Did you know that your success at weight management hinges on your ability to maintain a journal? Studies have shown that consistent journal entries provide a powerful structure for succeeding at weight management. Read on to get a free copy of the Australian Food and Heart Week Food and Exercise Record.
I attribute this to the power of planning and staying focused. Regular inputs in your journal make an enormous difference to your weight management outcome. Commit 5 minutes each day to making an entry and reap your rewards in 6 months to a year.
Creating a working structure is your cornerstone for staying on task. This journal provides a structure for your physical activity and eating plan. Your entries help you stick to your goals, monitor your progress, keep your actions consistent, steer you away from your sporadic vices and identify some destructive patterns that might be consistently sabotaging you. For instance, finding the link between drinking coffee after dinner and poor sleep quality and excessive tiredness the next day, could be a powerful pattern that is zapping you of your energy to stay focused on self-care. If this regularly undermines your exercise regime and food choices, you might want to sit up and take notice and make some changes. Do not underestimate the power of small changes in making big differences. In this instance, cutting out the coffee after dinner could change a whole series of events for the next 24 hours. Picture these events recurring for a whole year, how could that not cost you dearly in terms of effectiveness and generating results? But before you can tweek your lifestyle in this manner, you must first make regular entries and then identify the problem areas before you can make the necessary changes. You cannot change what you do not know. As you make these entries, you will find your self progressing in your stamina and food choices. Success begets succeess.
