From our friends at Move It Monday:

This Monday, keep a record of your workouts. Tracking your fitness accomplishments will help identify useful patterns, reveal a picture of your overall performance, and help you stay on top of your progress.

Previously, we’ve covered how and why to keep a journal. We’ll now share tips on what to write down to keep you motivated and inspired.

  • Set a goal. 10,000 steps in a day? 20 minutes of non-stop cardio three times a week? Three weight-lifting sessions in a week? 30 minutes of laps every Saturday? Whatever it is, put it on the horizon. This is your goal.
  • Keep track. Track your numbers every day and be accountable. A possible entry would include: Date, exercise, time, distance, and any other miscellaneous notes – like how it made you feel or what you might need to change to bring you closer to your goals.
  • Find activities you enjoy. When you’re invested and having fun, you’re more likely to want to achieve your fitness goals. Be adaptable, not only will you work more muscles, but fitness may be less routine and more fun. Also, consider making fitness more social by inviting your friends or taking a class.

This Monday, use your personal data to see the big picture. When you see all your fitness accomplishments in one place, you’re more likely to feel a sense of completion and be motivated to achieve your fitness goals. Plus, it feels good!
