Sometimes you have to treat yourself

So Monday was family day...and my family was nowhere to be found. Ok, that's a lie. I just didn't go searching them out :P (for those reading, you know that I big puffy heart you). So instead I went to my local Indigo, bought myself an americano and set forth to spend a big honkin' gift certificate that my brother Kevin and his wife Giselle got me for Christmouse (by the way, this is the easiest way to become my favourite person in the whole wide world as I EAT books). Knowing how teeny, tiny the new trackers are at Weight Watchers and how they don't really allow you to track activity well, I found myself not being able to put down this diet and fitness journal. So, I bought it...along with a book by Nick Hornby and another by Vladimir Nabokov. THEN I went and bought something like this to keep my journal and Weight Watchers book in. See, rewards don't always have to be about food. What is something that you've treated yourself to lately, maybe for hitting a goal or just to motivate you, that isn't food related?

I was lured to your blog because of this "swimming in mall fountains". I love your positive outlook.You are a true inspiration indeed :).

I justify buying myself things by reminding myself of just how awesome I am. Pretty sure that's not what you're getting at though ;)

@wandering Thanks! I actually think I'm a negative nelly and if anyone gets more than a laugh out of reading this, I'm way ahead of the game!

what a cute clutch! i've seen other bloggers mention this website so perhaps i should take the time and see what they have... it's always good to treat yourself, regardless of the reason... :)

i haven't bought myself anything lately, as a reward, but maybe i should... might be the extra motivator that i need this time around... :)

I didn't really do anything to deserve it, except make it through one of the most stressful work months of my life!! But, I bought myself some new uber makeup and moisturizer... oh and I'm waiting on some shoes I bought online at the Spring sale!
