How do you reward yourself after you have worked hard towards a goal? Do you have any pampering rewards thought out for future goals?
Well, if I reach a goal, I usually get rewarded with iTunes, or shopping for a new favorite dress at Target (they have some really cute dresses!), or I get to order from one, or sometimes more than one, of my favorite sites (EdenFantasys, EyesLipsFace, ShopTheLook).I love those rewards. Nothing there is harmful to my health, nothing requires calorie counting, I don’t need to watch how much I use of them, I can have as much as I want. Its much better filling my online cart up, than filling myself with fattening foods at my favorite restaurants (I swear, is AppleBees, the Keg steakhouse, or IHOP). I think its much more rewarding, and it lasts much longer than food.
I would love to hear how you reward yourself.
Alright. So with that said…
This week has been interesting. I had to resign my position at Uhaul, because my internet is not what it needs to be to work from home. So – long story short, the other ISP in my area actually doesn’t provide service to my zip code. Not like were in the middle of the desert. We are in the middle of the city. and actually, my neighbor is in the other zip code, that does get serviced. I was pissed, and posted it on their Facebook wall, saying how can someone 10feet away get service, but I cannot!? So because of that, they are doing what usually takes a year, in only 4-6 weeks! So my manager told me that it would be best to resign, and he would put in the paperwork what is going on, that way when it is fixed, I can get my position back. Woo! So about June or so, I will have it back… BUT, I have gotten a job that is part time. Its with a company that does market research. Pay is hourly, and decent. I like it, I start Monday. I am excited. Its also at home. So I got rewarded with a $30 haul from EyesLipsFace – Ooh how I love makeup!
I went to my doctor to do a pregnancy test. I am not pregnant. That sucks. But since I am not, I am back on depo for birth control. This will allow me to focus on loosing weight. I plan 3 years. Then I should be down by 100 pounds – or close – and then I can try again for having a baby. I am putting my ass in gear. He is referring me to a bariatric doctor to get me with a nutritionist and whatever else he can do.
I told my doctor that I am excessively thirsty. I asked what can cause that. I mean literally, a 2ltr of pop a day – or more if I allow myself. But I am drinking water by the gallon. Daily. Sometimes more than a gallon… What is wrong? He said it could be a pre signifier for diabetes!!!! Omg, are you kidding me?! so I think they are gonna have me do blood work to be sure. But jeez, I hope I do not have that. It would mess me up bad!!! Another reason to get my butt in gear.
In other news. I plan on turning into the crazy coupon lady! I want to save money like those people on extreme couponing in TLC do. Its amazing what they can do. I cannot wait. Ill let you know how that goes.
Alright. Im off for now.. Im tired, and I gotta work tomorrow…
