I have a new goal!

Thursday, October 24, 2013

Hi everyone,

emoticon I was checking out Pixielicious's blog last night, and she inspired me. Her blog was about how much progress she could make if she gave it her all from now till New Year's day. So that got me thinking.... I can do this, too!

emoticon I decided to create a page, well... two pages, really. The first page is set up like a calendar with 70 cells. The first cell reads 70, the next 69, and so forth - counting down to day 1 - the last day. Each day that I faithfully do my best, I will cross off that day before turning in at night.

emoticon The second page contains the same cells, but not the same content. First I wrote the date (ie. Oct/23). (I dated each cell leading up to Dec/31.) Beneath the date I wrote FOOD, and beneath that FITNESS MINUTES.

emoticon emoticon I will check off FOOD when I am done tracking for the day, and I will enter the number of minutes spent in exercise.

I printed both pages out on thick card paper, so I can post them up and write on it with ease, I'm excited!

    That sounds like a pretty awesome idea. I think I'd like to try that idea. Thank you for sharing this good tip.

Have a good weekend!

    Thats a great idea. I also saw someone has a calender that has a stripe in the middle of each day. The top is for food accuracy and the bottom is for fitness. She writes her success or failure in percentages to try and keep her focused from now to the end of the year. Such interesting ideas people come up with.
