It's Friday again and time to post the Monday Challenge project. This was much easier for me to do! I already had it kind of started thanks to my SIL, Sue, who made the awesome corkboard/whiteboard/magnetic workboard thing that I have by my computer.
Our challenge was to put together a motivation board. Be it the fridge or posterboard or a white board or even a closet door. Something, ANYTHING! So, since Sue so kindly gave me this board before Christmas, I thought I'd use that. It sits RIGHT next to my computer so I see it often throughout the day and it's a good reminder of why I'm getting up early to work out.
Here it is:
One of the circles has short term "I CAN..." goals on it. Simple things like "choose smaller portions" and "take a walk". The calendar my eight year old made me for Christmas and has his drawings for each month of the year. I use this for keeping track of what day I'm on for the 30 Day Shred and I have marked the dates to start my training for the 10K I want to do this fall.
The other circle has goals for the year on it. I also have my training schedules hanging there as a CONSTANT reminder that I will work on them. I need to see them to remember to do them so they don't get lost in a pile of paperwork somewhere. I also have a favorite little quote on there to keep me motivated. It says, "A DREAM is just a dream. A GOAL is a dream with a plan and a deadline. -Harvey Mackay"
And, there's room for me to add to it as I see things....maybe I'll print some pix from my two 5K's from last summer as a reminder, too!
