Using a Calendar to Stay Motivated!

I am a person who has always kept a planner so that I can keep my life in order.  It came in particularly handy while I was balancing three jobs and a bunch of other activities.  I have now found another use for keep myself motivated about going to the gym.  I mark down each day that I get myself to the gym in my planner.  I do this on the monthly calendar part.  I use Avery Removable Color Coding Labels: See Through Round Color Coding Labels
