Today I made this bad boy and tacked it up on my fridge:
It’s my new health check calendar. (I stole this idea from Back to her Roots.)
Every day of the month there is a little graphic for each goal that I want to get done. If I do it, I get to colour in the activity with coloured pens. I’m trying to keep myself in line for my waist goals and my other all-around healthy living habits.
It’s like a pretty and colourful checklist.
Did anyone else have an obsession with taking multi-coloured in school? I still remember my colour-coding scheme from university (blue pen for notes, black pen for examples, red pen for titles, purple pen for proofs, etc…). I digress.
Most of my goals are the same for every day, with a few differences in my workouts:
Every Day Goals:
Floss (the dental floss)
Remember to take my Iron supplements (the pill)
Eat a protein rich meal or snack (the egg)
Don’t eat sweets (the cupcake- sidebar: Matt debated the logic of colouring in a dessert graphic if I didn’t eat dessert but I’m sticking with my choice of graphic here)
Weightlift on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday (the arm + barbell)
Sprints or HIIT on Wednesday (runner)
Yoga on Saturday (the yogi)
Long Distance Run on Sunday (the running shoe)
Drink 2L of water – I always forget to do this on the weekends (the glass)
I’m hoping that it will keep me in check with my goals so that I am motivated to come home and colour in my calendar whenever I meet them. I like seeing things get finished. It makes me feel successful. I won’t get anything else for completing my goals aside from the satisfaction of gettin’ ‘er dun.
I know it’s odd to start something like this in the middle of the fourth week of the month, but I figure it’s now or never right? Don’t worry though, tucked in behind the October calendar is already one printed for November. Huzzah!
In classic Sam fashion, I already rearranged my schedule on the first and only day I have coloured in. I decided to weightlift today instead of sprint.
To be honest, I actually forgot today was Wednesday.
