I've been working on improving my overall fitness for the past few months. My strategy has been to try and integrate a bit more physical activity into my lifestyle gradually, with the thinking being that if I introduce it this way I should be more able to keep it going and less at risk of burning myself out.
So far, the results have been positive, I feel better and seem to have a bit more strength / endurance then before. I'm not in too bad shape at the moment (based on BMI I am at ideal weight, but more of it is likely fat than should be, as I do have a bit of a potbelly). My goals are rather modest,
- Lose the potbelly
- Improve core muscle strength
- Improve general stamina.
I'd like to get started on tracking progress, to see how I'm doing and to see if my current level of exercise will be sufficient. Currently just tracking weight and waist measurements.
But what other measurements (preferably easy to take) would be worth tracking?
