Necessities and Rewards

Wednesday, December 07, 2011

Since I have really committed to losing weight and living a healthier lifestyle, I realize that there are many things that I need. I also realize that I should reward myself for reaching goals as an effort to stay motivated. For instance, water aerobics is my cardio exercise of choice. However, I only have one swimsuit, in which the chlorine has turned a funky brown, and my water shoes are shot. I have added strength training to my routine. I have only have one pair of yoga pants and two pairs on yoga capris, none of which I have matching shirts for. I also need a food scale and some more food storage containers. I could use a better gym bag, shower shoes, a swim cap (or two), and reusable bottles to hold shampoo and such. So, after the Christmas holidays, I will invest in these items. I think I may even buy an I-pod so that I can download some great workout songs.

Since I am already well on my way to reaching some short-term goals, I may as well reward myself. I have not decided what exactly I will be rewarding myself with. I have not thought through it yet. I have some ideas such as a pedicure, massage, new outfit, new shoes, new gadget, etc. My next assignment for myself is to set some specific goals and rewards associated with those goals. Lemme go, got work to do. emoticon
