“Me Day” Highlights

Morning friends! Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Mine was great — I had a “me day” on Saturday and it was wonderful! (I talk about what a “me day” is here and it’s one of my April goals to have a “me day” this month!)
I started the day at CrossFit. The workout was Elizabeth: 21, 15, 9 Cleans & Ring Dips. The Rx weight for women was 95 lbs, but I knew that was probably a little too heavy for me. I warmed up with 65 lbs which felt easy, but then when I added 10s, and was up to 85 lbs, it suddenly felt really hard! With so many reps I decided to go with 75 lbs, but halfway through the workout I knew I went to light. I finished in a little less than 9 minutes and was totally kicking myself– I should have challenged myself more! I know for next time!

After showering and eating breakfast I headed to the nail salon. I had an appointment for the works– a pedicure, gel manicure and to get my eyebrows waxed. When I got there and sat in the chair, my favorite magazine, People’s Style Watch was already right there! Ahhh, let the relaxation begin!!

Magazine & Pedicure

On a side note, I’m one of those weird people that takes photos of things they see in magazines. People always look at me like I’m crazy when I do it but it’s just so that I can reference things later… is that odd? Anyway, I’m loving this trend towards crop tops and high-waisted skirts!  I’m also loving  and this aqua green color I’m seeing everywhere!

I snapped a photo of this DIY fruit peel thinking that might be fun to try in the future!

Everyone at the nail salon had Starbucks and after my appointment, I was so sleepy I decided to splurge and get a coffee frappuccino. I noticed Starbucks is rolling out a new line of pastries called La Boulange and I’m obsessed with the branding–  I love anything pink and ultra feminine. It matched my nails so I took a moment to capture the prettiness! 🙂

Starbucks & ManicureI headed to Sears next and got a few new shirts and necklaces for work. EVERYTHING was on sale in Sears and I had a 15 percent off coupon so I felt pretty good about my purchases!

New ShirtsAfter that I had lunch with Aaron and then headed to mom’s for awhile – she’s moving and I helped her pack a little. Then I headed to Old Navy (I had the shopping bug) but I was beginning to feel exhausted! I finally went home and I don’t know what happened, but I got a sudden burst of energy and decided to rearrange my apartment! I love to switch things up, especially when the season is changing and I have to say: the new arrangement looks fantastic! I’m loving it! (I’ll share pictures soon!)

All and all it was a perfect “me day” – pampering, shopping, redecorating! Maybe I can squeeze one of these days in every month! 🙂

What did you do this weekend? Have you ever had a me day?

    I noticed that you are wearing a FitBit on the same wrist with your watch, does that mess it up any as far as tracking? I’ve always wondered that and never worn them together. Thanks!

      Hey Jennifer! I actually plan to blog about my FitBit Flex later this week! I just got it and really love it! I don’t think the watch interferes at all — there wasn’t a warning about that on the packaging and I haven’t seen anything online or heard otherwise. Actually, Saturday, when that photo was taken, was the first day I got more than 10,000 steps in!! I was so excited! I think it was from working out PLUS, shopping (i.e. walking) all day.

        Thanks I will try it. I love getting in 10,000 steps. Since I’m a secretary and sit most of the day it is hard for that to happen, but love it when it does. I’m trying to get motivated to get back in shape!

          You got this girl! I think the FitBit is really motivating- it’s helped me realize I can make a difference outside the gym!

  2. I want those heels (featured in the style magazine)! I wish I had use for normal and even dressy clothes!

    Your “Me Day” sounds pretty great! I yearn for a day like that soon… I insanely miss them. Hopefully in the next few months I’ll be able to have a fun day like that (maybe I’ll intersect it with a cheat meal day)
