Organizing Your THM Book and Notebook

As I mentioned Β last Tuesday, I am loving the Trim Healthy Mama plan. And later on I want to share with you why I love it, but today I am going to just share with you how I organized my book and created a binder for all my favorite recipes from the book and online THM geniuses.

THM Binder and Organizing

This amazing book is a really big book. And it is full of useful information, recipes and even excercises. So, how in the world are you going to flip to a certain section quickly? Well, you can…if you have your book organized and tabbed.

The different sections I have tabbed are: “(S)atisfying Explained”, “(E)nergizing Explained”, Breakfasts, Breads, Lunch, Supper, Dessert, Snacks and Veggies so I can find certain recipes quickly and easily. Or, if I want to find a new breakfast idea, I know where to go. πŸ™‚

Then, for my notebook- I bought a pretty one for about $5 from Walmart and just wrote THM on the front with a sharpie. Β Of course, you don’t have to do that….I’m just weird. Anyway, I got page dividers that came with a “table of contents” page for the front. So I made different sections: breakfast, lunch, supper, tips, snacks, breads, desserts, meal plans, drinks and my favorite THM bloggers/websites for future recipes.

Then, in each section, I fill them up. πŸ™‚ Sometimes I print off recipes from blogs/websites, then hand write other recipes onto that page, or if I came up with it, am copying it from the book, or tweaking a family recipe- I write it onto lined paper. I put those pages in page protectors, because, as you see in the photo above, I tend to spill things on paper and ruin it if it’s not protected….ahem.

Do you do the THM plan? How do you keep your recipes organized and protected?

Sincerely,

  2. Hannah, I look forward to following your journey, as I’m needing some inspiration to drop 25 lbs, and I just currently don’t have it! I’ve heard of this program before, but may need a refresher, so I’ll look back through your posts. I wish you the best with your health-related goals!
