Let me be the first to tell you that I wasn’t always as excited about digital fitness trackers as I am now. Being honest I liked to have a workout and diet journal that I could hold in my hand and look over whenever I wanted. It was nice to be able to look back at my progress in the form of books and pages, watching my little victories and successes over time. That’s why even now I always keep a logbook like this Workout Journal with me whenever I go out and get some exercise, not just because it’s nostalgic but because it helps me to not forget to properly track my meals and exercise!
My issue with keeping a personal log in something like a spiral not book or a composition book is that I usually forget to include all of my information, but the Workout Journal Workout Diary has space for me to track just about anything I can think of. It provides an area to track my meals, log in my exercises, and even summarize how my diet is going each week. It’s pretty no-nonsense and incredibly practical which is something I really like about it and at just six by nine inches it’s easy to toss in my backpack, gym bag, or even in the back of my car when I go out and I think I might have some extra time to get in some free fitness.
The book includes space to track an entire year’s work of meals and exercise so you’ll have more than enough space to watch your progress change and grow while you shed pounds. Being able to keep an entire year in one book means that, when you finally complete it, you can sit down and go over it to see how well you’ve done and how far you’ve come. I still have all of my old weight loss journals, but since they started out just notes in spiral notebooks they’re hard to keep track of and in order. I wish I had had something like this when I first started working out so I could see my weight loss progress neatly laid out.
It doesn’t matter if you’re the old fashioned type who likes to take everything down by hand or if you just prefer having a “paper copy” of your logs, this workout journal is the perfect companion for tracking and logging all of your meals and exercise.
But the one who don’t like this paper work should feel free to go on using the electronic trackers.
