hey friends! hope your week is off to a great start! i’d say my monday is probably pretty indicative of how the rest of my week will be – crazy busy!

i left st. louis pretty early this morning and have been going non-stop since i got back to madison.

i started off the day with a little starbucks action!

grande light-ice iced coffee with skim milk, please!


overnight oats with berries.

eaten off my lap while driving…. (probably not the safest idea, but i wasn’t hungry until a couple hours after i got up!)


lunch was a quick sub about an hour outside of madison.

a chicken breast sub with lettuce, tomato, cucumber, black olives, pickles, banana peppers, and some yellow mustard on wheat bread.


and dinner was leftover indian food from saturday night. no photo, because, let’s be honest, it looks a little bit like baby poop. it was delicious though! 🙂


monday minis

now it’s time to check in to see how i did on last week’s goals…

¤ complete week 3 of the pipes challenge. check!

¤ finish 2 projects at lab that i’ve been putting off. one down, one to go this week!

¤ no alcohol all week. almost check! i shared one beer with brad on saturday afternoon because i completely forgot about this goal! i didn’t have any more though once i remembered…

¤ do 30 day shred 2x this week← big fat fail. i didn’t even do it once! bad sarah…


goals for next week:

♦ complete week 4 of the one hundred pushups program for the pipes challenge.

♦ maintain calm and positive attitude during move to new apartment – no stressing! i need to remember that this is a fun and happy change and that even though moving isn’t fun, it’s worth it!

♦ do not hit the snooze button at all.

♦ complete lab to-do list. (i won’t bore you all by listing it out!)


whew! ok, i’m off to finish a work project that i am forcing myself to turn in to my pi by tomorrow!

  1. Good job on your goals! I need to drag out my 30 day shred again…
    I don’t think I have a favorite quote…but the quotes I most often gravitate to are existential-type ponderings haha I’m not usually a deep thinker about the meaning of life, but for some reason those quotes really strike a chord with me!

  2. oooh can’t wait to read the comments. i LOVE quotes.

    **Dream big- but still allow the little things to make you happy**

    **If you get a chance, take it. If it changes your life, let it. No one ever said it would be easy; they just promised it would be worth it.**

    **It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are**

    Those are on my facebook profile right now.
    and here’s one i just read today and love:

    “speak your mind, even if your voice shakes”

    Good luck with the move to the new apartment next week. It really is crucial not to stress about it, and just take one thing at a time and be excited about your new place. 🙂

  4. One of my favorite quotes: I am a woman above everything else.

    Enjoy your night, Sarah! 🙂

  5. I started my day with a trip to Starbucks too! 🙂

    I have two quotes that I love love love:

    “Just know if you’re crying, or you’re having a bad day, and you’ve been knocked around, the best thing to do is come back. Some days just fucking suck.” – Kelly Cutrone to her employees; it’s just damn good advice!

    “Pay no attention to what critics say. A statue has never been erected in honor of a critic.” – I’m not sure who said this, but it’s great!

  6. The oats look great, totally daring eating them while driving though! 🙂 One of my fave quotes:

    “Never worry about numbers. Help one person at a time, and always start with the person nearest you.”
    – Mother Teresa

    “There’s a fine line between cleaver and stupid.” -Spinal Tap

    Since I am in the lab myself, i would love to see your lab to-do list.

    You are getting all chiseled with the shred and pipes challenge for the wedding girl.

    • Sarah says:

      ah, i’m TRYING to get chiseled. i need to get some cardio going on so you can actually see all of these killer muscles i’m getting!

  9. Megan says:

    hope you’re having a great week. here are my favs:

    “I don’t know what you could say about a day in which you have seen four beautiful sunsets.” John Glenn

    “Things turn out best for the people who make the best of the way things turn out.” John Wooden

    “The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.” St. Augustine
