Now that we are three weeks into the new year you can kind of tell that some people are falling off track. The inspirational Instagram stories aren’t as frequent. The gym isn’t quite as crowded. The grocery store healthy aisles aren’t as busy. But fear not I am here to help! We all want to stay on track so I want to share tools to help stay on track that I use personally that may just help you stay on track with your goals too!
Tools To Help Stay On Track
Apps: I use quite a few apps for different things. I use my Fitbit app to track steps, workouts, and sleep. I also track my water consumption when I am trying to drink more water. I use an app called iTrackBites to track my food. I use super habit for things I want to do daily. My 6 habits are (track food, meditate, 10k steps, do a 1 second a day video, workout, and read for 30 minutes). It’s a really great app if there are things you want to do daily or even a few times a week. I also use an app called To Do List + for my daily to do list. Plus pretty much every Google app there is: Calendar, Docs, Sheets, Keep, etc. If you are trying to stay on track with spending, I love Mint but we personally use Google Sheets to track our joint finances.
Planners: I use a Day Designer planner. Even though I use a Google Calendar too I still LOVE a paper planner! There is a cheaper Day Designer version at Target too! Whatever planner you use just make sure it’s one that fits your specific needs. I have also used Simplified Planners which I love as well.
Accountability: This can be an accountability partner you workout with, or your significant other etc. Andrew and I try to keep each other accountable with steps by challenging each other on Fitbit challenges and we also try to be considerate of the other persons health goals by eating the same things. Accountability is truly key for me. I also post about my monthly goals which really helps. Having the goals posted for all to see really helps me stick to them.
Reminders: Sometimes we need reminders to do even the simplest of things. I am not used to taking any medicine at night, so to remind myself I have our Alexa alert me at 8 PM. That way I am taking the medicine at the exact right time.
I would love to know how you are staying on track this year. Do you use apps, certain things daily. Please share them below!
