I just printed several of your year-at-a-glance calendars to go with Money Saving Mom’s Make Over Your Morning eClass. I’m going to be recording things like water and vegetable intake, exercise, reading fiction and nonfiction, up by 7, devotions, etc. I think seeing the streaks are going to be very helpful and I’m glad the calendars are little. Alejandra Costello gave me the idea originally.
Thanks for making these available!
I love that idea, too. I agree that it’s very motivating to see all those streaks going across the page. In fact, I created a chart for myself this summer that lets me record my progress on a bunch of different goals, all on one page. Mine looks like this:
Here is a generic version of this chart, in case you’d like to try tracking all your goals on the same page:
You can use it as a calendar and mark off each date you meet each specific goal, but I use mine more like a bar graph, so that at the end of the month I can see at a glance how many math lessons I taught, days I exercised, blog posts I wrote, loads of laundry I washed, etc.
I included everyday chores (like laundry, meal prep, and homeschooling) along with personal goals (like exercise, writing, and weight loss) so to make certain I don’t sacrifice one to achieve the other and to remind myself when progress seems slow that I actually am getting lots accomplished.
Since tomorrow marks the first day of a new month — and comes right at the beginning of a new school year — I thought today would be the perfect time to post such a chart, in case other readers would like to join us on this journey. I wish you every success in working toward your goals and establishing healthy habits!
