I am loving Laura Viers. I stumbled upon her album in its entirety on the NPR Web site when I was previewing the new Vampire Weekend CD (also a goody). She is like the Regina Spektor to my Ingrid Michaelson right now.
Also made it through another day without purchasing anything indulgent or impulsive. I find that when my mind is not cluttered with the challenge of finding this sale or that, I have a lot more room for mental concentration on other more lasting goals. For instance, after a week of indulging myself in food and sitting on the couch for extended periods of time, I was able to run 2 miles last night, burn 200 calories, and do 150 sit ups, and I felt elated having done so. So setting small, more meaningful goals is helping.
