Each week, I fold a 4x6 index card in fourths. This gives 8 columns (counting front and back sides) of 1.5"x4" each. At the top of each column, I put the day of the week and date. I use the 8th one for a shopping list. I put my "to do" list on the top third, my "to e-mail" list mid third, and appointments at the bottom of each day's column. It can be folded so the current day is showing, and it's easy to turn and add reminders during the week. I keep it in my pocket or purse, so it's always
handy for jotting notes as things come up, or writing down contact information! I use a compact, fine point pen that I keep with the list. At the end of the week, I transfer anything that didn't get done to the next week's list, and file the old one for a reference. Beats lugging an agenda!

Tired of not getting everything crossed off that "To Do List" each day?? Instead of doing a To Do List....I now do a "Done Did List"!! What I do is, as I complete or accomplish as task, I ADD it to my list of what I HAVE done that day!
Now instead of dealing with a list of anywhere from 5-10 things that maybe half were not getting done daily, I now consistently have a list of anywhere from 5-10 things that ARE getting done daily.
And best of all? No more anxiety that I didn't get this or that done that is now put off till tomorrow AGAIN...and lots of good feelings that I have this list of what I "Done Did" that day and nothing put over to another day.
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.
