Yes, I'm keeping my promise to be running a day late. Thus, without further ado...

This week...

+ I have a feeling is going to be a rough one. After a 5 day weekend, and an inbox full of unanswered emails, it's certainly tough getting back into the swing of things

+ I am going to be eating healthy. Yesterday, my trainer and I sat down and brainstormed all sorts of proteins, vegetables, grains and snacks I should be eating. Last night's dinner was apple chicken sausage with sweet potatoes and brussels sprouts with a maple glaze. Tonight's feeling like salad with some chicken. Already out and defrosted.

+ Speaking of the trainer brainstorming, we're also doing a refresher. Is it just me or am I always doing something to get myself back on track? We'll this time, we're calling it a refresher because it's more about creating consistency and being honest with my goals and what I am going to do to sustain them over a longer period of time. 

+ And yes, I know I said all this two weeks ago.

+ I'm doing a little decorating. Last week, Barb and I popped into Home Goods to check out some rugs and they had such fantastic stuff that I've been clamoring to go here in Chicago. Last night's project was adding to my gallery wall with some of the pictures I printed at Walgreens.

+ While we were there, we also looked at full length mirrors. Incase you can't tell from my instagrams and #ootd posts, I dont have one. And reallllly want one. She helped me figure out what a good and realistic price for one should be.

+ And I know you're thinking what about the self imposed shopping embargo? Well that was just for this month's credit card bill, which ends this week :)

+ There's a small chance I'll be heading up to Madison this Friday night or Saturday morning for the day. I'm really in the mood for a good peruse around the Farmer's Market and it just so happens to be the Art Fair on the Square. Plus I miss my old stomping grounds.

+ I'm counting down the minutes until I get to welcome my new niece or nephew into the world!
