Default $1000 prop bet

Hey guys,

I got two of my poker supportive friends that agreed to a $500 prop bet that totals $1,000, here are the terms we have come up with. I am hoping to get some opinions on what else I could add/change to help me grow as a player.

As you know I have problems with jumping limits and getting into "I don't give a shit lets gamble mode" when I take multiple bad beats for a period of time.

This bet is for a period of 2 months.

Here are the terms so far:

1.) Only play 10NL
2.) Show a profit of one buy-in($10)
3.) No sessions with a loss greater then 3.5 buys-ins($35)

Any suggestions to these terms? Please keep in mind these terms are to benefit me as a growing poker player not to win an easy 1,000 from my friends. Also the 1,000 is agreed to be put into my poker account as a new starting BR for 25NL, my starting BR will be $250 for this bet.

Why only a one buy-in win? For 2 month if you can't solidify a decent win rate than the 1000 dollars is going to be pointless as a BR. Also I don't know if the no 3.5 BI loss in one session is a good idea because you can't control it when you get aces in 3 hands in a row and lose every time.

I will say however that I struggled at 10NL. I did pretty well in 5NL and am doing alright in 25NL so far, but 10NL was a bitch for me.
