Fitness Journal

My gym is the local New York Sports Club. I’ve been paying the monthly fee for almost a year now, but I have not been able to stick to a routine.

I understand starting is really difficult, but once you break the 3 months barrier, things should smooth down a little. I just never went to the gym during a three month period! Time to change.

My goal is to go to the gym 3 times a week – Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. I also want to be able to go to walk in the park or by the river during the weekends.

I am not sure how I will keep track of my progress. In the beginning I will simply list here the day/time I went to the gym and what I did. I will try to come up with a better way of tracking whatever I am doing.

Fitness: Getting Into Shape

Losing weight and becoming physically more fit should be one of my major short-term goals. I am overweight and absolutely out of shape – I can’t even bend! Pretty pathetic.

The only action I’ve taken so far was to join Weight Watchers, which has been very helpful. I see Weight Watchers as a lifestyle change, not a diet. It would work much better had I a better resolve in sticking to the plan.

But that’s going to change. Effective July 14th 2008 I will maintain my daily food ingestion within the points given to me by the Weight Watchers program. I know I will lose weight, as I’ve had already in the beginning.

The second step is to create a schedule to go to the gym. I need to keep a schedule and journal, so I can keep track of my progress.

I will keep both items on separate entries, so it is going to be easier to track each one separately.

Wish me luck! I just need to eat the two pints of ice cream and finish the pizza I have in the fridge!
