New week!

And another week begins ... 

I've realized that I sound like a whiny brat complaining on a Monday. Every single Monday, I complain about it being Monday. I really should be grateful that its a new week that and I'm alive to see it. I'm definitely going to work on it. Gratefulness aside though, I also really don't care for 'whiny' so I'm going to try to keep it positive this Monday and most Mondays from now on! Emphasis on try. I'm only human.

In an effort to keep it positive, this is my motto today:



Let's be honest, that's the only way I'm gonna get myself out of the usual 'Monday blues' ;)

There really isn't much to recap about this weekend to be honest. It was pretty quiet. Friday night I stayed in ... and watched TV ... and read a little bit of this book:


I am usually a very quick reader and can finish a book in a day flat but this one I'm just dragggging my feet on. I'm also frankly just busy and sometimes after reading hundreds and hundred of pages of cases every day for work the last thing I want to do is read more of anything. Enter Real Housewives and other trash TV. They keep me sane. I am going to finish the book though, because I can't leave a book unfinished and because the lawyer in me wants to see if he contradicts Amanda Knox. Eventually.

On Saturday I had an all day meeting beginning at 8:30 am *yawns*. Noone should be forced to wake up that early on a Saturday. No one. It should be a crime. After the meeting I drove to my parents house and spent the night and all of Sunday. It was a pretty bummy Saturday and Sunday because of personal life issues so I spent most of Sunday working on a file for work and  in bed. No church this week. 

I was actually supposed to spend Sunday with one of my besties Nads. She is one of my favourite people in the world and she was also my roommate in college. Love this girl! Anyway on Sunday there was a meet and greet for a YouTube comedienne Latoya Forever. Nads lovessss Latoya Forever. I was supposed to go with her but ... my Saturday bummy-ness transferred into Sunday and I just couldn't make it. 

Nads on the right

She had fun though and she sent me lots of pics even though I couldn't be there. The girl is a gem seriously!





I'm not one to make new years resolutions or any grand statements of what I will do, because the fact is 99.9% of the time I won't do it. Either because of the pressure to do some big grand thing or just simply because I forget. But that being said, I need some structure, and so I decided that I need to make some short realizable goals. My goals for the week:

  • Go to the Gym at least 3 times this week - Guys I have a gym memebership that I pay and dont use. This has to stop. Also I'm going to start t run so I need to build up my stamina.
  • Get caught up on deadlines - I have so many deadlines. So. many. (Insert profanity of choice)
  • Better balance of time - Sometimes because I dont balance my time I end up sleeping 3 hours a night. This has gotta stop. This girl is bloody exhausted.

Let's hope I can stick to it!

Happy Monday guys!

  7. I love goal lists — in fact I have no fewer than 3 running at any given time — so I totally love your weekly goal lists idea. Good luck with picking up running! I probably don't have to say how smiley that makes me haha :) have a great week!

  9. I love the weekly goals! Way easier to manage. I completely understand the balance, I'm trying to learn to say no to things, but it's much easier said than done! Hope you have a good Monday:)

  10. I have a gym membership I never use, too! Ugh. I need to get back on it. And I'm with you on the sleep deprivation thing. SIGH. It stinks you didn't have a chance to go with your friend, but at least she got to meet Latoya Forever since she loves her so much.

  11. One of my weekly goals is also making it to the gym 3 times a week. It's funny how I used to go non- stop, I actually looked forward to my workouts. Lately all I look forward to is coming home after work and sinking into my couch! Good luck with your goals this week!
