I got a way for you to tweak that idea (which is excellent, btw). Write down on paper, at the start of each week, what exercises you will do on what day and write down all the food you KNOW you can eat (allowed calorie intake).
Writting it down makes it more real and keeps you accountable. It'll take less than a half hour to do that to NOT do that is a sign you may NOT be ready to lose any weight. I do this and it works.
My Resolution is to work on short term goal setting. I have often found myself setting the resolution of losing 50 pounds this year, but no longer. My resolution is that each day I am going to get out of bed, set a goal for the day...whatever it may be, and not worry about tomorrow, as each day has enough trouble of its own.
