Somebody Stop Me…

…I know you won’t. But I had to ask anyway. Yer all a bunch of enablers ; )

Anyway, as you remember, I have gone wild (heh, Zoe Gone Wild…sounds like another video!) and ordered a “deep pink” personal Domino which will be my Fit-ofax. Filo-fit? Whatever…

Well, it came today and HOLY WOW is it pink! Deep pink…sure. Also really, startlingly, effing bright pink!  Fuschia even!

I love it : )

As you may also remember, I asked for your input in how I should set this beast up.

Since I lack patience, I checked the poll results today, a measly three days later, and although the option to “use subject tabs and organize it” is winning by almost two to one, I decided in a fit of irrational Twitter envy over Franklin Covey inserts to buck the system and go with the “use monthly tabs and journal it” angle.

Which, lets face it, was the one I wanted to begin with and therefore the one I was going to do no matter how you guys voted. ‘Cause I’m a bitch that way.

Anyway, in keeping with this bizarre color-loving, suddenly girly spree I seem to be on (and also because they were on that lovely thing we planning enthusiasts call mid-year clearance) I ordered up some FC Her Point of View weekly pages  and the corresponding monthly tabs on which to do my tracking.

Um, and I also picked up some Hi Tec C’s in apple green, aqua blue, apricot orange and pure pink from my beloved JetPens. Oh, and a neat bright orange pen/pencil case to cart ’em all around in.

This, by the way, will be my first pen/pencil case since, like, college…so I am disproportionately excited. I don’t know why. But it’s orange, so I am.

Back to the Fit-ofax (Filo-fit??), I figure I’ll keep my daily Weight Watchers food points, exercise, mood, weigh ins, progress notes, etc. on the weekly pages and big picture things like each week’s goals, weekly stats, female cycle junk (because anyone who doesn’t think that Aunt Flo interferes mightily with dieting and/or working out is either a pre-pubescent girl or a man) and the like on the monthly bits.

Clippings, motivational stuff, etc. can be punched and inserted in the corresponding weeks in which I thought they were relevant enough to cut out and stick in my book.

Other that that I think a single separate section for workouts is in order so I don’t have to flip around from week to week in the tracking section looking for the one I want.   I might not even tab it.  So there!

I’m shooting for a fun, casual, journalistic style that is functional yet not so planner-y that I tweak about it and go all OCD and make it a “system” or something that will ultimately lead me to quit using it or toss it across the room in disgust over the incessant amount of time I spend obsessing and not working out.

Stay tuned for the arrival, unveiling and set up : )

    Yay! Personally, I like the fit-ofax better than Filo-fit. I too am looking forward to pictures and information once it’s all set up and ready to go! Yay!

    oh man, I try really hard to not get ocd. Its why I have a hard time writing in a brand new notebook…. I made a promise I wouldn’t try and be perfect with my filofax no matter how much I hate my handwriting that day or in some other way ‘wreck’ my filofax 🙂

    @tracy: i totally feel ya. there was a time when i mostly wrote in my planner AFTER stuff happened, so i wouldn’t have to scribble or use white out. i have also been known to purchase new diary pages and re-copy if i decided, say, mid year to change pen colors. yeah. so i’m with you on making a concerted effort to not obsess over a perfect planner! go imperfection : )
