I want I want

The rumors were true; Apple has announced a video iPod. The perfect excuse for me to replace my 15GB 3G model with the crappy battery life. (boyziggy nearly destroyed his Mini trying to upgrade the battery, so I'd rather not go that route.)

I'm pondering whether I should make this a weight-loss goal. I waited until I lost 10 pounds before buying my first iPod, and the timing was just right as I was able to buy my 3G the day they announced that model. My weight has yo-yo'd a bit since then and I'm currently at about 155. I'd like to get down to 125 or, ideally but probably not realistically, 115. (I'm 5' 4", medium build.)

Alternately, I could make a running-related goal, i.e. save a certain number of dollars for each mile I run until I have enough to buy the iPod. I have enough money to buy it immediately, I'm just trying to motivate myself to get in shape and avoid impulse purchases at the same time. I think I'll put up a poll.
