To remind me, I send a list of Spark appointments to myself..ongoing daily, weekly, monthly.. This is done for specific challenges, weigh ins, etc. So each day, week, month I get a reminder of the specifics I am obligate to do that day. It is summarized so I receive 1 email for day., week, month.
Sometimes, I get so caught up in the team needs, I forget what to do for me. This is a great check list for ME

Be Your Own Best Friend! Schedule appointments with yourself!
This month I am using the SparkPeople Planner feature to schedule appointments with myself to exercise, drink the water, take time for strength training, sit down for meditation, etc. You can send yourself daily emails (Jilliam Michaels doesn't have to do it) and remind yourself about your goals, send yourself a motivating quotation, keep appointments to exercise, & congratulate yourself on a job well done! It is amazing how much it is boosting my efforts!!!306
The Planner feature can be accessed from your Start page by clicking on the drop down button titled Planner. Also, you will find it in the middle of your SparkPoints page and you will earn 1 point for each appointment!!!
Treat exercise like any other appointment you have to attend.
Make an appointment with yourself and do NOT cancel!
My gym is two minutes walk away and they have made a deal with me that if I am more than 15 minutes late they will call...unless I have informed them previously of a change in schedule for an important reason.
