Journaling sounds a little like something a middle school girl would do, but I believe it's just what you need to see your adulthood progress. When I first began my CrossFit journey in August 2011 (yay for my four year anniversary!), it would have been favorable if I had recorded my times, weights, and movements.

Not only is it a mental triumph but also physical achievements of which I did not picture myself accomplishing. Start your journaling now.
