Default Yay! Ran Out of Stars!

This is kind of goofy, but it keeps me going....

First, let me just be honest and say that I really don't enjoy exercising. I do it because it's good for me, I've been losing weight because of it, and I feel good when it's finished.

I'm also a very visual person. Every time I get to the gym or work out I add a star to my calendar. And the calendar hangs right in front of me. So there's no way I can ignore the fact that I'm missing stars.

The great news is that today when I finished my work out I put my last star on the calendar. I FINISHED MY SHEET OF 100 STARS! I've worked out 100 times! Yay for me!

SO not goofy. When I first started, I had FOUR different activities I tracked (LB strength, UB strength, cardio, and abs). I had a calendar and I'd stick the appropriate sticker for the activity I did on the page, then add up totals for each at the end.

I actually filed them because I was so proud of myself. I think they're a GREAT motivator.

Definitely not goofy! And way to go - 100 stars is nothing to sneeze at!

I do stickers too - I keep a food journal where I write down what I eat every day and the points (WW) - I have smiley face stickers for the days I stay within my alloted daily points, and fun SpongeBob stickers for every day I get 30 minutes of exercise or more. I like buying fun stickers - it brings out the kid in me - and it is awesome to look back and see how many stickers you got for an entire month, year, etc.

WTG!! Who knows, maybe the exercise part will grow on you and you'll end up liking it more. It happened to me.

LOL! I thought I was the only one who used stickers as a motivator!

I use stars for sticking to my eating plan (notice I didn't say diet--that's a four letter word!), and I use little hearts for when I excersize.
