Good morning and Happy Fit Friday!
Danny and I went to the gym last night and worked on shoulders. I brought my new FitBook that I have been using all week!
Lately, I have been doing a really good job at eating healthy and recording my food. I used to do really good at recording my workouts too. I even have an exercise tab above where I recorded my workouts for a long time, but then I just stopped for some reason.
Since my surgery, I haven’t been able to do much cardio so I have really been focusing on the weight lifting. The FitBook is perfect to help me write down my workouts and stay on track.
The FitBook is a 12-week fitness and nutrition book designed to help you meet your health and fitness goals.
The first few pages of the book have sample pages to show you how to fill it out.
It starts with a 12-week goal and has space for you to record your weight, body fat, goals, motivation, etc.
It has some more sample pages showing you how to fill out the weekly page goals and how to record your workouts and food each day.
I love the food log guide page. It tells you how many recommended servings of each food group and nutrients you need per day and each daily page has a nutrition tracker so you can check off how many servings you ate during the day.
I have been using My Fitness Pal to record what I eat lately but sometimes it takes a while to enter into my phone. With the FitBook, I can just jot down what I ate really quick and use it as reference to enter it into my phone later.
The book has a weekly page where you can record your plan for the week, your stats, and goals.
Then it has a daily page where you can record your exact workout and food.
I like writing down the workout I did and the weights so I can work on lifting more weight. Before, I would just lift the weight but never remember exactly how much I lifted.
Finally, it has a weekly wrap-up page where you can reflect back on your week and record any good and not-so-good things that happened to try and change those for the following week.
I’ve only had the FitBook for a week, but it has really helped me stay on track and I love it! I have even lost a pound or two this week!
It’s the perfect size to throw in my gym bag and carry around the gym with me. It comes with a little pen but I prefer using a pencil.
The Get Fit Book website has tons of products to help you reach your fitness and nutrition goals. Besides the regular FitBook, they also have a FitBook for pregnant women and a FitBook for kids.
If you’re more into technology, they have a FitBook app available on Google Play and the iTunes App Store. They also offer apparel, water bottles, portion plates, and food scales.
The FitBook website also has free recipes, workouts, and tips on how to meet your goals.
Studies have shown that more people reach their goals when they write them down and keep track of them. I have always struggled with my weight and I didn’t start losing any weight until I actually started writing down what I ate (you can read more about my weight loss journey here.)
I am a firm believer that tools like the FitBook can help you achieve your goals. Of course, you need to put in the time and effort and do the work, but by writing it down, you can make it a reality!
