I tend to stick to anything fun. If I'm watching tv, sometimes I'll pick a word I know will occur in the show (For example, for supernatural the word is awesome). If I hear the word, I'll pause the show for a minute and do some sort of healthy exercise: jog in place, crunch, jumping jacks, or drink a glass of water if my intake is low. This helps me to stay on track.

Making life a game is what keeps me on track to accomplishing my goals. Setting up goals and then keeping track of how well you are doing can be hard sometimes in life, but if you set it up as a game and give yourself something to "win" may help keep you motivated.
Set goals with friends and family. The more people you bring into the "game" the more you will hold yourself accountable. But also make sure to set yourself winning prizes, maybe something you wouldn't normally do for yourself!! Start the " game " now and have fun :^)
I made a weightloss game board. It tracks my pounds lost and has random reward squares on it. It also has my BMI at certain wts motivational quotes food for thought and challenges plus I made my own little character to move across the board. my grand prize? A secret trip my husband is planning and a long wanted tattoo.
I used microsoft excel to make it. Just color in the cells you want to use if you want to see mine I can email it to you or I think I can post it as a pic too.
