Default Star Chart

I've decided to follow my friends who reward their kids good behaviour with a star chart.

Have just printed a graph out labelled Monday thru to Sunday and will award myself a star on each day that I exercise.

I'm going to put it on my bedroom door next to an old skinny photo and a recent fat photo.

Here's hoping that it does great things for my motivation!

Default star chart

I have a wall calendar up next to my bed and everytime I workout, I put a sticker up. It's very rewarding to see all those days filled up with stickers. To me, it's an eyesore to see a "hole" during the week, so I try to keep it as filled up as possible. This keeps me very motivated.

I think I'm going to do it like the points challenge. I'll get those tiny little stars or smiley faces and I'll do one for calories, one for exercise, one for water, and one for protein. I'm excited, I can't wait to go get a new calendar and some stickers!

Default Another Star

Well I'm sure that all the work you did with the pool would have burned a few calories!

I only just made it to the gym last night. I really didn't want to go and with a sore knee I had a good excuse not to. I was actually in my car about to drive home when I turned around and went to the gym and did 30 minutes cycling Man, I was so glad I went!

The star chart is working really well for me because I hate the way it looks if I don't get to put a star on. Thinking about a star-less day on my chart was what got me there so that's gotta be a good thing.

Keep up the good work y'all!!

Well, I skipped the gym yesterday because I had other plans but I've got my gear in the car and I plan to go today. Now this is a big thing for me because I NEVER go to the gym on a Friday! I always think that because it's the start of the weekend I should go home and relax but my star chart is not as colourful as I'd like it to be and I need to earn myself another star!

Keep going ladies ... we're all doing well!
