Wellness in March – Exercise, and Log it!

Earlier this month, I wrote a blog about making small changes to bring wellness into your life

 

One of those small changes is exercise. Whether you are just starting, or upping the ante on your current exercise regiment, we recommend that you keep track of those aerobic and muscle- and bone-strengthening activities. Keeping a diary will help you track what in your regiment works well for you and why. Here are some items to note when doing your tracking:

  • WEIGHT - Record your end-of-week weight.

  • ACTIVITY- List the physical activities you participated in.

  • DURATION - Record the time you spend engaged in those activities (in minutes).

  • INTENSITY - Assess how hard you worked (light, moderate or vigorous?).

  • EFFECTS - Reflect on how you felt afterward (tired, energized or sore?).

  • TOTAL DURATION - Record the total time you spent engaged in physical activity this week (in minutes).

  • ROADBLOCKS - List any obstacles you encountered this week.

  • PROGRESS - Evaluate how close you are to achieving your goals.

You can keep a notebook of your this information, or download the entegra Challenge to Change Tracking Worksheet. At the end of the week, take time to review your routine, congratulate yourself on your achievements and plan for the week ahead.
