I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

Dear God, please help me to remember that there is nothing that can happen to me that You have not permitted, and that if You have permitted it, You are right with me as I make my way over, under, around, or through it.

Make-up! I'm not much of a make-up person, but I still get a kick out of Bonnie Bell Lip Smackers and wild color nail polish to which I "treat" myself. Hey, fewer calories in chocolate flavoured lip balm than a candy bar, right? And I LOVE tinted moisturizer, which, for me, is as "made up" as I get most of the time.

FILES

Got through your mental images or physical files (favorite pictures, articles, documents, or notes) that motivate you to reach your daily goals.

One successful moment at a time + all the other successful moments = one successful day.
One successful day + all the previous successful days = FINAL VICTORY!

"Don't forget to take a picture of yourself at this time to add to your Weight Loss Journey file!

Vacation!

Vacations are expensive, but maybe a mini-vacation. Even if it's just a vacation from one of your chores. (Maybe hubby will agree to do the dishes for a week when you lose x amount of weight.)

They would not satisfy me for a major goal, but they could be motivational for smaller daily goals.

Rest-take time out for a rest daily. A true rest, not just a snatch. My time is after work, once I exercise. The front porch is my spot. It is totally peaceful, just myself, nature and God. It is spiritual, relaxing and rejuvinating. It's a time of reflection, prayer, and a time to gather my thoughts. It's very beneficial and doesnt have to be a long period of time. It varies but I don't feel so rushed or scattered each evening.

Dear Lord, set my sights on You and Your great attributes. Help me to live in Your presence, dependent on Your guidance each day. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

M - Makeover!

This one could be expensive, but there might be some cheaper ways to get some of the same effects.

Think friends, super sales, clothing swaps, library books for ideas....
... maybe just cleaning your closet and finding a hidden treasure, or a new way of combining things. (Or take in a skirt.)

Books aren't exactly cheap but they make a great reward for an important milestone.

For some I suppose it can be a budget move - I won't buy the book until I have read 10 pounds.

Y = Yak

Is there someone you would like to talk to that you haven't talked to in awhile?

Make a long distance phone call (Check about how to get the best rates - or use a computer program)

Or invite a friend for coffee...

Or plan a walking chat with a special friend!

N - Needed items

Things we need are not always cheap.
... and does buying new pant because the old one too big count as a reward?

We each have to make our own decisions on these things, and it will depend partly on our budget.

However, I am thinking maybe for my next reward I will buy a new medicine cabinet. We have needed one for years, but we keep putting it off. It won't be cheap, but I will be killing 2 birds with one stone.

Two steps in unison towards a better me and a better home.

k - keepsakes

This could be almost anything that you see and touch.

Knicknacks, mugs, photos, a vase or plant...

Hmm, maybe I could buy a small reminder of my weight loss for each room of the house. No one would have to know why they were there, but me. (Unless I chose to share.)

A piece of jewelry can be a nice reminder of a reaching a special landmark goal.

I - Inexpensive treats picked up at the dollar store.

Maybe something fun and frivolous like gel pens, notebooks with fun covers, scarfs...

Either go to the dollar store and buy it, or pick up a few, hide them in a grab bag until you earn them. When you earn one, reach in and pull one out.

H-Hike

This is my reward for all of my successes so far. In Sept we are going to hike up Chimney Rock, at Chimney Rock State Park, the long way, taking advantage of every photo opp along the way. From the top, I'll be able to capture the most beautiful pictures. of the mountain vistas, for a very long distance. Then a visit to the Dupont State Forest to view the waterfalls is another bonus.

I never thought I'd go hiking, or ever be able to. I'm really looking forward to having the strength and endurance to do something like this. Another reward is that my husband wants to hike it too and is really getting into the planning, he's interested in the waterfalls too. He hates to walk at all, even through a parking lot. So this is an additional reward!

Both will be inexpensive and wonderfully rewarding in so many ways.

Dear Lord, set my sights on You and Your great attributes. Help me to live in Your presence, dependent on Your guidance each day. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

G- Go on an adventure. Explore somewhere "different and out of the norm" around wherever you live. There are always free or low cost admission to a state parks, zoo's, or even a local event you wouldn't normally indulge in.

A - At home pedicure

All you need is something to soak your feet in. A pumice stone or sloughing lotion, then some oil or lotion. Feels great, but doesn't cost a fortune. I've paid for a few and when I leave I feel like mostly they have gone heavy on oil.

Think of it as some much needed pampering!

What free or low cost rewards can we give ourselves for achieving our goals?

Can we think of one for each letter of the alphabet?
