FREEBIE: February 2017 Calendar + Self Care Tips!

Happy February!  Download this FREE printable calendar page, start planning your month [ Letter Size + A5 Size ] and keep reading for this month's theme!
 I think I'm going to make this month's theme all about remembering to love myself and practicing more self care on a daily basis.  It's so easy to forget to take care of yourself when you're busy planning, goal setting and being productive!

Don't Forget to LOVE Yourself!

1. Make it a goal to set time aside each day to do something you enjoy or that makes you feel good.  

Remember, you can do more than one thing!  Reading, meditating, taking baths, exercise or stretching, or maybe spending time on Pinterest.  Whatever floats your boat or brightens your day.

2. Take care of your appearance.

I'm all for the no makeup, cozy look, but things can get out of control.  If you're someone who is forced to leave the house most days for work, school or other responsibilities then you likely don't have much choice in the matter.  Still, it's good to establish routines to help you keep on top of things.

Schedule it if you have to!  For example, I think I need to find a shaving sticker for my planner and schedule shaving days, because it is so easy to skip it during the winter.  Like I said, things get out of control...

3. You will be able to take better care of others (kids, significant other, fur babies, students...) if you are healthy and happy.  

It may be hard to take that time for yourself, but, in the end, you'll be a better you.  A better you can do a lot more than a tired, crabby you.  Tired, crabby me wants to have a pizza pity party and watch movies all day in my fuzzy socks.
You can use this FREE Calendar to schedule in some "ME TIME" this month!  This is a great time to remind yourself of any goals you made for the year and make sure you're sticking to them.  

Didn't make any?  It's not to late to set some for the rest of the year!

Taking care of yourself and improving your mood will help you be more productive and accomplish all the goals you have for yourself!

Let me know if you enjoy Freebies like these and if you'd like to see another calendar next month!  Do you like the single page format or would you prefer a 2-page spread?

FREE 2017 Year On One Page Calendar + Goal Setting

Happy 2017!  The new year is a great time to think ahead and plan for the months ahead.  Whether it's business goals, fitness goals, home improvement projects- it's better to get a jump start and be ahead of the game!

Add this FREE 2017 Year on One Page printable to your planner and start planning
Download in Letter Size or A5 Size!

It's so easy to get behind and put things off, but I really want to make 2017 a year of productivity and success in all areas of my life.  Let's make 2017 a great year by using this month to plan, set goals and get things done!

Quick Tips: Preparing yourself for a new year.

1.  Plan early. 

Why put it off?  When you plan on the fly or last minute it's usually a mess and you're not as likely to stick with a sloppy plan.  You didn't put a lot of thought or time into it.  You didn't sit down and really visualize yourself achieving these goals.

Make planning and goal setting a priority.  Go ahead and schedule planning sessions with yourself!

2.  Treat your goals as if they're definite plans rather than a wish list.

You deserve to achieve your goals!  If you don't believe you can achieve your goals then you won't.  Have faith that you can make it happen!

Create a solid plan ahead of time that's well thought out and give it 100%.

3.  Prepare for setbacks.

They're definitely going to happen!  Plan for bumps in the road and don't get discouraged.

Planning in advance can allow you a little extra time to make adjustments.

Printable Fitness Planner [Letter Size + A5!]

Happy New Year!  Start this year off right by creating a plan to achieve your health and fitness goals. This printable Fitness Planner is the perfect tool to help you get started!
This colorful planner comes with files for both Letter Size and A5.  If you need another size you can always resize pages using your printer settings.  Pages are in order and ready for 2-sided printing.  As always, I suggest looking over your files for download errors before printing and also printing in small groups to avoid wasting paper and ink.
Now let's get into the contents of the planner!  Here's a look at the index page-

Covers + Extras

I've included fun polka dot divider pages to keep things bright and cheery.  These pages are colorful, but easy on your printer ink.  There are 6 sections in total and matching divider tabs are also included.  You will need to cut and assemble the tabs using these easy instructions.

1. Goals

Set some goals for health, nutrition and fitness using this fun goal setting page!
There are 9 spaces and this section also includes lined pages for you to write out your goals in more detail.

2. Plan

Create a plan using these lined pages.
Write out your meal plan, workout plan, changes you would like to make, bad habits you need to break- anything you want!

3. Motivation

What is your motivation for starting this plan?
You can also include your own pages in this section.  You can create a vision board photo collage, print it out and add it to your planner!

4. Weekly

Time to get started!
There are 12 weeks of pages setup in order already and I've included a One Week Easy Fill file so you can easily print out additional weeks and add them to your planner.  Remember- you can print extras of any page you like and you don't need to print the whole planner at once if you would rather print a little at a time!
Each week starts with a weekly planning page to write out your goals, schedule and any notes you need to make.
There is a Weekly Meal Log at the beginning of each week.  You can fill in the dates in the white boxes under each day and either plan meals in advance or log as you go.  There's also a hydration tracker for each day.  I usually make each water bottle = 1 liter and try to drink 4 liters a day.
There is a Fitness Log for each day of the week.  Record your strength training, exercises, cardio and make notes.  If you, for example, go to a fitness class that day you can write that into the notes section and record the duration and intensity under the cardio section.

5. Progress

This progress chart will help you track physical changes!
This chart includes weight, body fat, measurements, pant/shirt size and weekly spaces to record the date.  Measure as often as you like!  I use a sewing tape measure (because they're about $1 and much cheaper than a tape specifically for body measurements) that I got in the craft section at Walmart.  

Sometimes the scale doesn't reflect the changes you're making and you can even gain weight as you gain muscle.  Body measurements are typically a more reliable way to track, but keep in mind that measurements will fluctuate just like your weight.  Are you bloated?  Make a note at the bottom of the page!

6. Notes & Ideas

I always have to include a notes section!
You can use this section to record any ideas you have or future plans!  Odds are you're going to have things you want to remember or things you need to change for your next fitness plan.

So what do you think?  

This planner is available as an instant download so you can get started planning right away.
