Believe it or not, studies have shown that if you keep an exercise journal daily, this by itself will give you motivation to get out the front door. Studies have also shown that as you record your obstacles, challenges, dead zones as well as your successes, you will exercise at a more consistent pace than the person who does not do this.
As I have alluded to before, the toughest step to taken any exercise program is the first step. Any advantage that we can get on our side to get us exercising and keep us exercising, we should take and embrace it enthusiastically.
Since diabetes responds so well to exercise, this is a great tip.
So go buy a small notebook that you can write in and start today. If you have an iphone, droid etc that you can keep a journal on, by all means do that! The manner of journaling does not matter… that you do it is the only thing that does matter.
