Self Enquiry Journalling Tool for 2021 : Now online (Seven-month journal)

I hereby present the public beta release of Self Enquiry Journalling Tool for 2021 within Google Sheets.

Download for Public beta use. Please make a backup copy towards your own Google account.

What a long and arduous development it’s been. This is for seven (7) months of enquiry. Below is the copy of the instructions for all to get started. Welcome to the Internet’s least visited independent thoughts on decentralised Nutritional Science.

Public beta version (B 0.11). Please acquaint with all disclaimers and fine notes before proceeding. Your health remains your own responsibility, accountability and diplomatic willingness ~ to pursue. Nobody, including the superiority of “dieticians”, “doctors”, “pharmaceutical” industries as well as this concept initiative – should authenticate or override FOR you, over your own biological behalf. ~ AW™.

Where and how do we begin? The overall process.

  1. Please acquaint yourselves with this concept initiative’s overview here.
  2. Please consider signing up a Google® account. And download the Self Enquiry Journalling Tool.
  3. Make a backup copy of this Journalling Tool (Go to “FILE >> Make A Copy”) to your’s Google® account folder of choice. Please do not simply edit over the original master public release. You must make a backup copy towards your own Google account.
  4. Read the first “WELCOME” sheet , this is to both enforce and remind you over the goals and overview of Self-Enquiry.
  5. Moving onto sheet #2 “ABBREVIATION” ~ (physically) examine your nutritional supplementary inventory. What are you currently using as supplements? Try abbreviating them into short words and enter them here. PLEASE NOTE: that this is not dynamic, and only for your own manual referencing purposes. However, at least, you can Find+Replace command at any stage. Here are a few examples although you must re-adapt to your own private needs:
    1. “MGCH” ~ refers to magnesium chelated.
    2. “KBC” ~ refers to potassium bicarbonate.
    3. “ACV” – refers to Apple cider vinegar.
    4. K2MK4/mk7s ~ refers to Vitamin K2MK4 or MK7s.
    5. “VITD” ~ refers to Vitamin D. You can try “LVITD” for liquid vitamin D. Or even abbreviated brand name DOCVITD ~ to denote Doctor’s best® brands, as an example.
  6. Begin your Self Enquiry Journalling! Each sheet represents one (1) week of journalling ~ consisting of seven (7) daily entries.
  7. Do not forget to put in a summary each week within End Of Week Notes as this gets collated in the “SUMMARY” Sheet.
  8. The “SUMMARY” Sheet provides you birds eye view of anything you’ve entered under each week’s main summary of thoughts.
  9. In need for custom heading? Edit the custom heading and this will be automatically renamed towards ALL other weekly sheets. The numbers for these will also be tracked under the End Of Week Notes.

Technical notes
  1. You will be working within (what will soon become) a very densely-populated and content-heavy ~ spreadsheet. Inputted by nothing less (or nothing more) than your own efforts over how detailed you wish to Self-Enquire. Hence ensure you are viewing this on adequately high screen resolution of at least 1920 x 1080.
  2. Please do not try overriding anything by adding / deleting rows or columns. Errors will occur and you must keep a periodical backup copy to return to should you make (massive) unintended changes.  
  3. If you do not have access to a high screen resolution please use CONTROL+MINUS or COMMAND+MINUS keyboard shortcuts to browser-zoom out to provide a greater viewing range.
  4. Important shortcut whenever you are editing a cell:  CONTROL+RETURN (PC) or COMMAND+RETURN (MAC) to enter the next line /  line breaks.
  5. Important shortcut to quickly go to Next/Previous sheets: ALT/OPTION (MAC)+ARROW KEY or ALT (PC)+ ARROW KEY.
Disclaimer / Terms of Use / User Responsibility reminders
  1. Far too long to be included here ~ you are encouraged to read the T&Cs in the First / “WELCOME” Sheet of this Journalling Tool.

The details

The weekly entries
3/4 = The weekly entries

The life blood of everything . Each weekly Sheet (starting from “Jan 1” ) provides the following cell/s for entries.

  1. Mornings.
  2. Afternoons.
  3. Evenings.
  4. Fasting Glucose ~ at the moment it is only using 1, 2, 3,4 as placeholder etc just to illustrate progression. If no data is entered, simply delete / leave cell as blank.  Do not put zero or else Google+ will interpret zero as an additional entry to calculate its averages. 
  5. Fasting Ketones ~ at the moment it is only using 1, 2, 3,4 as placeholder etc just to illustrate progression.If no data is entered, simply delete / leave cell as blank.
  6. [Custom dynamic heading] – allows you to use your own heading. Enter them here (ONLY within Jan 1 sheet ~ Monday’s B22 cell) once, and the rest of the sheet will update.
  7. Value for the custom dynamic heading ~ enter your numeric data for the custom dynamic heading.
  8. Other notes.

 

End of week notes
4/4 = End of week notes

And then “End of Week” entries:

  1. Summary ~ anything inputted here will get collated to the “SUMMARY” Sheets.
  2. Glucose levels
  3. Training / exercise
  4. Supplementation
  5. Sleep

The dynamic charts shows all fasting glucose / ketones (if entered) from day to day. Also, another dynamic chart is provided to show, if any ~ your data as entered under the custom dynamic heading entered on Jan 1 sheet ~ “Monday” ~ cell “B22”.

Where to from here.

To remind ~ this public beta version only provides entries from 4th of January to August 1st. The next remainder will be offered in due course. The reason for this is to not bombard all users with 50+ sheets all at once. Another reason is to set and allow space and time for development, and refinements over its functionality. 

Feedbacks appreciated.

This is the “resulting gift”; out of nearing five years in the making.

Beyond writing the parent manuscript, its additional  book, all of its promotion and everything you read and see ~ is the work of only one (1) individual amidst involuntary, structural violence hardships.

I am well aware ~ this will not show anywhere near the top of Google® search results under keywords (along the lines of) “Excel journalling template”. But maybe if at least one stumbles across this ~ either by mistake or curiosity then one can only hope – sets off a journey unlike any other. Wishing they’d start sooner. Rather than later.

Thank you for visiting the Internet’s least visited independent thoughts on wellness and decentralised nutritional science.

Live-It-Forward,

AW™
