Tuesday Temptations

I wanted to start today with the Motivation in March quote because it’s so powerful; I hope it really speaks to all of you, but especially if you’re in need of that little boost today.

Moving on, I thought it’d be fun to share a few things tempting me this week…

-ALL the Coffee…

Apparently Thursday-Sunday Starbucks had a free Grande Iced coffee deal…I learned this Friday morning when I decided to spend my morning working from the ‘bux. Let’s just say I preceded to also make a stop for coffee Saturday and Sunday morning…not to mention the free afternoon coffee each day. ;)

-26.2…

I can’t even believe I’m saying this. I also can’t even believe that I entered myself into the lottery for the Chicago Marathon. They pick names April 14th and if you’re chosen you have until the 18th to confirm your registration and pay the $185(!!) fee. I’m undecided but so far I’ve received nothing but support from people about this which makes me even MORE tempted to do it if I’m picked…uh oh.

-Chocolate…

I’m not even kidding. I need all the chocolate. This has been going on for a few weeks but definitely worsened after my trip to Tulsa (where I ate ALL the chocolate). I’m trying to get my act together again because it doesn’t make me feel very good. At least if I want to indulge I should stick with the dark chocolate variety which is more likely to be dairy-free…yeaahhhh

-Shopping…

I tried on Saturday and thankfully (for my wallet’s sake, at least) I had no luck. Nothing was fitting the way it should and I left feeling rather discouraged but my money where it should be (in my bank account!). I thought about heading out again Sunday and hitting up a few other stores but instead stayed home to be productive. I consider this a good decision but the shopping bug is still biting…

-Cleaning…

Is that weird? But seriously, I spent Saturday afternoon cleaning my house and it felt amazing! With my roommate and her dog away for Spring Break, I wanted to start the week off with a super clean and organized house. With it just being me, it will be much easier to upkeep throughout the week and we all know I’m a happier person with a clean and organized home. Type A, much? ;)

 

What’s tempting you lately?

  1. ahhhhhh i love your home! how beautiful <3 i cannot wait to get into a home of my own!!!!!!!!!! and wow what a powerful quote <3

  2. It’s always chocolate for me. I ate half a bar of 75% dark chocolate last night and savored every last bite. No regrets. :]

  3. Thank you for the quote! Really needed it today.

  4. Free iced coffee?? I missed out on a gold mine!!

    This entire list tempts me all the time! I am the exact same way too when Dave goes out of town…CLEAN ALL THE THINGS!! Our challenge with keeping things tidy is that we only have a 1 bedroom apartment and every time we go home to NE…Dave’s parents send more of his stuff back haha. Even though I tell them we don’t have room!

    Probably every other month at Target I get a huge urge to shop. And I totally gave into that after the NASM test….but in my defense, workout gear is buy one get one half off right now!!
