Boost Your Exercise Motivation!
Just create a simple chart with the days of the week; you can even use a ready-made calendar. Then, as you're following your Fitness Planner, write down in the journal the fitness routine or exercises that you do each day as you complete them. That's all there is to it, but you'll gain plenty of benefits! You will be able to:
- Get a motivational boost! It feels terrific to be able to write down the exercises you completed each day, and it's truly motivating when you look back over a week and see how active you were. All those exercise sessions add up fast!
- Track your progress. Your fitness journal will record how far you've walked or biked, how many minutes or hours you've exercised, and how often you do it. It's hard to remember it all without writing it down!
- Pinpoint trouble spots.You can look at your weekly or monthly journal and evaluate it with an objective eye. Suppose you notice that you are great about working out in the beginning of the week but start to slack off from Wednesday on — you'll know that you need to focus on increasing your activity toward the end of the week.
