This is a quickie because I’m eager to get to sleep, but I just wanted to post a quick reminder to myself about all of my small accomplishments from today, because everything counts and it’s all worth celebrating, right?

– Slept 8 hours
– Woke up on time
– Ran 4 miles
– Controlled my portions at all meals
– Ate mostly (about 90%) vegan
– Practiced 20 minutes of yoga at night
– Cleaned my room before bed
– Replied to a few (though not all) lingering emails
– Caught up with several friends
– Worked from home, successfully (!)

When I list it all out like that, it looks pretty good!! I should do this more often. It’s nice to see what I’ve accomplished in one 24-hour period, and it’s important to recognize all the goals that were reached, even if they were small ones.

This feels good. Maybe I’ll do this again tomorrow.

It’s worked out super well – usually I think those lingering tasks/emails are something I think I have to tackle and spend hours doing, but breaking it up (and letting myself feel successful about it) helps! I’m totally going to start tracking the day’s accomplishments like this. Thanks for sharing!

    • I need to remind myself to do this more often. Even on the worst of days, there is always something to celebrate. And allowing yourself a “treat” (non-food related) after accomplishing a task gives you even more motivation to accomplish just a little bit more. This is a great idea!

  3. […] that I love about myself. I may make another one of these lists later, along with another list of accomplishments from the day. I found that to be a nice reminder to myself that things really are going well, even if I’m […]
