I’ve become one of the many addicted to pinterest.com The other day I saw a great way to organize your day. The original idea can be found at lifes-a-journal . I liked hers, but had a few changes I wanted to make to fit my lifestyle and needs. I decided to make my own and see if I liked using it. So far so good.
After the kidney stone experience last year, I decided to keep the Hydrate section. I just cross them off as I go.
I have had a challenge writing in my journal. I’ve never been a regular at it, so I added a section for that. My hope is that with a small area to write, I will not feel like I have to make up for all the days I haven’t written. I just review that day and write a few things. Sometimes it looks more like a list and other days it has my thoughts and feelings. Either way is good.
My daily list includes: Scripture Study, 10 minute pick-up in each room, Exercise and Tracking my food intake.
My list of things to-do varies day by day, so it is blank and I fill it in. I just check them off as they are completed.
Notes are for me to write things like appointments, kids day off of school, holidays or funny things the kids say.
I don’t remember where the quote at the bottom originally came from. I just like it and it helps me keep perspective on hard days.
I created my daily list in Excel and saved it as a PDF. I uploaded it to Google docs, so you can print it off too :) I decided to print off enough pages for a year and have them spiral bound at the copy store. I think you could print on both sides if you used heavy enough paper. I plan to bind mine along the top edge rather than the side. I think it will be fun to look back on and see a glimpse of my days as time goes on. Click HERE for the Google docs link.
UPDATE*** A friend requested a spot to list menu items. So I’ve added a section to the master list. It looks like this and you can print it HERE. You can still choose the other format by clicking on the link above.Pin It Now!
