A Week in Pictures

NYC 3.20.14

I took a blogging break this week because work has been very busy these days. Also I started planning for my Spring organization project. I aim to tackle the whole apartment over the next few weeks. All while trying to get back into a workout routine and eat better. It’s been a good type of busy all round. I’m so grateful Spring is here and I cannot wait to be outside more.

To start off the week I made it a point to workout on Monday. Based on the stuff going on this week I knew my workout days were going to be Mon, Fri, Sat and Sun. It’s a weird schedule but those are the days I can carve out a full hour for workouts. I’m done feeling bad about not being able to workout every day “like everyone else”. I’m just going to work with my time,  the way I can.  #wycwyc

Maybe later on I can wake up early during the week to workout but since I have to shower right after it needs to be warm enough that I can put my wet/damp hair up and go to work. Until then I’ll work with the time I do have and stop using it as a reason for not working out.

Workout Done!

How I love you loaded sweet potato! :) This has become one of my weekly “go-to” meals thanks to my good friend Carlyn from Just Keep Sweating! If you are not watching her vlogs then you are really missing out. Especially with easy clean recipes like these. She casually tells us what she’s eating and it always looks so delicious you just have to recreate it. There are not enough words to tell you how delicious this meal is and it so filling!

I made this purchase for my fancy new camera. I wanted a camera bag that looks like a purse because I do not see myself carrying two bags when taking my DSLR out. I also really dislike all the traditional camera bags I saw on Amazon. I wanted a camera bag that looks like a purse! I found just what I was looking for at Jo Totes. I’ll do a separate post on my camera and this bag later. But I have to say I am SO HAPPY with my camera bag. It fits my camera perfectly, my iPad and has enough room for my makeup bag and wallet. It will be perfect for traveling.

OMG, I am in love…with this lotion by Pacifica. Winter has done a number on my skin no matter how much I moisturize. I got the coconut nectar body butter as part of my March ipsy glam bag and was surprised to really like it. I am so picky when it comes to lotions. Strong smells are an immediate turnoff for me. The coconut scent on this body butter is soft and it goes on so smoothly, I just loved it.  My skin felt so happy when I put on the body butter after my shower. I have to get more! Tons more!  :)

And of course all my favorite things about NYC are in this one picture. I posted it on Instagram last night and looking at it just makes me so happy. The taxis (which to me will always represent my dad), the park, the bare trees, the clouds and the sun setting just made for a great picture… if I do say so myself. This location holds a special significance for me. I would elaborate more on it but that would be focusing on the past, when all my efforts should be in looking forward. Seeing a familiar view and feeling peace is something to feel thankful for indeed.

    I had no idea that they made purses for the DSLR camera. I think I’m in love!

    Okay. So I’m going to need you to stop posting cool new items that I NEED. First it was the planner and now it’s the tote. I NEEEEEED this tote.

    My checkbook is super angry with you.

    Well maybe not, because the Jo tote is much more reasonably priced then the Kelly Moore bag I am dying for

    Love you.

      This tote is just OK. I don’t really love it. I wish I got a Kelly Moore bag. I wanted the Esther bag. This one does the job for now. Hope you are well! xoxo
