I signed on to SparkPeople today to start entering my food for the day (ok -really wasn't planning 325 calories for breakfast!!) and I checked out the community while I was there.
I came across one ladies page and found something very interesting. She had created a whole schedule of rewards for herself.
Lose 5 lbs - get a coffee
Lose 10 lbs - get a new pair of jeans
Lose 15 lbs - get a new book
and so on ....
I saw this and thought, 'Note to self, create a rewards system for yourself that does not include a cream sauce or a sea of chocolate.'
So this, along with laundry, polishing, sorting through my office/craft room, making some thank you notes, etc.., is my mission for today. I'd like to include markers that go beyond lbs lost. What about self-esteem found? Daily exercise? hmm....
Stay tuned for my rewards list. I will need to be creative as it can not involve lots of spending. Healthy eating is expensive enough! Now that I think of it, having lost 16 lbs thus far, I really have already earned 3 rewards! Are rewards retroactive?
Do you reward yourself for reaching your goals? Let me know what you've done.
It's time to wash the bathroom floor.... sigh
