Reminders to Stay on Track

Last year (aka Monday of this week) I made a meal plan for myself.

Here's what it looked like:

Dinner Plans for the Week:

Sunday - Chicken and Black Beans over Rice (done)
Monday - Nick's Birthday Dinner (Steak Salad - done)
Tuesday - New Years Eve Party (Lots of goodies - done)
Wednesday - Pork Kielbasa and Sauerkraut with Potatoes (done)
Thursday - Lemon Baked Salmon with Salad (done)
Friday - Flatbread (onion and pepper) Pizzas with Salad
Saturday - Slow Cooker Vegetable and Wild Rice Soup

Last night, I made Lemon Baked Salmon with Salad. I ate it so fast I didn't even take a picture for you. To give you an idea of how it turned out, I'll tell you how I made it. I sliced a fresh lemon and layed the slices on top of the salmon. I sprinkled some parsley on the salmon and baked it at 350 for about 15 minutes. It was amazing. So flavorful! I will definitely be making it this way, again.

We're three days into January, and I am still feeling the extra motivation that I get from the start of a new year. I know this extra boost of motivation will eventually fade, so it's important to take full advantage of the motivation while I've got it!

Yesterday, I ended the day within goal for my nutrition (about 1500 calories), and I got 30 minutes of exercise in through "Just Dance 3". That was a super fun workout!

I'm really looking forward to meeting all of my goals for January:
  1. Take vitamins daily
  2. Log into Healthy Habits e-course daily (
  3. Make meal and exercise plans weekly
  4. Weigh-in weekly with photos for accountability
I've been keeping up with taking vitamins daily and logging into the Healthy Habits e-course, all thanks to keeping a picture of my list of goals on the home screen of my phone.

It's an easy, quick reminder for myself, and it's been keeping me on track!

How do you keep yourself on track with your goals?
