After just one weekend with my Bullet Journal (not even a full weekend), I have an update! I’m really excited to show off the spreads and pages I’ve added to my BuJo because I’ve never had a planner that could do all of these things before.
Here, let me take you on a tour:
Here’s my first index page. It’s not beautiful, but as you can see, it’s filling up fast!
Here’s my year-at-a-glance page that I mentioned in my last post–NOW WITH MORE COLOR! I decided to color-code the seasons (ish…) because I thought it would be of use to me later.
I blurred out the birthdays on this page for privacy reasons, but I carried the same color coding from the calendar over onto this page. I also decided to try some doodles in the header. I’m pretty terrible at drawing these days–maybe I’ll have to take part in one of the planner doodle challenges in the future!
In the tracker, I decided to add an illness line with the page number for my health tracker. I want to see if any illnesses are tied to my eating from the previous day, so I figured I could link them here.
I blurred out some information here as well, but here’s my month at a glance. Because I spend most of my weekdays doing the same thing over and over and over and over…I didn’t write that in. I only want to write things that are out of the ordinary. I hope to fill this page up soon.
My brain dump page is currently empty, but I imagine it’ll start filling up soon!
Here’s my March spread with my monthly calendar and tracker. Added some pops of color here and some more items to track.
Here is my random item shopping list. I did get my clear ruler, so that was pretty exciting to cross that one off. I also started a 2016 reading log of just books I read this year. I have another reading log that you’ll see later, but it’s specifically for my 30th birthday.
Here’s my health tracker. The idea here is to see if any issues that arise out of the ordinary correlate to items on my monthly tracker pages. I’m hoping to collect data for my next doctor’s visit (we’re working on figuring out the underlying cause of my chronic fatigue problem).
Sorry everything’s blurred out here. These are my ideas for this blog and how I’d like to see it grow in the future.
This is my BuJo ideas spread. I’m tossing ideas on here as they come to me about collections that could be added to my BuJo. I’d like to add a savings page soon because Mike and I want to take a trip to Hawaii for our 5th anniversary next summer and need to start saving up if we want to actually go.
On the left are books that I’ve purchased to read but haven’t yet. As you can see, I already have one crossed off because I devoured it as soon as I bought it on Amazon. I love to read and read fairly quickly (I take after my dad that way) and I truly enjoy digital books. I love the smell and feel of a real paper book in my hands, but I’ve found that I’ll read ebooks much more often than analog ones.
I have a kindle, the kindle app on my phone, and the kindle app on my computer so I can read from almost anywhere I am. As you can see, there’s a definite “personal/professional development” vibe going on with that list at the moment. I’m hoping to add some fiction to the list in the near future.
On the right is my “30 books before 30” page. My friend mentioned that she was going to give it a shot since she’d just turned 29 in January, and I thought it was a great idea. I decided I’d give it a try as well. Here is my list of books I’ve read from August 2015 to now. I’m already a third of the way done!
I saw many people in the BuJo community with a gratitude log and decided to start one of my own. It’s nice to write down two things I’m grateful for each day. Yes, I only have two days completed, but it’s been nice to think of good things in my life instead of just the bad.
This one’s a bit embarrassing because it means I’m putting my weight out there for the world to see, but it’s something I’m working on. I set a goal last year to lose 100 pounds by my 30th birthday. I plan to color in blocks when I reach each 10-pound mark. I’m close to coloring in my next set of 10–woo-hoo!
The “ONEDERLAND” block was actually a place where I’d messed up and drawn an extra line on the right-hand side. I decided to make the best of it and turn it into a milestone marker…and then I spelled ONEDERLAND wrong (I put ONDERLAND originally…ugh). I’ll deal with the mistake. This isn’t a page that I’ll visit daily, so it shouldn’t bother me too much.
At the beginning of 2016, Mike and I set some intentions for ourselves (not resolutions), and we intend to do get these things done this year. We also came up with a chore list so that we could stick to some sort of schedule. We’re both terrible housekeepers and it’s a miracle that our home stays as clean as it does most days of the week.
We figured we’d break tasks down into manageable chunks that could be tackled in 20-30 minutes each day with the weekend to play catch-up if needed.
So there you go! That’s my current Bullet Journal! I hope you like it. If you have any questions, comments, or just want to say hi, please feel free to do so below!
