Here’s how to set up a good rewards system:
* Choose some benchmarks and reward levels. (small rewards, milestones, and BIG GOALS)
* Make the reward meaningful to you.
* Small rewards can be used for meeting smaller goals. (maybe for tracking each day)
* Don’t use food as a reward.
* Plan to celebrate.
* Buy yourself some flowers
* A pretty candle or bath stuff.
* New make up
* Start a reward jar…put in strips of paper each with a small reward and pull one out each time you reach a goal. Or you can put in $$ for each goal you reach and then have money saved for a bigger reward when you reach a bigger goal.
* A new book
* New nail polish
* New jewelry, earrings
* A movie
* Going on a day trip somewhere cool
* Have a spa weekend at home just relax for a full weekend take the kids to grandma.
* Get scented candles
* Scented body oil let your husband (if you have one) give you a massage and just relax.
* If you crochet or knit - buy yourself some new seasonal yarn or beads for a jewelry maker.
* New workout clothes
* New perfume
* New music for your workout playlist
* $20 to spend at Goodwill/ Thrift Store
* Some pretty for your house
* New DVD (movie or workout)
* A good flavored coffee
* New cool water bottle
* New gardening supplies (tools, gloves, etc)
* Keurig coffee maker
* Gym equipment (squat rack, new barbells, etc.)
