It’s time for another bujo spread! Keeping it simple this month; just some slight changes to last month’s layout, but definitely one that is working for me.
It’s been a month. Seriously.
So my Whole30 was an epic failure, but that’s ok. I realized half-way that it just wasn’t the right time. I wasn’t in the right mindset, and mindset is a HUGE part of that program. I will try again, but not right now. I’m just going to focus on eliminating the foods that make me feel sluggish, sick, or throw off my digestion. Focusing on health and feeling good, rather than restriction or program rules.
Yoga happened. Not every day, but it happened. Walking, not so much. There were migraines. Lots of them, and stretching and relaxing was my main priority.
On the upside, I finished my edits for the month! With time to spare! Yay!
Edit wordcount: 13531.
I call that a good run, so I decided to film an update video to pat myself on the back. Check it out 🙂
Goals for March:
- Finish the draft! Do it!
- Prepare for April NaNo experiment
- Try to complete 30 Days of Yoga Camp, because I really enjoyed that series and feel ready for a repeat.
I said I would do it and I have… a realistic, no tidying, no hiding peek inside my closet.
I am happy to report, that I have since gone in for another round of decluttering and sorted through the show situation, and removed some of the items that I was unlikely to wear, some seasonal pieces, pants, and one of the two cocktails dresses that I mention in the video.
Just living and learning.
Another month, another bujo spread! 🙂
My spreads keep changing, but that’s what I love about this method—the ease and adaptability. Take a peek inside my February spread, along with some reflections on last month’s spread, and an intro to my new day log (who am I kidding? It’s a diary. Long story, but one that I hope to share soon).
Keep an eye out for the promised closet tour next Friday.
I have a journaling habit. Always have, always will, it keeps me stable. Here’s my year-end journaling update 🙂
What I’m loving, what I use every day, and what I can’t live without.
It feels like years since I recorded this video, which happened before everything seemed to go out of control, but I enjoyed filming it and I still think it works.
A few thoughts on moving out, moving in, and dealing with space and all the stuff that inevitably fills it. (also, pre-haircut hair!)
I’ve been thinking about the things I buy — the things that add to my life and the things that make me cringe at the waste (mostly of space and money). I’ve been making a concerted effort to shop mindfully and really think about the things I bring into my life. Where will they fit in my home? How will they add to my state of being? Will they last or will I regret the purchase in 6 months? It’s a challenge, particularly because I have no one to answer to but myself (part of the reason I decided to document this process in the first place is to hold myself accountable). I’m learning and growing. There are some things I’ve purchased recently that I should have checked myself on, but I bought them anyway. I’ll try harder next time.
Now that I’ve rambled long enough, watch the video to learn more about the things don’t buy anymore and the things I’m working on as I move towards a more conscious lifestyle.
I read books and they were good. Flash review of Cursed Child, Imprudence, and The Scottish Prisoner. I also just finished Rosamund Hodge’s Cruel Beauty (mentioned in the video) and am experiencing serious book hangover. Check out the video for more.
This will probably be the last video in the bedroom, because the lighting is just insane.
Another week, another vlog 🙂 and no recording snafus! So thrilling.
I completed my Whole30 on Monday and it feels like such an accomplishment. I only broke the rules a couple of times (in a really silly, minimal way, which I explain in the video). Otherwise, I managed to stick to the rules, even when faced with cake, pasta, and other non-compliant foods. Yes, I lost 3.5 lbs, but I saw some serious changes in my body composition, especially around my belly. I’ve started my slow roll with legumes (documenting my reaction to foods as I make the introduction), and have only introduced a couple of added sugar foods (honey-roasted cashews and chocolate). I’m trying to eat these sparingly, as my goal is to keep the sugar monster at bay; however, it’s my birthday this month, so I will be eating cake.
More details in the video. I’m planning a second round in July.
