Fitness and Eating Journal Giveaway

My birthday is like my New Years.  It’s a time for me to reflect on the previous year, the life I’m living, who I am, and where I want to be.  It is my time to set some new years resolutions, Ashley style.

Last year I started a new job, completed my masters degree, planned my wedding, got married, went on a honeymoon to Europe, and settled into my new role as wife and puppy owner!  It was a wild and crazy year, but still full of so many wonderful things.

As I shared on Friday, I did a pretty good job tackling my 28 by 28 list but if I’m being honest with y’all (which I always strive to be) I feel like a broken record some times with my weight loss.  Considering all of the life changes this past year, I’m thrilled to be ending it at 220 pounds.  On the flip side though, I feel stuck some times on this quest to reach my weight loss goals.

This past week I had a fantastic opportunity to try out Tidy Mighty’s Daily Overall Health Log and Monthly Exercise & Fitness Calendar.  The truth is, I often lose sight of what I’m eating, how much I’m eating, and how my workouts line up with my eating habits.  Using Jacque’s fitness and eating journals really put things in perspective for me!

Tidy Mighty Monthly Exercise & Fitness Calendar

I logged my exercise after I had completed it but this calendar is a great way to plan out your future workouts.  Now that I’m back at a gym and I’ll be doing a more structured weight lifting program I will probably use this log to plan ahead.  For now though, it’s a great way to track what I’ve done.

Tidy Mighty Daily Overall Health Log

The Daily Overall Health Log though was a real eye opener for me.  I was shocked how few fruits and veggies I was consuming.  It’s easy for me to think that my meals are balanced but when you write them done and see your log over time, it’s really made clear how you’re eating.

What I learned last week was that I need to eat more fruits and veggies and I need to limit my sugar intake… and continue tracking!  It’s you’re anything like me, sometimes I just need something I can hold, use bright colors on, and write on.  Although I love some of the online logs, I really enjoyed creating a binder and using Jacque’s logs.

Jacque has a number of great logs, which y’all should check out, but my favorite is her Health and Fitness Organizer Kit.  This kit includes 5 of her printables, including the 2 I used last week. For Coffee Cake and Cardio readers, Tidy Mighty is offering 10% off your purchase of anything in her Etsy store by using code 10off at checkout.

One Coffee Cake and Cardio reader also has a chance to win the Daily Overall Health Log and the Monthly Exercise & Fitness Calendar!

This is a short week for me, woo hoo, as I’m heading up to Bethlehem, PA for Runner’s World’s first ever half marathon and festival!  I’ll be running the 10K on Saturday, so this week will be about consistancy, fueling my body, and getting in a few short runs.  Oh yeah, and enjoying the start of my 29th year of life!

    I’ve never tried an actual food journal! I use an app on my phone though! I’d definitely like to use the exercise journal!!

    P.S. Are you able to come to the Virginia Bloggers meet up on Saturday?? It would be so fun to meet you in person!

    I am always trying new ways to stay organized but never succeed! I would use the Health and Fitness organizer and also the Budget/personal finance organizer. I need to stay on track with my health goals and also be more organized at my salon with expenses and what not :)

    I love the Monthly Exercise / Fitness Calendar. I have been meaning to do this for a while but never seem to find the time. The MCycle calendar would come in handy when we decide to have kids.

    I would definitely use the Health/Fitness Goal Tracker and the Weekly Meal Planner. Planning meals is the absolute HARDEST thing for me to do, but when I do, out household runs SO much better!

  6. Jennifer says

    I could definitely use the Health and Fitness Organizer. If I actually write down and plan a workout I find it harder to think up excuses to skip it.

    I like the health / fitness journal. I just got a 6 week training &nutritional workout plan, and this would be great to use.
    and happy birthday!
