Sweet Stamp Shop: I'm on the Sweet Stamp Shop blog today sharing my Health & Fitness Planner! You can view the post below, or go check out the SSS Blog!
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 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!
