A Glimpse Into My Planner – What Happened in August

I got a new planner this year and so I started a series that I’m titling “A Glimpse Into My Planner”.
Each month* I’m giving you a glimpse of what’s been happening, because I now keep EVERYTHING in this planner since there is a space for EVERYTHING.

August 2018 recap

Just to recap:

Each day not only has lines for my to do list, it also has 3 sections that I love:  

  • The Big 3 – This helps me prioritize.  What 3 things MUST I get done today?
  • Wellness – Daily workouts.
  • Gratitude – 3 things for which I’m grateful on that given day.

I also make note of things the Lord shows me during my daily quiet time.  

This new planner has reduced my desk by 3 books, and I have it all in one place and I love it.  I also love going back through my month to see what worked, what didn’t, what I got done, what I still need to do and so on.

So what happened in August?

  2.  I love to workout.  Fitness is a daily part of my life and I want to help others see how it can be beneficial and enjoyable for them as well.

Scripture is full of motivation to help us see our bodies as His beautiful creation and to encourage us to take care of those bodies because they were carefully crafted just as a temple. (see 1 Corinthians 6:19-20)
