Oooh Monday

Oh Monday, you’re here again.

A Lil' Tinkle to Start the Week

Here’s the truth, Monday: I pretend to hate you to fit in with the people at work who sigh “Ahh, Monday” in the elevators. If I’m being honest though, I don’t mind you so much. (You may see my “day of the week rankings” here. šŸ™‚ )

I like how Mondays always reset my healthy living goals after a weekend of more indulgent eating (hello soft serve x 1,000, cookies, apple crisp, wine, etc.). I also love Mondays motivate me to have a great workout right off the bat to start my day off on the right foot.


My Monday morning workout was a good one! I began my workout by taking a BodyPump class and followed it up with 20 minutes of light cardio on the elliptical with a wedding magazine.

Wedding magazines and celebrity gossip magazines are my gym-readings of choice because they’re full of pictures so I don’t have to slow down my workout to read anything. Whenever I catch myself reading, I always notice that my pace slows and my workout suffers a bit.


After my workout and a quick 20-minute with with Miss Sadie, my stomach was ready for some sustenance.

I made myself a big ol’ bowl of chocolate yogurt mousse topped with blueberries and sliced strawberries.

Berries + Chocolate Yogurt Mousse


This chocolatey concoction was the perfect healthy start to the workweek!

    I love Saturdays because I can get so much done, but I don’t like Sunday because I am anticipating the the wrok week ahead.

    My least favorite day is Sunday because it seems to fly by so fast. The mornings are always filled with volunteeering and the afternoon is recovery. Then the evening just keeps passing by so quickly and I keep thinking to myself “enjoy, enjoy!”

    Although it’s a bit different for me since I don’t work Mondays, just the husband does and we’re back to not seeing each other until the two hours between when he finally gets home and when we have to go to bed.

    My favorite day is Saturday! We’re rested and relaxed from not having to go to bed early the night before and we have the whole day to do whatever we want!

    I totally agree, I don’t hate Monday at all. Usually it’s a pretty good day because the apartment is clean and fridge is stocked from the weekend šŸ™‚

    Least favorite day goes to actually Friday, for the reason that I usually run errands on Friday evenings and I hate it. But it’s also nice once I’m home, and everything is chill, and I have the weekend to look forward too!

    I actually like Mondays, but not Sundays. Weird, huh? šŸ˜€

    This totally happens to my dog when she plays with her boyfriend. He always marks her šŸ™

    Mondays aren’t so bad to me either. My teaching is done by 10 am so I have most of the day free!!
