After falling out of love with my bullet journal last year I was finally ready to jump back in for 2019.
For inspiration I treated myself to a brand new bullet journal. Which I now realise I didn’t take a photo of. Oh well. It’s red. Use your imagination. Or look at it here.
Last year I found that even when I tried to make my spreads super minimal it still didn’t make me want to fill it in any more than when I recorded every little thing. So I decided to find an in between. Here it is.
I had some cute stickers I wanted to use!
I love making Year at a Glance spreads and this one was no different. This time I used some skinny washi tape to mark out different things like holidays etc. Pretty!
Of course I had to display my 19 for 2019. I’ve even managed to tick one of them off already!
Topher and I both love our food and the food scene in Manchester is great, but we’re always stumped on where to go. So a restaurants to try list was a must for this bullet journal. I also added in my usual running to do list for general.
My next couple of pages I dedicated to targets. Firstly my target weight tracker. As I mentioned in my 19 for 2019 post, I want to get to my happy weight this year and stay there. My goal is to get to it or as close as I can to it by the time I go to Japan. Firstly because a scary nurse told me to or she’ll switch my meds and secondly because I want at least some hope of being able to buy something from Harajuku that will fit.
The second page is for savings for Japan. We’re a little behind savings as we borrowed some for some super cheap flights for another big trip this year but we’ll get there. I definitely borrowed this design from my last bullet journal.
I want to actually keep track of the books and films I consume this year so plan on keeping this spread up to date. The book one I just roughly sketched out and will make it prettier as I go along. And the films one needs my film strip washi tape adding to it and it will look way better.
And now for the monthly spread. Unlike previous bullet journals, I’ve tried out doing a double page spread instead of stretching it across a few pages. I’ve included spaces for key dates, my goals, memories, trackers for specific goals (yeah not doing so well on a couple of those so far!), steps and a motivational quote. I like the way it looks and will probably continue sticking to a double page – though I may switch up the layout itself in future months.
Another change from previous journals, I’m now doing a weekly spread across two pages instead of a day per page. I like the layout but I think I might use my skinny washi tape in future to make the lines a bit cleaner.
And that’s it. If you’re interested in other bullet journal posts I’ve written, check them out here.
