One of my goals for this year is to improve the balance between my sewing time and exercising. Because, let’s face it, it’s more fun to sew or knit than to go to the gym. However, I realized that “improve the balance between sewing and exercise” is a pretty vague goal. So I came up with a little incentive – a literal, and figurative carrot. 🙂
For each hour of exercise, I’ll be working my way towards . . . .a new sewing machine!!! Based on my calculations, and weekly goals, it should take me about a year to fill the carrot, which will give me plenty of time to research and figure out what machine I want.
I put the carrot up front and center on my bulletin board, hopefully to keep me motivated. I’ll also try to give you an update every now and then, and we’ll see how I do. 😉
