It’s the little things…

One thing I did to keep me motivated to work out during the month of July was to write down my workout each day and put a sticker on the calendar for those days. Yes, I’m sure it sounds silly & maybe childish. But after I started I was so excited and wanted to fill up that calendar!

I used some free {sesame street} stickers I randomly got in the mail {side note: when you have a baby, you somehow get lots of random things in the mail!}. I just keep a sheet of stickers clipped to the back of my calendar.

I printed each month through the end of the year, so when August 1st came I was ready for a new month!

What do you do to keep yourself motivated to get those workouts in or meet your workout goals?

Hey, I'd workout for a Sesame Street sticker too:) I can usually motivate myself to exercise because it is such a habit. I need my motivation to keep my calories in check - that is a constant struggle.

I LOVE the sticker idea. I'm going to give that a try.

I started to mark my training on my wall calendar this past week too. I like "filling it up". Stickers are a great idea. I may use that at some point!

Its a novel idea ! Really i never thought of it. kudos!! Motivation is the key factor in weight loss. Most people lose motivation and i think you have channeled your efforts properly . i would recommend you to take Proactol plus with your exercise and diet, it aids in weight loss and is 100% organic and effective and most of all safe.

Thats a great idea that I will suggest to my wife. Im sure the kids will enjoy helping Mommy fill it out. I have 2 boys who LOVE stickers. The new me enjoys exercising so I really dont need any extra mo' to get outside. If I did, I just needed to look at a pic of me at 340 lbs, thats all the motivation I needed. lol
