This Sparked Me!

I tend to throw in the towel and quit every time i cheated so i decided to allow myself a TREAT everyday.
My secret: I limit this treat to 100 calories. There are lots of pre-packed snacks on the market that are only 100 calories but as time goes by i will package my own.
it works!!! MORE INFORMATION:
if i feel like chocolate i count out the chocolate chips or buy a mini chocolate bar.
if i feel like a salty snack - a bag of Thinsations Bits & Bites.
If I feel like a crunch then i count out my chips.
ONLY 100 CALORIES !
that's the key
my other snacks are healthy...fruit, veggies etc.

    I think this is an awesome idea! I reward myself if I met my goals from the day before, but I make sure I remember to add the treat to my nutrition tracker (extra fat, calories, and carbs won't magically go away because you were good the day before...lol). I also think that people need to really look at what they are considering their 'rewards' to make sure that it's not only diet splurge, but it fulfills the mental/ emotional need a person may have as well. For some people this may be the 100 calorie cookie packs, but for others it may be permission to go actually go out for dinner with their family and split a dessert with their spouse.

    I think you have a great idea! I do this myself and it helps most evenings which are my hard times of the day.
