Food-Tracking Is, Among Other Things, A Reminder And Discipline
Members Were Sparked
On days when I want to break from my healthful, weight-loss manner of eating and feel shaky enough that I will tumble, I quickly jot down the first couple of things that go into my mouth in the morning--usually part of my plan regardless of the cake or grease I'm thinking of for later. Just having the good foods on paper, ready to be copied into Spark later on, often helps me stay on track all day.

In the 'organizer' option in your cell phone, you have a "Notes" option. Add a new note with your action items, grocery list, tasks, chores, etc. Save the note and in the options for the note, select "Show in stand by mode". This list will be displayed on your cell phone wallpaper.
This helps to stay on track with tasks, things I need to do, buy, follow-up on with regards to work or home, as reminder for anyone I have to call, etc
I find that I get tense neck and shoulder muscles when I do cardio. The other day I noticed that when I get to that point where I just have to grin and bear it through the uncomfortable part, I look up at the ceiling. So I put a sticky note on teh spot I look at that says, "pay attention to what your body is doing!".
The instant reminder of what I am doing subconciously is just the kind of feedback I need to keep myself on track!
