Let's make a deal

Do you ever do that with yourself?  If I do this...then I get this.  If you do...are you disciplined enough to keep it?  Do you promise yourself rewards if you keep up with your exercise schedule or scripture reading?

So... I saw these shoes down at the City Creek Shopping Center.  I was just wandering around during my lunch hour and I saw these little beauties.
Not only are they wedges, but they were canvas with red cherries.  How could I pass them up?  Well, I did.  The next day I couldn't get these way cute shoes out of my mind, they were affordable and I really wanted them.   So I told myself that if I ate healthy lunches brought from home for the rest of the week, I could have them.  Let me tell you that I love french fries.  I was having a serious craving for chicken strips and fries. (This is the part where Ralph laughs)  I bought the shoes - so now I had the reward before the commitment from me was even finished.  I have to say, I have stuck with it and honestly earned my shoes and I love them!   I guess the real funny part is - would I have eaten healthy lunches all week without the shoes?  Probably.  Just an excuse to justifying buying cute shoes.

Hmmm - what could I find as a reward for next week?  LOL 

Here's to veggies, fruit, lean meat and high fiber grains!!!!
