Fitness Tracking Calendars - January and February

Hello, everyone!  This is my first post of the year!  Happy 2021!  Let's hope it's a lot better than 2020!  

One of my goals this year is to be more consistent with my walking and other activities, so I creative monthly calendars to inspire me!  I aim for 30 minutes a day when I'm feeling up to it.  I enjoy walking and qigong, and this year I'd like to incorporate some light hand-weights.  Previously I would track my activities on a wall calendar, but my new calendar pages are so much cuter!   Today I'm sharing my January and February calendar pages.  

A few days ago I won a prize from Imagine That Digistamp (thank you, Kris!), and I chose iChihuahua.  I could not resist the cuteness of these dogs, and they inspired me to create my calendar pages!  On my calendar I used the two pre-coloured images, plus one of the sentiments (top right).  I added the images digitally and printed on cream cardstock. The second sentiment is a freebie from Ginger's House, and I found the free printable calendar at  I changed the colour of the calendar to teal in Microsoft Word.  The size of my calendar page is 8 1/2 x 11 inches so there's plenty of room to write.

Below is my February calendar featuring an adorable set from Beccy's Place called Poultry in Motion.  These chickens are so much fun!  The jpg images were not transparent so I printed them and fussy-cut so I could adhere them to the calendar.  I was able to add the sentiment (top right) digitally.  The sentiment at the bottom is a freebie from Ginger's House, and I found the free printable calendar at  Again I changed the colour of the calendar in Microsoft Word (this one, blue) and then printed on cream cardstock.

I love your Fitness Tracking Calendars, Kitty. What a great idea. xx

Kris said...

HA!! I knew you'd create something awesome with your prize! What a fabby idea Kitty! Good luck with your goals for 2021 - and YES, here's to a better year *Ü*

PS... I got a new dog during COVID-19 last year - one that is bigger and requires more exercise, so she forces me to take her to the park every day. HA! Makes the exercise thing less of a chore and more fun. Maybe your kitties need to explore with you on the other end of a leash?? Heehee. Thanks for linking up to my new Customer Gallery!

I'm very impressed with your calendars Kitty, and also with your commitment to exercise. I love that you've added the fun images and sentiments, they're sure to keep you feeling motivated. Good luck with your goals!

Barbara Godden said...

Great idea, of course I had to look up what Qigong was, looks very interesting there is even a youtube one for seniors. (for me not you) I like the idea of tracking fitness, walking is wonderful exercise. I love the chickens so funny and cute as well as the "ankle biters" they are adorable intheri exercise gear. I have a journal but much easier if you can have something visible. Much sturdier on cardstock as well. fab. job.

These are gorgeous Kitty. It would be a shame to write on them. Especially with my scrawl. lol!!

Alice (scrAPpamondo) said...

Such fabulous idea, Kitty!!! So cute and fun too!! Great you have your own calendar and the critters added make it very fun and personalized! The Chihuahua are delicious and the chickens make me giggle! How fun!
