make your own health and workout journal

18 Jan

What you need:

– 1 large Moleskine or a cheap knockoff (I got my knockoff at Borders)

– Post-it tabs

– pen (that won’t bleed through the pages)

– ruler or something with a straight edge

– a pair of sissor

– coloring pencils or highlighters

– glue stick

-time…..

I also printed out and used a number of templets from MyMoleskine You do have to create a user account to access the templates but it is well worth it. They have a number of fun things you can use to make your health and workout journal more effective. I used the “English Wellness Journal Template” as well as the “Horizontal Planning Templates” in my journal. I just printed, trimmed and then glued the templates into my journal. Take a peek around and see what you think is useful.

Here is the structure and “outline” of my Health and Workout Journal:

Tabs:

  • Notes
    • Body Measurements
    • Warm up/cool down ideas
    • Workout ideas
    • (extra pages and space for other stuff I might want to “note”)
  • General Health
    • Vitamins and Supplements
    • General comments on health issues concerns
  • Goals
    • Yearly Goals
      • What I hope to accomplish by next year….
    • 6 month goals
      • what I hope to accomplish in 6 months..
    • Montly goals
  • Workouts
    • Each week gets four face pages. The first and second page has a section for weekly goals, notes and Monday, Tuesday and Wed. The third and forth page are dedicated to Thurs, Fri, Sat and Sunday workouts.
  • Sports
    • Here I can record events I’ve participated in, such as 5k races, etc.

You can get really creative with this and paste pictures, inspirational notes and all that fun stuff in your journal. Really the possiblities are endless. I had a lot of fun making this workout journal and I’m really happy with how it turned out. It is exactly what I wanted because I created it.
