Isn't it amazing how when the going gets a bit tough the excuses start to fly? I am noticing whenever I have a tough day (feel a bit under the weather, challenging day at work or with the kids etc) the "I deserve a reward" thoughts start popping into my head. BUT let's examine what is considered a "reward"! I want to turn to chocolate or other sweets. Shouldn't a reward make you feel good??? I am now discovering that my old rewards leave me feeling sluggish and bloated. My challenge this month is to listen to my old habits and turn them around to true rewards. It is hard for me to find time in the day sometimes to exercise but when I do it surely feels like a reward. I feel happy, invigorated and proud of myself. Shouldn't this be how you feel after a "reward"? I am also going to reward myself by using positive and optimistic phrases and words to describe my life and actions. No more I can't, I shouldn't, It's hard, .....it will be I can, I will, I am! Good night my dear Sparks everywhere...you are all amazing!
