New Year Resolutions, Bullet Journaling and Other Updates

This post was originally titled “Oops, I haven’t posted in 5 months”, but I figured my 3 readers didn’t really need me to tell them that. Instead, I’m going to focus on some new things going on in my life.

New Years Resolutions (in February)

I usually don’t make any resolutions because I don’t ever stick to them, but this year I really wanted to renew my previously lackluster commitment to running. Using a Couch To 5k program, my goal is to run three times a week and sign up for a 5k in the spring. So far, I’m doing surprisingly well. Even though I should be on Week 6 now, I’ve been repeating the Week 5, Workout 1 routine a few times over until I felt comfortable enough to move up to Week 5, Workout 2; 5:1 has 5:00 running intervals and 5:2 has 8:00 running intervals. I feel great, I look great (kind of) and I’m so proud of my progress. Helping me along my fitness journey is Soylent, and I really do believe that this drink is the reason why I’ve been able to get this far in the program.

My second resolution was to blog once a week. Well, we see how that’s been going. The truth is, I think about blogging all the time, but I never feel like anything I have to say is relevent or interesting. That being said, I think I am going to change my blog a little bit soon to make it more about my life and hobbies, as opposed to just focused on knitting. The problem is that I can’t think of a blog name to replace Perfect Purl. I’m open to suggestions.

Some of the things I would like to start blogging about include book reviews, coffee and bullet journaling. Which leads me to…

Bullet Journaling!

I’m really excited about this. If you’ve ever read my blog before, you probably know that I’m a fan of the Erin Condren Life Planner¬†and planning in general. I’ve been stalking following some bullet journalers on Instagram for months, and finally I decided to try it out myself. I didn’t think I would like it. Boy, was I wrong. I love it. Eric and I have been trying it out together, and we both really enjoy it so far.

In Closing

I’m going to do my best to start blogging weekly. My posts will probably be about an assortment of things and I don’t know if I can stay motivated to do it.
