Part of this weeks challenge for the BLC#17 we have to make a visual motivator.
This Is from my 100 day of weight loss book.
The Sticker Tracking Plan
For a more visual tracking system, buy a bunch of green, yellow and red stickers or stars. Print off several copies of the Wall Calendar that’s included in your 100 Days Challenge materials. Arrange them on a wall or bulletin board or add them to your Journal notebook.
At the end of each day, evaluate how you did with your program goals. Ask yourself,
“If I lived every day exactly the same as this one, would I be likely to lose, maintain or gain weight?” Then put a sticker on your calendar, using the following criteria:
• Green sticker - Weight Loss Day
Green stands for a solid day on your program. You stayed on your diet plan, perhaps did your exercise, and you managed temptations and food triggers well.
• Yellow sticker - Maintain Day
Yellow means caution— your day could have been better. Maybe you did a little extra eating along with no exercise.
• Red sticker - Gain Day
Red shows you had a poor day on your program. Maybe you had some extra snacks, alcohol or dessert, and you probably skipped your exercise plan.
At the end of each month, step back from your calendar and look at the colored stickers. You’ll have a very clear picture of your actions and why your weight is going up or down.
