I am finally getting the motivation to stay on the second part of my weight loss journey and it is starting to feel like a routine. I find that when I plan and am super organized it is easy for me to stay on track, eat the right things and have time to exercise. I love using a planner but I don't always update it on time or have it next to me.
I wanted something big and visual so I decided to create a command center in my living room because it's the room that I am at the most in my house. I found these really cool wall organizing/planning squares in Target that I have been deciding what to do with, so this was perfect!
I have a huge White Board calender decal that I will be writing my events, exercise of the day and monthly goals on. Eventually I want to plan a whole month at time so that I can be super organized and prepared. Until I get into the swing of things I am planning out one week at a time.
The white board square is my daily menu. This way I can visually see what I am going to eat for the day and I can avoid just picking something out of the fridge and mindlessly eating. I also added my snacks so that I can have those ready for when I get hungry in between means.
The magnetic square is going to be used to hold things like my exercise cards, magazine clippings and pens and chalk.
Of course I have to have some kind of inspiration/motivation so I created a "One Pound At a Time" printable. Sometimes I see the big number of weight I have to lose and get discouraged. Thinking about it as one pound at a time definitely seems more doable! You can also download and print my Food/Exercise and Water Signs.
This is my basic command center for now and I will be adding to it and sharing it as I go along. I also will be changing up the inspiration/motivation poster every month so stay tuned for more printables!
How do you keep track of your health and exercise efforts?
