Get it Together: My Fitness Journal

I am a big fan of journaling and writing things down to keep tally on emotions and food consumption. One area of your life you may have not considered starting a journal for is fitness.

If I don't keep a journal I have a hard time progressing on a daily basis in my goals, so in my own fitness journal I like to keep record of things such as:

  • Duration and intensity
  • Distance and route
  • Feelings before and after
  • Hurdles and accomplishments
  • Goals and rewards

However, if you're the type of person who needs things more laid out for you than just jotting the above things in a notebook, then think about getting a fitness diary or journal. My Fitness Journal from Daytimer ($19.95) is a great tool to track your health progress and goals as well as keep yourself motivated in your fitness endeavors. Along with giving you an already laid out plan so that you can quickly diary what you did, how you felt when you did it, etc., the book is also full of great tips and tidbits on nutrition, stretching, motivation and more. I think the journal would be a great idea for seasoned exercisers as well as newbies. Buy it directly from and start getting organized today.

I used to keep a fitness journal awhile ago. I'm usually just good at writing down my sets if I go swimming, but other than that... I seem to forget. I don't know why!
