I blogged a few months ago about my tracking experiment using a planner and stickers. Well, I'm still doing it. Below is a summary with pictures of October through December 2013.
October looks a little busy because I tallied progress with additional stickers on the left. If I earned 3 or more of a color, I got a star for the week. At the end of the month, if I had 3 or more stars of a color, I got a star for the month. Each star for the month earned me a reward. I earned three rewards, but only cashed in one. My husband picked up the Spark for me to read on the plane to visit my daughter.
I used the planner in November and December, but just for tracking, no rewards. It's fun to look back and compare the completed planner pages. November was fairly monochrome with a smattering of 30 minute workouts and only two strength sessions. I did fairly well getting my freggies. I overate on most days, but I recorded everythingl on 13 of 30 days!
December had a hole in the middle where I was overwhelmed with work, but I picked up speed at the end by incorporating a 3 day strength routine and a 60-75 minute workout. I recorded 5 strength sessions in December. My goal in January is 12.
Red Star - Track all food / Stay in Ranges. Usually it just means I tracked it all. Maybe I should circle them when I stay in my ranges.
Green - 5 servings of fruits and vegetables
Blue - Strength Training. I began a 3 day routine on Christmas Eve. I highlighted those days in yellow to remind me.
Silver - 30 minutes of fitness
Gold - 60 minutes of fitness
I earned a $20 gift card through everymove.org at Shoes & Feet, so I'm planning on going there soon to get a new pair of sneaks and maybe new Superfeet inserts.
P.S. I highly recommend the Friday workout of Leslie Sansone's 5 Day Walk Plan. I got the DVD for Christmas. The menu is arranged with a variety of mile workouts in addition to some strength training. I like Friday because it's all 5 miles, plus a stretch at the end. The DVD is nice because it's modular, so you can build your own routines and the music is pretty decent.
