My 2018 Bullet Journal (Happy New Year!)

My 2018 Bullet Journal (Happy New Year!)

Hey guys! I am very happy to wish all of you not only a Happy Monday (haha), but a Happy New Year, as well! ❤ I’m so happy that 2018 is here. I am determined to make this an absolutely beautiful year, full of wonderful new experiences, memories and adventures!

Today, I am sharings with you my very first bullet journal!

This post was inspired by my lovely blogging friend, Oxria!

You may recognize this lovely notebook from a post I did a few months ago, when I mentioned that I had started journaling again. Well, I didn’t end up writing much in it in over that amount of time, so I got rid of the few entries it contained and decided to use it instead as my bullet journal!

The first page I have to share with you is of the full 2018 12-month calendar I spent a good 30 minutes writing last week, haha!

I love how it turned out, even though the margins aren’t perfect. ah, well. I’ll learn in time! Having a mini year calendar near the beginning of my journal will be a helpful reference for me.

Next, I have a place to keep track of how many miles I walk throughout January and February!

Back in mid-December, I began my health and fitness journey, which I have actually yet to mention on my blog! This life change has mainly consisted of sticking to serving sizes, getting a bit less dessert than I used to (*laughs, then sighs*), power-walking, stretching, and doing ab exercises. I hope to lose a few pounds and track that progress, as well. Keeping up with these awesome new habits in my bullet journal is something I’m excited about doing this year!

Third, I will be aiming to read 52 books in 2018, so I made a page for it!

On my phone and throughout these journal pages, I’m writing down books I plan to get around to reading this year. As you can see, my goal is to read 52 books this year, which I will totally be able to accomplish! I’ve missed the joy of reading for a long time, and one of my main focuses for 2018 is to read more. It’s simple, broad, and something I love to do, and I intend to read that many books over these next twelve months. ❤

This next page is a really cool one (and I thought of the idea myself, lol). I’m going to keep up with language learning review/new words here!

Isn’t this cool? And it will totally encourage me to continue learning new words and re-memorizing old ones! (I am in the process of learning three different languages, but not at the same time. Spanish is the main one, then I occasionally review basic French and Portuguese, as well.)

Next, you can see my weight loss graph!

My goal is to lose about eight pounds from where I am now. It won’t be any more than that – it may even be a bit less, so I’m just going to see how it goes! Watching the scale go down bit by bit is worth cutting back slightly on food for. ❤

The last page I’ll be showing you today (I might do an update post when I’ve made some more pages!) is the book series I want to read!

As you can see, I totally messed up on the Anne of Green Gables book order because a website confused me, haha, but otherwise, I’m excited about reading these series! If you’ve read any of them, let me know how you liked them in the comments below. 🙂

So there you have it! This is how my first bullet journal looks. ❤ I can’t wait to use it throughout 2018.

Let me know in the comments below:

Do YOU use a bullet journal?

  1. Very cool bullet journal Maggie! I’m also trying to get myself more organized this year so I’ve finally taken the dive and gotten myself a Japanese planner called a Hobonichi Techo. So far, I’m using it to pan out blog posts, and take note of my daily accomplishments. Best of luck on all your goals, and as someone who’s also trying to lose more weight and stay healthy, you go girl!

  2. This is really cool! I also have a bullet journal which I try to use every month. I really love your idea on the languages page – I’m currently learning Spanish so hola! I’ve done a couple of posts about my bullet journal and was wondering whether you could check them out quickly and let me know what you think? Thank you 🙂 x
