This whole losing weight/getting fit/working out at 4:45 a.m. thing is hard. Sure, I like the changes I’m seeing. Sure, I feel great. But some days its tough.
I think that you have to reward your efforts.
I’ve been steadily doing the 21 Day Fix for almost 2 weeks now, and I was ready to reward myself. I think you can just feel it. You can tell when its becoming more of a struggle and you need a pat on the back.
So yesterday at lunch, I got a pedicure. I technically should have waited until this weekend to really mark 2 full weeks…but I’m going out of town this weekend…so I rewarded myself on a Wednesday at lunch.
And it felt great.
It didn’t solve all my problems. Eating on plan at dinner last night was still tough. Not having a glass of wine after dinner was tough (I REALLY wanted one!). Getting up this morning to work out was still tough.
But at least I’m earning it. 🙂
I know what my next reward will be. I received a half hour massage certificate for Christmas, and I have it booked for the end of the month – 2 more weeks. If I stick with it, I’m upgrading my half hour to a full hour. Totally.
You gotta do what you gotta do. Do you reward your hard work? I think you should!
