Happy April, Family!
Joe and I are so excited about this month’s tracking challenge. And, we truly believe it is a challenge which can benefit everyone.
Of course, what you track and what tracking tools you use are completely up to you!
While Joe and I will be tracking every bite of food we eat in Cronometer, you don’t have to do that. But, we do recommend you track something this month. And, we are sharing some printable worksheets with this post to help give you some ideas.
For those who want to track very broadly, you’ll find a “30 Day April Tracking Challenge” worksheet. There’s one circle for every day of the month. This would be great for someone who is confident in their big picture plans for April. Perhaps they simply want to check the circle at the end of each day when they accomplish what they said they would do within a 24-hour period.
If you’re wanting to be more specific in your habit tracking this month, there is a “Habit Tracker” worksheet. This would be helpful for someone who wants to be accountable for sticking to their meal plan as well as other positive habits like exercising, getting to bed at a certain time, scheduling relaxation, etc.
There is a purple-ish blue “2KrazyKetos April Challenge” worksheet for simple tracking of what you ate for breakfast, lunch and dinner. This would be great for someone who wants to be accountable for what they’re eating without being as ingredient-specific as Cronometer requires.
For those who would like to take a closer look at how many times they actually eat and drink in a day, there is a “2KrazyKetos April Challenge” worksheet with an hourly format. It is designed to capture all dining, snacking, (and coffee), experiences you have between the hours of 8 am and 8 pm. Of course, you can create a schedule that works better for your personal eating window. But, our worksheet can get you started.
Finally, our “Daily Check In” worksheet can help you track your gratitude, daily non-scale victories, feelings, and plans moving forward. It’s a great resource for people who want to take a closer look at how they respond to daily stressors and what is within their power to change.
April has the potential to uncover more than just Easter eggs. This month, we have the opportunity to hunt for good habits we can celebrate and bad habits we’d like to actively work out of our life. This month, there is success to be gained. And, together, we are going to track it down!
I think this is an awesome challenge for April! Sometimes I think I am doing something every day and when I keep track find I have skipped a few days. When you write it all down it becomes clear why you are not successful.
Really liking the April challenge. I do so much better when I track my food and haven’t done so in over a year. Just renewed my Carb Manager subscription and I’m tracking meals for the month. Thanks for the encouragement to do better.
