I am not very good at rewarding myself. I guess it's cause I do little things for myself all the time. Nothing when I complete a goal. Oh, that's cause I haven't really made any goals.

Congrats on reaching Bullhead City (be sure to go across the river to Laughlin and win some money at the casinos!!) Just kidding! - great job on your biking thus far and I like the idea of getting the streamers.

I don't usually reward myself and that is probably a big mistake. If I planned ahead and had a reward in mind it might be that extra push that I need to keep going....just a thought!

I did it..I did it...I did it!!! WHOOOOOHOOOOO!

I biked my 1st 100 miles but rather than stopping, I kept on going...I passed up the ARIZONA state line and I REACHED MY 3RD 'virtual' destination...Bullhead City, AZ....3 goals in one day!!

Thank you all sooo very much for letting me know how you reward yourself...those are awesome idea's.
I'm think I'm going to start by taking a well deserved day off, lol....ohhh and I think I'm going to buy streamers for my bike. ROFL!

Your looking for a big reward. Day trip to somewhere you never have gone, massage, pedicure, something neat for your bike or bike wear.
As far as rewards go I have to reward myself for even staying on track or exercising regularly because my weight loss is so slow. I use quiet time lay down and watch show or read free time, flavored water, and flowers for small rewards.

My life tomorrow will be the result of my attitudes and the choices I make today.

I reward myself every week. If I stick to my goals for the week, I'll buy myself a pair of earrings or a lip gloss. Nothing expensive, just a little treat.

That last idea is so good I am going to steal it. Usually I just kind of sluff of doing well thinking doing well is its own reward.

I usually treat myself to a new sports bra/work out pant since they can be pricey. It's always a nice feeling having that new work out top or pant on for the next work out, makes me feel accomplished. emoticon

For me, reaching a goal is the reward.

**LINDA**

Weight loss is accomplished with the mind.


A person who wants something WILL find a way....a person who doesn't will find an excuse.

Which do you prefer?
The pain of self discipline?....or...the pain of self regret?

I take the time to have something special done - manicure or pedicure. Nice colors for the nails.

I was curious to see how you reward yourself when you reach a personal goal. Whether it be a fitness goal or weight loss goal..what do you do, if anything, to celebrate these types of 'milestones'?

I'm about to hit my 100th mile on my 'Biking Across America' journey... emoticon
I only have 11.4 miles to go and was just sitting here thinking about how I can reward myself for accomplishing this milestone...

Any idea's on how I could celebrate?
