(HealthDay News) -- Logging your exercise habits helps you stay committed and address any problems.
The American Diabetes Association recommends:
Log an entry in a diary each time you work out.
Take note of times that you didn't exercise, and times when you could have exercised more.
Look for patterns, such as a day of the week that's most difficult for you to exercise.
Take note of activities or habits that you enjoy and motivate you to exercise more.
