As you may know by now, I am an avid journaler and have been for years. If I could only keep one practice from my wellness repertoire, journaling would be it! It’s been the catalyst for most of my successes, a-ha moments and, most importantly, the growth of my relationship with myself.
That’s why I’m beyond excited (picture me waking everyone up with my crazy celebration song and dance this morning… Brian, Lola and Tara were not impressed) to share today’s big news…
🎉The Results Journal is HERE!🎉
The Results Journal is a guided approach to brainstorm, choose, track and refine your goals in every area of your life. It’s the exact system I’ve used for years and cultivated over decades, now available to the public for the first time.
I’ll give you more juicy details about the journal later in this post, but before we get there, I want to help you get in the right mindset while you wait for yours to arrive. First I’ll share how harnessing the power of a journaling practice can help you reach your goals (including a super personal story from one of my team members). Then I’ll let you in on some behind-the-scenes details of how the journal came together!
How does journaling help you reach your goals?
Journaling is one of the most powerful, yet underrated practices we can keep in our wellness toolboxes. I believe that consistent journaling, paired with carefully curated exercises and prompts, can move mountains. I am who I am today because of journaling.
But don’t just take it from me—studies show that you’re a whopping 42 percent more likely to reach your goals when you write them down (source). Beyond that, identifying specific actions to support your goals and being held accountable for following through on them (by an accountability buddy or progress report of some kind, for example) further boosts your chances of success.
One study of adults who needed a medically-necessary biopsy showed that journaling for 20 minutes, 3 days in a row actually helped them heal faster (source). YES, you read that right! If it sounds like magic, that’s because it is.
Here’s a real life example: One member of Team Crazy Sexy was dealing with some mental and physical challenges post-partum. She loved her family and her life, but still felt a little lost and disconnected from her inner wisdom. When we were developing and testing The Results Journal (yup, our WHOLE team put this baby through the ringer… we wanted it to be the best it could be for you!), she used it to track her habits more closely and connect with how she felt on a day-to-day basis.
In doing so, she lost 10 pounds in 3 weeks! That’s obviously wonderful and I’m thrilled for her because she has more energy and feels more like herself, but it’s not even the best part. The best part is that journaling helped her find her way back to herself after her entire world had been turned upside down.
Anxiety, fear, grief, anger, uncertainty… they’re simply no match for the power of journaling.
What makes The Results Journal different from other journals?
After journaling for over 3 decades, I feel like I’ve tried just about every configuration and design out there! I couldn’t find exactly what I wanted, so I decided to design my own. And the heart of what makes this journal unique is written on the very first page:
Supercharge your health. Amplify your joy. Rock your dreams.
Sounds pretty great, right? But this is more than just a fluffy tagline—these words carry deep meaning and embody what sets The Results Journal apart from the rest. This is a holistic, supportive, joyful approach to creating the life you want.
Each piece of the tagline also represents a key component of the journal, some of which might sound familiar because I’ve been hinting at (and sharing) them for months!
The Wellness Tracker helps you supercharge your health.
When you feel your best, you do your best, which is why tracking the details of a healthy lifestyle will put you in the best possible position to reach your goals. So, each day, you’ll fill out the Wellness Tracker in your Results Journal.
The five focus areas in the tracker are based on my 5 pillars of wellness: optimizing what you’re eating, drinking and thinking, and how you’re resting and renewing (aka movement and play).
We’ll go over each of the pillars, why they’re important and how to track them in detail in The Results Journal, but for now, know this: The purpose of this daily exercise is to get honest about your lifestyle practices. It’s here to help you observe and notice patterns that support or detract from feeling your best. It is NOT an invitation to feel guilty or beat yourself up (please don’t do that my friend!). Instead, think of this process of taking an inventory as a catalyst for the change you want to see.
The Success Mindset Practice helps you amplify your joy.
How you mentally start your day is as important as what you eat, your self-care practices and how you show up in the world. The energy we put out into the world has a way of coming back to us. Negativity breeds negativity. Positivity welcomes more positivity.
But keeping your chin up and staying focused on the good stuff in life isn’t always easy. That’s why the Success Mindset Practice is an essential daily component of The Results Journal. It’s not about being all sunshine and rainbows every second—it’s about elevating your energy and directing it toward your highest potential so you can reach your goals. You’ll do that by tuning in to how you feel, what you’re grateful for, your intentions and affirmations… all of which I’ll guide you through in the journal!
Big Sky Goals help you rock your dreams.
While many of us are good at getting things done in the short term, too often we never stop to get that eagle-eye perspective on where our life is heading in the long run. That’s why a huge part of The Results Journal is about helping you identify and take meaningful action toward your Big Sky Goals.
You might think that your goals are out of reach. Or maybe you aren’t even sure you know what your goals should be! Well, I’m here to tell you that 1. you’re not alone, 2. it’s ok—please be gentle and try to meet yourself where you are, and 3. with the right tools, setting and reaching goals that light your heart on fire and improve your life is 100 percent possible.

As I said before, if you read the blog regularly then you might recognize that I’ve been sharing some of the journal exercises. I was so excited about creating The Results Journal that I couldn’t help but leave you little bread crumbs along the way! And now that the journal is finally here, it can help you bring all of these practices together in a way that boosts your health and happiness, makes you a magnet for good energy and brings your wildest dreams within reach.
Not sure if The Results Journal is for you? Here’s some more info to help you decide…
- Each journal is intended to be used for 3 months. In that time, you’ll be guided through simple daily / weekly / quarterly exercises to help you boost your self-care habits, adopt a mindset that supports joy and success, and take action toward your Big Sky Goals.
- The journal is available in two gorgeous cover options—Classic and Galaxy. The Classic comes with a dark grey linen-like finished cover with gold foil accents. The Galaxy features a gorgeous limited-edition full-color design printed on durable heavy cover paper. Choose the one that makes you most excited to crack it open!
- Both cover versions are 8.25” x 5” and have two ribbon markers. They’re the perfect size to easily fit in your messenger bag, backpack or purse. They both also contain the same high-quality, eco-friendly, 30% post-consumer interior pages.
- If you’re as excited as I am to get your hands on this journal, I encourage you to act fast. Because this is a new product, my team and I had to use our best guess as to how many to order. As a result, we only have a limited quantity. When they’re gone, we’ll order more… but production lead time takes a while (months, in fact)! The next opportunity to order will be in early 2020, so go snag yours right now!
I’m so over-the-moon thrilled about this journal, I still have to pinch myself to believe it’s really here! I feel like I’m sending my baby out into the world and I can’t WAIT to see the wonderful things you do with it. Mwah!
