Do you reward yourself with food? I’ve been choosing a little edible treat for years. It’s a habit that goes way back.
Back to when I was 3 and my Mom bought me a treat at the grocery store for good behaviour.
I’ve been rewarding hard work and good behaviour with a little indulgence for way too long!
I think maybe you have too?
It’s time to choose non-food rewards for a job well done.
On our health journey we need to reward ourselves along the way. When the scale says a number we like. When we walk a mile. When we get a compliment. When a pair of jeans is too loose. When we get a good report from the Doctor. When we feel energized and encouraged. When we feel pretty.
Be intentional about setting the time and money aside to reward yourself. You deserve a reward!
We need a reward that won’t sabotage our health journey.
