My Valentine's Day Gift to Myself!

Sunday, February 15, 2009

Valentine’s Day has come and gone, but what remains is the gift I bought for myself! Over a month ago, I made a goal to reward myself for my health, weight loss and fitness goals, and this is my chosen reward— a beautiful ruby pendant. I wore it out with my husband for our Valentine’s Day dinner, and while my husband is very generous and gave me a lovely gift, this one meant more because I earned it!

Don’t forget to reward yourself for your efforts. If you won’t pamper yourself, who will?!! You deserve recognition for your efforts, no matter how big or small they may be. Start treating yourself like royalty today. I did!

    Very pretty! And GOOD FOR YOU!!! What a great idea!

    I dread Valentine's Day more each year - I'm single and it seems like everyone else on the planet has a lovey dovey partner. This year I decided that I would be my own Valentine which requires me to love myself. That's a tall order for some of us trying to lose weight and get in shape, the self criticism comes so easily when the jeans are still tight or the scale won't budge. So it was more of a challenge than a selfish or narcissistic agenda. I didn't buy myself a present but you better believe next year I will!! This is a great idea. I might even send myself a romantic Valentine's Day card!

    Well you deserve this beautiful gift to yourself!! It is REALLY very gorgeous!!! Just think, everytime you wear it you can think of what you have accomplished and be proud of yourself. It's almost like you are 'wearing' a pat on the back.

    Congratulations on your accomplishments! Have a great day on Tuesday. May all your students be happy, smiley ones.
