I’m a veryÂ organizedÂ person. And I meanÂ very.Â So it only makes sense that I’d have a fitness journal.
Writing my workouts down and keeping a record of how much weight I used helps me to know how and where I need toÂ improve.
It makes it superÂ easyÂ to go back and see which exercises I had trouble with and which ones I need to make moreÂ challenging.
Not only does keeping a fitness journal help me to improve but it also makes my time spent at the gym a lotÂ quicker.
All I have to do is look at my workout for the day and I know what exercises to do instead of relying on my less than perfect memory.
My fitness journal is like my littleÂ confidence booster.
I just flip through my notes and see all sorts of progress! Whether it be a heavier weight or more reps -Â I’m always making small improvements.
Also, I like to have a page with each day’s summary.
Writing down whether or not I stayed within my caloric intake for the day helps me to stayÂ accountable.
Knowing I’ll have to write something down in my mess-up section helps me to rethink that cookie or soda.
I highly recommend keeping a log of some sort to help keep track of your health and fitness goals.
BeÂ creative! You don’t have to write everything down in a notebook (aÂ Hello KittyÂ notebook at that) like me – you can use your phone or log it on the computer. Whatever you do beÂ healthyÂ and getactive! Writing things down just helps make it easier.
