30 Ways to Reward Yourself!

Earlier, I posted about rewarding yourself. Treats can sometimes undermine the goals we have. Cake, cookies, fancy coffee drinks, and other goodies have so many calories and so little nutritional value. A better way to reward yourself is to choose something that isn’t going to add extra calories but will still make you feel great.

Here’s my list of 30 ways to reward yourself WITHOUT eating! I’ve broken it down into 5 sections: Shopping, Activity, Pamering, Vacation, and Free!
