(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.
