I am a firm believer that tracking progress is the key to success in fitness, weight loss, and well, most goals in life. If you don’t know where you’re starting, how do you know where you’re going and if you’re making progress.
How is this possible? I know I say this all the time and it’s a guiding instruction in the FSS Fitness Plan, but I feel the need to remind myself too: TRACK PROGRESS. If you have trouble plugging in information each day, or staying accountable, it is worth trying ‘technology.’ But, if you’re like me, you need it to be seamless and hassle free, so I recommend the Fitbit Aria, which is a ‘smart WiFi scale.’ Not only does it measure your weight and body fat percentage, but when connected with your Fitbit, it tracks your daily activity and gives you notifications (even badges) as you hit different milestones. Your personal statistics automatically plug into your tracker when you step on the scale each day, so there is no time spent ‘inputting’ and no room for error. By knowing where you’re at in real time, you simply can’t fall off the wagon without knowing you are sliding down.
So, here’s my challenge and I want you to join me: Give yourself a head start by tracking where you are now and keeping ‘up to date’ on yourself. (Plus I have created the perfect workout series on youtube to keep you active no matter how busy you are.) Whatever your thoughts may be, or whether you’re hesitant– I am serious about TRACKING your progress. People complain about finding motivation; I’m telling you if you track your progress, whether it’s via DIY measurements, performance goals or a tracking device, I guarantee you will reach wherever you are trying to go, and get there much more efficiently!
