A few weeks ago I posted about my new moleskine planner. I promised that once I got things going I'd show you how I used it. I'm still deciding on a layout so in this week 33 & 34 you will see they change a little. I started out with color coding like I usually do. However, it looked messy.... I really prefer the streamlined look of just black ink in my planner right now. [this may change later on aha]
The moleskine I purchased is the Turntable Diary/Planner. I chose to also document moments in it as well as using it for planning. To separate the two, I use a dashed line around my journaling entries. I also knew I wanted to incorporate a motivational quote, so I put it on what I knew would be my least busy day. I keep track of my work schedule as well as Jess's. I like having it in the same place across the board, and have kept it near each date.
Week 34 was a straight up DISASTER. I have had some health issues bringing me down this month, and this particular week seriously kicked my ass. It was probably the most unproductive week I've had all year long. It took everything in me to get of the couch each day. So you will see A LOT of items moved and deferred because I just couldn't get the momentum to do them.
Whew was this a bad week to start scheduling my flylady in my planner... I don't think I accomplished one task. I drew a little goofy elephant because some times I just need to take up space lol. I have another quote on this week, "Stay Pretty. Be Educated. Dress Well. Get Money." Too bad such a fun motivational quote was wasted on a crappy week. Meh. At the bottom of each day I tried documenting what time I woke up, how much water I drank, and what time I went to bed. It was pretty pointless since I slept pretty much all day all week anyway... Seriously guys, it was a bad week.
I love love decorated planner pages. I started this one out that way, with color coding and washi tape. There was something about it that made my moleskine feel trashy. I can't explain it... I just think the all black ink really looks sharp. I do have plans to get some stamps which I will use with black ink. I'll list below what I used for my planning.
