July 2018ex + Fresh Start
Hey hey everyone!
Maggie here with a look at how my July Memory Planner pages are shaping up!
I can hardly even believe we’re already more than halfway through the summer…ugh.
The kids go back to school in less than a month…and I feel like we haven’t even started the fun part of the season yet!
There’s still a ton I’d like to do…and there’s really not a whole lot of time left to do it.
I feel like I just can’t keep up with the speed of the days!
One thing I am making sure to keep up with this summer, though, is my progress with the July 2018ex word: exercise.

To start my July, I first printed out the free printable that Heidi provides each month…then I punched some holes, added it to my planner & decorated the front a bit to suit my style.
I love that Heidi challenges us to think a bit outside the box when it comes to focusing on each month’s word.
Just because our July focus is “exercise” doesn’t mean we have to run to the gym, or walk 30 miles, or become cross fit masters – although if that’s what you choose to do, that’s fantastic!
I’ve decided to “exercise” my freedom to choose something other than running ourselves ragged this summer. I’m focusing on getting in at least 30 minutes of reading each day…and I’m loving it!
I’m using my printable to document how my personal challenge is progressing…
…and I’m so happy with my results so far!
I love having this little reminder, right in my planner.
It’s something I see everyday when I go to document our daily adventures, and it’s such a motivator!
Now…wanna have a quick look at my month so far?
I use my month-at-a-glance pages as a place to add extra photos…and they’re shaping up nicely so far!
Our first few weeks of the month have been BUSY…but so fun!
I love all of the little icon stickers available in Fresh Start sticker books…there’s really a little bit of something for every occasion!
I especially love looking back on my pages and seeing all of that handwriting…it really reminds me that we lead such full lives…and that makes me so happy.
So here we are…approaching the end of July…
…I’m continuing to work on my chosen exercise for the month…
…and I’m making sure to put aside a few minutes each day to get our stories told.
So far, so good.
How are you “exercising” this month?
