Wellness Journal

New year, new goals!  It’s that time of year again when we get all exited about making changes and becoming better versions of ourselves. 

I’m ready to tackle my goal of healthier eating and a more active lifestyle. I’ve removed my Wellness Journal cover from last year’s journal, and locked it onto a new Erin Condren colorful vertical life planner and I’m itching to get started. 

These are my goals listed on the front cover!

The new planner has the vibrant gemtone colors inside and since my regular planner is a neutral hourly, I’m excited to work with these rich colors in my Wellneess Journal. 

Here are some pages from last year’s Wellness Journal. I simply write down what I ate and track my Fitbit steps and any other exercise that I do. I like to sprinkle in some motivational thoughts and some poetry here and there. 

Writing down everything that goes into my mouth actually motivates me because I don’t want to have to see a record of all the say M&M’s I consumed on a bad day!!  So I won’t eat them just to not have to write it down!!

I use the monthly layout to jot down how I’m doing emotionally as food is often an emotional response to what is happening in our lives. 

I do my best with this because it does take work and time to keep a daily record, but when I fall off the wagon, like in one of the blank layouts above (because it definitely happens), I just keep climbing back up and moving forward!

Note Pages

This is a duplication of something I did last year that I absolutely loved!  I keep a list of things I’ve ordered online and check them off once they arrive. It’s so easy to forget what you ordered, and this completely keeps me on track so I don’t lose or forget anything. 


I plan to use the first 2 note pages for this purpose. They are kind of in front of the notes tab anyway, so this seems like a great place to nestle these two pages into my planner. 


The box stickers are from Krissyanne Designs. You’ll find that I’m a huge #kaddict (KAD addict) and I use a LOT of her stickers. 

If you want to get some of these check box stickers, it’s sheet KAD 478. These are the bold colors. They also come in pastel.

Hourly News

My last post was my brand new hourly planner!  I have enjoyed this layout pretty well, but I am now mentally thinking of the times two hours ahead. Instead of having a day from 6am to 7pm, I need a day from 8am to 9pm. I’ve been playing around with whiting out the times. 


If only Erin Condren would sell this layout with no printed times. It would be perfect!

Here is this week with the times whited out after the day happens. 



I love how this looks!  By doing it after the day is over, many times are covered with stickers or writing, so it’s a quick job with my white out tape. 

On this December layout, I’m fully invested in looking at the times as 2 hours later. This is going to flow so much better for me. 


And at the end of the day, I’ll just white out the times I didn’t need!

I know that Inkwell Press has the perfect planner with blank lines, but I’m an EC girl and still love my EC planner. I can live with an adjustment on the hours for now!
