With FC (my ultimate "tomorrow") on the horizon - I have been challenged to come up with new and innovative rewards. I am in complete agreement that getting healthier should be my biggest reward - and it will be - but I also like to have the carrot dangling in front of me (see how good I am getting already? working veggies into my blog entries). I don't have a ton of extra cash to go on elaborate shopping sprees - so I am looking for new ideas. Do any of you use a reward system? If so - I would love to hear your ideas for non-food rewards. (if I was on Biggest Loser - you could insert the gratuitous Extra Sugar Free Gum speech here. You want Chocolate cake? Have a 5 calorie piece of gum instead. Riiiiiiiiigggghhht.)
I am going to stay on track, regardless of the reward system (or lack thereof) that I come up with. I will be recruiting friends and family to help keep me busy, and moving. (a couple of friends may even hire me to mow their lawns! yippee!! I can be 13 again! Well, hello calorie burn while in the sun - nice to meet you) Sadly - they won't fire me from the gym for not getting my workouts in (trust me - I have been testing this for years!! As long as you pay your monthly membership fee
I am looking for your ideas - - Do you have any cheap (or free) reward ideas that I might be able to incorporate?
