I keep a callender that looks like a book to keep record of my acheivements. I break it down into beginning measurements, weekly measurements or monthly, beginning and weekly weight, type and amount of exercises done. In addition I list calories burned per dvd, steps taken, activity level, and meals eaten with calorie count. It is easier to see my progress handwritten vs. on a computer. Recordkeeping has kept me on track, motivated, accountable, and honest.

Sometimes when I get home from work and am especially tired, I tell myself I'm going to skip the exercise. But as I track my breakfast and lunch calories for the work day, I go ahead and track some exercise minutes. Then I put on the exercise clothes. Most of the time, I'll do some exercise. It may not be as much as I tracked and I have to edit my minutes, but sometimes I do more than I expected I could. 33
