1. It's satisfying.
First reason to track your workouts - because it feels so good to say: I DID THIS! Right? I know most people (including myself) love checking something off of a To Do List. It's gratifying to not only complete something but to have some way to show that you did it.
2. It helps you stay on track.
Studies have shown that when you track your workouts you are more aware of how often and how much you're exercising. It's harder to fall off the exercise wagon if you are keeping track of your workouts.
3. You'll exercise more!
Not only will tracking your workouts help you stay on track BUT it will also encourage you to exercise more! You'll want that good feeling of satisfaction that you get from entering your workout and realizing you did a good job, which will inspire you to workout again and again.
4. Provides you with a record.
Tracking your workouts gives you the ability to look back and see how much you've accomplished and how far you've come. It's hard to tell how much you've progressed and transformed if there's no record of it. So tracking isn't just inspiring and motivating, it's also smart and can help you continue to improve and become stronger and healthier.
5. You'll be more mindful of what you eat.
Finally, you'll be more mindful of what you're eating and how you're fueling your body when you track your workouts. Why? Because you won't want to waste all of that effort on an entire pint of ice cream later that night. Instead, you'll be inspired to make better decisions not just regarding your fitness, but also regarding your diet. So maybe instead of ice cream after a hard workout, you'll enjoy a cup of strawberries.
