Before we get into it, I wanted to announce the winner to the Manna Organics Giveaway from last week!
Hey Emily! Please send me your mailing address so I can pass along your info and get your prize to ya! Yay!
It happened again, folks.
A long weekend. A long recovery on Sunday.
And then Monday rears its ugly head and forces me off my butt to once again become a productive member of society.
Probably a good thing. At least I know the set agenda by heart.
First thing is first- waking up.
Check. Yay me!
Second on the list- reintroduce things that aren’t fried or found in a candy bowl back into my diet. Oh and possibly apologize to my friend Mary for my and Laura’s ability to completely take down her leftover Halloween stash during our stay…Green is the color of the day. And week, if we’re lucky. Brussels sprouts may also be my vegetable of the week. I’m very streaky with food phases. They usually last about a week or two at a time. So I probably should have bought two bags of them at the grocery store instead of just one. (Good bye sweet potatoes and beta carotene, hello brussels and vitamin C!)
I also opted for tea in the afternoon instead of coffee or Diet Coke (a favorite as of late- whoopsies). Our office has really stepped it up with the tea selection, so I went for Tazo “Awake” black tea.Did it do the job?
The magic 8 ball says “it’s decidedly so”.
Which sounds about right.
Even with a few days off to
run rampant travel, the next step on my list, the workout, went swimmingly.
Or runningly? A 3-mile run and 20 minutes on the elliptical. It’s like the weekend was sweating out of my body.
It probably grossed out everyone around me. *Hanging head in shame.”
All in all, the day was a healthy start to the rest of my week. Quite similar to many Mondays before it.
If only I wouldn’t tend to expel so much activity into my weekends and have more days like this “just because”.
