Thank you for your interest in this no frills Life
Journal. Youíll find no adverts, no recipes, and no
inspirational quotes. All this can be found
elsewhere. It is not a replacement for your mindfulness
journal if you use one. Use it along side your journal
to record your physical data. That said, it is designed
to be a stand-alone journal.
This Life Journal was born out of the three, yes
three, diaries and logs that I was using every day and
at the weekend to record my food, activities, etc. Each
book provided for a different aspect, none did
everything. All had items I never used and all have
extra categories written in every day by hand. On top of
the three logs there are the 12 accountability questions
asked by my PT every Saturday.
Personally I find it easier to see what Iíve been up
to when itís been written down. It also makes it easier
to find favourite recipes. There is nothing worse than
having your family ask for Ďthe spaghetti thingyí that
you cooked the other week and not know what they are
talking about or, if you do, not know where to find it.
Most people who keep diaries or logs know the
benefits of journaling. Keeping a diary, for food or
anything else, encourages people to carve out a little
space in their busy day for themselves.
The Life Journal has pages for you to write out your
beginning statistics and goals. Then, at the end there
is a partner to this page at the back so that you can
see if youíve achieved your aims.
Using this Journal still requires the use of other
forms of recording in order to fill in the week summary
page and the daily pages. My go-to apps are My Fitness
Pal, WomanLog, my fitness tracker app and my cook books.
There are spaces for you to record your weekly meals or
record what you ate.
You can start the journal on whatever day and
whatever month. It is designed to be started when you
get your act together! If you want to start the week on
a Thursday because thatís slimming club day, you can.
There is a calendar, spaces for macronutrients,
sleep, exercise, water intake, weight ...... Iíve tried
to think of everything that needs recording to make life
easier. You just need to find maybe 30 minutes to an
hour once a week for your weekly stats and meal
planning, and five to 10 minutes every day to track your
food, sleep, exercise etc
