February is almost here and I'm all set up in my Bullet Journal already! Yay!
We're almost done with the move as well, so I can't wait for the next month to come, in order to finally start working on my projects. And since I don't have as much time as before, I decided to keep the layout more simple but still have a theme for the month.
Also, there won't be any videos this month I'm afraid because all my equipment that I use for filming are already packed up 😬
So, here's how I've set up my bullet journal for the month of February:
The first page as always is the front page of the month with my little penguin calendar.
You can print and use it as normal calendar, but what I like to do is to print it on a sticker paper, cut it to size and add it straight on the page. I like to use a ruler to make sure the sticker goes on straight and that there's no bubbles..
Moving on to the next spread which is my month at a glance. As I mentioned before, I prefer the grid layout so that's what I did again.
As you can see the theme I chose for this month is inspired from Valentine's Day and it's full of hearts and different shades of pink 💕
On the right of the calendar I have a section for all the things/events I want to remember to do this month as well as for next month.
Moving on to the next page and the goals and general to-dos for the month.
I created boxes for the 4 categories - personal, family, home, and work. I usually make a list of all the goals I want to achieve during the month for each one of those categories, and I visit this page every time I do my weekly spread, to see if I can add some of those goals in that week's list of to-dos.
The next page is a spread for notes that I create every month, where I can add anything I want. One of the most functional pages of each month, for sure!
The next two pages have to do with my exercise and diet. Last year I neglected my body a lot, and I wasn't paying attention to what I was eating most of the time. Also, I skipped exercising by finding various excuses all the time... So, this year I decided to take control of my body, lose the extra kilos that piled up in 2017, and be healthier and stronger. So, after the move, there are no more excuses! 😬
On the left hand page there is an exercise log, where I'll write exactly what I do each day. This helps me to see how many days I've exercised each month and what type of exercise I did the most.
The next page has to do with my diet and it has a list with lots of meal ideas for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. I find it easier to keep up with a certain diet, if there is a list of simple and healthy options for me to choose. Pre-planning my meals for the week is a must, if I want to stay on track and lose that weight.
The last page I created is the first weekly spread of the month. I decided to use a very basic layout with no trackers or anything like that. Simply the to-dos for each day and a section for notes.
And that is one more month planned in my bullet journal. Have you finished your setup for February? What theme did you choose for this month? Let. me know in the comments below.
