's a win-win either way...Well, except for your newly created budget maybe, lol.

Now I want you to sleep in and not walk...LOL!
