Fitbook Review: Fitness Journal
I have always been a list maker. For me—a single mother, the ability to coordinate daily goals, no matter what the topic, is essential to life success. Completing dutiful tasks ranging from shopping, feeding, educating, socializing, child care, weight control, body fitness, and everything else in between, is impossible without proper scheduling tools and documentation.

When I discovered the Fitbook in a health magazine, I was so excited but still a bit skeptical. Some of these types of products just don’t suit the individual. After all, many styles of journals, notebooks, calendars, and planners can also be used for fine-tuning a good health and fitness-tasking regimen but some don’t allow for enough personalization.
Once again, I am NOT disappointed! This little body diary is perfectly sized for home or travel. It is simply designed, well constructed, not overly wordy, easy to fill in, and provides visual encouragement during those times when you really don’t want to do any of this. By allowing its owner to record detailed food intake and workout information, one can chart progress and breakdowns and instantly determine the next steps to achieving the preferred objective. It is exactly what I need and what works best for me to remain in my personal optimum health zone.
It is meant to be used for a 12-week period. You fill in your goals for exercise and nutrition. Being me, I find that checking the smiley face at the end of the day is such a reward. At the end of the week, you can also set personal rewards–like, if I get all seven smilies for the week, I get to treat myself to a Jamba Juice or flowers.
I wish I could give you an accurate overview of my progress, but this last couple weeks really hit hard. Going through this break up has had such a physical impact on me. I’ve lost 12 pounds in less than 2 weeks. That is nowhere near healthy and I’m desperately trying to get back on track. I’m so bummed because a lot of that weight was muscle that I had worked really hard to build up and tone. But I know I can get it back. I’ll just need another Fitbook for the next 12 weeks.
Thumbs UP for women and men!
