In the interest of full disclosure and to be completely authentic with you….  Oh how I have resisted this one?! I find it tedious and frankly a little boring to do.

I’ve started and stopped tracking at least a dozen times over my years of training, but if you want to progress you need to know where you’re starting from…. even if you’ve been at it awhile. So a dose of my own advice and medicine is in order.

Tracking your lifestyle includes monitoring your activity as well as rest, food, liquids, supplements and more.

I’ll be posting this daily here on the blog to give you an idea of what’s involved and to keep myself accountable. We all need a way to make things stick so this blog will be my way. It’s a bold thing to do (for me), but sometimes we need to take bold action to move forward – and I want to keep moving forward.

Update!

To differentiate the daily tracking activities from the other posts and to make it simpler for people to find posts and tracking I’ve set up a Daily Tracking Page for you to look at. You can find that by clicking here.

Here are some of the things I’ll be keeping track of:
