Weekend Recap #4

So, I’m cranky today. This Monday and I are butting heads. Maybe it’s because I woke up at 3:45 a.m. with an excruciating migraine, so I took my migraine medication, reset my alarm (no Monday AM workout for me) and fell back asleep. Maybe it’s because when I did finally wake up, my head still hurt a bit AND my stomach felt awful. OR maybe it’s because I weighed myself, and I gained another half pound back (yes, I know that’s not a lot, but on a 5’1″ frame, I can feel it and it’s frustrating to go backwards … again). I’m just going to pop in some headphones and try to get out of this Monday funk. I’m one of those people that is rarely in a bad mood, so I don’t like feeling like this! Any ideas how to kick my ass out of this?


Well, one way is by tagging along with Katie and Meg for another weekend recap!

Friday I worked out in the morning, went to work and then headed to Appleton to check out a venue for an event I’m having in September. We ended up having lunch there, but we’d really only be using the bar area for our event. Still had a pretty view!


After a long day at my full-time job, I headed over to close at my part-time job. I ended up working pretty much on my own for the first time (which was scary/exciting) but it was pretty slow. Apparently Friday night wasn’t the night for working out this week!

Saturday I tried to sleep in, but only lasted until about 8 a.m. (though I laid in bed looking at social media until almost 9). Had some Spark, watched some YouTube and waited for my sister to wake up so I could force her to go shopping with me.


I don’t even know what I’m doing with my face. It was Saturday and I was bored. That’s what happens.

I was in a shopping mood, but (OF COURSE) I couldn’t find anything I wanted. I hate that! My clothing selection is so depleted, but when I go shopping I can’t find anything that A) I want to spend money on or B) that looks good. I did get a spring coat from TJ Maxx and a gym shirt from Target (because I have hot pink leggings and need a white shirt to tone them down).

That white shirt is very difficult to get a good picture of. Sneaky picture of my cat socks, too, if you can find them. πŸ˜‰

After shopping, I picked up some Chipotle (duh) and sat around on my couch for the night. I did end up going grocery shopping a little later at night and went to bed early. Such a party animal, I am.


Sunday started with a 5:45 a.m. alarm to get up for work and I woke up with a pretty bad stomach ache. Luckily it went away throughout the morning.

I got done with work a little after 2 and headed straight home to eat since I had yet to eat anything all day. Big mistake. I ate sooooo much food!


It probably doesn’t help that I had at least 4 glasses of chocolate milk throughout the night. I know they say that stuff is “healthy” for you, but seriously? It’s 140 calories for a cup. (P.S. I guarantee that glass I have in the picture is more than a cup.) Plus, Miss Dairy Intolerant here likes to pretend that the dairy in MILK won’t bother me. I’m a smart one.

Of course I never made it back to the gym like I had hoped, so I laid on the couch the rest of the night, watched some movies on TV, took a shower and did a tiny bit of meal prep for the week. I went to bed early thinking I’d get up to workout this morning, but unfortunately my body had other plans!


So that was my weekend – lots of work and being lazy. Oh well – you win some, you lose some, right?

Did you have a good weekend?
What do you do for the Monday blues? Or really, just any time you’re crabby? I’m struggling today.

      Both super good ideas! Plus, if I called my best friend right now, she’d probably be like, “Jessie, why the hell are you acting like this?!” She’s good at putting me in my place. πŸ˜‰

    • Jessie says:

      Ugh, well I hope you feel better soon, too. I’ve got my headphones popped in and my resting bitch face on so hopefully everyone just leaves me be until I can kick this cranky bug. πŸ˜‰

    I hate when unexpected overnight wake ups happen – and headaches you can’t kick are the worst! I feel you on the going backwards thing.. it’s so discouraging, but no worries I’m sure you’ll shed that half pound super quick! Sleeping in is most definitely not as late as it used to be for me too, but sometimes that’s nice I guess! You know, grocery shopping on a weekend night might not be a bad idea!

    • Jessie says:

      Yeah, it’s crazy! I’m hoping I can get rid of that half pound + more soon! I’m really hoping that I can hit this summer with my most confident self. I’ve been working hard this year so far and it’s hard when I feel like I’m going backwards!

  2. Megan says:

    Ugh, what a crappy way to start the week! Migraines are the worst too, especially during the night & then if they last throughout the day. Nothing wrong with Saturday night grocery shopping πŸ˜› I always go on Sundays & ask myself why I put myself through the crowds. Sometimes a good workout puts me in a better mood or just going to sleep! Hope the rest of your evening is good!

    • Jessie says:

      Thanks, lady! The rest of my evening turned out okay. After pouting on the couch for a few hours, I went to the gym and did some heavy (for me) work with my legs and I felt AWESOME. Today I’m feeling much better πŸ™‚

      • Megan says:

        By the way, I cannot figure out for the life of me how to get my email/comment settings to work! I wonder if they are going to your spam??

        • Jessie says:

          They’re not in my spam πŸ™ Maybe it’s just me for some reason! Though I do get emails from other bloggers when they reply …
