Last year my granddaughter told me. "I told myself when I ate my lunch I could have some candy." Do you ever promise yourself a reward when you accomplish a task?
Peanut butter shakes from Cookout are great motivators for me!
I'm going to start a diet and exercise regime and one of the things I do as to not starve myself, get frustrated and then stuff my face with bad foods is to treat myself once a week. I allow myself a meal where I eat whatever I want (within reason.)
I said never androgen I realized that many times my reward is a manhattan, or 2, or 3, or.....
If I made it through this one annoying Dr appointment without being snarky I'd pop by a nearby bakery and get a snicker doodle cookie.
This is how I get through mountains of homework. When I finish a page or assignment I get a break and a treat. Lol.
Yep. I promise myself a nap. :)
By the way it did not work for the granddaughter. She had already had enough candy. I told her I was the one that decided if she could get a reward.
Always. At work I always try to get a big task done before I take my lunch break. Works really well haha
DEFINITELY! Especially when it's something needed, not just wanted.
When I was losing weight I would reach certain goals and get myself jewelry. Today I told myself if I vacuum and pick up I can go to the Goodwill tomorrow when the color prices change.
I do this too. I am a goodwill junkie.
Not at times, all the time!
Yes! Wine is a great motivator for me.
Wino baby. ;P
You and me both!
Yep. I like to wine. :)
As Ogden Nash said "Candy is dandy but liquor is quicker." We had raspberry wine lately it's wonderful. There's cranberry wine locally also.
All the time...
When I stay away from SoH for thirty seconds... I reward myself with SoH.
Sending you hugs sweetheart.
Awe, *hug*. How are you doing, Tops? :D
The loss of my cat has been hitting home today. I've actually allowed myself to cry now. But I'll be better again. Thank you
I'm so, so sorry! )': Losing a pet is like losing a family member. I know exactly how you feel and I sympathize. Have you considered getting another? /:
My husband would murder me if I did. We have to see how things go with my heart before we decide anything like that and then were going to go see our son in San Francisco if it's okay.
Oh gosh, well I really hope everything gets better soon, Tops. ❤ I'm sorry you're going through all that you are... If there's anything I can do to help, please, let me know.
