I’m so excited to be continuing with the next installment of the Planner Peek series! I don’t know about you, but I just LOVE being able to sneak a peek inside other people’s planners. I love to see how they use them, how they decorate them, what type of planner they use, etc. I have asked my readers to submit photos of their planners and to tell us a bit about how they use their planning system. (You can submit your planner by filling out this really short and easy form. If you’re selected, you’ll get a free copy of the digital Sweet Life Planner worth $35!)
Today’s planner is from Gordana who lives in Holland. She made her own planner in Word and had it printed. She uses it for university, work, social life, as a meal planner and food log, workout planner and workout log. She has special charts to track her progress.
First, she has a yearly calendar. She says, “This is where I look when I make appointments. Everything is first put into this calendar. Birthdays, bills due, events etc!” (I also love all the bright sticky notes she has on the other side.)
Next, she uses a monthly calendar. She says: each month starts with a goal sheet where I track all my goals. Every month I rewrite everything from the yearly calendar to the monthly calendar. In this calendar I also track things I must do. For example: cleaning, workouts, school/work stuff, reminders for my goals etc. Everything is color coordinated and written on post it flags so I can easily move things around. When I've finished something I write it in a specific color.
Next, she has weekly calendar. She says: here I use the same system as the planner pad, but adjusted for my own needs. In the columns above I write my weekly to-do list according to subject. In the columns in the middle I write my daily to do list. In the column below I write my appointments. A-tasks I give a red dot, B-tasks with a blue, and C-tasks with a green dot. In this way I always know what I MUST do first.
Next, she has a to do section. Here she keeps all her to-do lists, and she has a space to leave post its.
Then she has a menu section. She says: This consists of a meal planner (2week), food log (I write EVERYTHING I eat), nutrition tracker (a monthly summary of all the calories, protein, carbs and fat I've eaten). I normally don't use this but for my sport I have to lose weight to be able to compete again. Therefore I need to track my meals.
Next she has a workout section. She says: This consists of a workout planner (I plan everything a month in advance. After every day I write down if I've done the workout as planned. If I couldn't do it, I find another date), workout log (Here I write what I did with every workout and how it went) and stats tracker (It tracks my weight, fat% and measurements).
Wow, I’m definitely impressed with her planner and with her diligence in nutrition and working out – I could definitely use a little more of that!
