Yup, it’s Monday.

You know… just, Monday?? My computer restarted itself halfway through a post so I’m rewriting.  I got hit in the head with an acorn on my run this morning (which in itself wasn’t wonderful).  And it’s just kind of been Monday at work…lots of meetings, issues, etc.

BUT… I know, we choose our own attitude, right?  Like the FISH philosophy (highly recommended staff training material if you are not aware of FISH).  So, I’m choosing to still make the most of Monday.

I didn’t sleep well last night and woke up early.  Decided to go for a run, but wanted some quick energy, so figured it would be a great morning to try Slam (a condensed version of Spark- shot size).


My morning run was shorter than usual and I think I just didn’t get enough sleep to really fuel a long run.  But I ALWAYS think: would I regret it if I run right now- No.  Would I regret it later if I don’t run right now- Yes.

My breakfast needed a little extra protein so I opted for oatmeal, a spoonful of peanut butter, and a banana mixed together.  Good stuff.

At work- busy morning for sure.  Needed a little pick-me-up and my super sweet Coordinator picked me up a Starbucks Passionfruit iced tea.  Mmmm… thanks Syd!

Survived the morning with an apple snack, but was super hungry for some reason.  Finally got to my standard salad and felt a little better.  I know there are so many repeats of food in my life- I enjoy trying new things and new recipes, but convenience rules my life.  And I don’t mind repeating meals.  I honestly haven’t felt this good in a long time, so I prefer to eat veggies and fruit and feel awesome then to always have a culinary concoction that I don’t know the ingredients…

I really do feel awesome- I know I’ve already lost some weight/inches (still no quantifiable data- I’m waiting until day 11 for the first follow-up), and I honestly wasn’t expecting to see results that fast.  I definitely had some weight to lose, but still… it wasn’t that much.  I’m just really happy with the results so far!

Anyway, on with the rest of my Monday.

And for those of you following the Lamb Chop massacre:

Yes, she’s very proud.
