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.
