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?
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. 😉
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.
