Everyday Rewards

Wednesday, August 13, 2008

I am so excited to get my massage once I reach my goal weight. It will be a reward well-deserved.

Until then, I have been rewarding myself with little things each day.

-enjoying a cup of hot chocolate
-soaking in the bathtub
-painting my toenails
-reading a magazine from cover to cover
-eating tons of watermelon...seriously, i've probably eaten two whole watermelons in the past month
-renting a movie and enjoying a big bowl of popcorn
-playing card games with my husband
-cooking myself a healthy 'gourmet' meal
-cuddling on the couch
-playing with my kitty
-allowing myself to do nothing for the evening

I know this is totally cliche, but sometimes I need to remind myself to enjoy the little things. If I can start to view each of these as a special treat, I think I will start to see my attitude become more and more positive each day.

    Hi Stronginthecity, my name is Naturesown and I am just feeling my way around the site and read your blog. You know I have been having those same thoughts here lately, learning to appreciate the small things in life, and being more positive helps in all aspects in life, home, job, and raising your children. Thanks for that reminder.
