Weight loss & dieting in my new Saffiano! / Saffiano Unboxing - Filofax Friday - Week 7

This week I have a different video and post for Filofax Friday. I am giving you a break from the informative type videos so that you have time to catch up on the homework set and for evaluation as I know it has been a lot to take in and process, I am still working on it along with you, so I know!

In week 4 of Filofax Friday, I talked about visual motivation and using stimulus to keep you motivated in order to use your planner. Well I am practising just that. I really want to and need to get a grip of my weight. I was doing so well up until the middle of December when it all went to pot. Christmas is a bad bad time, I just want to eat and eat and the truth be told I have really struggled to get a grip again and take control of what I am shovelling into my mouth. That I am really struggling to get up in the mornings, these cold dark mornings and do some exercise. It is my birthday on the 25th of this month and I thought I would treat myself to an early birthday present which also coincides with the way I have decided to motivate myself. You guessed it right, I purchased myself another Filofax. Yeah my husband rolled his eyes too until I explained myself!

So I thought I would do an unboxing video when she arrived. I love looking at filofaxes and I know you fellow planner addicts do too. I really wanted a Malden but I really couldn't justify the price tag that goes with the beauty of the leather. The trouble when you buy online is you can't get a good feel for the Filofax so seeing what it looks like in a video is a great help I find. Here is my unboxing and first impressions...

I will do another video sometime in the near future showing you how I have customised this little beauty and how I have set her up. If you follow me on instagram you will have already seen some sneaky pics of what I have going on! Do stay tuned for the set up video as when I do it, there will also be a giveaway from a collab with a wonderful lady who makes the cutest planner charms - I know you are going to want to win one of those for sure!

So here is just a sneaky peak of some of the things you can expect to see in my Saffiano...

My diet & fitness inserts in my etsy store!
Next Week Next week I am not sure whether to show you my set up and do the giveaway or to go back to a more informative video. If you have an opinion or preference then please do let me know!
Finally... Thank you for watching / reading folks and enjoy your planning.
Remember your planner will only work for you and help keep you organised and on track if you use it.
