Keep an Exercise Log to Monitor Your Progress
Written goals are more powerful than unarticulated ones. Each month write down your stats. For example: (1) completed a two-mile run in 18 minutes, or (2) bench-pressed 150 lbs x 10. Soon you will see your two-mile run is being accomplished in 17 minutes. This written record is a testament to your persistence and commitment. It is also a great encourager to keep you motivated.
