I hope that everyone had a wonderful weekend and spoiled their dad’s for Father’s Day! I spent most of the weekend either catching up on sleep (I accidentally slept almost 12 hours on Friday night… oops) or spending time outside and enjoying the nice weather up north. After two weeks of absolutely gorgeous weather in Peru, I was somewhat shocked that Connecticut was also sunny and so I’ve been soaking up lots of vitamin D and going for runs on the trails near my apartment.
But now that it’s Monday morning and it’s already time for another work week (why do the weekends always go so quickly??!), I’ve made a little list of things to do this week that I hope will make for an amazing first full week back at work! In other news, I’ve finally started editing my photos from Peru and Machu Picchu and I’m really loving how they came out (please disregard my sweatiness after an hour of hiking haha).
- Steps. Steps. Steps. Getting 10,000 steps a day may seem like too much of a drag after a long day at work, but COME ON GIRL! Go to the gym and then for a short cool-down lap on the trails and before you know it, your FitBit will be buzzing and you’ll feel 100% better about yourself. Because you really can’t brag about 5,000 steps, now can you?
- Catch up on journaling. I’ve been religiously keeping a ‘One Line a Day’ journal for the past three years, which I would absolutely recommend for anyone who likes to have a diary without the time commitment of having a diary, but with all of my traveling (and sleeping) lately I’ve fallen behind. So one of my goals for this week is to sit down with a nice glass of Cabernet and crank out my memories!
- Finish reading the newest Bachelorette autobiography installment. As I’ve said before, The Bachelor and The Bachelorette are my favorite guilty pleasures, so when Andi Dorfman’s book about her breakup came out my friend and I ran out to the bookstore to get it. But to be completely honest, I’m ready to move on (just like Andi was ready to move on from Josh), and so I’d like to finish the book in the next few days. What books are y’all reading right now?
- Namaste. Get back into the routine of meditating before bed every night and then practicing a quick yoga routine in the morning. My sleep cycles have been super funky lately and I’d like to get those back to normal at some point this week. No more tossing and turning!
Do you guys have any small goals that you want to accomplish this week? Also, totally unrelated to this, but do you guys have any favorite vloggers? I watched a few this past weekend and I absolutely getting a sneak peak into other bloggers lives!
