The chart design is there to help you, it must not brain wash your thinking! Do not feel you have to stick to the same colour block necessarily for a whole day. Choose whatever best describes your symptoms, and gradually a pattern will emerge - YOUR pattern. By charting many indicators and general body signs you gradually become the mistress of your own fertility cycle and then, knowing where you are in it becomes as natural as knowing which day of the week it is!
