I’ll admit, 2020 has been a challenge. While I’ve gotten comfortable working from home, my fitness and eating routing have been inconsistent. Enter Google Sheets!
From October 26 until Thanksgiving, I used a simple Google Sheet to track some healthy habits and changes. Notable entries to my spreadsheet included drinking 1 gallon of water, no fast food, fast 13+ hours, weighing in, drinking a green drink and wearing my smartwatch.
Here’s where the magic started. Everyday I would make an “X” in each row as I completed a task/habit. Progress came slowly, but as the days passed and more Xs filled the sheet, I built momentum. While my compliance wasn’t perfect, I made sure to put and X or – accurately every single day.
The small win created by entering an X and creating streaks helped me drink that last glass of water or beat hunger to complete a fast.

By making these small changes over the course of a month, I was able to lose 10lbs and feel overall healthier.
In an effort to maintain this momentum, I created a similar spreadsheet to track the days between Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Here’s my Thanksgiving to Christmas Sheet:

Yes, I made some changes to the habits for this month. My hope is that I will lose another 10 lbs and set myself up an awesome 2021!
