Case of the Mondays
Sorry for the lack of posting lately! It’s definitely been one of those days.
But hey, I’m feeling good and healthy, my Christmas tree is beautiful, my house is clean…it’s all good.
This morning, I had banana oats with PB for breakfast. Surprised?
All I keep hearing about from people today after this Thanksgiving holiday is that they are going to “go on a diet” or “not eat” for a while. What the heck?
Don’t do it people, it won’t work! Love yourself more than that. Please.
I skipped my usual Monday Starbucks run this morning because I was so full from breakfast (perhaps that’s where I went wrong, ha).
Eventually my appetite caught up and I snacked on an apple and Dark Chocolate Dreams.
I had soup planned for lunch but the bowl I brought to eat it out of fell onto the floor of my cubicle and shattered :(
I searched high and low at work and there were no spare bowls to be found. So I had to buy lunch today, which totally sucked (I hate spending money unexpectedly).
I decided to go to Einstein Brothers Bagels because I’d never been there before and it was one of the closest places to go (since it was cold outside and I was trying to avoid it).
I was frustrated and hungry when I got over there, always a deadly combination.
I ordered the “Veg Out” sandwich, which cost me $6.35! I could’ve got a bag of bagels, an onion, tomato, cucumber and head of lettuce for that much probably.
I don’t know what the sauce was (reminded me of a chipotle ranch) but I’m pretty sure it contained dairy and it even messed with my stomach a bit. I hate that because I didn’t know sauce came on it. Silly me.
This tasted alright and was filling but the high price tag (and the red onions) left a bad taste in my mouth. The bagel also did not work well as “bread” because everything fell out with every bite I took…very messy.
For $6.35, I could’ve at least gotten a whole meal at Subway. Will remember that next time (hopefully there won’t be one).
I snacked on some more Dark Chocolate
crack Dreams and then called it a day. Since I was seriously craving soup, I decided to take it home and make it for dinner!
Dr. McDougall’s soups rule! I still have two more to try after this.
This Roasted Pepper Tomato really hit the spot and made my nose run a little ;-)
The tortilla chips were a nice touch!
After dinner settled, I went for a really freakin’ cold walk with my friend Candy and then hit up Target to see if they had any good deals. I got a fleece and some more warm pajama pants for $20.
My in-laws early Christmas present came at the best time! :)
When I got home, I felt hungry again and even though I’d had my fair share of chocolate peanut butter, I’m apparently not tired of chocolate or peanut butter, individually.
I’m so glad Monday is over and I can’t wait to try again tomorrow. Really though, today wasn’t too bad. Could always be worse, right?
I should’ve expected a rough transition coming off a five day weekend, ha ha!
How do you deal with a case of the Mondays?
