Are you having trouble sticking with your health and fitness goals? This easy trick might be all you need to get back on a healthy path.
great idea, colorful post its would be good for posting weekly goals in particular.
Great! Thanks for sharing!
This is a very good idea!
I need to do this, especially on the refrigerator.
Good Idea! Something I need to try.
I've stupidly avoided doing this for fear of what other family members will say. But then, those are the same folks who continually bring chocolate goodies in by the Costco size when they're here, and refuse to keep them in their own room so really, I shouldn't care, right?
It works in the start, but after a time, I stopped seeing the notices. I got used to seeing them and just don't look at them anymore than I notice the color of the towels or the texture on the fridge.
That is a great idea. I will try that.
I ABSOLUTELY AGREE !! ALL the way !! I have my weight loss goals on my calendar on phone. It reminds me to make these goals, I HAVE to do things much healthier than I used to. It does NOT mean depriving myself. I DO have sweets only now in their portion size,,, fitting them into my calorie allowance for the day.
"Seeing is BELIEVING" clearly this DOES work.
I was just thinking of doing this and also putting reminders on my phone throughout the day, focusing on the time that is critical-5:00-10:
Today afternoon I decided to write my goals an pt them on the wall and right now I discovered this tip here. So funny, as I almost predicted this tip today :-)
Will do...thanks for the tip
Thank you for sharing this tip!
Good tip, will do that now
I don't know why I didn't think of that. Thank you for sharing Coach Nicole.
