BLE and My Erin Condren Colorful Life Planner

Hey Everyone!

It’s been a while since I’ve posted, but I have been using my planners, and specifically I’ve been using my colorful vertical planner as a food journal.

For those that are new, Erin Condren is a planner company that offers a variety of different planner styles and sizes.  The following link will allow you to set up an account (which is free) and then they will send you a discount code via email that you can use in your first order.

I have been using one of my vertical, colorful, life planners as a food/exercise journal for the past year, and recently I’ve been adopting the Bright Line Eating food plan as my diet of choice.  A friend gave me this book, and I’m pretty sure it is going to be life changing.

As a result of reading this book, I’m even more motivated to use my Vertical Life Planner to keep record of my foods and exercise.  This was last week after officially beginning Bright Line Eating.


I then set up my planner for this week. 


I’m using Planner Chick Designs stickers this week for my sidebar and my exercise lists, and the Day Off sticker is from Krissyanne Designes. Both companies have their own websites and if you have specific questions, feel free to leave a comment!

I plan my food first in pencil. 


Then at the end of the day, I write what actually happened in pen!


I’m heading to the grocery store today so I haven’t planned lunch and supper yet, but it will happen very soon. 

This planner is perfect as a food journal because the three boxes provide a perfect layout for Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner. 

Right now you can select the 18 month option for your life planner, which means you can begin using it in July and go all the way until December 2018!  

If you have any questions about the ordering process, Erin Condren the brand, or Bright Line Eating, please don’t hesitate to ask in the comments, or send me an email!  My email is myerincondren@gmail.com

Happy Planning!!

 

Weekly Layouts

I’m loving my new planner and having fun with functional layouts!

December 26-January 1

January 2-8

January 9-15

January 16-22, my upcoming week. This is everything that I know of so far that is on my schedule. As the week progresses, I fill things in as needed. 

I enjoy this hobby so much!  Most used stickers shops are Krissyanne Deigns, EC, Libbie & Co, and Planner Chick Designs. 

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!
