Relax Week!

in All Posts

It’s going to be a GREAT week!


I know this because I’ve declared it RELAX WEEK.  Yes, I still have to work, but I’m going to do one nice thing for myself every single day to help me relax.  This morning I made time to put on a face mask and sent out e-mails to some old friends.  It was very relaxing and put me in a good mood.  🙂


Breakfast was uplifting, too!


A whole wheat waffle with a sliced banana, blueberries, and Oikos Greek yogurt. 


Plus, a generous dribble of maple syrup!


That, my friends, is what we foodies refer to as "food porn."  YUM!


Operation Beautiful


The Monday notes are posted!  Here’s my favorite of the day:

    i think relax week sounds like a great thing 🙂

    love the waffle, and I love that you gave the older woman your umbrella this weekend. That brought tears to my eyes. There are so many small things we can do each day to make someone else's day better and I love that Operation Beautiful is bringing this out in so many people.

  • Jocelyn June 29, 2009, 7:49 am

    Hey Caitlin- Your breakfasts always look so yummy! I was wondering if you had any good healthy and filling ideas for breakfasts on the go. I have to be at work at 7 am and it's hard for me to sit down and make a meal. Thanks! -Jocelyn

  • Sam June 29, 2009, 8:19 am

    Can't wait to see what other relaxing ideas you come up with throughout the week. I love face masks, they always make me feel so pampered!

  • Mrs. Myers @ Eat Move Write June 29, 2009, 9:11 am

    You must have read the same magazine I did! It was either Shape or Body + Soul that suggested taking an "off" week every so often and doing something nice for yourself the whole week. Sounds like a great idea. Enjoy!

  • Trainer T.s Fitness June 29, 2009, 9:49 am

    I love all your pics of food and it gives me great ideas. I have to try that greek yogurt for sure.

    I was at Women of Faith over the weekend, that was so inspiring for all women it reminded me of you 🙂

    Enjoy your day off!
