If you are just starting a diet and want to succeed, use a fitness journal to help you along. It’s a great tool to inspire you to get started, keep you motivated and help you to stay on track.
Many times women begin a weight loss or fitness program but never write down their starting weight and size. They progress for a short time, but start to feel like they are wasting their time. Soon, they begin to lose motivation and before long they give up completely on losing weight and getting in shape.
That’s why starting and maintaining a fitness journal is vital to your success when you want to get in shape. Your fitness journal holds all of the proof of the results of your hard work.
Once you begin dieting and exercising you may begin to tire of it and feel like you aren’t seeing any results. The number on the scale may not be changing rapidly enough for you and you think you aren’t losing enough weight. But the important thing is how do you look? How do you feel? Chances are your body shape is beginning to change, your clothes start to fit better, you find that you can buy a smaller size when shopping.
The journal makes everything simple. Not only can you keep account of what you eat, drink and all of the activity that you do each day, you can record your starting point so you will have accurate records of your progress.
Reading over your daily reports of your diet and fitness activities gives you insight on what works for you and what doesn’t. You’ll be able to tailor a diet that fits your lifestyle, goals and pocketbook.
The journal helps to boost your self-esteem by providing proof of your ability to achieve something you might have thought was impossible. Losing weight is not easy. It takes a lot of hard work and determination. It requires dedication and commitment. Your journal will offer you the opportunity to admire yourself, to applaud yourself, and to say with conviction, that your hard work is paying off.
