I feel really good when I use my "candle" reward while cleaning the house. When I have completed a room I light a candle in that room. It adds ambiance and aroma to the cleaned room and each time I see it I can say "good job"

Sunday Spring/Summer Cleaning - Music does wonders
Time flies and the house gets cleaned with good tunes in the air...just turn on some music and start the day. I managed to get so much done on Sunday I rewarded myself with a nap. Music and cleaning - a match.
I created a list of rewards for each 10 lb milestone. Each reward is better than the previous one. For example, my rewards are: Spark Goodie, new workout gear, dragon figurine, leather jacket, professional family photo, and a full spa day when I hit goal. My reward for my stretch goal is a Past, Present, and Future diamond ring. Now that's worth some time on the elliptical!
