Cash And Prizes

”The rewards go to the risk-takers, those who are willing to put their egos on the line and reach out to other people and to a richer, fuller life for themselves.” --Susan RoAne

I've been giving some thought to rewards. I feel like I should give myself one for reaching the 3 month mark and having some results. Of course my first instinct was to take myself to Starbucks and have a coffee and a bar but I quickly reminded myself that we don't reward ourselves with food. *connie rolls her eyes at herself*

205 pounds (10 lb goal) ~ A Deluxe Pedicure
200 pounds (15 lb goal) ~ A One Hour Massage
195 pounds (20 lb goal) ~ Polar Heart Rate Monitor

This one is for when my hips are 40 inches and my waist is 31 inches. (currently 44.5 and 34.75)

Printed Bra Cup Twist Top from Athleta.

Trail Finder Capri from Athleta.


  1. What good prizes Connie! I LOVE that Athleta catalog. I carry mine around with me and drool over everything in it! Doesn't it have the cutest clothes??? I think I am going to order one of the swim dresses - they look so cute.


  2. Rewards are fabulous. Those clothes are gorgeous!! Wish we had that here.

  3. That's a great idea to reward "inches" in addition to pounds. I know I forget all about the inches and get obsessed with the pounds. Thanks for the reminder!

  4. What a hot workout outfit. I can't wait to hear you reached your goals and got one!

  5. I love it! GREAT rewards for yourself :) That top is so cute! (And it's hard - I would first think to reward myself with food too!)

  6. Sounds like a great idea. :-)

    Pedicures always make me feel "pampered" for some reason, and I think a new workout ensemble might motivate me as well. :-)

  7. I think rewarding yourself is a GREAT idea!! Mama needs a new pair of kicks!

    LOVE, love, love you! :)

  8. Those are gorgeous!! Rewards are wonderful ideas!

  9. Such a good idea. I did this sort of thing the last time I had weight to lose. It mostly consisted of new clothes, but it was SO much fun to do when I reached my goals. I need to do that again!

  10. LOVE it ... i love athleta but no matter how thin I ever am I will never get to wear those tops without like 5 sports bras underneath lol!
