If we have a good week, like one where we completed all of your exercises, we should reward ourselves. Our reward doesn’t have to include food; it can be anything or example treating ourselves to a movie. It’s been proven that journals and exercise logs have helped many individuals, who were looking to lose weight; we hope they will do the same for us too.
