the weekend list no. 53

My low this week has simply been the fact that I’ve been having technical difficulties surrounding my work several days this week 😣 I know I’m not alone because I saw a couple posts on Instagram about other people having annoying tech issues that made them less productive. Whenever things like that happen, I think of this post from Sara Blakely’s Instagram which is sooo accurate.

My high this week has probably been getting to take some new photos for a brand collaboration (see: yesterday’s post). Oddly enough, it was my first time going out to take photos in 2019! Although it was really cold and windy while shooting, we got some pictures that I really like and that’s always a fun thing. My other high has just been doing yoga everyday and seeing more progress in my flexibility. I’ve been working out consistently since my senior year of high school, but have always switched things up a lot and have never really stuck to one practice. But, I’ve been committed to solely focusing on yoga lately and I’ve already seen progress in things like getting into crow pose and getting my heels to the ground in downward facing dog.

I hope this doesn’t come off the wrong way, but the past few weeks have really been focused a lot on the grind. I’ve definitely done a lot of fun things this month with friends and family, trying new restaurants, and so on but for the most part, January has been about setting up my habits for the year and getting back on track after the holidays with work. I didn’t complete my bucket list for the month, but I’m making an effort to do more in February and to have some more adventures and fun experiences. I’m not saying January wasn’t fun, it’s just that I want to do even more next month.
