How do you like to track your fitness and health goals?
When I have been using a training schedule for a specific event, say a 10K or a half-marathon, I print off a schedule from Runner's World and tick off as I complete each day's training. I stick the schedule up on my noticeboard so that it is visible and there is no ducking it.
I create my own tracking method in excel. I keep one of those pocket notepads in my shirt pocket for notes and my Glucose readings. I will be writing a hub in a month or so on my tracking system. It will be part of my series on balancing bipolar disorder with wellness.
I have used many of the free tracking systems that are online. And, combinations of them before settling on my personalized system.
I buy a yearlong calendar and put all my workouts going forward into the calendar. I'll put in goals and event dates. I then keep the calendar with me so I know exactly what I need to do each day. I have done similar things with diet. I have also used bodybuilding.com to track specifics such as weight and body fat.
Honestly, I don't track my fitness goals much. I do regular workouts at home. I eat what I want and burn calories by working out. My mirror tells me if my shape is well enough. I don't complicate things much.
