i enjoy rewarding myself with little rewards for little accomplishments, but today i lacked follow-through, so i re-assessed my goal.
i ran/walked the two-and-a-half-mile loop around our neighborhood. i told myself that the first time i did this in the morning before work, i would reward myself with a pumpkin cream cheese muffin and chai yea from starbucks. but i just felt too guilty. i wouldn't have burned close to as many calories as i would've consumed.
so my new reward is this: the first time i run the whole loop without walking, my reward is a chai tea. mmm... those are so good!
maybe i should think of the run as the reward in and of itself, out maybe the sunrise that comes at the end, but i just can't help it. i like my little rewards. what's life without a little treat now and then?
