DIY: Fitness Binder

Happy Tuesday! Since I have been amping up my workout schedule and staying strict with my healthy lifestyle, I wanted to make a Fitness Binder to keep track of everything and my progress! This is really simple and cheap! So if you are serious about your health and fitness, I think organizing something similar to this would benefit you well!


1 inch Binder

Subject Dividers

Notebook Paper

Page Protectors


I found my binder on sale at Target with the 5 dividers already included! So, I decided on my categories next!

1. Motivation/ Goals: In this section I will write out my short term and long term goals, keep track of how I am doing on them. I will also keep things I find that motivate me, such as articles in magazines, quotes, pictures, etc…

2. Fitness & Nutrition Journal: This is where I will write down what I eat every day and the work outs that I do each day. This way I can be conscious of my effort.

3. Meal Plans: Here I will write out my dinners for the week. I write out what I am going to cook each night so I can make a list for the grocery store and don’t over buy, and so I don’t buy things I shouldn’t be eating. I also make a side list of my breakfast, lunch and snack options. One last thing I write down here is what I want to meal prep for the week when I get home from the grocery store.

4. Recipes: This is where I will keep healthy recipes that I have tried and liked, so I can go back to them easily whenever I want to cook it again!


After labeling my tabs, I split the notebook paper between “Journal” & “Meal Plans.” I put the page protectors in the back, and will be using them to put recipes and motivation articles and pictures in when I find them!


TaDa! That is it! You can customize your binder how you want for your own success! But this works perfectly for me!

Happy Training!

Xo, Erin
