I’ve been thinking about rewarding myself when I reach a goal. I have not come up with anything yet. I hate the thought of rewarding myself with food, because that’s the problem to begin with. If I reward myself with food, it will confuse my brain and I’m afraid I will be telling myself its okay to eat. I know some people say go out and buy well you know that could contribute to spending money I don’t have. You see we have gotten into such a thing about rewards of doing the right thing, why not just do the right thing and realize in your head you are doing the right thing by not stuffing your face and moving your body. That is something we probably should do without rewards, but just to stay healthy. When I was growing up kids or people didn’t get rewards, you just were supposed to do the right thing. Now this is what I’m trying to convince myself, is that I need to take care of my body even at this late stage of my life. God only gave me this one body and this one life time to do the right thing. You see my dilemma, maybe its your too. I just would like a little praise and a word you’re doing a great job, which I’m getting from the followers of this blog, my husband and my family. I think that should be enough.
You see I knew I could talk about this with my friends here on the blog and you would understand then I would come up with a solution to my problem. Thanks for letting me vent my frustration of rewarding for doing what I should be doing in the first place. I will be having surgery on my eye today. Please say a prayer for me. Will talk at you soon.
