Happy Friday, everyone! I hope you’ve had a great week! Today I thought I would share some printables that I recently made JUST FOR YOU!
I first decided to make these printables after a failed attempt at finding the perfect meal planner online. I wanted something that gave me a place to organize my meal plan AND prep a grocery list. However, most of the meal planners I found online only give you a couple lines to list your groceries, and the more detailed grocery list planners I looked at were sometimes too detailed, dividing the list into categories I didn’t need or including grocery “staples” I never purchase.
So I took matters into my own hands and voila! A dual meal planner/grocery list that you can print double sided and that’s spacious enough to fit everything! Here’s the grocery list:
The printable grocery list is divided by department (produce, frozen foods, etc). I started making my lists this way after one too many times coming home from the store realizing I forgot to grab green beans because they were sandwiched between “paper towels” and “cereal” on the shopping list. Dividing the list by department means I won’t be jumping up and down the list (or the store aisles) as I shop.
My meal planner printable comes in two variations: blank boxes and with breakfast/lunch/dinner divisions. I don’t usually plan my breakfasts and lunches since I eat just about the same thing for breakfast and lunch each day, but I included a version of the printable with divisions in case you need a more detailed plan:
And while I don’t personally subscribe to the philosophy at the bottom of my menu planner, when I found that quote online I thought it was way too hilarious to not include ;)
And finally, a fitness tracker! Because it isn’t all about what you eat! I like planning my fitness routines for the week, because if I don’t write them down they often just won’t happen. Plus, it’s exciting to see at the end of the week how hard I’ve worked!
My fitness tracker gives you a place to write down and check off your cardio and strength workouts, a place to record your total minutes working out for the day, and a place to check off how much water you drank…
…And at the bottom there is also a place to write down your fitness goal for the week!
I hope you enjoy these printables! I know I sure have :)
OH AND COOL NEWS!
Ever since making these printables, I’ve started tracking my meals and working out 4-5 times a week! I’ve mostly been doing cardio and strength training using Jillian Michael’s workout DVDs (30 Day Shred, Ripped in 30, Banish Fat, Boost Metabolism, and No More Trouble Zones). I’ve gone from barely drinking enough water a day to drinking closer to 96 ounces a day, and with all this healthy eating, exercise, and water intake my HbA1c has gone from an already fantastic 6.1 all the way down to 5.9!! (In case you’re new here, I have type 1 diabetes) Hopefully I’ll have even more exciting news for you in the next couple months ;)
