Post-it Notes

I make to-do lists everyday for work, so why not implement this same theory in my home life? I feel like I should have done this ages ago. So here it goes!

This was my list. I was proud of it. Not too long and easily attainable! If only I stick to it!

And this is what happened. Ugh. I have no motivation and need to start getting my tush in gear.

How do you stay motivated? What is your advice? And do you think it's ok to eat pizza everyday? :)


  1. Put reminders up, or goals you want to attain. "I want to lose 3 pounds this month."

    Instead of wanting to completely eat healthy, sit down and write what a normal day's food consists of. Make two changes to if as a goal for the month. Ex/ you have coffee with half and half in the AM, change it to skim (or buy super skim milk, that tastes just like whole). ex2/ instead of icecream have sorbet.

    Take a gym bag with you to work and DONT GO HOME, go straight to the gym. Join a class, make sure you go weekly. Get a buddy.

    miss you biggins, xo

  2. @Nic You know, putting a gym bag in my car is a genius idea. Seriously, a soon as I go home I put pjs on. I like it! All your ideas are great hon! Just like you :) I miss you too!!!!

  3. a) i once ate pizza for 7 days in a row and then felt sick for 2-3 days after. i love pizza though.
    b) for me, i really have to work out in the morning or i won't go after work. i'm just too tired. i never thought i could get up and go in the morning, but it turns out getting up before you want sucks just as bad whether it's at 5:15 am for the gym or 6:45 am for work...!

  4. I totally agree with Nic! I have to just make myself do stuff before the whole "aaaaah, I'm home" thing sinks in. :)

  5. Ughhh I hear you, I often do the same thing. On the way home I think "I'm gonna do yoga today!" Then I somehow end up on the bed watching TV. Mysterious. But I like Nic's ideas, too!

  6. I LOVE pizza, but I think it's best to keep it as a once-a-week treat. I also have the tendency to eat a whole medium pizza in one night by myself, so it's best for me not to get pizza at all.

    It's hard to stick to goals, but keep writing them down and have a larger goal in front of you as well as a reward for your success!

    Stopping by from Follow Friday. :)

  7. Haha! This sounds like the way my lists go :). And pizza is VERY nutritional!!
