The Bullet Journal Method Book Review

The Bullet Journal Method by Ryder Carroll

It is not often that I am beyond excited to read a new book. But the minute I heard that Ryder Carroll, creator of the Bullet Journal wrote a book on the subject, I just couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. I preordered the book in June, and it came on the day of its release, October 23rd. I read the book as soon as it came and I wished I could keep reading it forever. Does it ever happen to you to not want to finish a book because it is too good? That’s exactly how I felt reading the Bullet Journal Method.

What I read this month : October edition

I am always curious to snoop on what others are reading. One of my favorite authors, Gretchen Rubin, started sharing a monthly recap of what she’s been reading and it made me think that you might also benefit from book recommandations! So I’ve decided to start my own monthly recap! I hope you like it! So onwards with what I read in October.

My Health and Wellness journey : the Keto Diet

My face after losing 65 pounds

For the past few years, my main goal was to overhaul my health on all levels. I was feeling sick, I was morbidly obese and disgusted with my appearance. My fibromyalgia was flaring up on a daily basis. I did not know what to do to feel better but something needed to happen. I’m only in my thirties and the future was not so bright. I could see the specter of diabetes and heart disease looming above me. I wanted things to change. Last year, I had to take many days off of work because of intense gastrointestinal pain. My doctor diagnosed a gastritis and I tried to figure out how my diet was influencing the way I felt. I went to an acupuncturist and a naturopath and they both recommended that I quit dairy and investigate gluten sensitivity. I went off both for two months and my gastritis went away. My naturopath suggested that I take a food sensitivities test and the results were astounding. I was sensitive not only to gluten and dairy, but also to soy, eggs, […]
