Go out and buy a new journal or notebook and pencil. When I started this trick, I just used old notebooks that I had laying around. Between college and my years as a teacher, I had collected many partially used notebooks, what better way to use them. So, if you have any old notebooks lying around, use those.
This is the number one secret that has seen me through my successful weight loss of 120 + pounds. Not only will you see results, but you will see results in leaps and bounds.
3…Food. Write down the time, where, what, how much, and how many calories.
4…Exercise. Whether you get 5 minutes or 120, write it down. If all you have time for is 10 push-ups, that’s awesome! Write it down. Again write down what time, where, and what.
5…Review & Reflect once a week. Make sure you give yourself 15-30 minutes every week to look over your journal entries. This is the time when you can determine whether certain things worked for you or if things need to be tweaked. By reflecting once a week you also stay focused and keep your goals updated.
