Default Rewards?

Hi I was just wondering if anyone had any ideas for rewards? I'm trying to set up a goals/rewards system, and need some ideas! Also, I'd like a majority of them to be free or inexpensive. I want to lose weight, but not money too! Thanks in advance!

I like rewards to be gym-based...so I'll buy a new pair of shorts or a top to keep me motivated. If you're looking at a budget, maybe buy a few songs online to add to an mp3 player, or a new cd. Or even a cushy pair of socks would do it!

Oohh socks! I just bought some for my new shoes and I love them!! How about a night out? Go check out a movie or get a new book from the library.

curling up with a good book, read a motivating fitness magazine, try a new healthy recipie you cooked in your kitchen, have a craft date with youself- find your creative streak or invest more of yourself into a current project (i.e. painting, cross-stitch, sopa making, candle making etc,) call a far away friend or family member, trying a new hot tea flavor, prepare a healthy picninc for you, SO/family/friend or all & go to a local park to eat. If you get to a point where motivation is needed, treat yourself to a personal trainer for 1 or 2 sessions at a local gym. Try a yoga or pilates session, or again, try to have a private/semi private session with a yoga/pilates instructor (yes these can be high, that's why I only recommend it once you have met previous fitness goals and might want to add something else to your workout or have hit a plateu, but they are so wll worth it- if even just once you can go.) Curl up with a good movie and cup of hot tea (or coffee) and relax for the evening. Go shopping for a new shirt/pant/skirt/dress/sweatre etc., Window shop, have a girls night out, treat yourself to a movie, small drink and if you mus a small popcorn with no added butter.)

Maybe a fitness magazine subscription? Most of them are only around $15 or so, and it would be a monthly reminder of your success, not to mention new ideas to keep you motivated!

I'm actually trying to save money so that when I get to my 10% goal, I hope to get a massage (for all the new muscles!)

Thanks everyone! These are all great ideas! I'll have plenty of rewards now, and I'm sure it'll be VERY motivating!

One of my biggest rewards that I have is when I go down a size in clothes. I try on my smaller clothes and see how close I am to fitting. When they fit- well that puts a huge boost in my weight loss challenge. That does not cost anything and it leaves you feeling so good-for days!

Good luck.
