With a new week comes fresh opportunities to get your life together. Opportunities to clean things up a bit, give life to some good meal prep ideas, and bring out your planner to schedule the week ahead. It’s a clean slate for you to refocus your energy and to start becoming your best self. And by that, I 100 percent mean getting back to your healthy routines if you’re like me and have swan dived off the boat for the weekend (four outfit crises, nine episodes of Suits, and six margs later). Whatever mess I got into on Friday and Saturday doesn’t count, right?
