When I Don'T Feel Like Exercising--I Exercise Because I Can Pull A Reward Card Out Of My Special Gift Bag


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

On those days when I honestly don't feel like exercising, I motivate myself by pulling a reward card out of the special gift bag AFTER I have done my exercising. It keeps me going and I know there are some neat little things I can treat myself to.

I have a very decorative gift bag that I filled with reward cards--3 X 5 cards that I wrote little reward gifts to give myself. For example, give yourself a 20 minute bubble bath ; give yourself a facial; buy yourself a new color of nail polish; call a old friend, etc.

    Sounds good.... what kinds of things do you put in your rewards cards though?
