5 Weight-Loss Rules You Can and Should Break

One Minute to a Healthier You

Sometimes it's the small things you can do in your own life to enhance your health and most of them take just a few minutes.

If you're looking to stay motivated then keep track of your progress every day. Take just one minute to document your progress, be it by taking a picture of yourself or logging your miles jogged in a journal. However you do it is up to you but it should be something small that will show your gradual (or fast) progress towards your goal. Being able to see progress visually is very motivating and if you don't track it then you might not even notice that you're now running five miles a week, instead of four. Yay!

This is a great tip, Fit. I bought a cheap notebook, like 75 cents at Target, and I write down everything about my day- what I eat, how I feel, exercise. I take pictures or articles from magazines/internet and stick them on pages in the notebook. I have several completely full notebooks, and I keep them as a trophy of my progress. And if I have a "bad day" where I don't eat as I should, or whatever, I'm forced to keep myself accountable. It's such a priceless tool for me.

i always write down my kilometres on the bike :) but it is always upsetting, i do 20km a day and my bike buddy would do 50 and more, because he lives outside the city, so he bikes in...

On-line for measurements and weight I use Sparkpeople. You can update it and it will make a graph for you. Other then that I just write my workouts in my food journal.fitnessjournal.org has tons of tracking and graphing, but it costs moolah. 1 mo = $8

Does anyone know of a free goal tracker that will log things like this? I want something that will graph my progress, not merely record it, as I'm doing that in ical.
