If you’ve followed me over the years you know that I’ve tried over and over again to lose weight and get healthy. If I’m being honest I haven’t tried as hard as I could have (especially since the pandemic) and I’ve given up over and over again. I’ve gotten discouraged and frustrated. I’ve suffered health setbacks and life has just gotten in the way.
Sound familiar? I’m at the point in my life where I’m tired of this and ready to get back in shape. Plus my son is getting married in November. After trying on the dress that I would love to wear, it is on! I want to get in that dress or one similar and not stress about how I look in it. Not to mention that I just want to overall look and feel better.
To help me with my mission I designed a new planner. I loved the one I used to have, but I can’t find it anymore. I found several that I liked, but none that I really loved. With those in mind, I created my own. At the moment it’s twelve pages. I may add more as I work through this journey or as you suggest pages that you’d like me to create.
I wanted a blend of fitness and wellness. So there is ample space for recording/planning workouts. There are pages for challenges and goal setting too. I also included space for Bible study/devotions and mindfulness. I needed a place where I could make sure that I was including everything, spiritual and physical wellness.
Fitness and Wellness Planner
Record before and after photos along with photos along your journey.
Record measurements and check off or plan a month’s worth of workouts. Use stickers, photos or jot down quotes, scriptures, or anything that motivates you.
Plan a challenge and keep up with how much weight you’ve lost along your journey.
Write down your long-term and short-term goals along with deadlines.
I love this part of the fitness and wellness planner! This is the crux of it. Print this page out daily if you like. Keep track of your goals and motivation for the day whether it’s fitness, wellness, or self-care. Check off what type of workout you did or write your own in like a rest day for example. Keep track of steps, calories, water intake, and your mood. Not to mention there’s a whole section for self-care!
I’m a planner by nature and I have found that if I have a planner I’m more likely to workout and keep to it. I guess it holds me more accountable. By putting something in writing I’m more likely to stick it. Plus it helps me keep track of what I’ve done and how far I’ve come. I still log my food and workouts in my apps on my phone. But this is a great way to journal along with it.
For now, this is a free download. I may decide to upload it to my Etsy store at some point so grab it while you can! Enjoy this planner and I hope it helps you on your journey. I’m hoping it helps me too. Please let me know what you think!
