Earlier today I was chatting with my sister keeks over Viber and we were talking about rewarding yourself with non-food things. I definitely look to food and drink to reward me, whether it’s for a really healthy week, lots of exercise or celebrating an occasion or achievement. This got me thinking though, should I be looking to reward myself without involving food? I probably should shift my thinking…
…so after work I hit the shops and spent a fortune in H&M (I blame keeks)! However I was celebrating in a way because…
Big news! I now officially fall in the ‘healthy weight’ category! Albeit at the top end but that was my first goal at the start of the year and I’ve made it! Woo!
I know the pitfalls with using BMI as a health indicator and understand that it has its downfalls but since exercising and strength training I have put on a bit of muscle so I’m quite confident I do now belong in this category.
So to reward myself in a ‘non-food’ way I decided some new work clothes and most importantly gym clothes should be purchased. H&M has so much great stuff in just now and it’s really affordable…unless you buy half the shop!
I treated myself to 3 work tops, 1 pair of work trousers, 3 gym tops and 3 pairs of gym leggings. Here’s a wee peek of the gym-wear.
And if you look really close you might just see a gun show…
…ok I might still have some work to do on the muscles but they’re slowly coming along!
I feel much better having celebrated with new gym clothes rather than food because I know I’ll make all my gym classes this week just to show them off! I even had a kale salad for dinner tonight because I really want to keep up the good work.
yes there’s bacon in there ignore that
