This weekends reward is not really a reward, but a breath of air. I will grocery shopping without my daughter!

The scale is my biggest downfall. I am trying not to weigh myself until my pants fall off (literally!!) so maybe I will have to reward myself for every 5000 calories burned or so many days of healthy eating in a row.

My rewards are getting time to spend with friends, sewing and getting my nails done. I do most on these all the time. It's what keeps me motivated. emoticon

I reward myself with little things just for me. Like a great bubble bath with a glass of wine and no kids to bother me for just an hour. Things that make me feel pretty like pedicures, a new hair style, new workout clothes, stuff like that. As my husband reaches his goals he gets stuff for his paintball gun, ammo for his real guns, man stuff.

I give myself rewards every time I loose 5 pounds. The rewards are anything from pedicures, massages, a new outfit, new workout video or piece of equipment, or if I don't want to spend money then I make a special meal and/or take a nice long relaxing bath with the nice bath salts.

I'm ALways Anchored in my family, friends, faith and health. Are you?

I reward myself by the pound.
Example, when I loose a pound and keep it steady for one week... then I give myself a pedicure or haircut :)

I reward myself every so often with a small piece of dark chocolate or a piece of new exercise equipment or clothing to keep my motivation up.

Sometimes it takes me a long time to decide what I really want, but then once I make that decision, it's hard to change my mind. When it comes to my health,my tactics are more of the "what are a few things that I can do everyday that will make a difference in my health in the long run?" My household has always been super active so I think that was my way of grabbing a little time (and good habits) for myself when there were no big chunks of time.

Buying the piano is a major accomplishment -- lots of patience and dedication there. It stands as a testimonial to your choice for better health!

When I quit smoking over 15 years ago (yay for me!) I put money in a jar everytime I would have bought another pack. I kept putting money in that jar until I paid for a piano I wanted to buy for our family.

Awesome ideas (I like the idea of paying myself!). I looked at swimsuits today, didn't buy, but it made me start thinking of a "dream" suit.

I try to put away $5 for every hour of exercise. And then I can spend it as I want- I try to keep it for fun things I usually wouldn't spend the $ on, like haircuts, etc.

I've been thinking, tho, I might do something like "I can only spend it when I've lost 10 pounds, just to add another layer of motivation.

I think there is a sparkarticle on this topic.
I want to reward myself with ionithermie but that's expensive.
Sometimes a reward can include fitness like taking yourself to a new park or a new venue for exercise.

Taking time for myself seems to be one of the rewards I like the best -- no splitting attention with what I want to do with all the "have to's" becasue I've earned the reward time. That can be preening, reading, surfing the web, whatever floats my boat at that point in time.

I buy myself small little gifts like a new cloths, workout cloths or maybe workout equipment or DVD. AS long as my reward is healthy and possible I feel it is worth the splurge on myself. Thanks emoticon emoticon

how about a special outing such as a festival, or sporting event. i know they all have food but i love them and we try to make the healthiest choices at the food booths. going swimming or for walks in the snow complete with a snow ball fight are fun also. many librarys and schools have movies or wii events that are not connected to food.

as for personal ones, try a massage or pedicure for yourself. a new hair style. a book, new makeup, yoga class. i am currently going to a bridge class as a reward. look in your fri entertainment section of the local paper for tons of ideas for free and very cheap ways to have fun for yourself and your family a family game night is good to get every one in the family to connecting to each other again and you can control the snacks and make healthy versions of old favorites good luck to you
