Where has the year gone? It feels like I was just setting goals for the new year and here we are at November and quickly approaching the holidays. I’m determined to not let the normal holiday pounds creep on this year by sticking to my regular exercise routine and focusing on eating clean, whole foods.
Over the past two years, I’ve realized that it’s vitally important to measure your progress on something other than the scale. It’s super motivating to me to look back at the end of the month and see all the workouts I’ve done.
I also included a 2 page layout this month for my Bullet Journal fans, because I know the one page shrunk down to fit into an A5 notebook didn’t leave much room for writing.
HOW TO USE THE CALENDAR:
1) Decide on a minimum exercise goal. This should be something you feel you can do, no matter what. My personal minimum is 3 times a week for 15 minutes, but the majority of the time, I exercise 5 or 6 days for 30 minutes to an hour. But if I get in at least the minimum, I know I’ll keep up the exercise habit.
2) Each day you exercise, mark it off on the calendar. You can simply put a checkmark, or write details about your workout. I like recording what workout I did and tracking my time and mileage when I run.
3) In the Weekly Goals box, come up with a small goal to focus on each week. This doesn’t necessarily have to be an exercise goal. Some examples: Drink water, do something I love every day, eat breakfast first thing in the morning, read a personal development book, etc.
4) Come up with a reward for completing your minimum exercise goal for the entire month, and write it in the Reward Box, or reward yourself each week–it’s up to you!
