On Mondays I like to take a look at last week’s spread in my notebook. I’m back into my Hobonichi Weeks and tracking my writing time, habits, daily/weekly tasks, and meals. Meal tracking is new for me and I’m doing it because I’m slowly working towards a more plant based diet. Please read more to find out how!
You might remember that last week I switched over to a blank notebook to play with the layout and function of my notebook. I liked the blank notebook, but I realized that I could still use my Weeks and create nearly the exact same layout. The benefit of using the Weeks is that it’s already dated (I always make mistakes when filling out dates in blank notebooks) and it tracks the week number for me, which has been vital for my blogging practices over the last year. So I think I will order a new Weeks notebook for 2021 instead of using a blank travelers insert. Besides, I have this really nice cover that I ordered this year and it was a little bit pricey. I’d hate to stick it on a shelf somewhere!
This is the second week that I’ve tracked my daily meals. There are no restrictions in place yet — I’m moving super slowly as I continue to decide my end goal. So I’m just getting into the habit of tracking with no expectations yet.
My daily journaling streak continues – today’s entry marks 162 days! And happily – my daily step streak has ended. Last Friday I was super sleepy and went to bed early with 7,000+ steps. It’s a relief to see that one end and know that the pressure has been lifted. I’ve decided that I will no longer track my steps in my weekly planner because I’ve built a pretty good habit of getting lots of steps every day. So goodbye to that one! Whew!
The last piece of notebooks news for today is that I’ve finished copying over all of my 2020 Hobonichi Weeks daily entries into my 5 year memory book! Now I’m writing each daily entry into this memory book instead of my Weeks notebook and I’m so excited for 2021 to come around so that I can start to see my entries stack up! This notebook requires patience.
I’d like to invite you to share a recent blog post about your own notebooks. This is meant to be an opportunity to think more deeply about the role that journaling plays in your life and to share a bit of encouragement and inspiration with others. Feel free to click the link below to share!
