Thanks for the insight everyone…
So far I just bought a old school composition notebook and wrote my workout in that.
The diet one will be a work in progress… I can’t decide if I should go with something I can keep in my pocket (small) or go with something larger that I just keep in my car.
In the beginning I will probable no worry about calories to much when it comes to the journal, more getting quality food in me. I figure the quality food is more important to start with.
Thanks, keep a any advice coming!
That composition book should be perfect for your training. I’ve always preferred journals about that size for that purpose.
As for the food log, keeping it with you is a very good idea when you’re starting out. I used to do the same and you’ll quickly realize it’s a pain in the ass to constantly pull that bitch out to jot down the same old shit. But it’s extremely important to track your nutrients, so don’t give up. You’ll be very glad.
Agree with Bango, the log book is crucial. It is also a test of willpower. Have to write down what you eat, have to beat last week’s squat, have to, have to. It’s a pain in the ass! But if you keep it up, you can guarantee that you will get the body you really want. Like Chuck Norris, the log book does not sleep, it waits.
Fuckin Chuck Norris…
