There are lots of ways to see results. Most often people gauge progress by the scale, but you can do measurements, take photos, do a harder workout plan. There are so many ways but how do we know if we are improving?
If you are looking for weight loss, tracking your food intake is one thing that helps a ton. Not only does this gauge how many calories you are eating each day but it also can give you a visual idea of what improvements you can make over the course of a week. Small changes build up to bigger changes. The building up of good habits is what gets you to the long term lifestyle changes.
If you are looking to get stronger, tracking your weights that you use along with how many reps you do when it comes to strength training. Noting if a workout is easy, medium and hard can show ya when it is time to increase load, add another set and things of that nature.
One other thing to track is how you feel overall, hows your sleep and energy on days you do a workout vs when you don’t…hows your stress level, when do you feel your best? If you track and monitor this, you will most likely find trends that will show you what will bring you the most success.
Start tracking and see if you start to notice some more changes.
