I’ve been diligently using my EC vertical planner as my food and exercise journal. I can’t say enough good things about this and how it keeps me accountable to what I’m eating each day.
Weight loss is 80% what you eat and 20% exercise so it’s really important to plan your food and then stick to the plan!!
Here are some of my recent weeks.
It’s becoming more of a habit now to pencil in my meals for the next day. I only plan one day ahead and keep my food very, very simple, following the Bright Line Eating guidelines.
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!
