Making a List…Checking It Twice
Okay I know Christmas is long over and I’m not Santa…but I’m making more lists. Lists, lists, and more lists. Do you hear enough of that around here?
I squealed while opening the package at the post office because it was perfect! I might have scared the postal workers a bit…sorry Susan. This is perfect for a list checking fool like me.
My OCD brain is super happy with this book. Just look at it…full of great ways to help anyone who is making health goals and looking for ways to record them. It even comes with it’s own little pen. It’s the little things that count.
For people, like me, making any sort of health and fitness goals this is a wonderful little book. And I do mean little. It fits in my sweatshirt pocket to go to the gym.
Though I’m more likely to throw it in my gym bag.
I have fitness goals and say I’m going to improve my fitness this year but I don’t do well unless they’re in my face. This puts them in my face. The timeframe is only 12 weeks so I’m not overwhelmed…but long enough that I’m not doing it here and there, all willy-nilly.
Even better is the encouragement to look at more than just the scale for results. The scale and I aren’t too friendly lately so the encouragement to notice other changes and goals was motivation I needed.
I’m a big cardio fan but know I need strength, stretching and nutrition in there as well. They’re all accounted for with each week is broken into individual goals – which you know I love- …then broken down further for each day. Did I mention I love lists?
The thing I think everyone can appreciate is the REWARDS!!!!!
Rewards for each week if you complete your goals and rewards for completing all 12 weeks. What you consider success is individual but rewarding yourself for any accomplishments is a great thing. This week my reward is a new book…next week, who knows? But you have to pay for them yourself…so the book isn’t completely perfect. I’ll have to stash $1 for each thing I check off my list to get my rewards.
Now I need to write in my workouts for TEAM HEAB so that we can kick some butt. More and likely they are kicking mine. Ouch I’m sore…I mean thanks Lindsey.
How do you record your fitness?
