Was I the only one who literally could not stop hitting the snooze button this morning?? It was just one of those mornings where I could barely keep my eyes open while picking out what to wear to work and putting on my makeup, which is weird because I can usually wake up pretty quickly once I’m up and out of bed… I guess that I just have a case of the Monday Blues!
So to keep my mind off of my bed and how much I would like to roll myself back up in my blankets and sleep for another 12 hours, I’ve come up with a list of things that I really need to get done this week (and should have actually done last week haha) to get motivated and kick Monday’s butt!
Take my clothes to the dry cleaners.
It’s actually getting ridiculous how long I’ve had a pile of clothes in my back seat for now. I keep telling myself that it’s okay since I’ve been traveling for work a lot lately and just got back last night from visiting my sister up in Maine this past weekend, but it’s high time that I get my sh*t in line and make my way over to the local dry cleaner after work today.
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 general laziness lately I’ve fallen behind. So one of my goals for this week is to sit down with a nice glass of wine, light a candle, and try my hardest to remember what I did last Tuesday evening after work… Hint: I may have spent WAY too much money on new sweaters from J. Crew and Madewell.
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. I got maybe 4k steps yesterday after spending half of the day driving back home, and all I can say is that I’m feeling a little lethargic right now from the lack of exercise. Gotta step it up!
Finish listening to my latest ‘The Great Courses’ audiobook, Food: A Cultural Culinary History.
Reading and eating are two of my favorite things, so this audio-course is right up my alley. I find it so interesting that there is such an important link between what people ate throughout history and how that possibly influenced their entire cultures and what they did on a day-to-day basis.
Do you guys have any small goals that you want to accomplish this week?
