As you navigate the road to better health and fitness, you’re sure to stumble across challenges that require strength and perseverance to overcome. Being able to physically measure your progress through the documentation of your wellness routine is an asset. It allows you to step into your power by seeing how truly remarkable you are.
Keeping track of your life can be very rewarding. You’ll be glad that you made an effort to record your daily workouts and healthy habits as you strive to reach your goals. When you finally lose those last stubborn pounds so that you don’t need to take medication for a health issue anymore, you’ll want to celebrate. Looking back at the steps you took to become more fit and healthy keeps you motivated to continue making wellness a priority in your life.
Here are five fun ways to document your fitness journey:
Through a blog or vlog. Tell your story in a way that only you know how to share it. Create a blog where you can include content that you’ve created in audio, visual, or written form. If you prefer vlogging opposed to writing, you can keep track of your progress by recording it with your phone or camera.
Through your social media accounts. Sharing your weight loss or other fitness goals, such as running a marathon or participating in a triathlon inspires others. You never know how much you’ll inspire others with your story. Your family, friends, and even strangers will find your hard work motivating. They’ll want to work on their health and fitness because they’ve seen you succeed. You can change the lives of other people for the better because of the courage to share your own journey publicly.
With the creation of a photo book. Take the pictures that you’ve taken and turn them into a beautiful book you can share with others. Keep it on your coffee table or in your bookshelf, where you can look at it often. Feel triumphant because of the changes you’ve decided to implement in your life. A photo book is a work of art that you’ll grow to appreciate more with each passing year.
By recording one minute of video each day. It won’t take you any time at all to create content. You can then choose how to use the videos you’ve recorded. You may want to keep them for yourself or stitch them together to create a short film. You can be creative in your approach of recording videos, too, by trying different ways of telling your story.
By keeping a journal that you write in. It’s one of the most old-fashioned but effective ways of keeping track of your goals, setbacks, victories, and feelings. Best of all, it’s portable and private. No one else needs to see it. You can pull a lot of good content from it, however, once you’ve reached your target weight or another fitness goal.
There are many fun and entertaining ways to document your fitness journey. Because your experience is yours alone, no one has gone about losing weight and becoming healthier quite like you have. That’s why it’s important to share your experience with others if you feel comfortable doing so. You never know who you will inspire with your words, photographs, and actions.
