Dark Orange's Weight Loss Incentives
Monday, January 25, 2016
OK, I've been meaning to give this a try to see if it puts a spark under my ass to motivate me more and keep me on point for the long journey ahead. This way maybe I look at it as 1 minigoal at a time and get a treat along the way. I have my partner's buy-in which is nice because I honestly don't know what he can do to help me out, which is probably a topic for a whole other blog post. Maybe he can be a cheerleader. So....here is what I've mapped out:
300 - newest starting weight
290 - order a specialty loose tea online
285 - my unstuck weight! buy a new kitchen gadget
280 - new ear cuff ring
275 - 25% earns me a massage!
270 - subscription to Health magazine (or alt)
260 - new sport bra
250 - 1/2 way point, go girl!!
Take the day off for me time! Get a manicure or pedicure. Take the night off from cooking (go out or my partner cooks)
240 - new haircut and color
230 - set up a prenatal appt & Sephora makeover
225 - 75% earns a couples spa retreat
220 - finally time for buying an engagement/wedding ring
210 - sexy panties/lingerie
200 - Holy F! You reached goal. Time to celebrate and buy a new wardrobe, including dresses and knee high boots!
Other miscellaneous rewards my partner can choose for notable efforts:
- earrings (like my favorite pink stone hoop ones)
- other kitchen gadgets (citrus zester, silcone whip, silicone cupcake molds, veg peeler)
- travel coffee mug
- perfume oil or soap of partner's choice from Soap Operah
- date night for adventure (rent a boat, jet ski, or canoe; go horseback riding, take a cooking class, pick a park in the state atlas and go; try geocaching; check out a play at local theater; take a roadtrip to Milwaukee or Chicago)
