I feel that rewarding myself is an important part of achieving difficult goals. Here is a list of some of the items I will use as rewards:
  • StepMania. StepMania is a rhythm game for Windows, Mac, and Linux. It features 3D graphics, keyboard and "dance pad" support, and an editor for creating your own steps. It is the open source PC equivalent to Dance Dance Revolution. I first learned about StepMania from Coding Horror. Since StepMania is open source (and free!) all I really need to purchase is the dance pad.
  • Speed Rope. The jump rope I have is just to clumsy. It doesn't straighten out properly and tangles at the bottom. I've tripped on it a few times and the last thing I want to do is get hurt while exercising.
  • Chin-up bar. Okay, I might not use this one as a reward, because I'm not the only one who wants it. It will probably be a "gift" for a significant other. (Was that cheeky of me?)
  • Pedometer. For counting steps. Yay! I rewarded myself with this one for logging my food for an entire week. That was hard, especially on the day I ate 1/2 a Cinnabon.
