Happy Monday!

I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed today because I didn't do ANY work over the weekend. I had a long to do list for some upcoming projects, and I didn't cross one thing off my list. 

I just felt a bit off this weekend. I didn't sleep well last week, and felt kind of moody, emotional and blah all weekend. I really should have accepted my need for rest and relaxation, rested and enjoyed it. But instead I stressed about what I should have been doing as I did other things that weren't work.

Today, I'm feeling a bit under the weather. This is what happens when you don't care for yourself! 

This week, I'll take things one at a time to try to reduce stress. I'll also make yoga and meditation a priority so I don't get too worked up about my to do list.

Here's a look at the food, fitness and other adventures from my weekend...

Friday, Jan. 8

The BF and I went to Target. I needed contact solution. I spent $60. Typical. 


We grabbed dinner at Buffalo Wild Wings. I had a chicken caesar salad, a few onion rings and a glass of wine.

Saturday, Jan. 9


Breakfast was oats with chia seeds, goji berries, almond milk, cinnamon and almond butter. I also ate a hard boiled egg.

My parents picked me up, and we went to my sister-in-law's grandfather's funeral. He passed away unexpectedly last week. I didn't know him well, but I know he was a very important part of my sister-in-law's family. 

When I got home, the BF and I decided to go to the new Flippin Sweet Burger Joint. When we got there it was closed. It's a casual burger restaurant that is only open for dinner. So weird. Remember last weekend when we went to the Flippin Sweet pizza place and they were out of pizza dough? We have issues with Flippin Sweet, but their food is just so good. Ugh.


We went home, and I had avocado toast topped with chili flakes and pink Himalayan salt and eggs with turmeric. The BF had made homemade bread that was perfect for my avocado toast!


I enjoyed a La Croix sparkling water.


Then my parent's picked me up for another Target outing. I was looking for something that I could use to organize my activewear. My workout clothes have been overflowing out of my dresser and they've been sitting in piles on my bedroom floor. 

I got a Starbucks cinnamon chai tea latte made with coconut milk for our shopping excursion. It was extremely cold all weekend...like 18º, but felt like 1º. 


This is what we ended up with! I love it!


When I got home, the BF went to Buffalo Records. So I snuggled on the couch with olive oil and sea salt air popped organic popcorn, magazines and old episodes of Friends. I got through a few magazines, which was a major accomplishment. I am working on catching up on all my mags!


I took a yoga break. I did a hip opening practice on one0eight.


Then the BF arrived home and made chicken marsala. 

And we headed out to the World Theatre to see Room. I had a glass of wine during the movie, which was absolutely incredible...so intimate, intense and sad. 

Sunday, Jan. 10


I slept in. Then I made whole wheat pancakes, eggs and turkey bacon for breakfast. 


I meal planned. The BF will be working Thursday and Friday evenings, so I kept those days loose. 


I reorganized our tea cupboard. Out. Of. Control.

I made matcha chia pudding and gingerbread overnight oats.


The BF and I decided to go furniture shopping. We're currently looking for a headboard, living room chairs, lamps and a table for the BF's record player. We didn't buy any furniture, but we got some ideas.


At home, I colored while the BF made dinner. Do you notice a pattern here? He cooks a lot! I get to relax ; )


We had my parents over for turkey lasagna and homemade Parmesan garlic knots. Everything was delicious!

We ended the night by watching the Golden Globes. 

How was your weekend? How do you get yourself out of a funk and stay motivated to get work done?
