Hello, Friday! I'm so happy to see you! This was another whirlwind week with several evening commitments and we have a busy weekend ahead of us... I'm in dire need of a shouldless day but am hoping to squeeze one in at the end of the month! Here's a TGIF-style recap of my week!
The high of my week was going to my first dress-fitting appointment last night. I looooove my dress so much so love any opportunity to put it on. My dress fits me really well so I won't need a lot of alterations (just hemming and the bustle) which is good as those add up fast.
The low of my week was feeling like crud at the start of the week. I came down with a cold late last week and felt pretty crappy over the weekend and then it dragged on into the week. I'm feeling better but now Phil is starting to get sick. :( I hope my mom and Sisters-in-law didn't catch it while they were at our house last weekend.
A book I am reading is The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon. It's a YA novel that I got from my Book of the Month Club Subscription in December. I find that YA tends to be a great 'palette cleanser.' I just finished a dark book (Beauty and Sadness) which I did not care for at all, so I needed to read something engaging! This book is about a family from Jamaica that is being deported so it's a timely book to read. There's also a sweet love story so I think it's going to be a great book!
For my workouts I had personal training sessions on Monday and Wednesday and went to barre class on Tuesday. Yesterday was a rest day and today I'm hoping to squeeze a quick workout in before heading to our marriage retreat. Saturday will be another rest day since we have our marriage retreat ALL DAY. On Sunday I'm planning to go to a barre class and will also do a 21 day fix total body cardio workout.
The best money I spent was on some frozen yogurt on Monday. I have been so good about avoiding desserts but was craving ice cream so I decided to treat myself to a small cup of froyo at a self-serve place during my lunch break. I went with fruit for toppings (plus like 6 m&ms) to keep it somewhat healthy. It tasted soooo good, especially on my sore throat.
My plans this weekend include going to an engagement retreat tonight (7-9:30) and all day tomorrow (9-7). This is a retreat that is required by the Catholic Church in order to get married in the church. It's going to be a long couple of days but I know we'll get a lot out of it as they cover topics like communication, finances, family planning, etc. I have no plans on Sunday besides going to barre class. I'm going to try to relax as much as I can on Sunday as I'm feeling rather worn out right now!
What was the high of your week? What was the best thing you spent money on this week?
