Rewarding the little Things..

Saturday, May 12, 2012

I have decided that in my life I have never really accomplished large goals, although little goals I have followed through with and accomplished.
So.. using that mind set, I have decided that I am going to reward myself for the little things I accomplish.
For example.. I used to drink 20 oz-1 L or Coke (vanilla) a day.. I have not had a coke, let alone a soda, in a little over 15 weeks!!! This may not seem like a whole bunch to others but I know that you all know how big that accomplishment is. So to reward myself.. I bought a new purse with the matching wallet to go with it.. its super awesome and I am totally stoked about using

When I went for my psych eval and passed it.. woot woot!! I bought myself a new pair of flip flops I had my eye on.

For every 5 days of exercising I do, I am buying myself 1 physical book or 2 ebooks..

I realized that by rewarding my smaller goals, they all help me towards the larger goal I am trying for.. It not only keeps me motivated but it keeps me happy as well..
And as any of my family and friends know.. A happy Alisa makes a Happy Everyone
