Hi there,

I want to reward myself without overeating/consuming my favorite junk foods. Anything that gets in the way of my goal is a hindrance - so what else can I indulge in?

Here is a personal list of things that make me just as happy as a french fries and a milkshake :)

Please add on your "look-forward-to's" as well!

- Watching that new episode of your favorite series
-Taking a long, hot bath
-Getting your nails done
-Meeting up with friends for some good laughs
-Buying a new pair of shoes

Now, tell me yours!

    I will sit down and watch one of my favorite chick flicks, and paint my nails.
    Watching youtube videos and finding fun ways to fix my hair/makeup and getting all prettied up - great for self-esteem
    tanning bed (but not that often) or just laying out in the sun to tan
    taking over the house with my music or audio book..
    zumba! I love to zumba. I am a mom, so most the time I have to pay for a sitter to it's a
    for a bigger reward, I will go see a movie in the theaters, or live theater which is a good time...even if it's for the kids
    Dancing with the girls (after one of those makeover sessions..just like getting ready for prom..)

    On-line window shopping for clothes at my favourite stores (google Tia Star - her stuff is awesome!) helps keep me motivated and distracted from food. Also, I make an iced coffee while I do it - let strong coffee chill overnight in the fridge and add lots of milk and a drop of 5% cream - really tasty and low-fat!

    I signed up for 2 5k runs, one in September and another towards the end of October. So this week I've started the Couch 2 5k program to prepare! When I find myself lurking in front of the fridge or in the kitchen wondering aimlessly, I know I am not really hungry, just bored. I find a good movie on tv, grab my running shoes and hit the gym, or workout on the Xbox Kinect. Also, calling a friend helps keep my mind off of the kitchen. :)
