How Do You Reward Yourself?

One of the major lessons on the latest installment of "The Biggest Loser" was food should not be a reward. Ahhh...but it is such an easy and cheap inexpensive reward.

So when you are watching your dough and your waistline, instead of reaching for a cupcake...

I buy clothes, books, jewellery (costume jewellery, of course - quite often much funkier and creative than gold and diamonds!) - though I honestly don't see any problem in having a food as a reward. I have most definitely assigned some food rewards for myself for little challenges, and it DEFINITELY tastes better when you've earned it.

I buy new workout clothes or new running shoes. It always makes me feel more motivated. Sometimes I just go window shopping too...anything to make me feel nice.

I ususally buy a nice nailpolish. Painting my nails is a good reward but also keeps me distracted from eating since I have to wait for my nails to dry. By the time they are dry my craving is gone.

I do the dollar in a jar thing too - and it's great! I usually spend it on a pedicure, but right now I'm working on a new pair of Nike Shox. Hopefully it won't be much longer!

If I work out for one month, at least 4-5 times a week I get a pedicure and manicure... I tell myself if im on my feet with all that hard work..I get to treat them! So far this is going on my third month... Ive toned up a little, I've been trying to eat smaller portions and healthier things... I havent noticed tons of wt. loss or anything..but I'm drinking at least 2 liters of water a day too... I tell myself If I dont drink I cant workout... Those are my rules! I'm thinking about some new rewards to keep myself working hard

i buy workout clothes and if i loose more weight, the bigger my reward will be. it could range from buying a work out t-shirt to a new running shoes or even things that i have been wanting for so long. i delay my gratification and you would appreciate things even more

I go vintage shopping so I dont feel bad about splurging on one high end item somewhere else.
