Anti-Procrastination Weekly Update



By the time you read this, I will have been in California visiting my friend Karen, going on day 4. I am writing it a day before I leave, and I am giddy excited!

My Karen and I met thanks to this blog. She is a survivor friend who was reading my cancer story and got in touch with me. Our hearts knitting and over the past 6 years we have been the best of friends, visiting each other as often as possible.

I am looking forward to my trip. We will be staying at Carmel by the Sea then head on to Lake Tahoe. Follow along at New Nostalgia’s Instagram account.

Obviously I won’t be meeting some of my weekly goals while out of town, but I plan on getting lots of reading done and will for sure be moving my body on hikes in the mountains and walks by the ocean.

Latest Obsessions

{some are affiliate links}


Eden’s Garden French Lavender Roller

I have written about my GAD (generalized anxiety disorder) and I’m so thankful medication keeps my anxiety low and bearable most days. If I ever have any breakthrough anxiety symptoms on more stressful days, I use Eden’s Garden French Lavender Roller. My anxiety manifests itself in my stomach…I will get a familiar knot or pit in my stomach and if it gets grows it can cause nausea. When I start to feel that, first I take a minute and talk to God about what is concerning me, then I make sure I have taken my meds on time. Then I will reach for my lavender roller and roll it on to my wrists or up on my collarbone. It is also great on the back of the neck if a tension headache starts to form. I have been amazed at how well this works to calm my spirit and nerves.

Ongoing Obsessions


Kindle Fire

This ongoing obsession with my Kindle Fire is not letting up. I especially love using it in the evenings when tucked in bed. It’s like my own perfect sized, personal television. Before I indulge in watching Netflix or Amazon Prime shoes,  I make sure I read at least a chapter or two of whatever book is on my Kindle. I love using the same device to both read and watch. It is going to come in very handy on my flight to Cali!

Essential Oil Diffuser

Still using it daily and love it! The Aromatherapy Essential Oil Diffuser by AromaSoft is amazing for getting the scent out into larger rooms. It is priced very reasonably and works so well! After buying 4 other diffusers, I did some research, read a ton of reviews, and bought this one. I’m so happy I did!


Recipes I’m Making This Week

{Watch my Instagram Stories for a glimpse of the making of these recipes. I often capture my cooking process!}

Since I will be gone this week, I am not making ANY recipes! Usually if I go out of town, I will prepare meals and freeze them, but now that I have teenagers, I gave myself a true break from cooking and they are on their own. I made sure I had lots of groceries on hand for them to choose from. I also bought food I don’t normally buy, (like frozen breaded chicken strips) and that delighted my girls. I do think they will miss my cooking after a week of processed food!
