because I document everything - my Erin Condren Notebook Review

My love affair with Erin Condren is all my own doing. She doesn't compensate me in any way for my ooey-gooey love fests. The only bonus I get referral fees from any of you that order. Speaking of, if you do make an order? Follow this link and we both get $10! I've shown you guys my love for my planner here, here, and here, but today I want to show you the notebook I ordered to help me track my progress with the Precision Nutrition - Lean Eating Program.

Initially, I thought I could keep this all in my planner. I mean, one-stop-shopping right? Eh, not so much. I have so much going on in there anyway that I wanted something separate - something I didn't have to carry around with me. Enter this beauty.

The Take Note Notebook.

I added a few extra dollars to get monthly spreads in the front.

I am incredibly excited about April because this page is BEAUTIFUL. (The back of each spread is lined on each spread except the page pre-January.)

Behind the pretty page is the monthly spread. The orange is my workout schedule for PN. And then I add details in the aqua color if I changed or added anything. This is a nice spot to get an overview of my week.

You'll also notice washi tape along the side. This is so I'll be able to keep track of each month from the side as I go along. I used a fun green stripe for January.

As with the planners, the notebooks also come with sticker pages. I love these stickers. You'll see.

The first few lined pages are full of information that I got cozy with before PN even started.. The program came with some introductory emails (which you know I outlined), and those notes got fun pink striped washi.

And then notes I took out of the program binder got polka washi.

And then I get things started. I have a date sticker on the left-hand side of each page. And then I have my tasks to check off: PN Lesson, 5-minute action (currently 3 Sun Salutations), LE workout, training plan, 8 cups of water, and food journal.

I cannot get over how happy and motivated I feel when I see this.

I plan on repeating this through the year. I'll use different washi on the edges for each month. And I don't always expect each week to line up exactly front-and-back, but I'll take it when I get it.

The back has these pretty blank pages. I'm not sure what I'll do with them yet.

And then a double-sided pocket page and a plastic sleeve.

I just love this little notebook. I love the potential. I love the excitement. I just love it.

So how do you keep track of your goals?
