LOG YOUR WAY TO FITNESS SUCCESS

Carol Whitaker

LOG YOUR WAY TO ACHIEVING FITNESS SUCCESS!

Keeping a fitness log of your success is highly motivating.  Keeping a special fitness journal is a fantastic tool to aid you in reaching your goals.  Keep a log of your workout routines and meals daily.



 You wouldn't try to drive to California from New York without a map, setting and planning your fitness goals is a road map to achieving great success.  When logging your meals write down your emotions you felt that day.  Pay attention to when you have cravings; was it when you were stressed or tired? Keeping track of your emotions will help you pinpoint what triggers cravings and knowing is half the battle.  When you know what causes you to want to overeat you can create a solution to resolve the emotional issue before it happens again.





Also write positive affirmations about how amazing you are at the top of each page. Writing positive affirmations will shift your subconscious mind to believing that what you write is real now, it will literally shift your way of thinking to do what is needed to accomplish that which you see and believe to be true. You'll soon find that you'll begin to crave healthier foods rather than junk food.

Your body is very smart and gives you exactly what you think and feel about most.  So have positive loving feelings to create the life of your dreams.

Post photos of your "thin" self or someone that inspires you.  Look at the photos everyday and visualize it as though the physique is yours now.  Then take photos of yourself each week and post them in your workout log so that you can see your progress along the way.  Photos speak much louder than words. 

I took the photos above yesterday, it's highly rewarding to see the results of my hard work and dedication to living a my LivFit Lifestyle.  We see ourselves differently in photos than we do when we look in the mirror. By keeping a log of your photos it will help keep you on track with your fitness goals.

Believe in your success!  YOU can achieve that which your heart desire taking one step at a time.  Do not overwhelm yourself with lofty goals that seem truly achievable before you even get started, by doing so you will only set yourself up for failure.  Set short term goals that you know you can keep and achieve. Then set a game plan to achieve your long term goals and follow through.

Logging your way to success is a sure fire way to accomplish your goals, and it is a great way to keep track of what did and did not work for you.  After a few months of keeping a log you will soon find that living a fit lifestyle will becomes easier and easier... it will indeed be a way of life!

Have fun training and enjoy the journey along the way.... remember, you can do it!!!
