Keeping Track | My Fitness Journal

Standard

I have decided to work harder to reach my 2015 goal of a leaner me. This means that I need to keep track of my weight lifting, and what is working and what isn’t working concerning all fitness. I researched several options including running journals, print outs, etc., and I decided to just go with the simplest route.

The Moleskine journal is just the right size for the gym. I can stick it in my desk drawer at home, in the glove compartment of my car, in my FitBelt, etc. Plus, the size discourages me from writing more than is really necessary. It has truly been great for the New Rules of Lifting for Women program, because I cannot always remember which workout I am on, or how much weight I lifted the previous week. Plus, its easier to keep track of my splits for speed workouts when they are written down. With this journal, its all written down for easy reference.

Tell me, how do you keep track of your fitness? Do you?

A couple of weeks ago I ran the Running for the Bay half marathon in Apalachicola, Fl.

Would I do the race again? Definitely not, but as a result I feel really good about my Marathon training. Next Up, Turkey Trot 5k!
