I’ve been seeing a lot of activity about fitness lately. This got me thinking about a fitness planner and the benefits of using one. I started researching and brain storming to figure out what I would use a fitness planner for.
Why use a Fitness Planner?
- Meals – I can plan and record the meals and know exactly what I’m putting into my body.
- Water – We all know water is the key to most everything healthy (skin, body, internal organs)
- Weight – Keeping track of weight. Not always a fun thing to see unless the scale is going down.
- Measurements – Inches do matter and it’s nice to see the numbers go down on the tape measure too.
- Steps – Walking is a great form of exercise. With all the devices to keep track of how many steps you take in a day, it’s not hard to do.
- Workouts – This can be done in many forms whether it’s a Zumba class or physical weights at the gym.
- Supplements – Track your vitamins or supplements that you take to help with your health.
- Calories/Points – Keep track of calories for the day or points used for Weight Watchers.
- Menstrual Cycle – Ladies know how important this can be to keep track of.
- Challenges – Record that weekly or 30 day challenge to keep you on track.
- Goals – Always have a plan for success and where you want to be.
- Rewards – List the rewards you will give yourself after you meet a certain challenge or goal. Seeing it as a reminder helps with the motivation.
- Selfies – Put pictures of your progress in your planner to see the results.
- Reflections – Journal what you are feeling even if it’s a rant of frustration.
- Accountability – It will make you accountable.
- Habits – It will create healthy habits
- Record – It allows you to see your progress and track how far you have come.
Most fitness planners that I have found do not include everything I want to have in a fitness planner. Me being me, I had to create a Fitness Planner. I love that I can type in the fillable form prior to printing and then resize it as an insert to my Classic Happy Planner.
A fitness planner makes sense to me. Anyone can use it and it can be used anytime to track pretty much anything health related.
As the saying goes, “why put off for tomorrow what you can do today, just do it!”
