Stick to Keto and Have Fun Doing It With My Colorful Keto Journey!
When was the last time you indulged in something that was purely for fun and purely for you?
When did you last give yourself a chance to get lost in a task that makes you smile – a task with no expectations, just enjoyment?
If you're like most adults living a busy life, the answer lies somewhere between "1982" and "I have absolutely no idea." Needless to say, we're all a little overdue for some no-expectations fun in our lives. :)
My Colorful Keto Journey:A Printable Keto Journal and Adult Coloring Book
Track your goals, journal your progress, and color your way through this motivating and uplifting 85-page printable keto journal and adult coloring book!
By the way, keto friend, you are NOT too old for coloring! Research has shown that the simple act of coloring can benefit adults in a wide variety of ways, including reducing stress, increasing creativity, and improving mood. Basically, it's impossible to frown when you're coloring a smiling avocado. :)
A Sneak Preview of What's Included...
I set out to make something for the keto community that's FUN (capital letters absolutely required!) and a little silly (because life is too short to be serious all the time), yet inspiring, motivating, and encouraging. Here's what you'll get in My Colorful Keto Journey:
Keto basics (for those who are new to keto or want a quick reference)
30+ colorable full-page quotes (some inspirational, some entertaining)
Recipe cards (both blank cards and six of my favorite keto recipes)
Notes pages (can be used for general notes or as a journal)
Colorable elements just about everywhere (your inner child will never get bored!)
Immeasurable happiness and many smiles
Plus a few surprises!
While My Colorful Keto Journey is a digital product, it’s designed to be printed and compiled into a notebook. This allows you to print extras of certain pages (like goal tracking pages and recipe cards), making it a journal that grows with you and your accomplishments.
Bonus: Lifetime Free Updates!
Even better, by simply purchasing once, you get access to any future updates of the journal at no extra charge. If I decide to add more coloring pages, more journaling pages, more recipes... you'll get the updates for FREE!

Frequently Asked Questions
Is this only for people who are new to keto?
Not at all! My Colorful Keto Journey is suitable for people on any day of their keto journey. You can pick up monthly progress journaling and tracking right where you are, and you can backfill a few details (like weight loss so far).
Do you mail the journal to me?
It's a printable journal, so it will be delivered to your inbox in a digital PDF file which you can then print (using a color printer or black-and-white printer).
Do I need anything specific to use this journal?
I recommend purchasing high-quality colored pencils, card stock, three-hole sheet protectors, and a 1/2" or 1" binder. These don't cost much and will go a long way in keeping your journal pages protected and organized.
Additionally, while you can color the entire journal with colored pencils, you can also use markers or crayons for some of the larger designs. Do what appeals most to you!
I haven't colored anything since I was a kid! Am I actually going to like this?
I can't speak for you, but I'll tell you my experience. Prior to developing this journal, I also hadn't colored anything since I was a kid. While I was developing it, I realized I should probably try out this whole adult coloring thing.
Verdict: I LOVE IT! I don't consider myself a very creative person, so I was shocked by how much I enjoy the process. It's such a nice break from the go-go-go pace of life, plus it's rewarding to see pages come to life with the colors you choose. Coloring is a great way to unwind at the end of a day (and it's carb-free! ;)).
Do you have any information about the benefits of coloring?
Sure do! There are many sources, but here are a few quotes for you:
"Coloring definitely has therapeutic potential to reduce anxiety, create focus or bring [about] more mindfulness." (Marygrace Berberian, a certified art therapist and the Clinical Assistant Professor and Program Coordinator for the Graduate Art Therapy Program at NYU)
“Groundbreaking research in 2005 proved anxiety levels dropped when subjects colored mandalas."
“[Coloring] increases ‘the feel good’ neurotransmitter dopamine and can reduce stress hormones, like cortisol, leaving you feeling mentally clear and calm." (Meredith Malkin, a mental health counselor and expressive arts therapist at the University of Central Florida)
“A 2016 study led by an assistant professor at Drexel University found that 45 minutes of art making resulted in lower cortisol levels."
Pretty interesting stuff, right? While I certainly can’t guarantee any sort of benefit from using My Colorful Keto Journey, I’ve found that coloring is relaxing, rewarding, and a stress reducer.
Do you offer refunds?
Due to the digital nature of this product, I am unable to offer refunds. However, I will help you troubleshoot any technical issues you have with downloading and opening the file.
My name is Jessica and I run a blog that focuses on keto, low-carb, and low-sugar recipes called Forget Sugar Friday. (Yep, weirdest blog name ever, but that's a story for another day.) My guy Jonathan has been on keto for a few years now and I finally took the plunge in mid-2018. (What took me so long?!)
While I didn't have any weight to lose, keto has substantially improved my life: no more carb cravings, non-existent PMS, better energy, improved body composition, veggie cravings for the first time in my life... I could go on and on. I can't imagine going back to eating the way I did before! (The crazy part is I was already eating sugar-free and gluten-free, so I didn't think it was possible to feel better. I was wrong!)
What I love most about keto is the community. I feel so lucky to be a part of such a wonderful group of people who are focused on improving their diet, their health, and their life. It's a fantastic community that inspires me each and every day!
