Emilia from Personal Planner contacted me at the end of 2017, asking if I would like to give one of their planners a try. Of course I was super excited and accepted the offer. I love developing planning systems for myself, and I thought this would be the perfect planner to use for my home life (dinners, sports, appointments, work schedules…)
I also started my first bullet journal a few months ago, and quickly realized that I can fit all of my work and home life calendars in there. Now I had to figure out what to do with this beautiful planner! Aha, a fitness tracker! This planner would be perfect for my workout and meal journal…wrong 🙁 If you scroll to the end of this post, you can watch a more detailed video on why I won’t be using this planner as a fitness tracker. As a matter of fact, I’m not sure what to do with it now. Any ideas?
I LOVE this cover! It’s my favorite part of the planner. They have plenty of templates to chose from, but I wanted to create my own in Photoshop. These are a few of my favorite pictures from 2017.
The quote I chose for my cover page 🙂
Using the monthly section was a fail. I felt like I was just repeating what I put in the weekly calendar here. And I like boxes with lines, but unfortunately that wasn’t one of the options.
Week One – Tried out some sticker, and hated it. Week Two – Tried out using different color pens, and hated it.
I bought some stamps on Etsy. This was close, but still not making me happy.
And this is where I gave up. I wont be using this planner for my fitness journey. My bullet journal is now in charge of that!
They had options to include different layouts at the back of your notebook. I chose Year at a glance, maps and sodoku.
Here is the red strap that came with my notebook, but I decided to take it off.
Be sure to watch my video to find out more details, and why I won’t be using this planner anymore. Thanks for stopping by!
