I did it!

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Sunday, June 02, 2013

Well I did it. Iíve never done it before but I went and did it today. Iíve been told for years I should do it for so many reasons, but I like to buck the system, I need to be different. But I gave in and spent the majority of today doing it!

I actually made a goal board! I even added a calendar with little starts for achieving daily goals. How funny and childish is that! LOL. I feel silly having one but I promised myself I was going to do this in June. I need a jump start. So here it is:



Iíve also put up several motivational pictures on the mirrors in my bathroom. Hopefully this will be a kick in the butt for me. Because, see even though I can do so much more than I could before Iím still struggling to be what I want to be.

So for June Iíve set some extremely tractable goals daily goals:
60 minutes of Cardio Ė gold start on the calendar.
20 minutes of ST Ė silver star on the calendar
In calorie range Ė green star (goal is to be close to 1375, dead middle range)
10 glasses of water Ė blue star
10,000 steps Ė red star

I really need a lot of green and silver starts to make my goals work. So here we go. Welcome to June.

Wish me luck!

    Love this idea! Honestly, I've been lax on putting together my visual motivators myself and have recently been putting thought into how to put it together to best keep me motivated. Hope you don't mind if I borrow some of your ideas!

    Congratulations. I have always had 2 to 3 mini goal pages for different areas of my life. When I do not I tend to slack off in that area

    I did a vision board which is great but I think I need to do a goal board to help with that vision because that goal board makes you more accountable. With the goal board it will be easier to achieve my vision, WOW this is excellent. Thanks.

    What a great, but simple system your calendar is! Project for the summer? Hmmm....maybe I'll bring home some stars and/or stickers I purchased for my classroom.

emoticon for the idea!

    What a wonderful idea. I too have been bucking the system and have never created one of these boards. I've thought about it, but always rejected the idea. I love the idea with the calendar and the different coloured stars. I have a whole bunch of star stickers I got for my kids chore charts for when they were really little that I haven't parted with for some reason. Now I know what to do with them! I think I'll spend some time this weekend creating a board like this. Thanks for the inspiration!
