Apparently I was really feeling black and neutrals as my color palette over the last week.
LAST WEEK’S WIN: I think the biggest win from the past week was that I successfully listened to my body. This is not a strength of mine and I’m usually one to just push through it. I did not feel great on Thursday– between feeling anxious and exhausted, it just wasn’t going to be a great day for me. And instead of feeling guilty and working anyway, I listened to what my body needed guilt-free. I ended up taking a long mid-day nap and then worked from bed the rest of the day. Even though the day wasn’t great, I was proud of myself!
THIS WEEK’S GOAL: I finally (!!!!!) get to see my family next week and I really, really can’t wait. Coincidentally I have one last big deadline due Monday, which is the same day as my flight. I didn’t plan it this way, but it’s working out perfectly. I can’t wait to see everyone and I’m beyond grateful I get to do so without work looming over my head. My goal for this week is to get ahead of schedule so I can fully enjoy my trip. (I really could cry just typing this….. I’m so excited, relieved, happy, and emotional.)
WEEK OF OUTFITS 4.20.21
I had a pretty normal day. I broke up my day by working from Sunday Motor for a little bit and then had to go to a dermatologist appointment. If you haven’t already, I recommend making your appointments to get your skin checked! I was nervous about a freckle that had changed recently. I’m going back for a followup but the doctor felt confident it was all good.
Okay I had to share this outfit. I wore something else most of the day and then changed into the yoga pants and shirt to volunteer in…. but took the dogs out for a walk first. It’s a whole vibe.
This was the day I didn’t feel good. I put this outfit on for therapy in the morning. (It’s on Zoom so I only have to worry about what the top half of me looks like….) Then I spent almost all day napping/working in bed.
After sleeping a TON, I felt great. I was so glad I took the time to rest because I ended up having an insanely productive day. I just cruised through my to-do list and felt great heading into the weekend.
We had a low-key Saturday! We popped over to Mike’s sister’s house to hang out with them after our niece’s naptime. I came home to work more in the afternoon, but it felt nice to have a quiet house for working.
Mike and I went out to our local diner for an outdoor brunch. It was a nicer day on Sunday so I spent some time outdoors in the backyard needlepointing before diving into more work.
I had such a Monday type of Monday! I had put together my to-do list the night before and felt confident in getting it all done. And I always LOVE a good productive Monday because it sets the tone for the rest of the week. I broke the day up by editing photos in a cafe– it’s one of my least favorite tasks so it’s nice to at least get to enjoy a little treat from a cafe while doing it.
