Treat Yo' Self.

Oh, Parks and Rec, I love you so.

Have you ever seen that episode of Parks & Rec where Tom and Donna explain Treat Yo' Self Day? If not, WHY? YOU NEED TO BE WATCHING PARKS AND REC. If so, congrats. You are very cool and awesome and you have good taste. 

In my weight loss journey I've been trying to keep myself motivated in different ways--hanging old clothes that no longer fit in plain sight to get myself excited to wear them again, watching reruns of my beloved Ugly Betty while I'm on the treadmill, and spending hours on Pinterest in the name of "healthy lifestyle research." I've heard a lot of people say they stay motivated by giving themselves small (non-food) rewards when they achieve a goal. I've decided to hop on that bandwagon and reward myself for every ten pounds lost. In the effort of simplifying and trying to save money, I saved the more expensive rewards for later down the line to give myself time to save up.

How do you reward yourself for goals achieved?
