I tried really hard last week to find my working groove again. You know how hard that can be after a holiday break, right?
But it was time!
It was time to get back into routine, for my son to go back to school and for the holiday season to just be over already and real life to resume.
I found my way back to working from Panera a few mornings last week. So often I have Skype conference calls which means I tend to end up working from home but I like to get out when I can for the change of scenery AND change of coffee selection too.
I am loving my new Henri Bendel planner for this year! It’s not so easy switching planner styles (I have used the Erin Condren Lifeplanner for the last two years) but this one is SO PRETTY.
I feel like I got back on my usual track of posting last week too although I can’t guarantee to myself that it will happen six days a week, every week which is okay. There’s only so much a girl can juggle so I decided to just go with my own flow, whatever that may be.
Relieving my own mental pressure by telling myself to only post when I can truly get it done may make all the difference in allowing me to actually get it done more often. Does that make sense?
How Disordered Eating Can Start was probably my most popular post last week. I know you guys appreciate those types of posts so I do try to write on the topic as often as my brain can come up with the words to share.
I recapped my workouts in yesterday’s post but it’s worth mentioning again that the weather has been so wacky here. One day it’s warm for winter in New York and the next day it’s cold and seriously snowing. Ugh, is it March yet?
Like Saturday’s sudden and basically unexpected snowstorm put me over the edge. I was not in the mood or even prepared to be stuck in the house. My son’s hockey game was quickly canceled in the morning and the snow starting falling basically as I finished my long run but I just couldn’t give in to the weather.
Instead I went to the mall to pretend it wasn’t snowing. I managed to find myself this adorable Cozy Cold Shoulder Sweatshirt at Abercrombie which I do think you need. It’s really cute and doesn’t look frumpy so I say it’s more of a “top” than a sweatshirt.
Eventually I forced myself to go home before the roads were horrendous and glued myself to the television where I watched several episodes of Girlfriend’s Guide To Divorce.
For the longest time I avoided shows on the topic of divorce. Now though, not only can I handle them, I relate and laugh at how real they can be. I even stopped to wonder what it would be like to watch this particular show in my 20’s because no way would I get it. No way in my 20’s did I ever imagine life to be what it is in my 30’s.
If you watch Girlfriends’ Guide To Divorce and are in fact divorced, you know exactly what I mean. If you watch the show and aren’t divorced, you may think it’s fiction and over the top but trust me, it is very much reality which in some ways, still seems over the top. But it isn’t, because it’s real life. Sorry to scare you. 🙂
I finally got back to some vegetables this week! Although I can totally see that eating serious amounts of produce may really be a thing of the past, I still enjoy a salad or a slice of veggie pizza.
I had this salad at Panera while working one day. Normally I choose an apple with my salad but I went with bread this time around because I am totally off apples right now. Who am I?
Villa Monte makes the best whole wheat vegetable pizza. It’s so good!
Oh, and I had Chinese food. Nothing like steamed vegetable dumplings, that’s for sure.
I finally had a Red Mango parfait too! It had been way too long since my last parfait.
I don’t spend much money these days when I go food shopping because I am not buying as many fresh or frozen vegetables. Please don’t ask me what it is I have been eating instead because I don’t even have an answer for you! Maybe that’s a good thing. Sometimes I wonder why we pay so much attention to what we eat all of the time?
I do still peek around Trader Joe’s to see what’s new and I swear I had never seen these chocolate chip waffles. Have they been out for a while?
You would think that with the snowstorm I would have baked something but that didn’t happen. I was absolutely not in the mood which may have something to do with being glued to my Netflix marathon.
Linking up with Meg’s Week in Review!
Do you have a favorite TV series right now? Which one?!
Have you tried these chocolate chip waffles from Trader Joe’s?
