If you're serious about getting in shape and eating right, documenting your plan of action and your daily progress is a great way to meet your goals. I found an easy way to keep track of all your stats — the fitbook ($20). It's 12-week fitness journal and food diary that's 5.5 square inches, so it's small enough to tuck in your purse or gym bag. It's made of 100 percent recycled paper, and comes with a little pen to jot down your info. It has neat little charts so you can see how much you've worked out, what you've eaten, your weekly weight, and your body fat percentage.
A fit and healthy lifestyle doesn't come easy to many people. It takes discipline and a lot of planning, so using a journal like this one is a great way to set yourself up for success. Plus research shows that those who write down their goals are 75 percent more likely to achieve them.

If your goals will take more than 12 weeks to accomplish, or you have some friends who want to get on the fitbook boat, you can purchase a set of four for $75. Since we're all pinching pennies, if you don't want to splurge on a fitbook then you can download my fitness and food journals for free.
