Just wanted to thank everyone for the ideas on trying to help me get out of the rut I find myself in every now and then and helping me figure out a way to break the cycle.
BLog is here if you want to see comments & Ideas: www.sparkpeople.com/mypa
I like the idea of trying to set up a daily goal reward with pennies or nickels and then once a month or quarter take the money and use it to buy some thing I want and don't buy myself.
going to go find two containers, a bunch of money and get started. I also liked the idea of having the money in one and moving it to another jar. I already have the jar of money - we put our change in it every day and cash it in at vacation time every year! ; ) Guess that is why the idea caught my eye. I already do this, now I just have to add on using it for doing what I should every day.
Here is my goal rewards:
Track calories: 25 cents
Exercise, 15 min: 10 cents
Exercise, ST: 10 cents
Therefore I could earn 45 cents a day. which is $13.50 a month. Including tip, it will take me 4 months to earn the money. Look out June here I come!!
What we will I buy myself when I am done?
see this is the hard part. There is so little I need. I really don't go out shopping much. And going out leaving my DH at home is heart breaking if I cam not working for some reason. Guess it is the close call of his heart surgery.
OK OK OK - NO more excuses Jann!! I PICKKKK.......
Hot stone massage! there! I have been wanting one for 9 years now. My family took me out on my 50th birthday for a spa day and I absolutely loved it.
Will put on my other goals list and see how I do. I just know I have a beautiful vase or stone container to use for my hot rock massage! Will have to get set up and take pics!
