Faithfully I write in my journal each day.
Recording what I eat and how long I play.
Planning my goals, then tracking my success,
This daily devotion helps reduce my stress.
It has been proven time and again, that people who keep a journal of everything they eat and drink and the amount of exercise that they do have a much greater chance of success than those who do not.
Faithfully maintaining your daily journal will demonstrate commitment to your fitness program and keep you motivated to succeed. This is the best way to determine what foods and exercises work best for you.
Throughout the day, write down everything that you eat and drink and what physical activity you participate in. By doing this, you are taking responsibility for the food that you put in your body. You can track the calories, fat and carbohydrates that you consume for a full nutritional evaluation. The journal also helps to track your fitness goals and progress. It will be fun to look back and see all that you have accomplished.
By keeping a journal for 90 days and monitoring your exercise and weight, you can get a good idea of how the Fitness4Her program is working for you.
It is a well-known fact that if you wish to form a new habit or change an old one, you must engage in the desired behavior for at least 30 consecutive days. The truth is the first 30 days are the hardest! If you get through the first 30, the next 30 won’t seem nearly as difficult. And the 30 days following will be even easier!
Fitness4Her encourages keeping a journal for at least the first 90 days of your fitness plan. As a personal trainer for women, I’ve found that those who followed my program and kept a journal for at least 90 days were more successful than those who didn’t.
Writing your goals on paper will transform them from a thought into something you can really work with.
For best results, start each week by writing down your goals. Now you have set the stage for your brain to react. Since the brain is wired to achieve, it will want to master the goals that you write down.
When you begin the Fitness4Her program, you will have the opportunity to write down your fitness goals. You can record your current weight, dress size and measurements. Then, fill in your goals for your desired size and measurements.
Anytime you set goals, you have to think about what you really want and how you will achieve it.
Your mind is the main catalyst for bringing about change in your life. Your brain is so powerful that it can alter your mental and physical health. Your own mind can work for you or it can work against you. It does not differentiate between good and bad, it just reacts to the stimuli. By controlling what you think about most of the time, you can bring about positive change in your life.
“Think about your life, your fitness goals and achievements…”
What changes would you like to see in your body?
How will you bring these goals to reality? This act of journaling, writing down your goals and accomplishments, will train your brain to Think to Shrink. Your brain will become so committed to bringing about your success that you will wonder why it took you so long to get started.
