A primary part of my women’s fitness program is keeping a fitness journal. Journaling is a great tool for newbies or seasoned athletes. Anyone can use journaling to help them reach their goals. No matter what you desire in life, goal planning by writing out your dreams and plans for yourself will help to bring about your success.
Each exercise session can be recorded in your journal and you can track your achievements from one workout to the next. This will help you to know what is working for you and when you need to take the exercise to the next level to obtain satisfactory results.
Ladies who have been working out for a while may feel that a journal is no longer needed. But if you are serious about fitness, you will find that a journal can provide a running track of your journey to success. You can easily chart your progress as you advance to the next level of all of your exercises, tracking the difficulty of each one.
If you are increasing weights, a journal will help you keep an accurate record of what you lift each time. When you are building muscles through strength training you may find that you are hungrier and may consume more calories. While this may be necessary, the journal will help you keep track of how much you eat and drink versus the amount of activity that you are doing.
Your journal can also help you chart the amount of water that you drink each day. When you are involved in a strenuous workout, staying hydrated is vital. Your journal can help you count the glasses of water that you consume each day. Every part of your well being can be recorded in your journal.
Begin today writing down your weight and measurements and what you hope to change and achieve. Place your journal in a convenient place where you can consult it regularly. Make journaling a part of your day just as eating and exercising are a part of your regular routine.
Your journal can keep you focused on your goal and provide the proof that your hard work produces real results. Remember: If you believe it, you will achieve it. Happy Journaling.
