oooooooo Margo -- love the colored file card idea!

I've made a 1/2 folder. My food log is front and back on 1/2 sheet of paper (for easier carrying).

But may have to incorporate the colored index cards! wooohoooo

I sometimes use a single colored file card each day. I buy a pack and use them for lots of things like bookmarks, to-do lists, tracking :-) a place to write a quote I like/want to memorize. My favorite use though is I can never remember my cell phone number so I write it large on a file card and then use the cell phone camera to take a picture of it and use that as my "background" picture on my cell phone, LOL. On the gross side, if you have any gaps in your teeth, they work as tooth picks/dental floss too emoticon

I often measure my blood pressure over time and if I'm not in the mood to do it here, downstairs but want to leave my monitor up in my bedroom I'll date/time a file card and put it on my dresser with a pen next to it. Being colored it stands out and reminds me. For that though, post-it notes work as well.

Great idea, Randy!

I'm in the process of making a custom note-pad file that everyone will be able to print off for free, that will have all our points laid out, but I also wanted to note that if you track everything with SparkPeople's trackers, it's pretty easy to recreate all your points for this challenge. Just about everything except the gratitude points is something that we have SP trackers for: food, exercise, steps, water, etc.

That is a great idea! I think I may take advantage of the advice you gave to Randy. I find it hard sometimes to think back and try to remember my tracking points. Your pocket sized notepad just may work for me as well

If you're tired of starting over, stop giving up.

If you like the idea of something you can carry with you, Randy, how about a small, pocket-sized notepad. Put each goal on a seperate page, then check it off as you go. I do this, but on a bigger scale since I'm not out and about like you. Just a thought!

I think I might jump into something like the tracking thread with points at the beginning of the year

at the moment -- I'm trying to decide -- paper tracking -- online tracking --- I need some things for TOPS in paper format -- I can print from online -- but it ends up being bulky

part of me -- likes the idea of paper in a lightweight -- carry-able format ---

I also have my smart phone but it's not always convenient for tracking -- at least I'm not that happy with the sparktracking on my phone.

I did order a new bluetooth keyboard -- so it might be easier to enter some items -- or track easier at a different site --- or use google spreadsheets.

I use good spreadsheets for a lot of tracking with my 100+ FSC challenges.
