CarrieElle: Meal Planner and Food Journal Review and Giveaway Ends 5/26/14 TWO WINNERS!

Disclosure:
I received free planners for the purpose of this review. I received no monetary compensation. All opinions expressed herein are my own and based on my own use of and experience with the item(s).




Ya'll know by now that I am back on my weight-loss journey. So far, so good! I'm down 14 pounds.

The secrets to my success? Meal planning and tracking every bite that I eat! Yes, everything. 

I searched for the best planners for my needs and it wasn't easy... some were loaded with un-necessary distractions (and ads!) and some had blank pages.

I found the CarrieElle Etsy Shop and saw exactly what I needed.  

First up is the Weekly Meal Planner.



This planner has everything I want: it has monthly calendars (blank so that you may start at any month), then pages for your weekly menu, and a perforated grocery list.  These pages are only printed on one side, so you don't lose any information.

Along with the Food Journal, the Menu Planner has contributed to my weight loss. When I have meals planned for a week, there is no worry. I don't worry about what to cook, I don't worry about unhealthy meals, I don't worry about anything!



*12 monthly calendar pages (blank) for those who like to meal plan a month at a time 
**60 weekly meal planning pages, with a place to plan out meals for the week and a place to write your grocery list. 
***5 blank pages at the back of the book for notes/recipes/helpful websites 
****Delicious and easy lasagna recipe on the inside back cover

*****************************************************************************




I also received the life-saving (for me) Food Journal to record what food you've eaten, calories, water intake, vitamins, protein, calcium, and mood! Believe me, tracking is a huge benefit to any weight loss program.  Trying to remember how much you've eaten in a day is not easy.  With a food journal at your disposal, it is MUCH easier. 
I track EVERYTHING I eat.




Aren't these fabulous? I feel very blessed to have found them!
