Reward system is a good way to go. It's especially great if you have a big goal for the end. For example, your health insurance rates will go down if you get your BMI down to "blank" and mark it as a reminder goal wait. Or, you'll allow yourself a few new shirts and pants when you get to "blank" goal wait.

I like the reward system. I use that. I battle the winter blues some times and the other day I needed to get on my treadmill. I did not want to. But I said if I did I would reward myself with a new pair of capri workout pants I found I liked. So now today I am wearing those pants. Got on the treadmill and got my reward. Wore them today for weight lifting class.

I put it in my daily reminder on the Ipod, so each night the Ipod buzzes if I haven't checked it off already!!

I plan to exercise everyday. I end up exercising 5-6 days/week.

Yes I have a Training Log that I use and I put it on the Family Calendar. I plan my workouts in two week blocks.

Congrats on the loss!

Making a workout calandar is a great way to remind yourself to exercise and keep track of your exercise record........when I did that I totally AVOIDED walking by my calandar, LOL!

If this'll work for you that's great but for me, I had to make it so much of an everyday part of my life (like breathing & eating) that I didn't need to use a reminder system, I simply did it and still do.

if you have an electronic calendar you could schedule them in that, too, and even set up a reminder

I plan my workouts a week ahead and write them in my diary so I can't "forget" what I am meant to be doing on any given day.

Good job on your loss!
I do the same with a calendar, and I mark every day that I make fitness and nutrition goals, then 'pay myself' at the end of the week. I have a penny jar and put my pay in that, that's for me to reward myself however I want, hair done, nails, etc.

So this weekend I created a workout calendar to plan my workouts each week. I posted it next to our family dry/erase board to encourage and remind myself to workout each day! Does anyone else have any good ideas for staying on track? I'm also very excited to have lost 5 pounds since the first of the year!
