How A Fitness Journal Can Help You Stick To Your Diet

May 2

There are three major components to the Fitness4Her Diet and Exercise Program. Diet, everything you eat; the Exercise, including strength training and cardio exercises; and the Journal to record your results. Each of these parts is equally important for the success of the whole fitness plan.

So how does can your fitness journal help you to stick to your diet? Because when you write down everything that you eat and drink, you become accountable for the food that you consume. Writing it down brings you face to face with how much and what types of food you are eating on a regular basis.

It’s important to your overall health to get a healthy balance of vitamins and nutrients each and every day. However, if you are watching your weight, you need to be concerned with the portion size of your meals, too. This includes snacks as well as breakfast, lunch and dinner.

You are the one in control of your life. Everything that you eat, results from a decision that you have made. It is up to you to make the necessary changes that you want to live with and that will help you live better.

It has been proven time and again, that people who keep a journal of everything they eat and drink and record all of their physical activity have a far greater chance at a successful fitness program than those who do not.

Hopefully, I’ve convinced you about the health benefits that a balanced diet of nutrient-rich food and regular exercise offer. Fitness4Her is a diet, exercise and journal program that was developed exclusively for women.

I invite you to participate in my diet and exercise plan and keep a journal of your results for at least 90 days. Write down your goals each week, and use that as a guide to keep you focused. Record everything you eat and drink and all of your activities and monitor how well these practices are working for you. If you keep track daily, and reexamine your results each week, you’ll be able to determine what works for you and what doesn’t.

Maintaining your fitness journal really is the key to success. Because I care about you, I hope your journal becomes a true tale of wellness. Happy Journaling.

  1. Hey Karen, such a great article and you touch on such an important issue here!So many people suffer from what is commonly referred to as “the eye mouth gap” and by actually keeping a personal journal it nips that problem right in bud so so to speak!
