I recently completed a round of P90X with dh last fall, and now that we're planning a second round starting in a couple of weeks, I'm looking for ideas to track my progress and hopefully provide motivation. 

 

I'm 5'6" and about 130 pounds, about a size 6-8 in pants, and I have lots of good squishy parts and a bit of muscle!  :)  My bathroom scale is really inaccurate and I have no other body measuring devices, besides a tape measure. 

 

My goal isn't to lose a bunch of weight, honestly I don't care if the weight goes down at all (except this teeny part of my brain that reminds me of the social idea that losing weight is good).  But I REALLY want to gain muscle and lose fat and build endurance and sculpt my muscles. 

 

So my question......Have any of you found great results from using any sort of device to help track these sorts of things, whether it be a better scale, a manual fat caliper, an electric body fat reader, or just a tape measure?  Or should I find a better way to motivate myself?  The thing is, I love stats!  I love seeing numbers change for the better and being able to track them over a period of time.  I also love having a record of what I did so maybe in a year I can look at it and see where my stats were when I was working hard.  Any ideas?  :)
