Can’t stop, won’t stop! Emilee is on a roll with her health and fitness planning. She makes it easy to track and super pretty by adding stamping in her planner. Read on to see what tips and tricks she has for you.
Emilee here! I’m on a pretty large journey to getting healthy. I keep a separate planner for my healthy meal planning, tracking my weight watchers points, and exercises. I could use a phone app, but I really like having something tangible that I can flip through. Since this is something that is very important to me, I wanted to make sure it was fun and pretty. Today I’m going to show you what stamps I use in my health & fitness planner.
In my sidebar I use stamps to notate what my allotted weight watchers points are for the week. With weight watchers, as you lose weight your allotted points go down. So I like to keep track of that at the start of the week so I know exactly how many points I can use. For this, I use the large box from the Basic Tabs set. If you’re not on weight watchers and just interested in keeping a health/fitness planner, you could use this box for any reminder.
I’m not a huge breakfast eater [I’m working on it…] so I usually have a protein smoothie. How CUTE are these blender stamps with the sentiment “STOP Smoothie Time”?! They are available in the new August Release set, Kitchen.
Next in my sidebar I have the matching dashed circle from Basic Tabs. This is where I notate my weekly weigh-in loss [or gain…]. To show this, I use the scale icon from Plan Fitness. Also, from Plan Fitness I use the running shoe to represent my Fitbit tracking. Using the word “goal” from Like a Boss, and the weekly date tracker from Rupert Tracker. I will put an X on the days I met my step goals or I’ll color it in.
I work from home on week days so I don’t really plan my lunches. Usually I make a fruit & veggie snack plate, but I want to make sure I write down what I eat. So I use the plate & utensil icon from Plan to Eat in this box. I leave the rest of this box blank so I can fill in my lunch and any snacks I had.
In the last box I use the super ADORABLE meal half box stamp from Half Box Decor for the dinners I’ve planned. Under that I used more tracking stamps to track my hunger level for the day. I find this has been incredibly helpful for me. I can look and see what I ate each day that either had me feeling satisfied or not. I can also cross reference this to see if I was hungry because I was hormonal or emotionally “hungry”. Finally, I have a section where I write down the total points I ate that day. This week I used a stamp from the new set More Tabs. Each morning when I sit down to look at my planners with my coffee, I fill in this box pulling the info from my weight watchers app.
I’m LOVING the new Whimsy Weekend set for Saturday and Sunday. I use the long weekend stamp in this spot because I don’t work out on the weekends. Speaking of workouts, once again we’re pulling from the Basic Tabs and Plan Fitness sets. I use an activity icon from Plan Fitness to represent my workout for that day. These are very general because I keep an actual detailed list of my workout on my phone since I’m not hauling my planner to the gym.
I’ve been using this planner for health & fitness for a little over a month now. It has been amazing for motivation and documentation. My Sweet Stamp Shop stamps help me personalize my layout to fit my needs each week!
