Breaking an oath

Q: A person says "If I commit such and such a sin, I will fast every Monday and Thursday". The person committed the sin so started fasting. Does the option of paying kaffarah for breaking an oath still remain or has it closed because he has already started fasting?

A: He should continue fasting.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
