Do you give yourself goodies?

Tuesday, May 15, 2012

Once in a while I give myself a goodie - whether to motivate me or just to keep me going.

I have been actively consistent with Spark for 5 months - today I gave myself a goodie from each catagory with the exception of luxury... too darn expensive! So I allowed me one luxury item - what ever I wanted.

Out of fitness I gave myself the goodie of new shoes... I wore a hole in the bottom of my old pair. Sketchers last a long time but working out 4-5 days a week wore those in emoticon emoticon emoticon

In the food catagory I gave myself my favorite fruit: watermellon - as it is back in the stores and I will eat it 2x a day emoticon emoticon emoticon

In the household items I gave myself gardening tools to work in the yard, it is great exercise and I enjoy it emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

In the FUN category I gave myself an I LOVE YOU - we have to love ourselves to begin the process of taking care of ourself emoticon emoticon emoticon

In the other category I gave myself swim trunks.... I did not choose the bikini as I will not wear one at 49 yrs old - I am back to swimming and I want to continue to go 80 miles and all... I love the FREEDOM in swimming

My luxury item is the door - why? Because I CHOOSE to continue to step through the door of opportunities to do good things for my health.

Do you give yourself goodies? Why or why not?
If you don't - won't you start today to reward yourself for the steps you are taking to meet your goals to a healthier you?

I need the motivation from ME to continue on my journey. Yes, I also need the support from you and those in my every day life - but if I lose the ME in this process I will never meet my goals.

    I know it won't surprise you to learn that virtual gifts to myself aren't a motivation or reward. I appreciate that someone would virtually recognize or comfort me, but doing it for myself doesn't have the same emotional impact.
