Those of you who read The Skinny know that I've been struggling with motivation to be extra healthy lately. I've just been feeling kind of...blah. For the past couple of weeks I've made some exercise and eating goals... but I tend to forget about those goals during the week. So... I decided to make myself a little goals chart.
It's versatile, reusable, and I feel so fulfilled when I get to put a little check in the box for completing my goals!
Oh, and I figured while I was at it I might as well make a reusable to To Do list too. I am always making to do lists, so it'll be great to keep one handy that I can use over and over and over again.
Want to make your own?
Here's what you'll need:
-a glue stick
-lamination (can be done with a home kit or at a store with a lamination machine)
-an overhead pen
I knew I wanted my goals chart to be pretty versatile since my goals and focus change all the time, so I made mine pretty simple.
*Note: When gluing down your pieces, make sure to adhere pieces well enough that they won't move around when laminated, but don't put too much glue on or else it will seep out from under your paper when it goes through the lamination machine.
The To Do list was even simpler!
Once my goals chart and to do list were ready, I took them to the copy center on campus where my husband goes to school and had them laminated with hard laminate. I think soft laminate would work okay, but I don't like it. I personally recommend hard lamination. It will stay looking nice and crisp a lot longer. And it will make all your dreams come true.
That's it! Now they're ready to use!
Important Note: DO NOT use dry erase markers on your laminate. They are mean and nasty and they don't come off nicely.
Idea tip: This method for making goal charts and to do lists would also be great for:
-writing practice for young children
-smaller version would be a great reusable shopping list!
So many possibilities! Let me know if you make one!
