March Personal Planner set up! Why do I have 2 planners??





Now, onto my Personal Planner.
Why do I have two planners??
CONFESSION--
I actually have 3, but I turned one into a wallet.
That is a post for another day, but I promise I will go through the details.

My A5 (details here, in case you missed it) is for everyday important things, my personal planner is my "Health tracker". Being diagnosed with the Alpha- Gal allergy (Read about it here), and now Hypothyroidism and Fibromyalgia I like to keep track of my daily health. I track my weight, my overall mood, my calorie intake, detailed food diary and also any exercise (hahahaha). I also note any new symptoms. I can bring this planner to my Doctor's visits and let him know exactly what happened and when. The Food diary is mostly to note anytime I have a reaction and I know not to eat that food again.

Ok, let's get started!


This planner is from a lovely Etsy shop NikkiKathryn .
I am so in love with this little planner! She even has options to monogram it! I am kicking myself for not getting it monogrammed. I mean, hello.... who am I here? I am the monogram queen.
 Here's her website- Nikki Kathryn You can join her Planner Squad and get 15% off every order AND you get updates... and it makes you special, because you are part of a squad. Right?
Follow her on Instagram ---> HERE   
I may have gotten a shout out on there... BLUSH!

Just look at her gold stamp on the pocket of the planner---

 
Alright! Onto some lovely pictures!
Let's flip through this planner...

Here's what you will see first--
  
Again with the pockets, right? I can't help it! I love stuffing my planners full! There's that Planner girl again! I love her! If you missed the post yesterday, I used a clip art kit- PLANNER GIRL from Printable Henry on Etsy. Ya'll, this kit is everything! It's hand painted. Seriously. I am in love. You have to check out her other work. I have a code for you to get 10% off---- USE  MICHELLE10 . 
If you are on the fence , let me just show you this--
           
 Here's the link-- COFFEE BREAK
I kind of have a thing for coffee cups.... so I am imagining all the things I will do with these beauties! Stickers, Bookmarks, dashboards, PAPERCLIPS!


One more-- PINK GLAM  SWOOOOON! Seriously. ALL.THE.THINGS.I.CAN.DO.WITH.THIS! 

Alright.. back to the planner!

Planner girl again. Get used to seeing her. I kind of think she's all that. ;)
I used Websters Pages Personal planner inserts for this planner too! I loved the A5 so much I knew I had to have the Personal size too!

Monthly view--


Yup, Planner girl bookmark again. lol! I made little weight scales so that I can keep a weekly update on my weight. Just so you know, it's on a steady incline. This is where I make sure to note Dr. appts, medicine refills, etc.

Look at how the bun sticks up so I can find the monthly view quickly... I love it. Buns rule.
 

 The feather tag was from the Target Dollar spot (now Bullseye Playground or something). I love these tags! I think they were meant to be gift tags, but I like to think out of the box. I scatter them throughout my planners with inspirational quotes, or Bible verses. Sometimes, flipping through my planner and reading these will give me the "pick me up" that I need.



Just like the A5 Websters Pages inserts, there is free space on the back of the month...so, I like to use this to journal or write lyrics or Bible verses. Love this divider!


Can't get enough of those Kate Spade pen clip art!
I used them as bookmarks in my personal journal too! 

Layering is my favorite thing to do. I got this hand painted water color clip art from OCTOPUSARTIS

Florals are back in a big way, and I absolutely adore this shop's floral clip art sets. There's more than florals though, check it out. SO BEAUTIFUL!



This is pretty much how I set up my weekly pages. ( I have recently added another blank sticker to track my steps each day. Walking back and forth from the bathroom to the kitchen and to the den actually do add up! lol! That means I get lots of exercise!) Yes, I filled some of it out already, and you can see my actual weight and see that on Wednesday I slept all day. I literally slept 24 hours. My thyroid hates me and the fibromyalgia doesn't like me much either. Just keeping it real. It's hard to believe that this time last year I was 100 lbs and could not gain weight. Crazy.
 

 Loving that Starbucks cup! I had to use it on my divider. See that polka dot tab sticking out? I used the notebook from the Planner girl kit again as a book mark and it sticks out far enough to mark where my Food Diary is.



 
I like to keep a few frequently used stickers in a clear pocket insert. It comes in handy and keeps me from having to go through my stickers to find them.
That pen is from Target Dollar spot too. 




 
This is how I set up my Food Diary. I keep track of the calories on my phone.


 I am gaining more than I am losing, but once I get back on track health wise I know the weight will come off. I try not to get too caught up in the numbers.

 I keep track of my monthly weight and I keep my fitness plan in here to remind me that one day I might actually use it! lol.

 
Oh gosh, this Kate Spade planner clip art just gets me every time! I love it!
So adorable! I just had to use it on a divider!



Here's another instance where I used a tag to not only mark a certain page, but the inspirational quotes are so nice to see as I plan. The tag is from Target Dollar spot. lol. How many times can I say that in one post? Lots. Believe me.

AND, we are at the end! lol. I absolutely love that the back has a pocket as well as a zippered pouch! I always need places to tuck things away in my planners and this just makes me happy!
 
Don't forget to check out my A5 planner setup and flip through.
 
Coming up very soon will be a post on how I turned a planner into my wallet AND I LOVE IT!
