I love the Stay On Track Calendar. It gives me a monthly view that not only shows me days I've forgotten to track, but also helps me identify problems - like, if I'm eating too much, or not exercising enough on the weekends!
You can access the calendar by clicking the My Tools - Reports menu option at the top of the page. On the Reports page, scroll down to the Weight and Other Reports section, and you will find the Calendar on the left side of the page.

I really like the On track calendar. I go to the planner and list the other goals and tasks I would like to do for the day. I remove any I didn't complete from the planner leaving only those I did. This gives me an ongoing diaryy of what I have completed on my On Track Calendar
On track calendar is found in right hand column of the Start page and lists all activities you have placed on your planner.
I give myself a non-food reward everyday that I exercise or stay on track (including rest days). On my hanging calendar, I give myself one sticker for every workout, rest day, goal met... it's amazing what a filled calendar looks like filled with stickers and how it makes you feel.334
go shopping for your fave stickers, or use a big marker/crayon etc...to make a huge check mark. You want the stickers or check visible from very far away. that way, whenever you catch a glimpse of your calendar, you can see your accomplishments, which are many and amazing!
Just a quick tip to allow small indulgences without having to avoid the man in your life who likes to always take you out to dinner, or bring home your favorite fruit smoothie from the local ice creamery .
My BF has a habit of picking up fruit smoothies for us when he comes home from playing ball at the YMCA. Instead of refusing his kindness I break the calories down with my $0.69 Popsicle mold from the Dollar tree.
That medium McDonalds Strawberry Banana smoothie become 10 frozen treats!
Staying on Track while still indulging your sweet tooth
