So, we're encouraged to reward ourselves when we do well. A non-food reward of some kind - a treat, some time to ourselves, a new haircut, whatever.
What about when you screw up? When you run a stop sign, sure, you don't give up stopping. When you spill something on the floor you don't dump the cupboards out. This is no time to slack off or give up. But, you get a fine and lose points off your license, or you have to clean up the mess and maybe lose a priviledge as well.
So, I screwed up. Huge. I need an appropriate punishment. Nothing food or exercise related, because its supposed to be lifestyle and thinking of either as a punishment is counterproductive.
I'm thinking dropping a game this weekend, maybe not letting myself read or play Facebook games for a week.
