Rewards, version 1.0

Thursday, April 10, 2014

Nearly the loss of my first ten pounds, I realized I didn't have a reward structure in place. And hello, who doesn't like rewards!? I want to write them down here, but I also want some feedback and advice. I don't like that so many of them has monetary costs. If you have great ideas that are super cheap or free, let me know? I'd like to have a list of rewards to select from as I hit different points. Things like cleaning out clothes or buying new jeans, I can't say I'll be at that point at a certain weight, so accomplishing a weight loss goal is a time to reflect on how I'm doing and how to best reward myself at that time.

- Lush bubble bath
- Clean out old clothes
- Buy a new sports bra
- Buy new sneakers
- Buy a fitness watch w/HRM
- Have a massage
- Have a maid do some cleaning I don't like
- 2 night holiday at a state park with the hubby
- Have a facial at the spa
- Buy new underwear
- Buy a pretty bra
- Buy new jeans
- Buy a new dress
- Day out/date with the hubby
- Great candlelight dinner on the patio
- Picnic!

    I think all of these ideas you have here are great. I have a Polar HRM watch and I love it! It helps keep me accountable during workouts. I'm also happy to see that you don't have any food related "rewards," but you're a sparker, we know better ;) Happy weekend!

    I love the idea of rewarding yourself! I have yet to make my own list. It's kind of hard to think of non expensive but rewarding goals but I think your list is great!! Keep up the great work and you'll get to that 10 lb loss reward in no time!!

    This is a great idea. I always think of doing rewards, but I guess that I have never thought to put it down in a blog. Thanks for sharing friend!

    Maybe a reward could be something that you really enjoy doing, like for me I would maybe spend a day at the lake, or golf course, or to be honest take a day to have no chores and rest.

    Good for you and TGIF!!

    I love your reward ideas and I love that you aren't locking yourself one specific reward but instead allowing yourself a choice each time!

    I just passed 10lbs and I finally got to go get my hair cut- YAY!! Rewards are worth it.

    Keep it up good job!

    I agree! I think it's good to have goals and/or rewards to look forward to. It really depends on what is important to you. I saw a purse I really wanted at Target back in December. I told myself that I couldn't have it until I'd lost 20lbs. It's nice that it's mine now! Next on my agenda- when I've hit my 40 mark I get new sports bra's. Small rewards, that are motivating to me. emoticon on the loss!
