Tracking Your Workouts

Do you keep track of when and how much you exercise? WebMD guest expert Henry S. Lodge, MD, says keeping a log of your workouts is a great way to keep you on track.

Start by writing an exercise schedule for a month. Keep track of how long and how hard you worked out. Add any details you want -- such as any pain you felt or what music you listened to. If you track your heart rate, write that down, too. Encourage your friends to track their exercise, too, so you can compare numbers.

It's OK if your record-keeping slacks off once in a while. Just don't forget to exercise!

Do you track your workouts? Does it keep you motivated to keep exercising?
