100-Day Burpee Challenge: Week 5 Rewarding Yourself

Hello there, fellow challengers! You’ve survived another seven days. Hooray! How are you all feeling?

Now then, I have a very important topic I’d like to discuss: rewarding yourself.

Most of my rewards are food-related, mostly because I love to cook and eat. When I was working out regularly, after a particularly tough workout, I’d stop on the way home and splurge on fancy cheese and apples, or when I was trying to cut back on lattes, I’d treat myself to a latte. For some reason, a little treat added to the thrill of working my muscles to the point of exhaustion. I worked hard, and even if it’s for the five minutes or so that it would take me to drink my latte or eat my fancy cheese, I enjoyed the spoils of victory.

So, my lovelies, how do you reward yourself? Is it after finishing your workout with a glass of really cold chocolate milk (one of my personal favorites)? Are you planning something once the challenge is over to celebrate? Or is maybe just being done for the day reward enough?

Mostly I reward myself by going to bed! On running days, I reward myself by going for a run, which is not something I ever in my wildest dreams thought I would say. But I prefer running to burpees, so there you have it. I also have a pretty chart where I keep track of my burpees and my runs, so I get to break out the colored markers and write down what I did afterwards, which for me is a pretty nice reward.

I think that because the burpees take place at home, and I run outside around my neighborhood, I don’t stop on the way home from working out, and therefore don’t get tempted to reward myself with food/shiny things. It’s probably better in the long run, but I do believe in the power of rewards!
