Having four kids in four different schools can cause our mornings to be a little hectic and rushed. When running out the door to get everyone off to their right place, then coming home to head straight for the office, I can run out of time to prepare myself a healthy breakfast or take time for daily exercise. I am always looking for ways to simplify my schedule while meeting my goals. Things like remembering to grab a quick, healthy breakfast on my way out the door in the mornings and track daily fitness goals to gauge my progress are my priorities for the back to school season.
How to Track Daily Fitness Goals
Instead of just writing down in my planner when I go for a bike ride or jog, I decided to create my own fitness planner stickers. This way the stickers are right in my face as a reminder to take the time to exercise. Even if you do not have a goal of losing weight, it is important to exercise to maintain optimal health.
I work out of a home office all day, sitting at a computer. I often catch myself snacking throughout the day more than taking time to prepare a full meal. Especially since everyone else in the family is gone to school and work all day. Cooking a full lunch for one is just not in my schedule.
I created fitness tracking planner stickers by using a sheet of address labels. You can print your own fitness tracker stickers using the Avery 5167 labels. They are the perfect size to go in The Happy Planner or Erin Condren. The labels are 1/2″ x 1 3/4″ in size. If you have a full sheet of sticker paper you can cut your own rectangle stickers if you prefer.

You can add your daily fitness stickers to your month view or weekly view. I prefer to add them to my weekly view on each day that I am able to get in a workout. If you plan ahead, you can add the stickers to the days you have a goal of working out as a reminder.
Whether your choice of fitness routine is running, biking or swimming – you can easily track how many miles or laps you completed and if you reached your goal for the day.
At the end of the month you can calculate your progress and see where you can make improvements. Has your distance changed? Are there certain days you are able to workout more often each week than others?
