Image We Heart It - Edited by myself
You may or may not know that I'm trying to lose weight. I touched on it briefly in my Weight Loss motivation post but haven't said much about it since. Without boring you without all the sweaty details I've lost a total of 26lbs and have a fair few to go. Motivation doesn't come easy to me so when I read Louise's post from Confetti Letters about her Slimming World updates and that she buys herself makeup as a reward when she has reached a goal it gave me an idea.
Now, I'd never thought of this before and commented what a great idea I thought it was. Knowing myself pretty well though I knew as I had the product in my grubby little hands I'd still be struggling to keep motivated to hit my next goal. This is where the beauty box idea came from. I decided that for every 7lbs I lose/have lost I'm going to buy one product I've wanted for a while and pop it in to an old Glossybox and to only open everything once I have reached my final goal. This may sound like a strange, even weird concept to some but I know a box of sparkly new makeup products will keep me motivated along the way and stop me from giving in to the bad things that I love so much, Chocolate and Pizza, I'm looking at you.
So that's the basic jist, if you have any motivation tips and tricks I'd love to hear about them! Also, if you're also on a weight loss journey I'd love to hear about how you're progressing.
