I have a really bad habit of starting something and never finishing it. I’m sure some of you know what I’m talking about.
You start a new workout plan or a diet. Or you think to yourself, “Maybe I’ll start building that treehouse for my kids.” Maybe even something as simple as, “I’ll start watching Game of Thrones from season 1 now since I’m the only one who hasn’t seen the series yet!” (The last one is something I’m totally guilty of.)
But what happens halfway through any of those feats? YA GIVE UP.
I know this because I started to watch Game of Thrones and stopped at season 1, episode2 because, well, it didn’t catch my attention. I’m sorry, but it just didn’t. And please don’t give me a laundry list of reasons why I should watch GoT because I’ll probably start it and end it after reading Reason #2.
Anyway, the point of this post is to try to get me into maintaining a habit that will stick throughout the rest of the year. You’ve read my goals. If I want to keep all those goals, I think something that will help me be successful is keeping up these habits to bring me closer to the goals.
One thing that I invested in is a Blogilates Fit Planner. If you don’t know who or what Blogilates is, it is one of my favorite fitness blogs and YouTube channels. When I first started my fitness journey and I’d be too lazy to hit the gym, I would go to YouTube and find any kind of workout videos to help me stay fit. The first one I found was a video called “Pop Pilates: Beyonce Bootylicious Bum Butt Badonkadonk Bonanza” and I was hooked. The music playing in the background was entertaining, the workout was intense but doable, and most of all, the host, Cassey Ho, talked so much that it distracted me from the pain of working out my bubble butt.
Long story short: I loved Blogilates (the brand and YouTube channel), Pop Pilates (the workout program under Blogilates), and Cassey Ho. Cassey has expanded Blogilates to more than workout videos and a fit food vlog. She opened up a merchandise shop complete with Pop Pilates clothes, yoga mats, water bottles, and yes, a fit planner. I’ve always wanted one of her fit planners, but I also always opted for cheaper planners instead.
Well, this year, I got what I wanted because I am an independent woman who don’t need no man to buy her things. I bought it myself. So I introduce to you, my 2018 Rose Gold Fit Planner by Blogilates…which is now sold out. 🙂
Here is how it glistens. Look at that rose gold!
Going from the Weekly to the Daily pages.
What I also like about this planner is that it comes with a two-sided pocket page. I keep an index card with my goals (from my blog post) and stickers to use for my diary. Such a pretty planner.
All in all, this Fit Planner is aesthetically pleasing. I love the sections for the beginning and the end of the year and the month. I’m sure this will be the biggest tool to help me maintain my health/fitness goals. Well, I mean, besides the actual exercise and diet. But I’ll do a monthly update and share my end-of-month recaps with you in future posts.
The only thing I wish for is more notes pages to write wandering thoughts and more To-Dos. But that is all right because I have other notebooks for that.
I 100% would recommend you get your hands on one next year if you’re interested.
