So now I have to start planning on my reward(s) for 100 pounds lost. And there are definitely going to be some rewards! Originally, when I first started this, I had said at 100 pounds lost I'd like a makeover and a date night with my husband. But, I think I'll push that off for a little bit. Maybe when I reach my original goal, which was 125 pounds lost. I don't want to spend a lot of money/buy new clothes when I'm still hoping to drop a size or two.
One reward is definitely going to be a BIG bouquet of flowers. From me, to me. I love fresh flowers and I had been buying a bouquet for every 10 pounds I lost. But the last couple times I've lost 10 pounds (gotten into a new 'decade'), I've decided to wait and buy a BIG bouquet of flowers. What can I say, they will make me smile!
Another reward is going to be some gambling. Let me be honest, if I lived nearer a casino I would probably have a gambling problem. I love playing some slot machines. But I try to only do it once, maybe twice a year. I went this year on my birthday and actually won, but I think I'm going to have to do it again!
And a third reward will be new running shoes. The shoes I have now work okay, but they are getting worn. And I want to start getting more serious about running. My plan is to start running 5Ks again in September, probably run one a month, and then hopefully work up to a 10K in February. I want to get fitted for running shoes, to make sure I don't have any weird things going on with my feet or the way I run, and then I'll be buying some new ones!
So that's the plan for now. Exciting times!
