Well hello there, long lost friends! I kind of lost sight of these weekly check-ins during the holidays, but new year, new me, and new commitment to posting these regularly 😉 I had a bit of a chill weekend. It was the first weekend since before Thanksgiving that I had nothing to do and I totally took advantage of that. Lots of movies with the roomie, brunch, a workout class, organizing around the house and pizza delivery. Doesn’t that sound glorious?!
I’m gearing up for a big week with an all day meeting in Louisville tomorrow and leaving on Wednesday for my best friend’s wedding in Birmingham, AL. I am trying to eat a bit healthier, as I talked about in my 2018 goals + intentions, so I’m trying to cook more at home and meal prep better. We’ll see how this crazy week goes, wish me luck!
Highs & Lows
High: It was seriously so nice to have the weekend off. I needed some time to reset and get my wish in order.
Low: I had a little situation happen this week that made me seriously question what Lex Eats means to me and question my self worth and abilities. Long story that I can’t really share (and I hate being so cryptic, I swear it’s not intentional!) In the end, a reader sent me a really sweet unexpected message that totally changed my tune; so thank you if that was you!

Quote of the Week
My motto for 2018. Really trying not to glorify “busy”. It’s hard because I am busy, and I wouldn’t change that. It’s more that I don’t want to be that person who responds “busy” when someone asks how I’ve been. I want to be more prepared and intentional with my time. Let’s see how I do during this hectic week! Hope you have a great one!
