Hey, hey, I must say this was one excellent Challenge as I finished ahead of schedule (I was done yesterday, ooh) and it is something I am actually going to use.  So I got a new treadmill just before Christmas and was doing really well running everyday, and then Christmas came, and well, you know.  I was tracking my stats on a nice piece of coloured paper taped to my closet door, so I think this is a must better improvement:

I love it.  I just took a regular cork board and made a grid with ribbon.  All the numbers on the calendar are magazine clippings under those flat marbles.  I hot glued those to push pins so that I could move them around at the end of each month.  I glued stars to push pins too so I get a star when I exercise (any motivation counts).  I can write on the tags the distance and time I ran for each day and there is also a spot to write my record from last month so I am constantly improving.  My Seventeen magazine started putting in really cool quotes every month, so I am going to cut those out and stick them on for even more inspiration.
Close-up of push pins and quote:

I am super excited with how this turned out and I am now going to actually have to start on my New Years Resolution, seeing as I was busy crafting all of January, and know I must fill up my board (however I only have like thirteen star push pins... hmmm... need to find more beads).
Hope you love it and it gives you some inspiration.  Don't forget to vote!

That's a really great idea! I love that you can change the days with the pegs because it's a corkboard. That's really excellent.

THat's so cute!

...For real though, BUST has wayyyy better quotes than Seventeen. They have this section called "From the mouths of babes" that always makes my jaw drop, and I"m like, "I have to remember that."

Maybe it's just me, but I don't see the pictures and I think this sounds like a neat project.

Today I can see the pictures-it's beautiful. I can definitely see that being a major motivating factor!!! I need something like that right next to my elliptical!

Your ideas used in this project have generated many ideas in my mind.  I love the 'decorated' magnets and their three dimensionality.
