New Year....New Strategies

For the last two days, I have been looking for ways to switch up my weight loss strategies.  I spent a lot of time on Pinterest, and grabbed a few ideas that I think will work for me.

So I got in the car and drove to Michael's to get what I needed.

First up is the motivational weight loss jars.

I've actually wanted to do this for awhile.  I'm very visual, so seeing the stones move from one jar to the other will be very motivating for me.  What will also be extremely motivating is NOT wanting to have to put any of the stones back in the pounds to lose jar!  That would really suck!

Next up is the "smash journal".

I saw quite a few of these on Pinterest.
  What really appealed to me is the mixture of journal and scrapbook.   I'm planning to just stuff it full of ideas, clippings, pictures and anything that motivates me.  If you need ideas, just search for
 "Weight Loss Smash Journal" on Pinterest and you will see tons of cute ideas.
Here are my first few pages. 

And last, but not least is a private journal.  
My Smash journal will just lay around the house, but there are some thoughts and feelings about my weight loss that I would like to keep to myself.
So I purchased a Journal app for my iPhone.  It was only $1.99 and let's you add pictures.  Most importantly to me, I can sync it between my iPhone and my Google Drive.

So there you have it.
I'm really excited about all of these new little strategies!

What new strategies are you going to try to spice up your weight loss program?
