I love this and am going to do it. What a great point that the celebration jar tells the real story. It will be an excellent way to look at the changes I am making and to keep me going when I want to give up.

Get a jar and pledge some amount of money to yourself for every workout you do and for every meal you do not stray. You are about to get paid for them, whether it's a quarter of a dollar, at the end of the week or month, you may have a manicure or some other great reward for yourself!

A celebration jar tells the real story, not the scale. It tells just how hard you've worked when the scale hasn't budged and how your life really has changed.

I've renamed mine the CELEBRATION JAR because I put something in it for everything I want to celebrate now. Like if I do something in a day that is especially exciting to me that I couldn't do before, I may throw a quarter or 50 cents in as a reminder:
seatbelt fits
fit in booth at restaurant
didn't need extender on airplane seat belt
didn't use walker or cane
stood instead of sat
used a small plate instead of large
exercised 5 min
Ordered medium instead of large
had organic milk instead or regular
bought a veggie tray instead of mcdonalds

just some idead

i started doing this last year when I saw it on a fitness motivation board on pintrest.
I gave my self a dollar every time i worked out at home and five dollars every time I worked out with my trainer.
I earned enough to pay for a couple of months of my gym membership!!

This year I'm saving up for some cute workout clothes!! emoticon

I like this but I hardly ever have cash on me to put in the jar so I will put colored rocks. The ones they use for those plant fish bowls. I will give myself a rock for each day I stay in my calorie range and each day I do at least 30 minutes of exercise. The rocks will be $1 each.

60-100 Pound Losers/ This is for everyone who works at being fitter, whether you see results on the scale or not. The loss of weight is a reward in and of itself, what we want to reward here is fitness habits! Habits are what last and keep us motivated when nothing else does, trust me on this.

So get a jar and pledge some amount of money to yourself for every workout you do and for every meal you do not stray. You are about to get paid for them, whether it's a quarter of a dollar, at the end of the week or month, you may have a manicure or some other great reward for yourself!

What a great idea!!!!! We get so good at beating ourself up, I like your idea Craftsfan about taking it out if you don't do it. Think I will have 2 jars just for that purpose and hopefully the one will always be empty!!!! Not sure what I will do with the money.... but will be fun watching it build up. And will get me back to exercising like I need to. Thanks Beth emoticon

I am in! I need to save $200 for a sous vide machine. I am going to save 50 cents every time that I eat what I have planned and every 10 minutes of exercise. If I don't have money to save, then I am going to put a bean or a chip. If I break something, then I am going to withdraw 25 cents.
