Oh hey, it's Friday! This is shaping up to be a pretty interesting weekend in NYC, with temperatures climbing into the 70s today (yay!) and then dropping way down on Sunday with the possibility of some...(deep breath)...SNOW (booooooooo!). I wish the spring weather would take off its coat and sit for a minute but until then, here are 5 things I'm loving this week:
To-Do List Makeover
I am a planner, a list-lover, and an all-around organization freak so I've always thought I have a pretty good handle on a To Do list system that works for me. Basically, I keep a running Google Doc of tasks that are broken into two categories: Today, and Future. I've noticed that recently my Today portion has been growing longer and longer and I've become increasingly dissatisfied by my inability to cross everything off of it, so I was thrilled to read this article from Glamour. With one simple tweak, my list is suddenly MUCH more manageable and leaves me feeling accomplished by the end of the day because my Today portion now caps out at five action items, while my Future is split into This Week and Beyond. The simple act of giving myself three, instead of two, levels of priority has been incredibly helpful - love a simple fix!
Who else has March Madness fever?! I'm super psyched because my alma mater, Villanova University, is in the Final Four this year! I attended a few games in the earlier rounds but I'll be cheering them on from afar when they take the court in Houston tomorrow night. Who has them picked in their bracket to go all the way?
Girl Scout Cookie Wine Pairings
Unfortunately, all those parfaits eventually take a toll...I've been popping into a bunch of small fitness studios over the past few months and really enjoying those specialized classes, but lately I've been feeling the urge to up my routine and include more weights and machines so...yesterday I rejoined a gym! It has tons of locations, including 4 within walking distance from my office. I'm hoping its accessibility will keep me accountable and help me reach my fitness goals over the next few months!
What are you looking forward to this weekend?
Cheers to April, Amanda, Jennie, Karli, Rebecca, Katie, Heather, Andrea, and Tif for hosting today's link-ups!
