Reward System


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

To motivate myself to excersize and eat within my calorie range each week, I have modified a reward system I found on a message board here.
I keep a clear jar on the counter, and a small calendar to highlight days in which I do some kind of excersize.
I reward myself with 1 cent each minute I work out.
One dollar for each pound I lose.
5 dollars for each 5 pound mark.
one dollar per week I eat withing my calorie range all 7 days. ( I allow myself 2 days of per month for TOM)


The money comes from the budgeted amount I have alotted to eat out for lunch each week, as well as the change jar that I have. So it might seem expensive but its really not. Its money I would have spent anyways, but Im putting it towards a bigger goal: my goal- weight reward is a new tattoo.
