My lovely friend J, totally inspired this post by instagraming the above photo! Leaving cute little notes for yourself around the house is a fantastic way to keep yourself on track and motivated to follow your resolutions and fitness goals. Anybody that has seen my desk knows that I’m a quote-a-holic, I’ve got brightly colored sticky notes with inspirational sayings everywhere! They’re there for those morning when I’m blankly staring into the abyss while I drink my coffee and need something to kick myself in to gear. Sometimes it takes just one and other times I’ll end up reading my entire wall before getting back to work but either way they serve their purpose as little traffic signs whenever I may veer off the right path.

J’s signs are strategically placed and perfectly fun and positive so that when she’s reaching for that bin of goodies she knows exactly what her bigger goals are. This is a great way to help make your new year’s resolutions stick! Leave a note by where you put your sneakers reminding you why it’s so important to work out or put a note on the cabinet of something you tend to over eat reminding you why it’s so important to you to lose weight or eat healthier. Customize these notes to yourself so that they really trigger you deep down, we all know exercising or eating healthy is good for you but what is in it for you? Maybe you exercise so that you can proudly wear your favorite bikini in the summer or maybe you do it to keep up with your two year old after a long day at work, it doesn’t matter the reason just so long as it’s yours! At the end of the day our actions are a clear reflection of our reasons and our priorities so why not put them on display to make sure you really make it happen this time!

I’d love to see some of your own little notes!
