This is the undated Life and apples, the wellness planner. It’s a daily motivational journal for healthy living and it says active life, balanced eating and happiness. This is something that is available on Amazon. I will leave a link below for you guys.
I am currently looking on my Amazon and it is retailing for $ 24.97. I just wanted to let you all know that and then there’s some information on the back as well. So it says the wellness planner, a daily planner and journal for staying healthy, motivated and inspired. It helps you focus on your diet and fitness goals, eat healthy and plan meals, lead an active lifestyle and stay fit, build and maintain positive habits, feel accomplished and happier, and then down here it has 240 pages, it’s a 90 day layout or it’s a 90 day Daily layout, I should say: there’s meal planning, a food journal, gratitude, fitness schedule, goals, weekly review, a habit, tracker and inspirational quotes, so their website is life and apples.
Calm, but, like I said you can get it on Amazon as well. First things: first, there is this elastic band closure, which I do like for these kind of more like softer planners, and let’s pull this guy off here all right here we go. Let’s take take it off. Oh it’s naked now so anyway, on the front, it is like a nice kind of a know like a faux leather and it’s going to be kind of hard to see, but maybe you can see it, but there is like a little embossed Apple on the front.
The spine is just like a softer leather as well, and then the back is just plain but embossed on the bottom. It says life and apples with a little apple on that as well. There is a little pen loop, which is really nice. So, let’s open this bad boy up and it does feel nice. It’s not like a gritty feeling. It’s like a very smooth feeling, even though there’s definitely like you know some. It looks like there’s texture to it, but there’s not, but I don’t know I don’t know.
I don’t mind it so anyway, there’s a little card in there that says, download your free, healthy living, ebooks and printables at life and apples, calm, a /pages, a slash going to sand. It looks like you can sign up to get a 10 % off coupon on your next order. If you sign up there, that’s cool alright, so first impression of opening it. I hadn’t opened it yet. The paper feels nice. It feels thick, but it’s like the front page, so it might feel a little different.
So in the front it just says life and apples, the wellness planner undated, alright. So oh, this is like stitch bound. Oh that’s cool! Alright, so it has different sections. So section 1 is mind, set concepts and guidelines how to use this planner a self-fulfilling promise. Section 2 is a daily planner and weekly project progress. I can’t talk today here: goals daily planner wellness, no daily wellness planner.
I told you guys. I can’t talk today. Weekly progress review and then section 3 is your progress and inspiration, a review, exciting things ahead and notes cool alright. So here is just some information on mindset. I’m not going to read this whole thing because I want to get through this a little faster for you guys, so you can kind of see the inside of this a little bit. So I think it’s just like about talking about what this planner is.
All about is what it kind of looks like of like how to set a short-term goal daily motivation. Things like that, so yeah, oh and then there’s like a little thing of like how to use this planner cool. So it talks about like gratitude affirmation active day. Today’s meal planning a wellness summary and all that good stuff. Alright, so, oh you have to make a promise to yourself. Apparently, when you have this planner all right cool.
Well, let’s make a promise y’all, so the promise to myself the day and date. I will use this wellness planner to create a lasting positive change in my health and wellness, and then you know why basically, but why you want to change it and then you’re prepared to change and commit and then sign it, alright. Okay, this has a lot of structure to it. So if you guys know me in any of my planner styles, I really don’t like a lot of structure, but I think this would be great for somebody that likes a lot of structure, especially if they’re trying to get motivated with meal planning meal.
Prepping being active things like that, so I mean I haven’t looked through the rest of it, but I can just already kind of tell that it’s going to be a lot of structure. So anyway, you got my goals. So then you can put in a bunch of goals, so your goal and you want to achieve them by and then the action steps and there’s three lines with little faint checkboxes. And it looks like there’s five on this page and then now we are into the daily planner okay.
So it’s one day on two pages, so you have the day end date, which it’s undated. So you can start this at any time. You write what you’re grateful for your daily affirmation your active day. It says, exercise workouts and opportunities to keep active today, and it’s got seven different lines with checks and then notes. It says today’s priorities to do special events, etc, and seven category or seven lines as well with little checks.
So I mean clearly you would use this for like food and activity tracking. But if you had like two dues like hey, I need to run to the store. I need to go grocery shopping or I need to like pick up the dry-cleaning like you could put that in here. It looks like and then down at the bottom. It says Universal wellness elements, are you getting enough question mark and it says: Erin, sunlight, water and nutrients, joy and fun, and sleep sleep is something that I definitely struggle with.
I don’t know if you guys struggle with it out there, but I definitely struggle with sleep water. I don’t struggle with that at all. Alright, so over into the right hand, side over here it says today’s meal plan and then it has breakfast and some lines. Lunch dinner and snacks, so you can either plan that ahead or you can even just write it in as it happens, this is small enough that it would definitely fit and I think, most people’s purses.
Let me see if I can find the size on the interwebs here all right, so this is five and a half inches by eight inches. So yeah I mean you could definitely throw this in your bag or your work bag or keep it on your desk at work or just keep it at home too. I mean it’s definitely small enough where it could suit those needs, and it says on the scale of one to five. How was today and how well did you follow the plan and it’s one through five and it just says what could be improved tomorrow? Then it’s got like a little quote from George Eliot and says the strongest principle of growth lies in the human choice.
Isn’t that the truth? Gosh, it’s getting it’s getting deep on the FDA Channel today, all right and so day and date all over again – and I believe hmm, let’s see here all right, so you’ve got a whole week and then you have a weekly review. So you have your day and date, success and wins. Oh and all the days are the same like the day and date and then like your today’s meal plan. All of those are the same throughout the seven days.
So your weekly review, you put the day and the date successes and wins, and so celebrate your wins. What were some of the motivating moments, people and things that helped you have a healthier week and then you have three lines to write about that and it says: needs improvement. How can you make next week a healthier one, any pitfalls to avoid and it’s got three lines? The next section is insight and lessons.
What have you learned about yourself this week and three more lines and then over here is the weekly progress tracking and it says, track your daily bi-weekly and weekly healthy habits. So it’s got three sections here and then Monday through Sunday, so you can either check that off or you know, if there’s a certain amount of ounces of water or something like that, you could do that as well and then over here it says, track your progress Towards your goals, use parameters like weight, number of weekly, workouts, new habits, etc, and it says, parameter this week.
My goal that’d be nice. If you’re trying to fluctuate your weight or something like that and then weekly notes, it’s got a bunch of lines and some checkboxes as well all right. So then, we’re back into the week again all right, and then you got another weekly, okay, let’s kind of see what else is going on. I kind of like that. This is stitch because it like lays like it lays flat. Like I don’t know, if you guys can see that, but it does lay flat it’s hard to see because I like tipping it up, but it does lay flat which is kind of nice.
It does have these as well these little ribbons Wow words are hard today. So you could ideally have one of them for your day and then one of them for your week, especially if you’re going to do one of those like weekly habit, trackers or their parameters or something so yeah. But let me find, if there’s anything else going on in this planet, that just might be it I’m not really sure. So, let’s take a peek here and then I’ll talk about paper quality in just a moment.
Okay looks like that’s all the same. Oh, oh there’s different pages hold on hold on hold on okay, so in the back okay. So this is, after all, of the 90 days, so in the back, it has review Congrats on your commitment to a healthier life, write down the accomplishments that you’re most proud of in detail. What you need to continue and improve on your journey to wellness. It says I accomplished and says: look back at your goals and notice the progress you’ve made, what are your big list accomplishments and you can write them down and says I’m committed and then exciting things the head.
Oh and then you’ve got a bunch of notes. Pages. Very cool, alright, so we’ve got 3 1 or 1 2 3 4 line notes pages and then you’ve got 1, 2, 3 3 normal pages that are blank. And then this one’s like more of a Oh 5 normal pages and then this one’s one more like a it’s, not cardstock, but it’s like thick, oh and then in the back, there’s a little pocket. So you can put you know like a something in there.
Some secrets or something so yeah, so this is the planner yeah. So the paper/quality feels pretty nice. It is a little thinner than like the Erin Condren. If you guys readed my regular planning stuff, I use an Erin Condren, it’s a little bit thinner than that, and I can tell by the ink saturation underneath as well. I don’t have time to do a pen test today, I’m kind of in the middle of doing a whole bunch of things in my home right now.
So I don’t have time to do that today, but I feel like any like regular, like ballpoint, not ballpoint, but yeah a ballpoint pen or like a gel pen would probably be really nice with this. Like I said before, there is a ton of structure with this planner like a lattice structure with this planner. So if that’s something that you’re really seeking, I think that this might be a really good. I for you, if you really want to get motivated with your food, and your fitness and tracking things like this might be a good one for you.
I know that some people have a real trouble with planners that don’t have any structure at all. I kind of thrive on minimal structure, which is probably why I’ve never gotten into bullet journaling, because there’s like no structure with that. So I do like my Erin Condren hourly, because it just gives me hours and I can put in what I want to put in. That’s like great for me, but any more structure than that.
I don’t like so this isn’t something that I would definitely use. However, I can see the value in it for sure, especially if you’re someone that just needs to have a question posed and then write it in so like having a category to say, hey. I am grateful for this, and these are my notes – and this is my lunch plan like that – I can totally understand how that works really well for some people, so I think the planner is pretty cool.
I actually really like the size of it just for portability, because if I were to use it, I would want to take this on the go and grab my pen and take it. You know to the office or take it to visit friends or whatever and like really keep track of stuff, because if that’s what this planner is all about with tracking things, it’s just something that I would definitely want to be portable, which it is it’s quite light.
As well, it’s really nice, it’s not bulky, it’s very thin, so I do like that that it would fit in in most purses.
