A Glimpse into my Planner – What Happened in April

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.
planner April 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.

It's time to take a look back at what happened in April. #faithandfitness #planner #kitlife Click To Tweet

April was a really full month!

I’m not going to try to convert you into a morning person, but I can help you develop a morning routine that will get your day started a little better than it might be right now.   

For starters, a good morning begins the night before.  In fact, much of my preparation for a good day starts the prior evening.

I Eat Chocolate Everyday….And Other Confessions

It’s time to come clean about a few things.  

eat chocolate everyday

Speaking of clean, I don’t eat that way.    

I eat chocolate everyday.  Pretty much everyday anyway.   In fact, I can’t recall the last time I didn’t eat chocolate on a given day.  I often have a Hershey Kiss or two….or three…with my coffee sometime in the morning.  

I do have a sweet tooth and I’m taming it the best way that I can.  And one way is not to totally deprive it.  Allowing myself  to eat chocolate everyday helps me not go on an all out binge.
