Write it Down!

I'm a very organized person. And I mean very. 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 to improve.

It makes it super easy to go back and see which exercises I had trouble with and which ones I need to make more challenging.

Not only does keeping a fitness journal help me to improve but it also makes my time spent at the gym a lot 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 little confidence booster.

I just flip through my notes and see all sorts of progress! Whether it be a heavier weight or more reps - 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 stay 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.

Be creative! You don't have to write everything down in a notebook (a Hello Kitty notebook at that) like me - you can use your phone or log it on the computer. Whatever you do be healthy and get active! Writing things down just helps make it easier.
