Backstory: since January, I've had a broken wrist, then bronchitis, then pneumonia, which triggered my asthma worse than ever, and I broke a rib from all the coughing along the way. Sooooo I haven't been to the gym in four months. I'm now 98% healed, and I definitely need to get my butt back in the gym/running and get back to my pre-holiday, pre-injury shape. I like running, but I'm having a really hard time getting back into the routine and fitting exercise back into my schedule.
I asked Sir to help me with this, so we talked it through and agreed that I have to work out three times a week. The catch? He told me that I have to think about an appropriate consequence for breaking this new rule. He wants my input because he thinks the punishment should be directly related to what I am trying to work on to make it feel more relevant-- so does anyone have any suggestions for consequences that might somehow feel appropriate for exercise/weight loss? I appreciate that he's being supportive, but I always hate the pressure of having to suggest a punishment.
