Use A Weight & Measurement Log to Track your Fitness Progess

Day 10: Weight & Measurement Log

Weight & Measurements Log

Health is something that's always been very important in my life. As I mentioned in the story time of the reading log article, I got really into taking care of my fitness and health in High School (side note: is that around the age people start to get interested in that kind of stuff?). One of the things I liked doing was tracking my measurements with all the working out I did because I realized early on that weight fluctuates but the true way to see how your body is changing over time is by the way your clothes feel, so measurements are definitely the more important metric. Still, I think it's interesting to keep an eye on weight as well, so I made this log to keep track of all of that information in one handy place!

A Weight & Measurements Log can help you keep track of your fitness progress

How To Make It:

1. Draw horizontal lines every two line to make a total of 15 lines. Here I began 8 squares from the top of the page and ended two squares before the end of the page.

2. Draw 14 vertical lines, with the majority at 3 squares apart and a couple at 5 squares apart. You'll see why with the following image.

3. Write out the months going down and the weight and measurement metrics going across the top of the log.

Here are the ones that I wrote, each with a "+/-" to add information of how much was gained or lost in terms of inches or weight:

  • Weight
  • Neck
  • Shoulders
  • Chest
  • Waist
  • Stomach
  • Hips
  • 9" Thigh
  • 6" Thigh
  • 3" Thigh
  • Calf
  • Bicep
  • Forearm
  • +/-
  • Notes

There's also a final box at the end to summarize the total gained or lost inches as a way to get a good overview. There's also a tiny amount of room for notes, perhaps a single word describing how you felt about your progress

Ta dah! All done. I decided to make it monthly this time because I feel like that's a good amount of time between check ins. I loosely kept track weekly last year and the year before, every other week also works.

When I was a teenager, I used to keep track by writing on the backs of envelopes (thank goodness for the Bullet Journal). I think I might have those around here somewhere, perhaps stashed in a memory box.

Hope you enjoyed this little tutorial style post!
