One quick announcement that I want to make is that I am currently working on making the perfect Bullet Journal notebooks for you guys, so if you’re interested in buying one for yourself you can follow me on Instagram to know when those are released. Alternatively, just stay tuned to my blog or youtube channel!
I’m a huge fan of staying fit and healthy and I’ve been consistently going to the gym for over two years now. Despite my love for staying fit, I’ve never actually completed one of those 30-day fitness challenges you find all over Pinterest. I was scrolling through Pinterest the other day looking for some new exercises to spice up my workout routine and I found this 30-Day Abs Challenge. Abs are probably my least favourite muscle group to focus on while I’m at the gym because it just BURNS SO BAD… so I thought I might try this challenge out to gradually build up my core strength. 🙂 Of course, I had to make sure I incorporated the challenge into my bullet journal to make sure I stayed committed to it, so I put it into a little tracker.
Usually a lot of these challenges consist of about 3 different exercises with increasing number of repetitions as you progress through the 30 days. If you have a notebook similar to mine and a challenge with 3 exercises, your table measurements will be similar to mine too:
- 3 tables – 1 table per exercise
- each table consists of 10 squares (height) x 24 squares (width)
- the first 6 squares (width) from the left and taking up the entire height of the table, will be where you label the exercise (and a cute little diagram if you want 🙂 )
- the remaining area to the end of the table are split into 3 x 2 squares each representing one day
Obviously once you’ve drawn the table you’ll have 30 squares each representing every single day of your challenge and it should look a little something like mine in the photo above. If your challenge has a different total number of exercises, or if your notebook has lines or squares that are a little different to mine you’ll need to adjust the measurements I’ve provided.
I decided to add this step in a little later because I realised that the number of repetitions per exercise you do everyday increases, and doesn’t stay the same. So instead of having to remember how many reps I did the day before and figuring out how many I’d have to do on a specific day, I thought I would write in the number of repetitions for each day. For the image above for example, we’d have 5 reps of crunches in day one of the challenge, followed by 20 in day two, then 25 in day three and so on…
Using the tracker is super simple and just requires your dedication and commitment to completing the exercises and filling in each day you’ve completed with a coloured pencil or marker. One thing I absolutely just love about bullet journal trackers is that by the end of the tracker, if you’ve managed to successfully complete it, you don’t only have a pretty and colourful new page in your bullet journal, but you also feel so accomplished! Best feeling ever. 🙂
