Getting your family on board with fitness and clean eating isn’t always easy, and often they need a little outside motivation to get moving in the right direction. We are now trying the family tip jar as a way to get everyone on the right track.
As a family, decide on what your goal will be. Make it something that gets the least motivated members of the family excited. In the beginning, don’t make the goal so big or crazy that it will take a long time to accomplish. Have it easy to get done in 2-3 weeks. Don’t make the goal something that negates your hard work. Family Pizza Night may be fun, but it sends the wrong message. I love the idea of something that corresponds with your fitness goals and something you can do together, like buying a badminton set for the back yard or a day at a waterpark.
You can create your own set of tips and corresponding dollar amounts, but if you’d like to print the one I used just click on the graphic (I printed mine at 50% to fit on a Mason Jar). I just slipped the piece of paper inside the jar.
