I've been talking a lot lately about finding my rhythm with all of my Happy Planners™ (yes, I use multiple). By 'rhythm' I mean what works daily for me to fill each planner. This post is to talk a bit about the rhythm I found with my Happy Planner™ Fitness Planner.

First, let's talk the lefthand 'notes' column. I've been using it to jot down three weekly goals, or things to remember, or to pep talk myself in a few words. I'll usually put a sticker at the top, use number stickers 1 to 3 paired with my jots, and end the column with a colorful quote sticker at the bottom.

Next, the bottom row where exercise is meant to be tracked. The open grey boxes are always a bit intimidating to me. I'm a person who needs lines. My solution has been sticky notes. Alternating, brightly colored sticky notes - most of which work better for me because they have lines or a grid, or a place for me to 'rest' my handwriting upon.

As far as the monthly pages go, I was inspired by what Michelle (@planthehappies) did in her fitness planner back in May. Michelle filled out the entire month with a healthy decision every day no matter how small. I decided to use the monthly boxes to journal how my day went, highlighting good choices with a  gold star, or highlighting workouts in yellow.
