17 day streak - My little piggy reward

Wednesday, April 17, 2013

Yesterday I decided that I should reward myself for sparking for two weeks and two days. Funny thing, I didn't even consider food as a reward option. I didn't realize that until this morning. That is a definite shift of things. Probably because all of the healthy food choices I am making now are really satisfying. I am lucky that I love just about all kinds of food, so I am happy with healthy choices of lean meats, fruits, whole grains and vegetables.

I'm planning ahead so that I have good choices available to me all day. I love to graze, so I keep baby carrots and oranges and apples and rice cakes and Laughing Cow cheese handy at work during the day. I'm taking my lunch so that I have something healthy and delicious to enjoy at lunch. Most days I end up at the end of the day with needing to eat another piece of fruit or drink a glass of milk before going to bed to reach my minimum... AND I'm feeling full.... which is important to me... I like volume!

So, no thoughts of milk shakes or raisinettes as a treat... I had a pedicure after work and it was wonderful. Instead of being a little piggy, I pampered my little piggies! It was glorious! I love those massage chairs and the whole experience.

So... both my bathroom scale and my toes are saying...

    What a great reward !!! Way to go for staying on your plan. Hey, have you tried the crinkled sliced carrots? They are in the produce section too. Not every grocery store carries them but they are thinner and easier to eat . I like them with Hummus.
