My Husband Started a Bullet Journal

How exciting! My husband has started a Bullet Journal! I’m probably far more excited for this than I should be. It’s super cool to see how he takes the Bullet Journal concept and makes it work for him. I’ll keep this post short and to the point – but I know I had a lot of people in the Bullet Journal Junkie’s group on FaceBook asked for some photos… here we are 🙂

 This is his yearly overview spread. I really like the way he colour coded the important dates, and kept everything super simple and clean looking. He’s always so worried about having messy writing, but I don’t think he gives himself enough credit 🙂

Next up he has his future log, where he’s placed down all his important upcoming dates. I was wondering why he had two anniversaries showing on his yearly layout – turns out he wants to celebrate our wedding anniversary and our first kiss. How sweet is he?! Seriously, you don’t even know 😉

 What I thought was really cool, was the way he combined his monthly habit tracker with his monthly spread. It’s a great use of space, and saves him having to draw out two separate spreads. Smart!

This is his weekly spread, sticking to the clean and simple theme. He’s separated his appointments from his tasks, which I always think is a great idea.

This is his 6 Week Challenge spread. One thing I admire most about my husband is his ability to set a goal, create a game plan, and then follow through. He’s always inspiring me to be more and do more in this regard, and I have so much respect for how hard he works when he puts his mind to something. His 6 Week Challenge is something that I really think is a great idea. What he’s done here, is he’s set up 5 goals that he wants to achieve between Sept 11 – Oct 22.

On the left page he’s written out each of these five goals:

1. Go for walk/run 5+ Days/Week (30 total)

2. Daily stretching/mobility (42 total)

3. Save $100 from weekly budget

4. Cut out pop

5. Drink 3 water bottles/day

Then on the right hand page, he’s drawn out boxes for each of these habits/goals and will fill in one each time he completes that habit. He typically runs a challenge for the 6 weeks, and then takes a 1 week break to review his goal/progress, reflect on what he’s learned and evaluate what he wants to tackle next. From there, he would set up another 6 week challenge, and so on. I think it’s brilliant, and quite honestly is something I plan to try in the near future.

Well, that’s it! He’s only just started his bullet journal yesterday after all 🙂 I really look forward to seeing what else he does with it.

Supplies He’s Using:

Leuchtturm1917 Dot Grid A5 Blue

Erasable Pen Blue by Hobby – currency on sale for $4.50!

Helix Oxford Mathematical Instruments Set

Staedtler Triples Fineliners

Hard at work! 😉
