Discipline Managed!

I've been trying out different diets and workouts for the past few years already, but my results has always been minimal or none at all. So I just kept on gaining and gaining pounds, and a few decimals away from being obese. Therefore, I came to the conclusion that it wasn't the diets nor the workouts that were faulty; it was me all along. I kept on giving into temptations and finding ways not to work out. I am fat because of my own choices (how philosophical is that?). And so, I decided I'll work on my discipline first, and that led me to this: my own discipline card, and I gladly share them with you!
It's pretty simple to use actually:
  • First, print the card. It's  3in x 4in, so any kind of paper will do. I used a white cardboard paper for mine.
  • Write on the blank the habit you want to keep on doing or a bad habit that you promised not to do.
  • For each day of the month, encircle, highlight, or cross out the days in which you were able to do or not to do the habit.
  • See your progress!
That is pretty much it. Simple, right? As a bonus, I also chose two inspirational quotes that can help you keep your discipline, which you can print at the back of your cards:
My card currently says "This month, I solemnly swear not to eat rice.", and so far. I've gone five days without rice already. I'm feeling "lighter" than the usual although there are no drastic changes yet, but I can't wait to finish my first month! I greatly believe that small changes can make drastic changes, so start your small changes now! :)
