The success journal is set up to help you (1) establish goals (2) follow the eating & fitness routines (3) provide inspiration during the 12 week challenge and (4) hopefully transform your life after completing a 12 week program.
Having finished a 12 week program in 2001 and, having failed to finish 3 prior programs, I can say that this journal should help people start and complete a program. The journal would probably be of little value to those that haven't read the book but, if you are planning to buy the book and follow the plan you should pick up a copy of this Journal.
As part of the Journal you are forced to record your planned vs. actual results for fitness, food and daily goals each and EVERY day. This thing truly forces the program upon you, which is a good thing for many who feel they might lack the discipline to complete such a program. The book truly enables people to measure their results on a daily basis and track their progress throughout the entire program.
Body for Life, like any other fitness/health plan, will only allow you to get results based on your effort. If you gorge yourself with food or don't exercise like he says, don't expect to get the kind of results that people in his book have gotten.
Body For Life, while it is somewhat a promotional vehicle for EAS Myoplex, is a very sound book on nutrition and exercise. Most importantly, Mr. Phillips tries to get people to look within themselves and try to find out what they want out of a fitness program and goals in life.Read more ›
My only complaint about the whole BFL program is the constant pressure by the journal and book to recruit your friends in to it. It has a "daily goal" of encouraging your friends to do BFL, or encouraging them while they're on it. I guess it's a marketing ploy to get more people to buy the books and journals. I do recommend the program to my friends, but I don't fill out that part of the journal every day. There are also some other parts of the journal that are tedious. I concentrate on filling out the parts dealing with exercise and food/water - and leave the other parts blank.
By actively filling out all the sections of the journal, you keep the changes you're experiencing in the forefront. It's easy to just focus on the workouts, but the mental and nutrition parts of this program are equally if not more important.
I've completed two official challenges and 3 unofficial ones, and though I've gotten great results so far, I feel using this Success Journal will enable me to surpass my previous Success and finally achieve my goals.
I cannot recommend this Journal highly enough. I really like the amount of detail, the success stories included throughout the book, and Bill's comments for each day. It's highly motivating, inspiring, and a terrific addition to a Body For Life challenge.
