Did you watch the video above about our FREE "Food and Exercise DAILY JOURNAL" (2nd)? If not, I have to tell you, of ALL the questions that folks have asked me over the years with 'getting healthy and fit' still one of the most popular questions is "what am I doing wrong because what I am doing is not working"? Uhhh huh I say and then ask "What are you doing? Like what did you eat all day yesterday and how about the day before? How about your sleep? Or how about exercise? What have you been doing?" Can you guess how most folks might answer this questions? How would you answer that question?
Yep, they or you might hee-haw around and then come to the conclusion that you can't really remember and you're not sure exactly of how much of that spaghetti you had and so on. Well folks the very first thing to figure out and answer is WHAT ARE YOU REALLY DOING. Not what you think you're doing but what you are actually doing. Until you see it written down in pen or pencil, well it is not FACT. And the writing down goes for your eating, your weight training and your cardio. I even have room at the bottom of each exercise page for you to write notes. Like was it a hard and intense work-out or maybe you just got through it as you weren't feeling it today. How about your sleep? How about your moods? Hmmm
You must track and record what you do if you intend to make progress. As human being we tend to think we eat a lot less than we do and we also like to think we work out and move a lot more than we really do. Hmmmm YES so write it down. It is like taking those first before photos. Yes it is a reality check. You might notice that you don't eat all day but after you get home at 6pm you pretty much eat till 9pm. Is this something you are aware of or is it just a habit that you fell into and no longer pay attention too? And what do you eat at that time? Quality as God made it food or whatever you can get into your mouth quickest?
Alright so this journal sets you up with Food and Exercise pages so you can track your eating and your exercise (weight training and cardio). I have also included a goals section. Yes a couple of pages for you to WRITE DOWN your goals. To use several measuring tools as a start position. Like photos, body fat measurements, tape measure measurements and monitoring any health situations you have. Yes we are looking for progress and improvement in ALL areas and again we are going to RECORD it all. So we can track it and tweak what we are doing if need be. It's really not that complicated. ALL part of creating THE PLAN.
Again if you don't know exactly what you are doing and sorta remember what you did then how can you come to an awareness with full conviction that this or that is or is not working? That is right. You can't. You can however complain and make statements that are not true but let you off the hook for being more disciplined and recording what you are truly doing. Hmmm
Is this a lot of work just to lose some weight and get healthy? I wouldn't say a lot of work but yes NEW Habits. If you plan on changing from an unhealthy lifestyle to a healthy lifestyle I can promise there will be lots of changes and it might seem like work initially. At least until it becomes your NEW HABITS. Then you will just do it without thinking. Exactly like you are living right now:) but this time with HEALTHY habits that lead you towards an active and healthy lifestyle.

Like anything worthwhile, this getting health and fit will take a COMMITTMENT or a resolve to get healthy from you. Yes a time committment. Yes a 'lots of changes committment'. Yes a situation that most likely will make you uncomfortable because the only thing that will keep you comfortable is if YOU DO NOTHING.
