I'm addicted to superhero movies, donuts, craft beer, playing in the woods, and reading YA fiction. I'm a writer by day and a dreamer by night.

Habit Tracker

I don’t know if you noticed, but I snuck up a new graphic on the sidebar last week sometime linking to my new project: Bullet Journal Joy. I’ve really enjoyed diving into the bullet journal community lately and I’m constantly inspired with new ideas so I decided I’d channel that all in one place so as to be able to link to a website while in that community that didn’t also talk so much about running or politics or sweat. I hated having this blog on my bullet journal instagram account because I really don’t talk about bullet journaling as much here as I’d like.  I have to leave room for entries about boob sweat.

BOOB SWEAT TANGENT: My inability to remember to grease up for my weekday runs has created a situation where my boob sweat has caused so much chaffing that I now basically have an outline of my bra in discolored skin that is just permanently scarred. I AM SO SEXY.

Okay. Back to to bullet journaling. So now I have a place I write about all of the things I discover and implement! One example of a great idea is the “Habit Tracker” which is something I thought I’d share with you guys too. You basically just list out the habits you’d like to track and then make a grid for the days of the month and color them in when you’re successful.

I designed mine on the computer, something I’m trying to stop doing, but obviously you can just write it and draw the grid yourself. I think it’s a great way to track habits like meditating daily, or success at doing things like giving up sodas. I’m hoping to have all sorts of circles colored in at the end of the month!

Sunflower would like to request that I add, “Pet Teh Kitteh” somewhere on the grid.

  1. I noticed your new sidebar addition and printed the December doodle. Thank you very much for that! It is wonderful to have something to color since I am not very artistic. When I try to doodle it does not turn out very pretty.

    I saw a house cleaning/chores tracker on someone’s site (I think Boho Berry had a picture of it). It is similar to what you have started. I think I am going to try it. Maybe I’ll get the house cleaner that way!

  2. Love this! This is something I’m trying to incorporate in my BuJo. You wouldn’t happen to have a printable download for this?

    Boob sweat tangent – I find it so comforting to know I’m know alone in my boob sweat problems. ?

  3. That is stinking brilliant! I’m the kind of person who has to write down things. I have to schedule unpleasant tasks or I’ll blow them off forever. Sometimes I will write down things I’ve done just so I can have the pleasure of crossing them off a list. I’m trying to create some good habits in my life right now, so I think I’m going to give this a try!

  4. You know what else this is perfect for? Those chores which are so constant you don’t want to add them to a weekly to do list but want the incentive of crossing something off. Especially if it’s only 2-3 times a week. Now that I wrote that out, that may be the same thing as a habit, but in my brain they are different. Positive new things vs boring tedious things I guess.

  5. I love this tracker idea! And I’m excited about the new blog. I read your Bullet Journal posts for so long that I finally started and I LOOOOOOOOOVE it!

    PS – I just realized that you should probably not shorten Bullet Journal to BJ because then it said “I read your BJ blogs for a long time” and giggled to myself like pre-teen idiot.
