You can have too much of a good thing..exercise!

Keep an exercise log to monitor your progress. Written goals are more powerful than unarticulated ones. Each month write down your stats. For example: (1) completed a two-mile run in 18 minutes, or (2) bench-pressed 150 lbs x 10. Soon you will see your two-mile run is being accomplished in 17 minutes. This written record is a testament to your persistence and commitment.
