My Health Tip Jar

Thursday, October 17, 2013

I came across this idea on the internet and I just love it. I am going to call mine a "Health Tip Jar" because my journey is about getting healthy and feeling healthy. I'm going to set up a chart of how much money to "donate" to the jar for each good deed. I'm also going to force myself to remove the same amount of money if I slip up.

I'm not one to spend money on myself. I will spend it on others or donate it to the charity I work with but never on me. Well this jar is going to be about ME (for the first time ever). When I do something good to move me toward my goal, I will add some money to the jar. I'm going to set milestones and when I reach them I'm going to spend the money on something I want. I think it will make me feel like I'm being rewarded for all my hard work.

I think woman especially need to be rewarded for the things they do. Too often it's just expected of us and rarely do we get a thank you. So....we need to thank ourselves with a little reward.

    That's a great idea....will give you something to work toward knowing there is a "prize" waiting for you after a while
