Secrets of Success

Giving Myself Sparkgoodies




Looking @ my Spark Goodies, I realize that the large majority of them were given to me by ME. I use the small tokens as rewards much like I use reward charts in my classroom. I go through the prizes & find the one that speaks to me @ the time & relates to something else I have done in a healthy way for myself. For example, I gave myself fruit when I went to a farmer's market & sneakers when I bought real sneakers to use for walking & to make my feet & back feel good. emoticon

More Information:

I gave myself a bronze medal for one weight. I am giving myself a silver medal when I get to one pound less than I was 17 years ago ( I was there a couple of weeks ago and need to lose this fluid to stay there.) I am giving myself a gold medal when I reach the weight I was 21 years ago. emoticon

  • I started to do this for myself as well. (I just had to get past the feeling strange about giving myself a reward for doing things properly.) It really is a motivation for me to track my food, water, exercise and sleep. Also to reach goals I am setting for myself every month. Moreover, It is quite fun to give the goodies to others who are doing well or even need the encouragement~ emoticon - by KAYAHSLOANE1
