Notably, the dietary section now includes boxes for breakfast-snack-lunch-snack-dinner-snack. This fits nicely for people who are following a diet that requires them to eat 5-6 small meals per day instead of the old standard of 3 meals. To make room for this, the "Other Exercise" section has been shrunk a bit. Instead of having big check boxes for various activities such as gardening and yoga (which was a waste of space to people who didn't use them), there are now 5 blank lines where you can write in your own activities, whatever they may be.
The cardio workout section has also been reformatted. The cross-country skier and jump rope have been removed, but there are three blank lines where people could add those back if they want.
Anyway, I would say that this was already an excellent product, and it is nice to know that it improves with time. Here are some things I like as compared to other workout journals I looked at.
- I like that it is both a workout and food diary AND gives plenty of space for both. It is important to pay attention to both in order to get and stay fit.
- I like that it has a lot of lines for weight training exercises. Some others did not have near enough for my needs.
- Some other journals I've looked at had much smaller spaces for writing in.
- Some journals had pictures on the cover of fitness models. I don't want to carry something into the gym that looks like the cover of a lady's fitness magazine or a men's muscle magazine either. I prefer the conservative fake leather look of this journal.
- The spiral binding allows it to lay flat for easy use.
- I found the brief section of common food counts handy. Best of all, they left space where I could add my own foods.
- The introductory material is helpful but brief. It tells you how to use the log. It doesn't tell you how to work out.
- It has a good weekly planning section at the beginning and goals/progress section at the end.
- The calendar in the back was handy for reference.
I will definitely buy this one again when I have filled in all the days.
The only thing I wish it would have are progression goals. As you lose weight/gain muscle, the caloric intake and weight being lifted should be accounted for. That would be a great milestone to keep track of and allow a page for recalculation of goals, etc.
Otherwise, this is one of the best journals out there. Of course its always nice to customize exactly what level of detail you want by making your own. But this one is comprehensive and easy to use for someone whose not ready to break out the excel spreadsheets and straight-edge lines in a notebook.
Also, I use each daily entry as a weekly entry. You don't have to go through the 13 week program that these pages allot for if you want to take the pace slower.
