Hi all! I wanted to share with you something I've done now for 3 weeks. Sitting down at the dining room able recently with my almost three year old, with markers, paper, and poster board, I was doodling and then started thinking about what I can (creatively) do to help myself get moving on the weight loss journey. So I made a big chart (my posterboard is maybe 15 inches by 15 inches) with colorful markers. Along the left side, I wrote down the next 14 days of the month. Along the top, I put things that I'd like to accomplish each of those 14 days. Examples: 100 oz water, 30 minutes cardio, strength, stretch, fruit, fruit, vegetable, vegetable, vegetable, dairy, dairy, dairy, no eating out, no late night eating, no dessert, Bible reading....Then as I accomplish them each day, I put a smile sticker in the boxes. It's actually motivating me and my son loves helping put the stickers on. When I notice I only have a few stickers on for a particular day, it pushes me to get more on there because I display it in my kitchen for anyone to see...I'm midway through my 2nd "challenge" and I am feeling pretty good about what I'm doing and the direction I'm going. The good thing about my 2 week challenges is that I can change the daily goals as I find new things in my life I want to focus on, or if I want to increase my cardio or other fitness goal. I hope this can help someone else too :) Best wishes.
