Rewards - How do you reward yourself?

Monday, October 01, 2012

Rewards. Choices. I realize lately that when our family indulges in a "treat" it is usually a food item - a snack like ice cream - although that's a rare occassion. More likely it's lunch. Or a treat item at the store - Twizzler's are my hubby's favorite! I brought this up to my husband and we talked about it. I'd really like us to consider other small ways to reward ourselves. I have started a small wish list:

*a new pedometer - mine broke
*a runner's belt
*a new watch (inexpensive) - again mine broke
*a new (inexpensive) purse/backpack - mine ripped!

How and when do you reward yourself? What about a family reward?

    When I lost 35+ pounds, I rewarded myself with a new leather jacket. On sale, of course. ;)

    For a family reward ? hmmm... How about a trip to your favorite local museum ? You could always take the entire family out for a movie. If that's a bit too expensive, you could rent a DVD and have your own movie night at home. pop your own microwave popcorn.

    Of course, depending on where you live, a favorite family outing could be apple picking. That's pretty popular here in New England. Do you have any corn mazes ? those are good family fun too.

    That's great! I love how you incoporate and intertwine your goals and rewards!

    We go on vacation or on a day/ weekend trip. We book it way ahead of time and look forward to it. Most trips also motivate us to stay in shape. For example, we are going to Jamaica in 3 weeks to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. This "reward" also motivated me to sign up for a half marathon the weekend before we leave to motivate me to keep running so I would look and feel healthy on my trip!! I guess my rewards get complicated!
