Thanks to a great recommendation from our Kung Fu Sifu, I have started a workout journal for the year of 2016. It is a great idea since it keeps you accountable. The idea is that you write what you want to do during your workout, then you go back and write what you did/didn't do. This way you can keep track of your improvements/fall backs. And hopefully, over time, you will see yourself improving in your exercises. i.e. maybe you start at 5 push ups. But by the end of 2016 you get up to 20. And you don't struggle as much.
The most important thing to keep in mind is that we all have set backs, so if you have an off week or two, it isn't the end of the world. I am excited to see where 2016 brings me, exercise-wise. Hoping to see some awesome work-outs this year with improvement across the board. But even if I get worse at something, that's ok too.
