I started saving my favorite motivational quotes from SP to the picture file on my computer so they will be part of my screen saver slideshow. When my screen saver pops up I get to see these great quotes mixed in with pictures of all the people I love. It really helps on those rough days when it would be so easy to run to Starbucks to get a 600 calorie coffee or pastry. It just reminds me what is really important.
Take your favorite motivational quotes and add them to your screen saver. You will be adding positive encouragement throughout the day. (I modified the idea from fellow sparkie DALHUM00 who tacks her favs above her desk. I don't work at a desk, so this works better for me. Thanks again, Dal!)
I have a control Journal which came from the fly lady plan. In the journal I keep my budgets, to do list, shopping list, menu plans, and other helpful information. I decorated it with all my favorite motivational quotes and it keeps me going. Decorating it makes it more fun to carry around and all information I need to remain focused and accountable are in it.
