In the past, I’ve written about how keeping a training log can be very helpful toward measuring your progress.
Well, don’t just take it from me, check out this post from Nancy Howard at http://www.sparkpeople.com/ to learn more about the value of keeping your fitness activities on track -- http://tinyurl.com/lag328.
In addition to “logging the miles”, so to speak, I’ve also started logging what I eat each day. This really helps keep you accountable for what you consume. Again, I will never claim to be a nutrition expert, but most of us are educated enough to know what’s good and what’s bad, so make sure you’re keeping a log that measures whether you’re consuming “more good than bad”!
