I have a confession to make. I love paper planners. I know, I know — I work at a digital company. But there is just something about putting pen to paper that makes my goals seem more achievable and manageable. Nothing like crossing something off your to-do list, amiright? This new year, my bullet journal's been on fire with a habit tracker, monthly budget, and a meal planner, but my fitness goals could use a bit finessing. I did a bit of research on the 'gram (as one does) and found some drool-worthy ideas to get my February off to the right start.
1. Set Your Intentions
Before you actually do any tracking, you need to set your goals and intentions for the week/month/year. This can be as grandiose as running a marathon or as small as drinking eight glasses of water a day. I'll leave it up to you.
2. Get Creative
No, you don't have to be an artist, but there are definitely tons of unique and out-of-the-box ways to keep track of your fitness goals. Try something new, and if it's not working, try again. That's the beauty of a bullet journal; you can literally do whatever you want. Mess-up pages are OK!
3. Hold Yourself Accountable
As with all goals, they're only effective if you stick to them. The beauty of a bullet journal is that it keeps you inspired. Seeing the manifestation of your goals right there on paper will, in theory, keep you motivated.
