Rewarding myself with sweets for doing well negates the whole purpose.
Time after time, I used to have a good week. I ate well, I went to the gym, and boom, I thought I deserved a bag of sweets, after all, I did so well that week.
Time after time, I went to the gym, and walked out of there going straight to the corner shop to buy something to reward myself for going to the gym.
After all, I “burned” 300 calories in the treadmill, or the crosstrainer, no?
It wasn’t always sweets, sometimes it was a take away, or dessert, or anything else that didn’t really serve me.
And then, surprise surprise, after a few weeks, I just didn’t see the results I was so hoping for, or even expected.
I would like to think that I’m an intelligent person, but never really did I realise, or think that I was totally negating the work I did by rewarding myself with sweets or food in general.
Reward should only come after reaching specific milestones, and then be non food related.
