My goal reminder bracelet

Sunday, January 06, 2013

I had this idea last week while I was shopping at JoAnn's Craft store. I have been looking for a bracelet that said STRENGTH to remind me of my ONE WORD for the year, and I haven't been able to find one yet. So I came up with this idea to help me have a constant reminder of my goals. I have been wearing this goal reminder bracelet daily this week and found that it really helps me think about what I am eating, reminding me to get my workouts in, and overall to make healthy choices.

Initially, my bracelet was set up to remind me of my goal weight (1 bead, spacer, 3 beads, spacer, 5 beads= 135 pounds!)

But I have also started using it to remind me of other goals:
9 beads = 9 workouts I want to do each week, one per day and 2 on the weekends)

9 beads= 9 cups of water I need to take in daily.

9 beads= 900 calories I want to stay under during the day (breakfast/ lunch/ snack) so I have room for a healthy dinner and small snack still when I get home

Just wanted to share one way I have found motivation this week. I like having this constant reminder on my wrist of my goals and what I am working so hard to achieve. Let's make it a great week!

    That's awesome! Like the "can do" attitude, if it doesn't exist, make it yourself!

    Great idea! I used to have a multi-colored blessed string bracelet that I would wear for 3-4 months to remind me to eat all the colors of the rainbow. While the strings wears out a bit too quickly, the good habit remains. I continue to love my freggies (even if the last two Living the Good Life Challenges limit this weekly challenge to 10 points . . . guess I enjoy pushing the envelop as much as I can in some areas)! Have a great week! Hug, hug -- Evelyn
