reward help THANKS!

Friday, February 08, 2013

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:

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!

    Great goals and great rewards system! You can do this! What you may want to do is research the price of the massage at the Spa you want to go to and then put that amount into the out jar. That way you have TWO visuals for the rewards system. Hmm... maybe that would work for me.
