So I’ve been thinking about the next 15 weeks (because nearly a week of pre-season is over, so one week down YAY) and how last time around I kept all my daily stats update here online. Which is all very well and good, and I may do that again, but there are times when I just don’t get onto the computer, and I don’t always post every day and I found that sometimes it just made it harder to track what I was eating, what my exercise was like and at the end of the week it made it hard to see where I had gone well or gone wrong.
So this year I have decided to make a booklet that I can print off week by week – a nice A5 size, not too big, not too small, and to make it even prettier and easier to flick through to the right section, colour coded! So I would like to share this with anyone who is doing the 12 week challenge and anyone really who just wants to track what they are eating and exercising during the week. It gives you a weekly re-cap so that you can write down how many calories you ate, how many you exercised away and what the deficit (hopefully) is. It also gives you space to write down a bit of a re-cap of the week in general.
So please, feel free to download and use it. You can print it off week by week or the booklet as a whole. I have set it up so that each week can be folded separately and reads as a correct booklet. If you download it, let me know (you don’t have to obviously) and let me know how it works for you, or if you just want to query me about any of it. Enjoy.

Edited to add:
After a bit of thinking and a couple of comments I have updated the booklet so that it now has room for you to write your BMI on the weekly stats. I have also changed it from being such a colour intensive booklet. Rather than full colour backgrounds, it is now set up with coloured outlines, so it won’t take quite as much ink to print out (I didn’t really consider that at first… oops…) so I hope you can use this and enjoy.

Looks like an awesome diary, I have purchased one to see if it is any good for me just waiting for it to be posted but will have a go at this one too. Looks like it keeps an awesome record!! Good luck with your journey and I cant wait until kick off, rather missed the shopping lists LOL

Thank you so much for creating this booklet. I was googling images last night and bumped into this post. As I am entering PreSeason for Round 2 this is just the most perfect thing. Round 1’s results have reflected my preparation so I figure if I prepare really well for R2 – my results are going to be incredible. Lol.
Thanks again and I wish you continued success on your weight loss journey.

I’m glad that you can use the booklet, I was pretty slack and didn’t really do the 12wbt program properly this time round, so I have them all printed and ready to use for next time 🙂
Good luck with R2, I hope you kick arse! 😀

This is just fantastic! I too found this just from googling images, and as I am in prep for round 1 2012 this is perfect for me! Thankyou so much!

Hi Linda, I’m so glad that it could be of use to you 🙂
I’m also getting ready for Round 1, 2012 and I’ll be using these again – I really find that I can’t be successful if I don’t record what I’m doing. Plus I love lists and organisation lol 🙂
Good luck with Round 1, I’ll hopefully catch you in the forums, my username is Bamz.

Hi Jadey, I’m so glad you like it and that you can use it 🙂 I like things to look pretty if I have to look at them every day, especially when it’s about such an “ugly” subject as weight loss 🙂
