Happy Monday?

It's not really a happy Monday. I'm not even sure there is such a thing as a happy Monday, maybe if I was on vacation, then it would be a happy Monday (vacation next month, and I can hardly wait!).

I just checked my work calendar for today and I have five meetings scheduled back to back, starting at 9 a.m. It makes me want to cry. Actually, it makes me want to get back under the covers and pretend I didn't look at my calendar for today. Maybe I could pretend it's really Sunday.

I'm getting ready to head out to the gym. No bike ride this morning because although it's 5 a.m. and today is the longest day of the year, the sky is barely light. Even without checking the weather forecast I know that means a heavy cloud cover. Okay, I just checked and yes, it shows black clouds and 51 degrees as the current temperature, with a high of 63 degrees today. Seriously, 63 degrees? It's the first day of summer. What the heck?

I'm not getting on the scale this morning (I weigh every day, in case your wondering). I overate last night. Not a binge, just too much good food at dinner. I made an awesome spaghetti sauce with ground turkey, onions, Portabella mushrooms, lots of garlic, and some Cabernet Sauvignon wine. I also ate about two pounds of the best Bing cherries of the season. Okay, maybe it did qualify as sort of a binge. However, I ate in front of my husband, and ate slowly and consciously, so in my book, that isn't really a binge.

I've also discovered I love a glass (or two) of Cabernet Sauvignon wine (Barefoot, it's cheap and delicious) which is what led to my stuffing my face last night. Since I put the spaghetti sauce over spaghetti squash it probably wasn't too bad, but I ate without weighing or measuring anything, and I didn't count Points.

I had two really good workouts Saturday and Sunday, but sans bike. Stupid rain kept me off my bike.

Today I'm back on the straight and narrow. Counting Points, drinking water instead of wine, eating regular portions instead of construction-worker sized meals. Happy Monday? Not so much. :)

I'd count it as a moderate day and just move on! You'll rebound just fine. I wish you could send me some good Rainier cherries! I'm not a fan of cherries, in general, but I adore those fresh-picked.

Do the best that you can to make it a happy Monday, even with back-to-back meetings. Perhaps they will be awesome!

Well, if you had a really crappy weekend, Monday looks pretty inviting. Looking forward to the structure of the work week. Wonder when summer is ever going to hit Washington...Jo

Diana, you need to move somewhere else. There is sun shining in the world and you're missing it!

Wow ... dinner sounds great and you can't go wrong with cherries. Not in my book.

You Wino, you. :D

You are right, there IS no such thing as a Happy Monday. Not in my world, anyway. I ate way too much over the weekend, too. But had a wonderful time with my daughter and grandkids. It was 102 here, today. I'd trade for your 63. :)

Your turning water into wine now? Oh.. I misread that LOL, Have a good week!

Grace said...

Yup, more crappy weather today. Who would know it is the first day of summer? I sure hope it gets better for the week surround the 4th. We've got a lot of company coming and if it rains the whole time...well, I'll just be pissed.

The training I was at was only for the one day...but I do get down near Sea Tac fairly regularly. I would LOVE to get together. I'll keep your number and give you a call the next time I'm gonna be around would be SO fun to meet you!

Back and catching up on blog reading. Hope your Monday was better than you anticipated.

Too bad we can't make the wine turn into water once it hits our digestive system, eh?

The title of this post is a joke, there's no new me. It's just the same old me, doing the same old stuff. Just for fun, I went back...
