Delay, Don't Deny LIFE Journal

Delay, Don't Deny LIFE Journal

by Gin Stephens




This is a six-month companion journal for members of the Delay, Don't Deny intermittent fasting community. This community is based on the work of Gin Stephens and her original book: Delay, Don't Deny: Living an Intermittent Fasting Lifestyle.

In today's app-based world, some of us are old-school, and we prefer a paper and pencil approach. This journal is a tool for us! The Delay, Don't Deny LIFE Journal is packed with simple yet powerful tools that will allow you to interact with your thoughts and track your results in a way that works for you. You can pick and choose from among the many options for both reflecting and tracking.

This LIFE journal includes sections for motivational and reflective entries, such as "Non-Scale Victories" and "Affirmations". There is a section for goal setting, a reflective food journal, and a traditional journal, where you can respond to the original 30 journal prompts from DDD (or create your own unique prompts, based on what is meaningful to you).

Interested in tracking your fasting time and/or eating window length? There are a couple of places where you can do that. First, there is a "Fasting Tracker", where you can shade in your daily eating windows and/or fasting periods. You can also take more detailed notes about your daily eating window in the "Weekly Calendar and Planner" section. If you exercise, you can note that in the "Movement Journal".

If you use the scale, there is a section to record your daily weight and calculate your weekly average. Then, you can plot it on the weight loss tracking graph. You can create personalized weight loss milestones, and shade in your progress as you reach each one. In addition to (or instead of) tracking progress using the scale, you may want to record your measurements and see how those change over time. Many IFers find that they lose inches before pounds, and measuring is a great way to illustrate this type of progress. There is also a section for you to include progress photos, which are a fantastic way to see just how much your body is changing from month to month. Finally, there is a "Custom" section, which you can use in any way that works for you. This is a place for you to take notes, or create your own user-specific record or reflection pages.

Get ready to chart your own path to success over the next six months, using the Delay, Don't Deny LIFE Journal!
