Stay on Track with The Healthy Grail Health + Fitness Planner! #TheHealthyGrail

Stay on Track with The Healthy Grail Health + Fitness Planner!

Hey, Readers!

Working out and eating better have been two of the goals I set for myself to make myself into a better me last year. This is how I felt on the following days:

Day 1: Revved and ready for a challenging workout and super-duper careful about snacking on healthier foods.

Day 16: Reluctantly got through a workout and devouring a chunk of leftover chocolate cake by the end of the night.

Can you relate? Do you ever have trouble staying on track when you are trying to get fit and eat healthier? Yes, there are days I let loose a bit and indulge, but then I have trouble figuring out how many calories I have consumed, or the types of workouts I have done over the past few days. I have been looking for a way to sort out all of these issues when I found out about to The Healthy Grail: Health + Fitness Planner! It launched on March 6, 2017, and I was excited to check it out!

Randa Derkson, the creative mind behind The Bewitchin’ Kitchen, created this health and fitness planner because she was having the same issues, too. She found it difficult to keep track of her health goals because she was putting too much stock on her weight.

With The Healthy Grail, Randa wants users to focus more on attaining health goals than by worrying about the numbers on the scale. This planner has other functions as well. It also helps users with the following:

  • Write out their grocery lists
  • Plan out their meals
  • List goals to achieve
  • Follow your habits with a habit tracker.

Here are some of the features I believe make The Healthy Grail a fabulous tool to use for health and fitness planning.

“About Me” Page

This is a great page because it is as though you are introducing yourself to, well, you! It lets users see where you are at the beginning of your goals. Measurements of various parts of the body and sections about positive self-image and goals being achieved are there for users to get a picture of who you are, while not focusing on the nit-picky aspects of yourself. It lets users feel that they are only improving on the person on the page before them.

“Goal Planner” Page

Users are able to make their goals more attainable by establishing what they want to accomplish. There are boxes to list goal and to detail the steps you will take to achieve them. This page keeps you accountable for your actions. Having these steps written out also allows them to be real and not a wish in your head.

“Daily Food Log” Page

Each day, users can plan out their meals, keep track of their caloric intake and see the other proteins, carbs, fats and other nutrients are being consumed.  I love this page because meals can be thought of ahead of time so the guess work is taken away from you. You are also able to see what you are putting into your body and to switch things up to make planning meals more fun! Randa also suggests laminating this page, as well as a few of the “Weekly Health Log” pages. This makes it easier for users to wipe and reuse these pages.

The Healthy Grail is designed for all types of lifestyles. I can use this planner to continue my health and fitness goals. I would also have my eldest use this planner for herself as she plays basketball for a club team and she needs to weight train and eat in order to become stronger and perform better on the court.

I am a huge fan of The Healthy Grail!  Getting started with this planner makes me feel as though I am embarking on a journey where I am in control of the destination. I also love that users have the option of using it digitally or printing and binding it to have a hard copy at hand. This planner also focuses on becoming a better you by seeing your achievements and keeping you accountable for keeping up with your goals.

So what are you waiting for? Check out The Healthy Grail for yourself and start achieving your health and fitness goals today!

  1. First thing the pros tell you is to write down everything you eat all day long to see what is going on when in your life.

  2. My biggest issue whenever I try to set up a health and fitness goal is compliance. However, with the Healthy Grail, I can keep track of what I eat, minutes of exercise, etc. All in one glance. This will surely keep me motivated. I think my daughter would need this too.

    • It is great to have everything you need to track fitness and nutritional goal all in one place. I also want my daughter, who is an elite athlete, to use this to track her goals and the food she eats

    • This is how I feel whenever I start working out. It is tough, especially when those tempting foods are easily accessible and the workouts start getting harder to do

  3. The Healthy Grail sounds l like something I could really use. It is so important to keep ourselves healthy not just weight wise but by physically too. Thanks for sharing this awesome planner.

  4. This is such a great idea. I have found as I age, the numbers truly don’t matter because I look just as good at 140 now as I did at 120 back in the day. Our bodies are always changing.

  5. I almost always find myself going for the left over chocolate cake or convincing myself that just a small piece of chocolate wont hurt. It is so hard to stay on track but these steps are simple and I may give it a try. Thank you.

  6. What a great planner! I can see how it would really help you get organized .. especially when it came to meals and workouts. Anything to keep me focused on my goals is a good thing in my book!
