Motivation & Reward

This Sparked Me!

I reward myself with one dime for every 10 minutes of exercise and keep them in a pretty jar where I can see them as a reminder. Those dimes add up quickly and when I lose 10 pounds I will reward myself by buying something with the money I've saved.

    This is such a great idea. I find it very difficult to exercise, but adding in a reward as an extra motivator would certainly add encouragement. emoticon

    O! I love that idea, too! You mentioned dimes and it made me think of one of my grandmothers who, back in the 1940s saved enough dimes to buy her first washing machine. ;)
