You Need to Add this to Your Diet and Exercise Program to Insure Success
Many who start exercising and counting calories quickly get discouraged and quit. One fitness expert says there is way to stick to your weight loss and fitness plan, and have fun doing it.
SONOMA, Calif. Ð Weight loss is the goal of many of us, but we often find that hard workouts and self-denial at the dinner table are not enough.
The difference between those who succeed with a weight loss fitness program and those who fail is usually the motivation and desire to continue on a day to day basis. To do that we need well defined fitness goals and a way to achieve them on a daily basis.
"Using a fitness journal provides an organized plan to follow each day, with measurable goals and a plan for success. Motivation comes as you see your results and progress each day," explained fitness expert Christopher Watson.
"We need daily goals to work towards in an organized way. We need to see our own daily progress to stay motivated and to keep coming back to strive for something more," said Watson. "Goals must be measurable, and realistic. We need a specific plan for each workout, and we need some benchmark to strive for."
Creating a handwritten fitness journal takes time and knowledge that the average person may not have. Keep the journal each day also takes time, and turning the results and goals into attractive, motivating charts and graphs is beyond what most of us can accomplish.
"I had to find a way to help people overcome the challenges of keeping a fitness journal. I know how beneficial it can be, but I also saw the difficulties of setting up and keeping a journal. That is why I created www.FitnessJournal.org," said Watson. "Now it is simple to start and easy to do."
Getting started with the on-line journal is as simple as a few clicks and key strokes. Daily entries take only moments to make, and seeing your progress through graphs and charts makes it fun.
You can access your customized journal at www.FitnessJournal.org day or night from any computer in the world. It keeps complete track of your daily workouts, weight, body fat, sleeping patterns, and much more. Fitness Journal then calculates reports, statistics, and charts to help you evaluate your own information and helps you set goals for your next workout. It not only keeps track of what you eat and helps you plan great menus, it also offers some exciting recipes.
"You will start to see your journal as a sort of a reward for a job well done. Seeing your progress displayed for you on your computer is exciting, and motivates you each day. You will look forward to finishing your workout and then looking at your progress on the computer," said Watson.
Keeping a fitness journal offers a complete exercise log for people who wish to improve their fitness level, athletes who are looking to set a new personal record, and people who just want to lose a few pounds.
Using www.FitnessJournal.org is like accounting software for the body. It is designed to help you stay motivated and reach your health and fitness goals. There is no better way to gauge your own success than by keeping a daily training log.
