A meal or workout log is a piece of writing or note using a notebook, software, web tool or a mobile app that can help you to keep track of your daily meals and/or training habits.

Here is the idea: rather than thinking 24/7 about how many kgs/pounds I have gained this past Christmas season, as a new year resolution for 2022, how about I stop complaining and I immediately do something about it?

This article will tackle a few remaining adjustments aiming to succeed in our maintenance or weight loss goals during this coming holiday season.
