Come Monday, I always wish I could extend my weekend an extra day. Working full time obviously means I can’t do this, so instead of sleeping in like I so often desire, I usually just end up skipping the gym, eating dinner in bed and generally doing as little as productively possible throughout the day.

But this Monday is different. Today I feel motivated to start my week right. Today I feel like making plans and sticking to them, not eating food that comes out of a packet and staying focused on all of the things I’ve started and have yet to finish.

SAVING MONEY – With loose plans to move out sometime early next year, it’s recently dawned on me (for real this time) that I need to learn how to budget properly. At this point in time I’ve found it’s all too easy to become accustomed to the notion that “I’ll save next week”, so it’s important to me that I actually develop good spending habits, so that when I’m in the situation where it’s not an option to buy 3 pairs of shoes on an average shopping trip, I won’t be tempted to do so.

HEALTHY LIVING – Unfortunately over winter I fell into the trap of letting the colder weather get the better of me, so I’m excited to get back into the healthy lifestyle I was so consistent with over summer. With warmer weather literally right around the corner – I’m talking the end of this week – I feel like I’ve finally woken up to the reality check I’ve been trying to give myself for weeks. I’m talking bathing suits here people; it’s no laughing matter.

Thanks to the lovely girls at Beginning Boutique for sending me this cute little daisy chain bracelet. It’s simple and sweet and perfect for Spring.

I hope your Monday is off to a positive start like mine has been, here’s to a good week!
