Look--a FREE Printable Body Measurement Chart!
Today I have a special gift for you.
It’s practical and pretty – it’s a measurement chart printable!
When you start using any workout, one of the most important ways to see if it is working for you is to track your results.
Why? Tracking and writing down your measurements will help increase your motivation and will-power, motivating you continue with your workouts.
Take your first set of measurements the day of your first workout, ideally before you work out. But just do it after, if you forget. Then, each week, re-measure to see how you are doing.
And if you are faithfully doing workouts that are NOT giving you results, you need to know that, too. And then make the switch to T-Tapp!
This is a powerful tool, one you will not want to skip when using T-Tapp workouts. Or any workout, really!
If your workouts are working, you should know it. And changes for the better in your measurements do NOT always show on the scale. In fact, they often do NOT show on the scale.
This chart will help you know when you are making real progress, even when you may not see the needle move on your scale!
If there’s one thing that will help you stay motivated with T-Tapp, it’s to see your progress each week!
Taking weekly measurements is what kept me going when I first started doing T-Tapp workouts, and lost 41 inches in just a few months.
Why not make measurement taking more fun, by having a cute form to fill out?!
For best results, I recommend that you choose one day a week to take measurements and record them on this printable body measurement chart. This will help keep your mind focused on the progress you're making, and help put the number you may see on your scale in perspective.
To get reliable measurements with this printable body measurement chart, choose where you will measure yourself each week for each body area. The most important thing is to measure the same way in the same place each week for meaningful results.
Here is what I suggest for each area on the printable body measurement chart:
After you've recorded all the numbers on the printable body measurement chart, take note of any increases or decreases. Add up all the numbers that are going in the direction you'd like, and make a note at the bottom of the chart. I like to also add the cumulative number below the chart, too. It can be very encouraging, especially when the scale is slow to move, or the changes are not yet easy to see in the mirror.
Hmm--that's a loaded question, isn't it?!
Because we're all built differently, what is a good set of measurements for one woman could be a very unhealthy set of measurements for another.
The concept of an "ideal" figure is a potential trap. As lovely as a Barbie doll might look, her looks are only one of many possible types of beauty. God is (thankfully) much more diverse and imaginative in how He creates and defines beauty!
So no, I am not going to give a set of numbers here.
I will say that for the sake of your cardiovascular health, you do want to have less weight around your middle than you have around your hip and thigh area.
But if you're trying to find a set of numbers to use as a goal, consider these thoughts:
