Bullet Journaling Is The New Thing.

9:23 a.m. So, not long after writing about possibly getting a bullet journal a couple days ago, I promptly went out that day. On my bike. To the dollar store.

I got graph paper, a binder, an ultra thin tip pen, and some dividers and sheet protectors.

Then I came home and cut and glued my way into my own homemade bullet journal.

The case was an old (and ultra cute) thrift shop magnetic iPad case I feel in love with from a while back.

I tore out the binder rings from the cheap binder and glued it to the case, burning my fingertips on the hot glue in the process. :(

The pages took a lot of preparation, exhaustively, but hopefully this will improve productivity and organization in the long run. I got a lot my ideas from Pinterest, after all.

Yesterday, I took a day off from fitness and the ACV/green tea challenge.

Today, I'm back on the ACV and my body took in big straw gulps, cause apparently, I really needed it.

While I haven't derailed 'too far' off my healthy diet, I did find myself drinking a lot less water yesterday, which bothered me. I notice this because I pay close attention to my urine color, ensuring its clear or pale yellow...otherwise its a sign of dehydration. So..yeah.

ALSO! I decided to try and track my weight after all, and measurements. To record in the new journal. Just not this week. God willing, maybe when we got to the grocery store next Sunday or something, lol.

I'm also hoping to post monthly 'before photos' so I can get a good idea of my weight-loss progress from month to month.

Mind you, getting back on the health horse started at the beginning of June last month, so there's not a ton of weight loss to be seen so far.

But I've given myself six months to get to a healthy weight, that amount of time being because I have a Cozumel cruise to go on for my 30th birthday and I want to look and feel great...and overall, confident for it. I want to be fit by 30. I really, truly do. I need to have more discipline, and its something I'm definitely working on.

Further, I want this to be a lifestyle change.

And bonus? On the trip, I think there's an all you can eat buffet, which means I can eat all the healthy goodies I want!

Nanowrimo Camp is going strong, that's another bonus.

I've been trying for three days now to get in the Secondlife Crystal Heart Festival with no success. :/

Thanks to God for the bullet journaling, I now have tasks planned out on the calendar in an effort to increase productiveness. And while yesterday was a bit slack, today I'm nailing it. Praise God/Jesus.

Altador Cup is over, and results are due in a few days. :)

Also, I think I've been having those physical and audio hallucinations again, always right in those few seconds between sleeping and waking to conscienceless.

This time...well, I'll start here. I let the cats sleep in my room with me a while, and then finally after they scuffled too much, I sent them out and closed my bedroom door.

Hours later, as I was coming to from REM sleep, and thinking about cat fleas being in my hair (from the dream.)

I wake to the sound, and feel, of a cat claw knead one time into the pillow by my face.

Feeling annoyed by being woken by the cats, again, I jump up and shout "Hey!"

I look over my bed at practically the same instant, there is no cat there. My door...was still closed. And no cats came out from under the bed, or moved around the room. So yeah...

There are also times when I'm lying alone in bed on my side and behind me, I'll literally feel the bed change pressure like a cat is kneading the bed. Again, always, there's nothing there.

I do believe physical and auditory hallucinations are a thing. I do not believe in ghosts and wandering spirits, even of animals. But that's me.

Anyway, that was worth sharing and I'm done.

God bless. Jesus saves. All glory, praise, thanks and all things be to God on the highest forever and ever in Jesus name, amen! God is able to do above all we ask or think. Pluh. :P

All Glory, Praise, Thanks and all things be to almighty God on the highest forever and ever in Jesus name, amen. God is able to do above all we ask or think!
