One of the number one reasons that people don’t get into shape and don’t focus on nutrition is because they look at the big picture. Instead of focusing on getting fit in smaller increments, they focus on goals that are too broad and too far into the future.
For example, instead of focusing on the goal of fitness for a few weeks, they make goals like ‘get fit this year’ – and it’s the same with nutrition. When you focus on goals that are too broad, they can seem too far out of reach.
But by focusing on goals broken down into smaller increments, you’ll reach those goals and it will motivate you to achieve more successes. One of best ways to reach any goal is by making it concrete – writing it down where you can see tangible evidence of it.
Seeing tangible evidence of a goal prods us into action, unlike an intangible, vague goal does. So if you say that you want to get fit and focus on nutrition by keeping a record of how you do for a year, the odds are high that you will not stick to it because the time frame is set too long.
However, if you break it down into a matter of weeks (like is done in the Fitbook Fitness and Nutrition Journal), you’ll be able to see changes within a few weeks and each time you see those changes, it will motivate you to keep striving for your goal.
With this journal, you can put your goals in writing and you only focus on 12 weeks at a time – which makes it a short-term goal. Psychologically, people are more drawn to short term written goals because of the perk of seeing results faster. You can break down your goal into weeks and see the evidence in writing even before you see physical changes.
Tracking your progress will be easy because you’ll be able to see when you worked out, what you ate – and by having a record, you’ll know where your weak spots are and how to maximize your strengths.
You can keep a record of your daily accomplishments, and at only 5.5 inches, the journal is small enough to take along wherever you go. There’s even a handy storage spot in the journal so that you can keep membership cards or money.
It comes with a pen so that you’ll always be ready to record your progress and notes. Write down your goals in the journal and watch how setting goals and obtaining them helps you to make the changes you’ve been wanting to make.
