FREE Printable Fitness Tracker!
Stick to your health and fitness goals with a free printable fitness tracker! Keep track of your daily exercise, meals, and water intake all in one place!
I recently took a survey over on my Instagram stories asking what the #1 habit was that people were currently working to build. (Or what habit they wished the were currently working to build! ;)) By far, the top two answers I received were…
- Getting into a consistent exercise routine
- Eating healthier food
I can’t say I was all that surprised. Over the last year or so, these have been the habits I’ve been working to build too!

My Fitness Story
I have always liked fitness, but I had been pretty sporadic about working out my entire adult life. I would go a month or two where I was really consistent about it. And then life would get busy and I would go several months where I didn’t work out at all.
Occasionally I would even get motivated enough to do a certain program. But again, once the program was over, I would get out of the habit of working out. This would result in me putting on some extra pounds and feeling more tired, lethargic, and just kind of all around “blah.”
Then a few years ago I had a surgery that was necessary, but one of the side effects was that it put me at a higher risk for osteoporosis and heart disease. To combat this risk, I KNEW I needed to be doing both strength training and cardiovascular exercise. I just needed to find a way to be more consistent about it long term!
Making a Change
One tried and true strategy I’ve found to help me be more consistent with any habit– but especially with healthy eating and exercise– is tracking my progress.
Yes, it’s an extra step. But writing down my workouts and tracking my eating has been absolutely essential to helping me stick to my health and fitness goals long-term. By tracking my workouts and getting into a consistent exercise habit, I ended up working out for 515 days in a row. (Don’t worry– at least one day/week was light yoga or stretching.)
I finally ended up breaking the streak on purpose because I had accomplished what I had set out to accomplish. Exercise is now a habit for me.
I also know that when I’m in the habit of writing down my food, I do a much better job at making healthy choices because my food log holds me accountable. (I once read a study where participants who logged their food lost twice as much weight as those who didn’t. That seems like a pretty convincing statistic to me!)
When I have healthy habits, I feel much better and have so much more energy. AND I now have more peace of mind about the health of my bones and my heart as well!
Free Printable Health and Fitness Tracker
If you’ve been around this blog for long, you know that any time I need to get organized or make a change in my life, I make a printable. It’s just what I do!
So of course when I started thinking about the best way to help people track their health goals, I created a pretty printable fitness tracker to do just that.
It’s pretty simple. Each day there is space to write down what type of workout we’re doing and how long we spend exercising. There’s room to write down what we ate for each meal, and even a little spot to track our water intake.
Having a record of what we’ve done each day keeps us accountable, and it’s great to be able to look back and see everything that we’ve accomplished!
Of course I’m not just keeping the fitness tracker printable all to myself– I’m sharing it with you as well! You can snag your free fitness tracker below!
[And you can see all 65+ free printables that we offer on the blog in our organizing printables library!]
If you’re working to build healthier habits when it comes to eating and working out, I hope this fitness tracker will be helpful for you! It’s pretty amazing what a simple tool like this one can do for our motivation and consistency. You’ve got this!

Hello Ms. Abbey! I was wondering where you get those cup shapes in the printable! Thanks!
Hi, Leah! To make the cup shape, I used the “trapezoid” shape in Microsoft Word, flipped it upside down, and then made an oval at the top of it for the rim of the “cup.” I hope this helps! Have a great week!
Congrats on losing 10 pounds! That is no easy task. Love the CUTE printable.

Hi Abby, Another fabulous printable – thank you! I just wanted to let you know that my daughter and I are such fans of your video. She is six years old and every Saturday we watch your newest video together. She loves you! Just curious if you have plans to share a budgeting organizational video anytime in the new year?
Oh, this is just made my whole week! That is SO sweet! I’m so glad that she enjoys them! I’m not quite sure yet if we will no a budgeting video this year. If we do, it will likely be toward the end of the year. Have you checked out our budget binder? Maybe it will help until then! 🙂 You can find it here: https://justagirlandherblog.com/how-to-save-more-money-this-year/. I hope 2018 is off to a fabulous start for you all! <3
