In brief: Measurements

Record your measurements at chest, waist, hips, thigh, upper arms.
.. Record your level of weights successfully performed, number of repetitions, etc. There are apps you can find to help you with this.

In brief: Exercise

One great way of tracking progress is though Body Fat measurements.
Often when people are exercising, especially lifting weights, they build muscle mass, which may not result in weight loss as measured on a scale.

In brief: Pencil & Paper

Yes, seriously. If you wish to track your progress, think about writing down your times, weights, repetitions, how you felt.
.You'll then know what to compare this week with last week, etc. Failure to progress might be due to lack of rest, insufficient caloric intake, lack of sufficient effort. It's worth doing...Print out work sheets and it's easy!
