Non-food rewards...ideas?

Sunday, July 21, 2013

What are some good non-food rewards? What do you (or have you done) to reward yourself when you reach a milestone or goal? I have yet to meet a goal, so I really can't contribute an answer...but I was thinking maybe a new iTunes gift card (to keep myself going at the gym), a shirt in a smaller size, etc.

    I buy myself balloons as rewards, because I love balloons! A foil balloon is just $1 at the dollar store, and the one I have now has lasted nearly 3 weeks!

    I've been in maintenance for a year now. I rewarded myself by downloading, from iTunes, a couple of Russell Crowe and TOFOG, his band, albums. For the goals I reached to get to the maintenance mode, it was a Book, a rented a movie an old black and white, or a new journal that was needed!!!!!

Hope these suggestions help.

    My BIG reward when I hit the 100 pound mark is going to be a massage - I got a gift certificate for a 30 minute massage and am using it for my birthday gift - adding additional time as a reward based on how close and or how much MORE than 100 pounds I have lost by my September birthday.

    What about treating yourself with a spa treatment, manicure, or pedicure? Something you wouldn't do normally? Or for a big milestone- buy yourself an exercise class membership or a massage??

Those would motivate me!!

    I love the idea of iTunes gift card...I might steal that. Since we need to keep working out, we definitely need to keep our play list up to date so we don't get sick our music!

    I'm trying to come up with some rewards for myself as well. My husband got me a mini white rose for diligently sticking with things for the first week (and losing 5 lbs).

I'm thinking about getting myself a small bouquet for each week that I do well (I love fresh flowers on the table) and then coming up with something for each big milestone. What? I don't know yet. New clothes? A date night? A new book?
