FREE PRINTABLE FITNESS & FOOD JOURNAL

I personally created these and worked really hard on making them, so please don’t rip, steal, or claim them as yours.

It includes the following: 

  • Health/Fitness Goals: List the goals that you want to achieve, write down how you are going to do that, the date that you want to achieve the goals, and whether you achieve that goal or not.
  • Exercise Log: It is a weekly exercise log, check off what type of exercise you did (cardio, strength, etc), the activity you did (running, pilates, insanity, etc), how long you did the workout for, the amount of calories you burned, and for the notes you can write anything that wasn’t asked (for ex. if you ran today, in the note space you can write the distance you ran for, or if you did strength you can write the amounts of reps you did)
  • Food Log: It’s a weekly food log. You write down what you ate for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks, the amount of calories you ate in total, and the amount of water you drank (the unit can be, mL, ounces, or maybe the amount of water you drank in a glass)
  • Recipes to Try: If you ever wanted to cook/bake/make anything, you can write the name of the recipes (for ex: granola bars, or healthy pasta, etc, etc) the source (where you found it), and check off whether you like the recipe or not.
  • Grocery List: I created my own grocery list and to my surprise a lot of people liked it, so I wanted you to have a list of your own, so when you go grocery shopping you know what to buy :)
  • Meal Planner: (Weekly meal planner) Similar to the Food Log, instead you can use this chart as a way to plan out your meal, so you don’t waste time searching in your refrigerator looking for what to cook for dinner.
  • Body Measurements: (Monthly body measurements) The thing about creating printable that have to do with measuring progress is that some people may do it weekly, other do it monthly. So, I chose monthly because I don’t want you to get stress if you didn’t see any changes within a week. I gave you 6 weeks although there are usually 4-5 weeks in a month, so you may have the row empty. You can measure it with any unit you want (cm or in) Although I should have left some empty boxes for those who want to measure other body parts that I didn’t include, I ran out of space (sorry >.<)
  • Weight Tracker: This is an annual weight tracker which you can use to track your weight throughout the whole year. For the loss/gain you write whether you loss or gain a specific weight (for ex. gain 5 pound, loss 2 pound, etc, etc)

I hope this is helpful :) If there is something that you want me to make or if you have any question you can always leave it in my ask box ^.^

‘Fat’ is usually the first insult a girl throws at another girl when she wants to hurt her.

I mean, is ‘fat’ really the worst thing a human being can be? Is ‘fat’ worse than ‘vindictive’, ‘jealous’, ‘shallow’, ‘vain’, ‘boring’ or ‘cruel’? Not to me; but then, you might retort, what do I know about the pressure to be skinny? I’m not in the business of being judged on my looks, what with being a writer and earning my living by using my brain…

I went to the British Book Awards that evening. After the award ceremony I bumped into a woman I hadn’t seen for nearly three years. The first thing she said to me? ‘You’ve lost a lot of weight since the last time I saw you!’

‘Well,’ I said, slightly nonplussed, ‘the last time you saw me I’d just had a baby.’

What I felt like saying was, ‘I’ve produced my third child and my sixth novel since I last saw you. Aren’t either of those things more important, more interesting, than my size?’ But no – my waist looked smaller! Forget the kid and the book: finally, something to celebrate!

I’ve got two daughters who will have to make their way in this skinny-obsessed world, and it worries me, because I don’t want them to be empty-headed, self-obsessed, emaciated clones; I’d rather they were independent, interesting, idealistic, kind, opinionated, original, funny – a thousand things, before ‘thin’. And frankly, I’d rather they didn’t give a gust of stinking chihuahua flatulence whether the woman standing next to them has fleshier knees than they do. Let my girls be Hermiones, rather than Pansy Parkinsons.

panic/anxiety attack

vye-leviathan:

pushed-too-far:

chris-sid:

jaspinder:

  • breath in for 4 seconds
  • hold your breath for 7 seconds
  • exhale breath for 8 seconds

repeat once or twice more.

This causes an autonomic nervous system shift from a sympathetic (fight or flight reaction) state to a parasympathetic response.

Use this for panic/anxiety attacks, exams, presentations.

Never not reblog

Tumblr got anxiety advice. Fuck yeah.

Read this earlier, and it helped me a lot tonight.
